+Obviously, if you are reading these notes, you did manage to clone

1. Change to the source tree directory
$ cd wydawca

+2. Run `bootstrap':
- ./bootstrap --gnulib-srcdir=/usr/src/gnulib
+ ./bootstrap
Once done, proceed as described in the file README (section
`Installation').
+Normally you will have to run bootstrap only once. However, if you
+intend to hack on Wydawca, you might need to run it again later. In
+this case, you will probably want to save some time and bandwidth by
+avoiding downloading the same files again. If so, create in the Wydawca
+root directory the file named `.bootstrap' with the following
+contents:
+
+ --gnulib-srcdir=$HOME/gnulib
+
+Replace `$HOME/gnulib' with the actual directory where the Gnulib
+sources reside.
+
+For more information about `bootstrap', run `bootstrap --help'.
