It is a bit more complicated but I believe (and experienced myself) that
a lot of that learning curve is unnecessarily steep due to the way many
of the tutorials out there are written. For some reason most of them
start out describing the guts and inner workings of git (blobs, trees,
packs, etc.) rather than teaching workflows.

The one great exception I've found to this is Scott Chacon's fabulous
_Pro_Git_ ( It teaches you how to use git to
manage sources. Reading that is what make it "click" for me.
