Looks nice, starting to look it over.


Getting started:

There are RPM packages available (I think they are for latest Fedora; in
case of doubt get the latest SRPM and build yourself, sometimes the
distros lag /way/ behind). There are also Debian packages there, dunno
about those.

Basic tasks:

'git pull' should be enough, no need to give the URL each time.
It is useful to tell people how to get "nonofficial" branches (via URL +
branches) too.

Miscellaneous debris:

'git pull' has gotten tags each time for me?
