Ie I can do the equivalent of 'pull' or 'push' but I fail at everything else with an incomprehensible error message.  Maybe I just need practice (or more diligence), but I really don't understand git's underlying model, despite trying, and reading several tutorials.  If anyone has a favourite "how to understand git" doc, do point me at it.

I'm tempted to point out that Linux named it "git" for a reason.  :)

Mercurial might be a better choice, especially for people familiar with darcs.
