Zed Shaw and Learning Python The Hard Way

Zed has started an interesting experiment on Learning Python the Hard Way.

Looks to be an effective approach to learning Python, but I’m more intrigued by the tools used. From a set of text files in a fossil repository there is a make file that builds the complete book as a PDF file. Seems like it could be something I could use for other projects, the only awkward bit about it being the size of the TeX installation needed to support the pdflatex generation process.
