It needs more than revision, IMHO. The current document is just a few
links to topics that new users perhaps *should* read but probably won't
be interested in. I don't think that they anticipate the needs of new
users particularly well.

Cooperating with the Beginners' Team [1] will be essential if we're to
produce something that new users will find really helpful.

There isn't anyone working on it that I know of. It would be great if
you could take the lead on this.

The mailing list would be ideal. Looking forward to hearing your ideas!
