Well, I haven't gotten Lore to work (on Windows at least) in a looooooong
time.  The only way I can get trial to work on Windows is by using the
"Twisted Command Prompt", or some hairy PATH manipulation.

For example, if you want to contribute to Twisted, you need to read (at the
very least):


but you also need to read:
and maybe:

to really get a full picture.

A lot of this is incomplete on a given page, and you need to have read the
others to really understand what's going on.
Some of that stuff should be merged into the actual development docs (like
the stuff on commit messages, for example).

Some of it certainly belongs in the wiki, but not all of it, and some of
that could be condensed into one page.
