Ok, added. You can update your tutorial to make the initial setup of a
kernel archive slightly less scary, ie it's now

git clone rsync:// linux-2.6
cd linux-2.6
git checkout

which looks almost user-friendly.

(Of course, since the rsync protocol doesn't know anything about git
consistency, if the mirroring is half-way, you'll end up with something
less than wonderful, and confusing. Details, details)
