I like it!

This is a (very clear) technical description. I think we should add one
or two things in the section "Modify the branch":

It now contains /"At this point it's up to you what to do with your new
branch.//"/ which is fine.

But I think we should add some hint that if people create a new feature,
or a bugfix, or some parts for the docs, or an example, it is often wise
to consult the mailing list if that is a good idea. Maybe other people
are working on the same thing too. If it is a larger feature it is good
to post a sort of implementation plan to check if the feature, and the
implementation, is what is expected.

Also we should refer to the coding guidelines.

Regards, Barend
