Just putting it out there: if anyone ever wants help - debugging, problem-solving, tutoring, whatever - with the Linux CLI (bash/ksh93, GNU coreutils..., vi, emacs, sed, awk) and/or git, I'll help.

I won't make you feel bad for anything you don't already know. I promise. (Nobody ever should.)

I'll reiterate every once in a while. Boosts appreciated!

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

Great idea! Although apprentices must really commit to it.
If they don't... Well, can't really blame them. It has to be a free choice, can't really force push it on them. There's a remote chance they already know some git and will fast-forward to the objects they don't know.

@signaleleven all too true! Merging new knowledge into their existing skill set always takes work. New learners often cherry-pick the specific info they need, but sooner or later they'll be better served by logging a few hours to get a firm and complete handle on some fundamentals, then grow out from there - sweeping out the cobwebs of surprises one dark corner at a time.

...uh, rebase

@gnomon

I think I need your mentorship, some concepts you joked about now I don't even know them :)

LOL... Uh... Rebase 😂😂
