Actually, I just found the answers to most of my questions (minus the
multi-project stuff) in the documentation by complete accident. It was
squirreled away in an obscure location called "Daily Use Guide".
"Getting Started" is more appropriate Windows-ish terminology and the
"Getting Started" section was buried inside that section. IMO, "Getting
Started" should come first in any software documentation and should be
more tutorial-ish. Actually, users shouldn't have to read anything at
all to get the system to work :)

I just finished my first checkout and everything looks good so far. I
just have to deal with the multi-project with common projects issue.
That's something I'll save for tomorrow.
