This is a problem for lots of free software projects :(

As a professional developer (my job) who works 5 days a week in a very 
well known-to-me environment I would love to see more free software 
projects having "dumb" tutorials to help bootstrapping and understanding 
these new environments. Because it really takes lot of free time just to 
go from
     "hey nice software, I would like to help"
     "ok now I can compile and run it in step-by-step mode on my own pc"
