I think this is due to the fact that it's quite simple
git clone kde:repo
do coding
git commit
git push

Obviously i think it is simple but you think it's not, i can't write a guide 
for dummies because i think it's simple and you can't write it because you 
don't know how to write it, it'd need to people to collaborate on it.

If you can write somewhere your questions I'm sure we can find people to write 
the answers :)
