It would have to be before step 1 in your current ordering, since
which workspace you check out and how to build it depends on which
consolidation the code is in, though I would probably reorder to:

0. Read the information ...

1. Find or file a bug ...

2. Determine which consolidation

3. Create a workspace from the sources for that consolidation,
   and become familiar with building that consolidation

Looks like it.   I started documenting them as well in the GenUnix wiki,
but never finished:
