I understand that. But those instructions could simply be in the form of:

> Make sure your repo is update to date

Telling somehow how to make their repo up-to-date when there are different styles of repo management (e.g. skara and non-skara) is presuming what style is being used. You can add the fetch as an example, but as I said (and please remember I am a member of your target audience here) simply stating you must do this can be confusing when there is no need to do it at all.
