Hi Sandy,

great job. However I miss some docs for maintainers of new modules.
In freedesktop when you have a new empty repository, you can't clone
that repository (something that sounds like the natural first step,
specially for people used to subversion). So you have to create your
own repository, push it, and then set the origin properly.

I found this step pretty confusing at the time.
