Whether you’re just rolling out a new project, or you’re maintaining ten years and three major versions of legacy code, good documentation is vital for your users. They won't bother downloading your software if they can’t work out what it does, and if all you have is the bare-bones documentation to help them to get up and running, you’ll end up spending more time than you want to on support.
Git makes so much more sense when you understand how it really works. It only has two tricks, and they're really simple, but explanations go on about Directed Acyclic Graphs and Octopus Merges and a bunch of CS jargon nobody understands. Feh. You can illustrate and understand git using just children's toys!
