For users, to get the latest QEMU bits, you would do:

$ git clone git://git.savannah.nongnu.org/qemu.git

For maintainers, Savannah has a getting started page that describes how to
push commits at http://savannah.gnu.org/maintenance/UsingGit

And what for people between users and maintainers, for instance those
who propose patches?  Will there be some recommendations on how
to post patches so that it works well? And don't forget that for some
people just telling "a set of patches is good as long as it can be
bisected" is too short :-)

Yup, we'll have a SubmittingPatches that provides the recommended work flow. A really nice property of git is that if you use the various git tools to send patches (git-format-patch/git-send-email) then a maintainer can grab those automatically via git-am. It significantly reduces the likelihood of loosing information in the process.

Unfortunately tools like git-send-email make me loose information instead, by not saving the sent patches in my mail client's or IMAP server's Sent Mail folder...
