I.e. I made the page empty (with just a big warning and a link to the centrla 
git page), changed all links to it to point to the central git page now. I 
did not really want to delete it, because this would have completely deleted 
the page including history.
Do we really want this ?

Not done yet. The page Tutorials/Git/Recipes seems to be a bit more verbose 
than the paragraph on the other page.

So, whoever has a plan of git, please help and write some documentation on
