Working on my revised patch...

3. If your command is implemented in an interpreted language with a
p-code intermediate form, make sure .gitignore in the main directory
includes a pattern entry that ignores such files. Python .pyc and
.pyo files will already be covered.
> INSTALL: note language requirements if odd (see python section)
4. If your command has dependency on a particular version, document
it in the INSTALL file.
> command-list.txt: categorization of commands for git(1) etc.
Are the values in the right-hand column documented somewhere? What
uses them, and for what purposes.
> RelNotes: Junio generally does this.
6. When your patch is merged, remind the maintainer to add something
about it in the RelNotes file.

I think this is a good suggestion and will implement it.
If someone can explain the values used in command-list.txt, or (better) point
me to documentation of them, that will enable me to finish the revised patch.
