 Tutorials for absolute beginners make use of the "Download sample
 location" button in the Data tab.

 An "Open mapset" is still under consideration. Consider creating an issue.

 Carolina dataset."

 Now the data is at least visible in Data tab in way or the or the other
 which hopefully mitigates some of the initial confusion and leaves some
 energy for the next steps.
