D'oh! Didn't think to check there - I searched through the
list for references to the gbs, found the instructions for
getting the template from cvs, and didn't think to look
elsewhere for instructions :-/

I'd suggest adding a "README", but I suspect that most
people find the gbs from the doc you cited, instead of
stumbling into it the way I did.

Thanks,
