The three off-site docs that you link to, are already showing the
usual signs of 'chopping'n'changing version'-itis: in your doc, the
'Adding and removing users' and 'Adding and removing repositories'
link to gitolite v3 docs ('http://gitolite.com/gitolite/users.html' &
'http://gitolite.com/gitolite/repos.html' resp), whereas the link 'modify the
gitolite.conf filename as explained in [...] [url]this[/url] document' gives
a v2 page ('http://gitolite.com/gitolite/g2/confother_.html'), that says at
its top, "WARNING: This is not the latest gitolite; please see the README" .

That's the kind of thing that happens when working with not a fixed
tarball/git-tag target, and instead using a moving target; ref preceding
email re tarball &c.

Overall, ideally if possible give example code for how the user would
walkthrough setup of a simple config; and refer the user to the gitolite
tarball infos &/or off-site docs for fuller details, in the usual way.

And, of course, I'd really recommend nailing down a fixed gitolite version
and using that.
