Thanks for the excellent feedback and answers, we definitely welcome the feedback. I'll try to answer what I can...
Style...we are working towards sticking to one main font for the text body (normal and mono version), it'll take time for us to get that in place but most should have it (titles can be whatever though). Also, we have been looking again at what we can use for producing the mag, next month we may be using the same software (will depend on how we get on, so no promises yet). Anyway, we are learning (I hope) what works and what doesn't so we will listen to what everyone has to say.
StopPress...yeah I 2nd that. Will see if that can be "revised".
In Control...croc clips would be a danger, but it does need to be clear how best to connect (an image would help I think). Labels would be obvious choice, while explaining the colour bands would be helpful, as you can see it is a monster of an article already (hopefully that can be covered another time if needed). As for the breadboad, it will be difficult to suit all models out there, it does give an idea on how to implement the circuit, hopefully not too difficult to transfer to another board if needed (there is a range of variations out there). LEDs - That is what I did when I tested the GPIO, although I like the circuit arrangement which Darren has chosen. If he can fit it in, then no problem, leaves room for people to have something to experiment with and expand on once they have got to that point.
I guess it is a hard balance between low basics and building up skills and content, in very little space!
Debian, yep he was working with a VM, we can assume that not everyone will not have a RPi, and even when we do all get them in the team we probably need to remember that some will still be running VMs etc. After-all, the RPi is just one way to run the programs.
IDE - Geany has been used a lot so far, but I think Joe was mentioned by Eben in a few videos. At the moment, I don't any of us have strong feelings about any particular one (personally I've switched between the built in Python one and Geany, but I've not done too much yet). Perhaps someone would like to write a IDE showdown, to advise what is good about each!
Python Pit - The linefeed paper...I think toning it down a little would be fine, it is certainly something which I like and makes it clear what is code and what is article text (at the very least you have a clear idea of how much you need to type).
Anyway, thanks for the great comments!
pwllheli - Really glad you found it helpful, there is a big learning curve as soon as you open up that anti-static bag, and as I've found when writing the guides, there are lots of little things which can easily trip people up when plugging it in for the first time (although credit is due, the distros are being improved all the time). I think it is paramount that people can start started as quickly and easily as possible, each bump they encounter is a nudge closer to giving up on it, I want people to be confident that they can pick it up, get started and feel happy they can show others how to do it too.
Resize partitions page - Thanks for the info, I think I'll change it to suggesting you run from the start menu and if problems they can use the commandline.
SDCard Readers - The SDCard setup and PiSetup recommend a card reader, by this stage they will probably worked out if they have an issue with their builtin one, if they are using it.
How to start GUI - The layout for this is going to be redone, with some additional info too.
Super-powers - this won't make it in this issue anyway...but it is something which could do with explaining with exceptional clarity. Plus would like some nice "superRpi" artwork for it!
Scratch Patch - Yep there should be more coming.
