Do you think it can be helpful enough?

I mean, if we are talking about existing articles only, I think that even a 
beginner can read catalystframework.org and Catalyst advent articles from 
previous years.

And yes, I think you are right about the reasons of not too much 
contribution in the last period...

Maybe it would require a smaller effort to just create a page with links to 
the recommended articles, and I think the recommended articles for a 
beginner should be those who allow him to create a web site with little 
effort, not the best posible which may be hard to understand by a beginner.
