Hi Nancy, Hi list,

the biggest problem with using git is understanding its principles,
which are quite different from cvs or svn or any other centralized
SCM. The git parable
explains step by step what git does and why.

The msysgit git-shell is actually pretty good. It has all the features
the bash-shell has in Linux/MacOS. E.g. command completion: if you
want to switch branches you would type 'git checkout otherbranch', but
if you just type 'git checkout othe<TAB>' it expands 'othe' to
'otherbranch' (if non ambiguous).
