I have collected some things in chapter 2.115 of my book:

An important first step would be to re-write git-howto.html and explain 
the git commands more detailed, the whole workflow step by step with 
many examples. Only the handfull of commands that we really need. Also 
the new introduced terms should be explained (cloning, push back, remote 
repository, checkout, tracked branch, rebasing, local branches, commit, 
master tree, merge commits, patchset).
