Thank you for your rapid reply.

However, I have wasted 2 hours in self-doubt and error;
how difficult is it to update an introductory document,
and to put its content into a CI environment  so that
someone notices when it breaks?

My actual objective is to get rabbithub running, but I thought
I would do the "Hello world" exercise as a warm up, never having
used this tool chain before.

thanks for the reply
