Hello,

.odt files (I assume you are talking about OpenOffice documents) are
binary, and as such, Git doesn't handle them very well. If you want to
manage such documents in Git, you must use a textual format, such as
DocBook XML or Markdown.

Now that we are here, to answer your other questions, yes, I do manage my
tech papers, novels, API documentations and pretty much every text is Git.
But once again, these are textual files (most of them are DocBook XMLs).
Even the Pro Git book's sources are versioned in Git :-)

Best,
Gergely
