Instructions about obtaining the source code

Git, SVN instructions etc. would IMHO better fit Documentation/Building Guide AOO than this page, because they are not specific to Linux. Here, we could give for granted that the sources are "somewhere", ready to be compiled. Or, we could insert a link to the relevant section of the building guide.
The only good reason (still IMHO) to insert Git commands here would be the case they are very different from the same commands under other platforms (Windows, Mac). But I have no experience on them, unfortunately. Ardovm (talk) 13:07, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

Sure, no problem just delete whatever you find redundant. I have no idea if they are specific to Linux. I don't build on any other platform. I would still leave the install git command because it is not included in Ubuntu 18.04 by default. --Pedlino (talk) 13:30, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

But you are right in fact! If this is a step-by-step guide, we should have all steps, not just stop once we have the build system ready! I'll re-arrange the chapters to allow the next steps. Ardovm (talk) 18:04, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
