    You are free to use whatever you like and do the amount of learning
    effort that pleases you, of course. What I dispute is your implicit
    claim of "git is complex, not-so-well documented and has a not-so-good
    UI, hence learning it will be hard." For Eli's definition of "learning",
    the claim may be true. For somebody else's definition of "learning",
    it is not. Not everyone is interested on a thorough study of the tool
    "just in case" when some simple instructions are enough to incorporate
    their edits into Emacs' repository.

There is a connection between the scope of ones knowledge and the scope
of ones contribution.

    For those cases, a web search will quickly provide the solution. One
    advantage of belonging to a huge user base is that somebody, somewhere,
    had your same problem on the past, and helpful experts abound.

Precisely, but the experts do not abound; the Eli Zaretskiis are rare.
