But then I can sympathize that it might be a difficult thing to explain without illustration.
i will add more sections to the site - probably including a workflow section that goes over rebase vs merge workflows.
Another invaluable resource, at least for me, for learning git has been Pro Git. Absolutey wonderful way to learn git even with no background in version control.
non-techies also have a need for version control. They just don't have access to it.
If I had said, "I want rsync for non-technical users" a couple years back, I'm saying I wish there was something like Dropbox. You might have said "rsync isn't for non-technical users", which is besides the point.
Edit: Just to be clear, as a technical user, I love git.
