I really don't know if docs should be first or second :-)  I believe second
should be better since it takes longer to have than installability and with
them you can already have a huge step towards examples.  It is nice,
though, seeing that they are a priority.

I'm a newbie with RL, but if I can help, I'm willing to offer some time with
that.  I need to start using it and getting to know it better ;-)

Me too, but not so long ago.  Setuptools works much better for me.  To the
point that my first attempts are always with it and only then, if I get
some error message, I use distutils.
