Dist::Zilla online tutorial, first pass

I think I’ve finished all the pages I meant to write for the Dist::Zilla Choose Your Own Tutorial. It covers a bunch of Dist::Zilla topics like creating a new dist, converting an existing one, and adding new behavior to your configuration. The “choose your own” format should make it easy to add new content, like a wiki, but I like the almost-linear feel of the format.

I also really like being able to say that The Perl Foundation paid me to write a Pod-based Choose Your Own Adventure system.

With this done, the only thing left to do is finish overhauling the way that dzil new works! I predicted this work could be done within a quarter (of a year) and I think I’m definitely on track for that.
