as long as we don't become too obsessive and start expecting git mastery from 
everyone who comes along. we need to keep the bar for participation low enough 
to be reached in practice (note: *not* "reachable in theory").

i'm not advocating a messy history or screwy git repositories ... but wish to 
keep focused on being a realistic participation target. that is at least 
partially a matter of perception as well; if it sounds too difficult, people 
will assume it is dificult.

and pragmatically .. if people spend 1 hour coding and then even 30 minutes 
fiddling with commit granularity and atomicity ... we will have fewer people 
contributing. not only because of the time spent on git fu, but because they 
come to contribute code not play with git.

at the same time, your offer of guidance and help is really appreciated. :)

cheers ...
