Here's the main Git specific pages we already have: - Home page

I've tried to keep them up-to-date, but people should feel free to add more 
advanced topics as they find them, even if it's just a TODO stub to show what 
needs to be added.  

For the actual repo layout and building KDE step-by-step that can be found 
under especially under, and for individual modules in 
their pages under

The page is really only the

There are various proposed workflows on community such as, but it has always been a 
source of contention so it's hard to finalise a policy.
