The gitwash docs so far have the idea of a spectrum of experience - so
we were trying to cover:

1) User who just wants to run from the latest source, but will not do
edits (just git clone)
2) Someone who has done some small edits (bugfix, docs) but with not
much experience (make patches and email)
3) Full on developer (feature branch, pull request)

I wonder if in fact we want to extend the distinctions to:

3a) Developer fairly new to git (feature branch, pull request, never
rebase nor merge)
3b) Developer with a lot of git experience (feature branch, rebase,
pull request)


See y'all,
