Description

Hi,

I've been working through the tutorial and I find frequently I make a mistake and its very hard to get the files back to a condition that you can continue working on the tutorial. As there is no reference to say how exactly the files should be at some particular point.

I think it would be beneficial if at each tutorials chapter heading there was a way to get the tutorial files as they should be to continue on with the tute.

It is also a bit confusing when the instruction is to "Add the following to...." You can be left wondering if you have done it correctly and there is no reference to check with. For example on https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.6/intro/tutorial04/ the part "add the following to polls/views.py"

This is commonly-requested, but there is a general reluctance to do this.

The main reason is that working (and struggling) through all the tutorial's steps while doing it all by hand is an important part of the learning process.

There would be some advantages to having a repository of the tutorial code, but so far it has not been felt that they are worth effort of maintaining one.
