Please note that Alan mentioned several times that he is not interested
on the "what's going on" part of Git (which IMO is a reasonable stance,
but I do not understand why he insists on ignoring the advice about not
using the man pages for learning how to use Git and read instead some of
the multiple tutorials and introductions available on the 'net.)

IIRC there are several technical articles about the innards of Git.
