tails-installer: insufficient doc to release
While trying to release tails-installer for 4.5~rc1, I’ve noticed a number of issues:
- no clear indication how to clone it
masterwhich is supposed to be the basis for all the things… that’s lagging way behind
- no access for me to push the upstream tag
- a failing
git fetch debianbecause of the first point (no
so I might be skipping the update of
tails-installer for the RC.
Tentatively assigning to @anonym as my consultant for this release.

Some more data to clarify:
- using the
https://salsa.debian.org/pkg-privacy-team/tails-installerURL as my
origin, since I haven’t found anything else that would be more obvious.
masterthere can be “git-described” as: tails-installer_5.0.7-7-g91610c0f (instead of something like 5.0.16…).

I don’t really find that obvious, given even when one knows about it, checking leads to:
kibi@armor:~/work/clients/tails/release/release-checkout$ git grep git.tails.boum.org|grep liveusb wiki/src/news/report_2013_09.mdwn: - [Rebranded](http://git.tails.boum.org/liveusb-creator/log/?h=feature/sdio) wiki/src/news/report_2013_09.mdwn: dialog](http://git.tails.boum.org/liveusb-creator/log/?h=feature/confirmation_dialog) wiki/src/news/report_2013_09.mdwn: size](http://git.tails.boum.org/liveusb-creator/log/?h=feature/list_device_name)
and even knowing that, I wouldn’t have understood that from
wiki/src/contribute/release_process/tails-installer.mdwn’s introductory paragraph.
