While that tutorial is outdated, it is way more comprehensive on some aspects than the contributor guide we use in Replicant.

You are right. With 444 slides the linked PDF from the last issue update is way more comprehensive than most of the tutorials I have seen before. But, what is the aim of this issue? A guide about "android system development" is not the same as a guide about "how to contribute to Replicant". At the time of writing, the wiki has two kind of information. (1) General information about how to contribute. (2) Two specific guides about porting Replicant to version 6 and 4 respectively. So, there are many possible things to make the contribute section more comprehensive. Shall we talk about that first? What would be of high priority? An additional guide for porting to a specific Replicant version? Some information that are important for contributing in general?
