I love the idea too. The only thing I might suggest is holding on to
this until after Beta (during which time anyone can still download
it), but building excitement for GA.
That sounds like the best idea to me. So if we had this lined up and
ready in advance for post-beta announcement, I think we could have the
greatest impact then too. Let's aim for that!

Ha, spoken like a grizzled editor, Justin! :-) I could go either way,
but I think your rationale here makes a lot of sense.
Okay, so let's shoot for a single, comprehensive article, and if we have
the time and resources to split them into three, we can do that as a
stretch goal for this.
Huiren, if you have any questions about getting started or writing the
article, let us know. :) Thanks!

I'm huge +1 and thanks to both of you for great input.
