Hi Paul,

Glad you finally got it working!

It is incredible how git has become easier to use in the last couple of
years and hosting git repositories is now a no-brainer thanks to github.

However, distributions are still shipping older versions and even the
latest ones still require someone to give you a 5 minutes crash course
if you want to get started in no time, otherwise you need to poke around
the documentation a little bit.

I'm sorry about your initial experience, but I'm fairly sure that if I
were sitting next to you, I could have gotten you jump-started in no
more than 7 minutes. I hope as you progress you will see that your
initial investments in learning git pay off generously.

I'll look into the pull request as time permits...

Sincerely yours,
Yury V. Zaytsev
