      Fair enough, we have docs for all those deals, they just haven't been adapted. The ones I made were
      for the 4e folks, so we'd need to alter them slightly, but they're still valid.

      Flagging for a Tracker Monkey.

      TM - Two Requests:
      1) Need to fix the location of the My_Dataset to the Homebrew Folder
      2) Notes added to the top of each class pointing out a PCC file is required to load any homebrew LST
      files. Make a link to the Class would be awesome.

      Cheers,

Then all the references to my_dataset were in the data/ folder, later found it in data/homebrew/. So after trudging through some examples I think I figured it out.
