The Documentation Playground
This is a place to toss around ideas, write up simple recipes and create drafts of things that may eventually go into the official documentation.
If you add something here, please be sure to specify which TurboGears version you're using at the top of the document. Wikis can get stale very easily.
Don't forget to read the TurbogearsFaq first.
In preparation for the 0.9 release, documentation will be migrating from here to svn. Documents with (migrate) after them will be moving.
