Yes please !!!

Having hacked a bit on fonts, I know how difficult and how involved this
field is (it really is bordering an art form) - do you gents have any
ideas on how we can bring other people up to speed to develop/enhance
and/or improve upon fonts (or even create new ones) ?  Could some
tutorials be developed to demystify this field for others ?  How can
this be made easier for newbies to get into ?

The idea was and continues to be (with respect to any field and not
fonts specifically either) to establish enough knowledge within
in order to disseminate that knowledge to educate others who will
hopefully turn around and do the same (ie. mentoring program if you
will that will foster and build a community).
