Yes, it's long, but it should be very easy to read, and if you do,
you'll have everything you need to know for a while.

(And it's still shorter from many git books, and it's also shorter
from the subversion book.)

googling for it...)

The problem is that git is not a drop-in replacement for svn, which
means that if you'll get straight to these things, you're still likely
to do mistakes like using `git commit -a'.
