Rather than replying to one of your several other posts, I'll just ask here - what do you think is so "complex and arcane" about git that makes it so difficult to learn?

Speaking as someone who had very little experience with SCMs before git, I have never found myself particularly stuck or frustrated, and have really found it quite easy to learn. There are plenty of great resources online and I've found the man pages detailed enough for quick-reference type stuff. I taught my co-worker how to use git in about 15 minutes, and in another 10 we both understood branches and conflict resolution.
