What's to document? If you look at the repository via web browser, get
a read-only view of the current latest version of everything and
scripted web pages (ASP, PHP, etc.) won't actually execute. Not a
whole lot more to it than that. What "buggy software to worry about"?

My management considers this a welcome feature, not an obstacle.
