Change Quickstart step 1 link to redirect to Section 1.1 Getting Started. Currently, it redirects to 1.1.2 Getting the Source Code. For developers coming from git, step 1.1.1 Version Control Setup would be helpful.

Feedback from PyCon 2015 Sprints suggest this change.

@ezio.melotti I've reviewed the second version of the patch and it links as you requested to 1.1.1. It is ready to be merged.

Thanks ttz.

Thanks for the patch, but I think the current link is correct. Contributors will need to read the whole page anyway :)

If you want to mention in index.rst, I'd suggest something like this:

1. :ref:`Get the source code <checkout>`::
       hg clone

   See :ref:`vcsetup` on installing Mercurial.

@berker.peksag I think that new contributors (esp. those at the sprints) want to get started quickly. Many do not read the whole devguide before starting even though the devguide is really helpful.

I like your suggested approach to keep the original link and add the "See ..."
phrase. Thanks :)

Berker, Thanks for restaging this issue. I have attached a patch which implements your suggested approach. If you have time to review and commit, I would appreciate the help.
