I spent all of today editing the rest of the borrowed pointer tutorial, and then the overall Rust tutorial, which is pretty big. It took a surprising amount of time for me to get my comments transferred from the page to the screen.

Now that I've read all the tutorials, I'm pretty impressed with the quality of our Rust documentation! I had lots of edits since I'm a huge pedant about grammar and style, but those were almost all minor issues. Of course, it's easy to think that documentation is good when it's about something you already understand, but I also feel like I learned something about the corners of Rust that weren't so known to me. I know that the quality of documentation has a huge effect on whether people who aren't in the in-group can start contributing to a project, so I'm glad I've been able to spend a tiny amount of time on it, though there's still a lot that should be expanded on to lower the barrier to entry.

I'm hoping that we're going to release 0.4 tomorrow, but even if we don't, after spending almost two days just on docs, I should probably get back to coding :-)
