At the very end of lesson two there is this suggestion:
"Edit the file, and you'll see it uses a template variable called app_list. That variable contains every installed Django app. Instead of using that, you can hard-code links to object-specific admin pages in whatever way you think is best."
At this point in the tutorial there has been no discussion of the template formatting language and it is unclear how one would go about completing the suggested task if he or she wanted to limit the apps to non-admin apps, for example. The means of 'hard coding' the links has not yet been addressed. Given that I think it is silly to even have this section in the tutorial.
