Subject Re: Getting Started

Well, my main pain point, as I had before years ago, is that the
documentation is way too complex, there is just too much to read, to
many steps too follow, and the steps are all over the place.

I would be happy to help with the documentation, if I actually
understood what was necessary in getting started.

The other aspect of the documentation is that there is too much of it
because not enough of the setup is automated. If more of the setup was
automated, then there would be less to document. For example, the
removing old versions narrative should be unnecessary.

Cheers, Eric

Happy to help out here and take that feedback into the documentation.
