There was a lot more than was needed, so I updated it. Basically, the
initial clone creates the ParaView directory, initializes and then updates
the submodule. So only one command is required for initial checkout. To
update, you must first pull, and then update the submodules (the pull is
what may push the submodule forward).

I hope that makes things clearer. I agree that we need to provide very
brief, minimal instructions for people that just want to get up and running
as quickly as possible.
