in thread Page not found issue while accessing a link from perl monk's tutorial

FWIW, I agree with the above, except for having strong reservations about:

it may be appropriate to transfer ownership of the node to pedagogues while adding brief content to the top of the node noting (and thanking) the original author and explaining why ownership was changed.
I'm not able to think of a situation where creating a new node owned by pedagogues wouldn't be better. Though that causes a problem since you can't have two tutorials with the same title, and the existing title may be the ideal one. Does the original get (author) appended? Does it get "downgraded" to a meditation? I don't see a perfect solution.

    Now that this has had time to rattle around in my brain, I think the best choices are 1) to have janitors make minor fixes where appropriate (consideration is probably the best way to submit requests for such). If more extensive "improvements" are warranted, then 2) someone needs to make those improvements and when they finish them, they just need to post the new version like anybody else would (and include a link to the original) and the pedagogues will change the link in Tutorials to point to the new version.

    In the unlikely event of a group of more than 1 person effectively taking on joint, on-going responsibility for extensive changes to some tutorial(s) (seems very unlikely), we can consider a wiki-like tutorial. No need to burn that bridge until we get to it.

    As for what is appropriate for janitors to do to Tutorials, my first stab at a guiding principle is to respect the authorship. That is, objectively technical corrections should be inbounds and nothing else. And if the correction can't be adequately described in the small "consideration" text field, than a reply is probably a better first step.
