I've started a new thread for this, in response to Alex Thurgood's comments
on Base docs.

My opinion FWIW is that Base related stuff is desperately needed, including
a full Base Guide. We've been rebranding the OOo user guides as an initial
set for LibreOffice, but the Base Guide has never been written. Three draft
chapters (badly in need of editing) exist, but that's all. One could build
on that, and the Base Gyude outline, or start from scratch. Of course, other
Base-related materials would be useful, too. IMO the "Getting Started with
Base" chapter is quite good, so we wouldn't want to duplicate that.

I personally don't have much database experience beyond the trivial, but I'm
good at testing, critiquing, and editing, revising... if only we can find
some database people to write an initial draft!

I appreciate that developing the Base portion of the website should probably
take priority over the much longer, more ambitious work needed on a Base


I haven't looked for any Base tutorials, but if any exist that would be useful info. And there are certainly lots of other tutorials, it would be good to start some exploration about rebranding those, too.
