Because we don't yet have a body of documentation in the repo yet I 
think people have largely been putting any documentation on the wiki, or 
not documenting at all.

At the urging of Sedat Dilek, I've (finally) created a top level 
Documentation directory, and contributed the first (of hopefully many) 
documentation file (git link follows).


I elected to use wiki text formatting to write the documentation so that 
it can be easily added to the wiki as well without having to reformat it.

Feel free to add your own documentation files, or correct anything in 
existing documentation (if you don't have commit access, patches 
accepted). I've just noticed that Mark Charlebois has already corrected 
typos and made a contribution to the quilt patch documentation file. 
Thank you Mark! (Mental note to self: spell check documentation written 
in vim)

I encourage everyone to read that document who is doing kernel patches. 
It will hopefully make your use of the new system a lot more straight
