some work already started,

It would be Very nice if someone updated "Visual Tutorial for GRASS 6"
by Lorenzo Moretti for GRASS 6.2 + gis.m.

There are already several made:

The vast majority of LiveCDs are Debian derived, so a critical step is
getting a good GRASS 6.2.1 pacakge into Debian. For now things are
frozen for the upcoming release; a 6.2.0 package awaits in the
experimental repository, a 6.2.1 package meta-exists in the DebianGIS
SVN and awaits upload.

http://www.slashgeo.org is a nice receptive place to start.

The GRASS Newsletter is a great forum for user relations too.
