+# Trinity Desktop Environment GIT Repositories
+TDE is a comprehensive desktop environment that includes both
+core packages and applications designed for it.
+The complete source code is split into many individual GIT repositories,
+connected together into a tree structure of modules and submodules. The
+main *TDE* repository provides the entry point to the root of such tree,
+simplifying navigation and cloning operation of the complete TDE code.
+TDE packaging repository contains files designed to create source and
+binary packages for distributions such as Debian, Fedora, and so on.
+## Check out the complete TDE source code
+To check out the complete source tree from GIT,
+you can use the following procedure:
+git clone
+git clone
+cd tde
+git submodule init -- scripts
+git submodule update -- scripts
+./scripts/switch_all_submodules_to_head_and_clean anonymous
