Hi Steve,

It was mainly just to let the PSC know that work is ongoing on the 
tutorials, albeit slowly.
Probably no need for comments on the sessions until a decent first draft 
is available. Then it would be good to review if the map files follow 
any "best practices" of MapServer use. I guess votes on the RFC would be 
One item that would be good to get comments on is the use of a live 
server for the tutorials. The MapServer docs are available as PDFs, so 
the OpenLayers component would be missing from these, likely rendering 
the tutorials fairly useless for offline review.
