Sorry - I got carried away. AFAIK, git is available on the Mac under
OSX, but I have no idea where to get it: somebody on OSX will have to
point you to it. After you get git installed, read this section of the
Org website:


and follow the pointer to the "Keeping current" section of the FAQ.

git does tend to blow your mind the first few times you use it (it
shares that characteristic with org-mode, except that the latter keeps
coming up with new ways to blow your mind - git is pretty static by
comparison): don't be discouraged.

OTOH, you don't really need to understand much about git to keep current
with org development: a couple of commands is enough. You'll need to
know a bit more in order e.g. to experiment with Nicolas Goaziou's list
reimplementation since that is not in the upstream master (yet).

OTOOH, if you'd like to dig deeper, there are various git tutorials on
the web: try the git website (http://git.scm.org) and the Wikipedia page
on git. In addition, Scott Chacon's book "ProGit" is available in both
online and dead-tree versions - I've only read a couple of chapters but
it looks pretty good. The online version is at http://progit.org/book/

But then you'd miss all the fun and excitement of this list... And you'd
always be wondering what the "adults" are talking about. Nah, you don't
want to do that :-)
