(It's reStructured Text, of course.)

I've run through the instructions using a local VirtualBox VM, and got
from 'bare metal' to running Bugzilla in 20 minutes, and that included 8
mins of OS install and some tweaks to the instructions along the way.

Please could all core Bugzilla hackers take 10 minutes to read it
through and add comments, particularly where I've marked it with XXX and
posed a question?

If we can get this as simple as possible, I think it will have a
significant effect on uptake of Bugzilla, and lead to a significant
reduction in installation-related questions :-)
