Use the "<tt>fossil ui</tt>" command from within the ~/sqlite checkout to
bring up a local copy of the website.

<p>
Use "trunk" for <i>VERSION</i> to get the latest trunk version of SQLite.
Or use a prefix of a cryptographic hash name, or the name of some branch
or tag.  See
[https://fossil-scm.org/fossil/doc/trunk/www/checkin_names.wiki] for more
suggestions on what names can be used for <i>VERSION</i>.

Use the "<tt>fossil ui</tt>" command from within the ~/sqlite checkout to

Do not be afraid to explore.  Without a log-in you won't be able to
push back any changes you make, so you cannot damage the project.  If
you get your clone hopelessly messed up, simply delete the 
"sqlite.fossil" repository file and start over.
