We shall certainly be covering setup of the SD card. While we were writing Issue 1, none of the team actually had a Raspberry Pi to test our own tutorials on. We wouldn't want to put instructions out there without testing that they work properly, plus the fact that linux distro's for the Pi are constantly being refined and improved upon at the moment. It is still not 100% clear in my mind whether Fedora will be the standard distro (As the FAQ page states), Debian, Arch or something else. Liam Fraser mentioned in his video that there were still some issues with the Fedora ARM distro. Eben was running Debian in his recent webinar on 'Programming the Raspberry Pi', which is why I suspect that Debian will end up being 'the one'.
There are a few other inconsistencies, which I'm sure will be sorted out in time. For example, Eben's video on programming was using Python 2, as are the downloadable python examples on this site. Eben's video also used the 'JOE' text editor, which doesn't appear to come as standard with the non-ARM distro's of Debian that I have seen. Also it has been stated by the makers of the official manual that Python 3 will be the supported version.
We don't want to jump the gun here, which is why we held back from that type of article prematurely, and then finding that the early articles of The MagPi are no longer relevant or correct. These are still very early days for the Raspberry Pi - but I am sure things will fall into place over the next few months.
