Having only this exposure to the bachelor thesis, I've just been reading
for my own learning.

I'll only share that I would invite Vlada to perhaps write a blog post with
some summary type information targetting newcomers with an understanding of
git. Such a post might be a way to understand Pulp by allowing them to
relate existing understanding to pulp a little quicker.
