I am wondering about this comment from your announcement:

If this is the case, it would be interesting to know exactly what stands in
the way of doing a hands-on tutorial on the AG. Would you or someone
involved in this effort or anyone who's already tried it like to try and
collect a set of requirements, or just write down reasons it is hard to do
on the AG today, so perhaps these requirements can be addressed by the AG

I recall that there was a GLOBUS tutorial in 01 that involved some hands-on
work and seemed to go ok. Was that sponsored by PACS? Does anyone remember
that? I also believe there are some lessons learned on teaching and the AG
from Montana, New Mexico, Alaska and other folks who have run AG courses.
