Yes, that's correct.  Also GNUstep is spelled "GNUStep" on the page a number of times.  It should be changed to use the proper capitalization.

I'm wondering what happened.  Is it still possible for us to get this done?

A critical piece of this, I think, is that these tutorials are written in the same style and voice. These tutorials could be supplemented by a "More Tutorials" page.
