Hi Daniele,

Thanks a lot for following up on this!

I've pushed your branch up to pytest's repository and enabled building it
on RTD so people can more easily take a look at it:


I did a quick glance and I like what I see so far. Having separate
tutorial/how-to guides/reference documents seems like a great improvement
because a common complain regarding pytest's docs was the fact that there
was no clear distinction between those different types of documentation.

>From my part I'm +1 on continue to work on this. :)
