I think it's okay to discuss in haskell-cafe.

I'd like to contribute too but I have little time nowadays trying to finish 
writing my msc. thesis. I do have a few suggestions though:

1. Using wiki does not seem to be a bad idea. You may also consider using a 
word processing system such as LaTeX though. It's easy to convert LaTeX to 
html and it yields very quality prints as you all know. However, for true 
collaboration wiki is the king. There is already a nice Haskell wiki 
appropriate for such a project IIRC.

2. I don't think following the outline of a class based imperative language 
will be fitting for a high quality Haskell tutorial. I think you should look 
at OcaML tutorial and the python tutorial, and combine ideas from both as 
well as your own :)
