Back in Melbourne circa 2010/11, Jodie, Jared and I used to run a [monthly vegan mentoring group][vegan-month]. I have gone back through the mailing lists and collected much of the curriculum and information from the program into this single document, so that I can distribute it more widely. The program was designed not just to get you through the first month nutritionally, but to expose you to a variety of foods and ideas that may be new to you. It emphasises that veganism is a shift sideways, not a sacrifice.

Pull requests are not serving me well on large reviews. Here are some problems and suggested enhancements that would make me happy.
- Mark comment as "resolved" (see google docs for an example). As code changes, comments get lost or made redundant, and it is not clear (to either the author or reviewers) which are still relevant and which have been addressed. Resolving a comment doesn't need to make it dissappear, but I need to be able to see "which comments have not been addressed" somehow. This feature would be the most useful to me.
- Reply to a comment. This can be done in effect on line comments (assuming there is only one), but cannot on PR comments. Particularly with many threads, the lack of this makes a review hard to follow.
- Explicit "approve/block" life cycle. The block is actually more important to me ... often on a PR that has been incrementally improved I want to "block" final merge of it until I get a chance to rebase/squash and generally pretty it up. The block can be over

|Aug 2005: Try going vegetarian, lasts a week. Mostly cooked the same stuff sans-meat. FAIL.|
|Nov 2005: Go to a lecture by Peter Singer, cannot disagree, so become vegetarian. I knew one other vegetarian at this point.|
|Sep 2006: Go vegan for 30 days. Tried replacing yoghurt with soyghurt BAD MOVE. Did not know vegan desserts existed. Reverted after 30 days, but ate "more vegan".|
|Apr 2008: Go vegan for a 6-day hike, didn't feel like eating animal products after. Haven't since.|
|Jan 2008: Cut out bread and cereal for 30 days ("raw-ish until dinner"). Reverted - expensive and you need to be on the ball with shopping habits - though eat a *lot* more fruit now.|
