It is indeed not on techbase as far as I can see too. 

Do you have specific questions? 

Are you looking for tutorials on how to use git generally (not KDE 
specific), or are you looking for policies (KDE specific)? Does running gitk 
in the repos answer any policies questions or raise new ones? eg in CMake 
git, every commit is not on master but a different branch. 

If you look at gitk in the kdelibs repo for example, you see that that is 
not how people are committing. People commit directly to KDE/4.8 or directly 
to frameworks. Periodically, someone (most recently me) merges the KDE/4.8 
branch into the frameworks branch.
