[Orgmode] Tutorials

today I have a request/proposal to make.

If you look around of the web and search for "emacs" and "org-mode",
you will see that the two documents that had the biggest impact
in getting new users interested in Org-mode are

- David O'Toole's Tutorial of basic structure and TODO lists

- Charles Cave's writeup about Org-mode and GTD at

The impact of these two document has been huge, much more than
the manual or my (admittedly quite boring) web page.

This is why I tink it would be great to have more tutorials.
There are several areas where a step-by-step tutorial,
with lots of screen shots in the way David wrote his
could be easily made.

If you have been thinking about a way to give a contribution
back to Org-mode (and I know there are people who did),
this might be a way to do this without having to be a Lisp

Areas I can think of, which could be well describe with
a tutorial with screen shots are:

- Table editor basics
- Formulas in tables
- Hyperlinks
- Setting and using Tags
- Properties and column view
- Timestamps and project planning
- How you, personally, use Org-mode for plannig and
  monitoring your tasks (we could have *many* of those).

The summer break is near, and you cannot sit on the
beach for ever :-)
