Ok thanks, I understand now :)

Sorry I don’t understand the point. The reason for having 2 tutorials is 
explained here: http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/DevGuide/FAQTutorial/

Thanks

Good point. If you follow exactly both tutorials instructions you’ll have 
collisions since they both create the FAQ app in the FAQ space.

Since I didn’t have the time to update the FAQ tutorials (would have needed to 
redo several screenshots, etc), I’ve added a warning at the top of both 
tutorials.

Please check it out and let me know if it’s ok and understandable.

Thanks

Oh, and a note about *why* it's ok to have the two tutorials which create an
application named FAQ would be useful, if it is the case.

Thanks for that. Now, since I already created a mini FAQ using the "Apps
within Minutes" FAQ tutorial, do I have the risk of namespace collision if I
follow the more advanced tutorial that you just edited? Or are they somehow
isolated? Many new users will do the "Apps within Minutes" FAQ tutorial and
next the tutorial that works with XWikiClasses...it might be worth adding a
note that it's ok to have the two identially named artifacts in the wiki; or
change the name of one of the tutorials if they can't co-exist as named.

I’ve now fully updated the tutorial. Please check it out and let me know if you 
succeed in following it:
