If there was a compact enough summary to go in the development guide,
that would be great, though it's not crucial.  The problem is git allows
a zillion different ways of doing it whereas in CVS you were restricted
to committing what you've changed, and that was it.

I'm still hoping for a simple, straightforward list of the basic
commands you'd need to use *not* involving the manifold ramifications of
branches here, there and everywhere.  Presumably this isn't more than
half a dozen commands or so.
