Yes, I found amazing that such a thing was produced in such a short
amount of time. It can't be expected to be perfect and totally
up-to-date with bleeding edge knowledge on security, but can be a very
good start for introducing a lot of topics, provided that some mistakes
are corrected (e.g. the file shredding things).

In any case the initiative is excellent. It could deserve translations
in other languages.

I was wondering if a LaTeX file + git repository could be a good idea?
Any comment on this?
