This is a good example of something that is enough for us but confusing 
for the general public. See

where we still have the SVN commands (which WILL work and give you the 
frozen SVN trunk, with no indications that this is frozen; it is now 
easy to say that we should have added a last SVN commit mentioning git), 
then the new git command, then notes like "You can use git as well. 
There exists no guide for this, therefore ask on dev@, if you want to 
use git".

I would be for only listing the git commands, re-reading the entire page 
and re-writing the sections that mention SVN.

Old versions of the page are easily visible to everybody, so we can use

as "the latest version before the switch to git" in case.

For sure, once one has properly ported



things will be much clearer to the public, but also to us (the fact that 
I see patches sent by mail, and not link to pull requests, makes me 
think we are still unclear about our own processes).

I will start with updating page 1 above; I think this will leave me with 
some questions about what conventions we are using for git, so it will 
be a useful exercise.
