I suspect that most end-users would install not from the source but
install Git from distro as binary packages.  I do not know what the
page of that website you refer to talks about offhand, but if it is
about installing from the source (so that they can help us improve
the software and its documentation), it may be a better idea to let
the users build the documentation pages from the source, not from
the above URL, which serves pre-formatted documentation we cannot
take a patch for.
