I regret there are not. Most of the open-source examples were
contributed without code, and very often the producing app was
probably closely tied to the author's framework and data sources.

Both ReportLab's staff and our contributors have generally failed to
find the time to go back and create clean, well-commented and
sanitised teaching examples after finishing a project. We'd really
welcome some examples though. Regrettably within the company almost
all our work in the last 5 years was with RML, so we don't have any
relevant examples.
