I had similar problems when I first started reading MOTU
documentation, some sections are very long-winded, I think in some
cases it's very difficult to keep it short and still explain
everything that needs to be explained. What I found quite useful is
the classes that took place in #ubuntu-classroom over the openweeks
and developer weeks. I think it's especially useful when something
tiny that could be a blocker gets in the way and then someone could
ask about it immediately.

Perhaps it would be better to fix up the current documentation,
updating it and perhaps break some of the larger pieces into smaller
chunks, and also have more classes available and make more videos,
rather than starting a new docs project from scratch for this?
