i agree with David - i find it a bit unfair to say that Git documentation is useless.
as i said there is excellent documentation out there written by people
in their free time.
of course i understand that not everybody can invest time in Git details
but i also think that you don't need many commands to survive
with everyday Git situations - i bet you can live a fulfilled Git life
with 10 commands.
it is possible that there may not be many ultracompact Git tutorials.
but only we can change that: the community.

Someone needs to assume that some people here don't want to work
full-time with git, and learn all its tiny details just to get
anything done. I'm aware of the various tutorials and cheat-sheets out
there, but there's just nothing that sketches every path between two
points. And gods help you if you want to revert some kind of complex
multi-branch merge. I always just git clone the revision I need into a
scratch folder, then copy all the source over. Sheesh...

what are you doing to improve the situation?

what documentation, specifically? git-scm.com has good links and
progit is quite comprehensive. are there points that can be improved?
helpful criticism helps to improve the situation instead of
complaining into the abyss.

please help the community help you.
