Agreed that navigation is currently hard.  I would love to see a new
Gitorious splash page that just lists *all* the projects like GitWeb does,
but I know that could be hard to do and we have more pressing infrastructure

The best way to do this is:

git clone git://git.sugarlabs.org/browse/maineline.git browse

The second argument controls the name of the directory it's synced to.

python setup.py dev

This will create the aforementioned symlink.  Then restart X
