Possible, yes. Just not sure how recommended it is. At least based on one
or two extensions I saw that claimed to embed from Git, there were notes on
possible security issues. We will also have to check with sysadmin how to
properly link from Git. But yes, should be technically possible.

I think so. Considering these tutorials would be used by both external
developers and incoming internal contributors, they should cover that

Do we still want to have all the tutorial hosted on the same website?

Tough question to answer as I wasn't there when the discussion took place
and I'm just working based on what was decided back then. So that'd be a
"yes" by default.

Given that we're an international community, yes here as well. That said,
the MediaWiki translation extension is such a painfully fragile system. :(

We currently don't but we should. Copying and pasting code from web pages
is really inefficient for running the samples.
