I agree that having an onboarding document would be really good to have.
 I sent out a small onboarding guideline for my Taler GSoC students with
links for more advanced topics (generating ssh keys and signing commits
with GPG), and I think it helped a lot.  We should have something like
this for GNUnet as well.

But I'd rather have this document guide people to the "right" way of
doing things than lower entry barriers by relying on or accommodating
for proprietary platforms.
