I was hoping to find something that would give an overview of how other 
people approach the problem. What I have in mind is a lab manual for a 
set of yet t be decided exercises. I have an example from a Redhat 
course, but thought there might be something more suitable out there 
that gave a look behind the scenes of how it formed. The first iteration 
would be rough for sure that I understand. It's getting something to the 
point that it is usable so that it would be adopted that's the objective.
