Notes on distributed vcs and transitioning from standard vcs

This repository consists of a set of text documents describing EGit, the Eclipse git plugin. Egit has decent coverage of the subset of Git operations used most often, but in a number of cases the mapping from Git to egit is not obvious. Egit has also has some quirks and a few significant holes that are important to know about. It also includes a set Eclipse external launchers that can be handy for Git operations that are not yet supported in Egit. Finally, it includes a brief description of Git itself, which I hope will make the Git -> SVN transition less painful that it might otherwise be. The SVN community is convinced that Git is far more complex and difficult than it actually is. I believe this is because the most widely used Git tutorials are more complicated than they have to be, and not well organized from the transition perspective. The repository name is a vestige: originally it included detailed notes re: DVCS in general, not just Git.
