[Tutor] ideas

I have been considering this myself recently. 
Certainly, while there is a wealth of resources aimed at teaching python
or general programming techniques I found myself (personally) wanting
somewhere to get some structured material. Finding excuses to program
something in python isnt always the best way to learn quickly. 

What do people think regarding the creation of a monthly or bi-weekly
'assignment' which could be posted on the list or on it's own list,
complete with relevant material/links? The following edition could
contain the previous one's solution and invite feedback perhaps.

Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

I'd be happy to give up a few hours to sketch together a  bi-weekly or
monthly edition. However being dependant entirely on submissions of a
suitable calibre would there be sufficient enthusiasm?

I would think it could be done without too much fuss? Specially if the
assignments were kept (purposefully) small, 15-20 lines tops?

We could concentrate on interesting modules and the kinds of simple
things; assignments, loops, arrays, tuples etc. of which all larger
programs are composed.
