Yes, agree that the resulting cookbook needs to be easily
discoverable.  Perhaps that means that if you install a guile-doc
package, it appears as a top-level Info item like Guile Reference
does.  Perhaps it doesn't need to be quite as specific as that.
(Although personally I really like doc being available locally, e.g.
in Info form, instead of always going online.)

But as you also say...

Yes, definitely feels right to crowd-source this, instead of having it
centralized in the core Guile repo.

It feels to me that with the right structure in place, people will
readily come and contribute the detailed material to it.  So it's
worth spending a little time to decide the right structure.

Best wishes,
