Subject Re: Still confused by git

I'm sorry if I caused you to be fed up. I don't think it's that no-one cares or wants to learn.
It's just that most of us have never used git before, and we have no clue what we're doing.
It's a bit unnerving learning on such a big code base. I'm sure learning the basics of of
git on a small project would be a lot easier…

understand and have a good workflow using Git and reading noone cars or wants to learn, I
don't want to fight anymore and not even work on the SDK tree.
