Hi Doug,

most ROS tutorials should be Distro agnostic. Some tutorials which are 
related to build system differences have been adapted with the 
introduction of catkin, but that does not mean electric is not supported 
by them.
Some tutorials about setting up a workspace may tell users to e.g. use 
/opt/ros/fuerte for commands, and electric users are expected to use 
/opt/ros/electric then, this is not nice, but users are free to edit the 
wiki, best by adding a note that "fuerte" must be replaced with whatever 
distro the users uses, or change that into /opt/ros/<distro>

So maybe you can say which tutorials in particular you mean?
