I wrote what I call a "chronological PTL guide" for nova [3], which was 
originally a local google doc I had used while I was PTL. I converted 
and published it as an in-tree nova doc in case it would be helpful to 

I think having a PTL guide doc is nice and could potentially make it 
easier for new or prospective PTLs to learn what is involved in the duties.
