Thanks, Bruno.
BTW, for those new to git, be careful not to spend time reading dated
git documentation.  It is still evolving pretty quickly.  Even a couple
months old can be misleadingly old.  I find that using the development
git/Documentation directory is a good approach.  I.e., clone the official
git.git repository (see above), then browse its Documentation directory.

Also, bear in mind that while cogito is more friendly/intuitive than
straight git, much of cogito's functionality has already been migrated
"into" git.  Technically, cogito is on the way out: folks are now
admitting that cogito is no longer being maintained... at least not by
the author.  People seem to agree that most of its functionality is
already available in the latest git, and the few bits remaining will
make it in, eventually.
