I know how to use git and I think it's easier to unwittingly screw up
with git and end up with no feet. ;) So, personally I think it's good
to have this guide be quite detailed and explicit and perhaps have a
warning that if people are unsure, they should ask.

I can quite well imagine someone screwing up a bit and making
something messy happen in the public repo and then someone who knows
how to use git exploding all over them for doing so. Or people may be
more tolerant of mistakes and we just fix them as we go, I dunno.
