The groups "git-advocates" and "git-inexperienced" are not exclusive. I don't have experience with git/github but based on its popularity with similar projects and the numpy/ipython documentation I've read it seems like an excellent solution. Since we'd likely adopt something not super different from  the numpy/ipython work flows their documentation is a great place to get started learning about git/github.
