Nicely done. Now this fits together. Thanks.

What is exactly the process of bootstrapping? Do you scp the bootstrap
script to the host and execute it there, or do you start over with
cloning the repo, checking out the bootstrap branch and then executing

And this lives in the master branch of the vcsh-root repo which is
cloned by bootstrap.sh?

Thank you very much. Together with the other examples in this thread
and RichiH's vcsh_mr_template mentioned in the man page this should
