Thanks for your comments, they are useful.

Point taken -- I'll make it clear in the doc that Galène works on any
Linux distribution, on BSD Unix, on Mac OS X, and on Windows.

Right.  I need to make it clear that Go 1.13 or later is required on the
host that is used for compilation, and that nothing (except the kernel and
Galène itself) is required on the host that runs Galène.

The dependencies are downloaded from Google's servers.  You can disable
this functionality, but then the dependencies will be downloaded from
Microsoft Github.  We're stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Okay, that's a different issue: we need a user-friendly way of defining
groups for Galène.  This is one of the most important remaining missing

Right.  Galène works fine with a self-signed certificate, but the browser
vendors display a huge red warning (even though self-signed certificates
are way more secure than plain (unencrypted) HTTP).  I'll make it clear
that while self-signed certificates are fine for testing, for production
usage you need a real certificate.

Thanks again for your comments,
