Requests for a beginner tutorial come up from time to time, and we
don't have one. THere are various docs on the internet but they are
not maintained. I have added a new task to the issue tracker to note
that we need one.
One question I have is whether it would be better to make this a
separate document (easier to link to) or as part of the main manual
(easier to distribute). As part of the problem is the sheer size of
the existing docs I am favouring the separate document approach. This
would be done using the existing doc build system, so it can still be
translatable and use some of the same screenshots.

How does merge tracking work? Please keep your answer to less than
5000 words ;-)
