I'm no genius, either, and I think that git is the most horrible
VCS that I ever had to use. The error messages are incomprehensible,
and it fails to do stuff that should be trivial (and indeed is trivial
in subversion). On this project, I spent 40% of the time fighting
git, 40% of the time fighting Perl, and was productive on 20% of the
time. IOW, I find the learning curve for git extremely steep.
