The discussion is waaaay beyond that, so this is no longer relevant.

Agreed (and now mentioned on the Wiki).  But again, not very relevant
to the issue at hand, which had to do with user confusion more than
with anything else.

And if we think double-checking each commit before pushing is a must,
we should make VC support that seamlessly.  After all, all Richard
used was VC.

I disagree.  We should let people who want to use a CVS-like workflow
do that.  It's possible if done correctly.  The previous instructions
for that were sub-optimal, but I think they are now much more clear,
accurate, and concise to allow using that workflow safely.

I see no reasons for being this harsh just because some contributors
don't yet master Git enough to use it like we think they should.

Time spent helping someone is time well spent, at least as long as
it's my time.
