I've already 'mastered' mercurial, so I don't think git would give me
too many problems. I was under the impression that it required knowing
your way around the codebase, but I'm glad that's not the case. The
time-issues still remain, although I might be able to solve those too
before the end of this month.

The broken links I encountered were external links, so I don't think
it can be fixed permanently. All links under 'AMD' on this page[1] are
broken for example. It can be fixed by replacing 'Processor' with
'Embedded', but I don't think there is a permanent solution for this
case. I don't remember the other broken links I encountered, but I
will fix them as soon as I do.

Will do, thanks!
