"Yes we can ask oscar and after will host it also at books.pharo.org and in
HTML version too as for all the other books.
Damien P and Damien C are working on a better latex template for pillar
generated books."

great to hear, I think not just UPBE but the other books need to be the
first thing a newcomer sees when he or she introduced into Pharo because I
think Pharo documentation is far better today that it used to be 2 years
ago and we need to show the people all the hard work we have done with it.

"pay attention. I think that we should minimize UI elements and external
frameworks because else we will have more work in 4 years from now. "

What do you mean ? As you know I am a supporter of pharo modularity but I
fail to see how that is related to UPBE and I dont think documenting
external frameworks is the focus of UPBE anyway just document what there is
in the pharo image by default at least the core stuff that an average user
is most likely to use.

By any forms of tutorials and articles I did not mean that I will cram
those in UPBE, if they refer to external third party libraries then I will
document them in another book. But I was referring to tutorials and
articles concering things that are part of the pharo image and they are
beginner orientated. For example I am looking at documentation about code
critics, update to the pharo catalog docs, Versionner , Kommiter etc
