Just took a look. I don't know about "perfect," since the writing leaves
something to be desired, and one of the first steps is to install
apt. ;-)  I also notice there's some superfluous use of CPAN when the
author could just "yum install perl-HTML-Parser" and so on.

Another item of note is that the tutorial in question is marked "All
rights reserved," thus legally encumbering the material.  Why don't you
see if you can (1) convince the author to FDL the contents, and (2) edit
it yourself into a more coherent narrative that uses Fedora technical
standards?  The subject matter itself seems like a good idea for
coverage.

Followups to fedora-docs-list please, the FDSCo list should be reserved
for steering committee matters wherever possible, and has fewer readers
in any case.
