We're currently still seeking someone to help upgrading/maintaining
tutorials. Also pages for educators (downloads, links, mentioning this
list, etc) would be nice.
I wouldn't mind doing some work on this, but only about 3 hours per week or so, cause I have very few time.
Maybe you could send me a more detailed version of what must be achieved and how I can help on it.
It would be good to start redoing / adding stuff on the site.
