rule is that if there are questions, the documentation isn't clear enough.

I didn't think about tweaking the page in Git.  <facepalm/>

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
