Yep, I agree. I've used git for 5 months. I just know for sure what 3 commands do: git commit -a and git push and git add.

Ask me what git merge does, or how to branch, or even how to delete a file in a repository (w/o deleting it from your local), or how to revert back to another version, or how to even check out, and I'll say I dunno. I read the documentation, but am still confused. I sometimes feel like I'm dumb because I feel everyone loves git and everyone gets it. Glad to hear that I'm not alone.
