 You may wish to take this opportunity to setup your projects and configure your
 website address (in the Sites section of the admin console, found at `/admin`).
+## Django administrative console
+In order to access the administrative console at `/admin`, you need at least
+one user account to be registered and configured as a "staff" account to access
+the Django administrative console.  This can be achieved by altering the
+`auth_user` table and setting your favorite user entry to have `is_staff` set
+to `1`. Once done, such user can add projects which are required for email
+delivery to operate correctly.
+Once the administrative console is accessible, you would want to configure your
+different sites and their corresponding domain names, which is required for the
+different emails sent by patchwork (registration, password recovery) as well as
+sample `pwclientrc` files provided by your project's page.
