If Martin - which is well above the average programmer -
says that he would need help with Git, I take this as
meaning that most people would get lost with Git.
Heck, I am getting lost even with SVN!

P.S. the thing I do not understand if why we are moving
away from Subversion. Will all the new features entered
in 1.5 and 1.6 Subversion is now not so bad as it used to
be and it has the advantage of being already there and
familiar to most people.
