:-) But the future is right now still in a state where needs some
polishing, but some people in the community have started to do this
(which I am very grateful about).

We are heavily working on that, and I hope that we can release
comprehensive documentation around the snowboard tour, or maybe a little

I think we all know that there are still some glitches to be corrected,
and I am very happy that there are already people using Extbase/Fluid,
as they help us identify and fix many of the issues you experience in
I think right now, it'd be beneficial for many people to look into the
blog example, just to get a feeling how working with Extbase is like. We
will support this much more in the future with proper documentation; I
think this is an area which is badly needed.

Not at all ;-)
PS: Disclaimer: I'm one of the authors of Extbase, and the maintainer
for Fluid ;-) So maybe it can be interesting to see the opinion of
people who just started with it.
