That's the spirit ! And yes, it's exactly right. Thanks a lot !

One minor nit: the Anelok case ends in a half-circle on the side
of the wheel, with wheel and half-circle having the same center.

Yup, that's the whole trick :)

Hmm, there doesn't seem to be a direct way to do it. According to
"be able to clone the wiki repository" should be implemented
"soon", but then it says the same about "be able to push to the
wiki repository (project admins only?)" and this works already,
at least for me as project owner.

You could try to
git clone git at
and then push. Since the Wiki is publicly writeable, maybe that
includes pushing ...

If all else fails, you could just make a "normal" clone, host it
wherever you want, and send a pull request "out of band".

Good question. CC-BY-SA may work. I treat it sort of as catchall
for anything that isn't clearly software. There's the GNU FDL
specifically for documents, but at a very quick glance it looks
a little over-engineered.
