Hm, OK, thanks.  Now I remember having read this section before, but I
did not remember about it when I was writing the e-mail.  Sorry about
that.  I will follow-up with this question on Andreas' e-mail, because
(as stated before) the repository already exists, so we might need to
recreate it from scratch (that's my preference).

Aha, alright, good to know that I was on the right track.  Thanks for
clarifying a few other things for me.
