Ah... good question... let's see... it looks like
you're aiming to finish some amount of review by 2007-06-30.
Go ahead and focus on review until then. I get the impression
the tutorial stuff can easily wait a couple weeks.

As to forking jello, again, I don't see it that way.
Concurrent iteration may seem like chaos, but I think
it's actually a pretty good process.
