Definitely agreed. The workbook should help a lot in finding out how
well you know our development world. We should refer to it in our
documentation a bit more.

about "did they get a lot of stuff done?" and "did they work well with
others?". Recreating Debian NM in Ubuntu would probably shift the focus.

Have a great day,
