Well, I would rather go through a change in workflows once instead of
making a decision now that we know we are going to want to revisit later
down the line.

I would be willing to take a lead on this. I can write up thorough examples
of the git commands that a committer would use in order to go through the
entire workflow outlined by the Git Branching Model.

There's even free Git clients for Windows and Mac from GitHub that I can
use to make videos and instructions off of and everyone can at least start
with a common GUI that they don't have to pay for as a result of switching
to Git, for those that have not used it yet.
