please go to the git documentation section on techbase, pointed to from the

with the questions in hand, we can push people who know the answers to write 
them down.

without questions in hand, the people who know will take it for granted that 
everyone else knows them as well.

so help us help you by contributing to those techbase pages, even if it's just

if we say this must be done BEFORE the switch, we will never switch. because 
the people who need the information are sitting there not doing anything, and 
the people who have the information are getting impatient and moving over 

there are lots of technical issues to be worked out for the switch, and having 
a blocker on documentation is just a great excuse to not work on those 
technical issues.

so let's not view this as a blocker to the switch, but something we do in 
parallel to it and because we all need it.
