# Generator for code.literati.org
-To use this, first pick a directory where you want to generate the
-HTML. Then create a bare repo to push the code into under that
-directory using `make-new-repo <repo name>`. This will create a bare
-repo named `<repo name>.git` and set up a post-update hook to make
-that repo clonable over a "dumb transport" like http as well as
-generate the index. It will also copy logo.png and style.css from the
-same directory as make-new-repo into the destination directory for the
-generated HTML, so replace those with your own if you want.
+The purpose of this project is to allow serving Git repositories from
+a static web server. To use it, clone this repo, then edit the file
+"url.m4" to point at where you will be hosting the files. Leave REPO
+as it is; that will be replaced with the name of each repository.
+Next, for each repository you want to serve code for, change to the
+local copy of the directory that you want the repositories to be
+hosted under and run `<clone dir>/make-new-repository <repo name>`.

+Before pushing to the bare repo, edit the file "owner" in the root of
+the repo to contain the name and email of the repo maintainer (I'd
+recommend using a mailing list for group projects and accepting
+patches that way). Edit "description" to be a short description of the
