Subjectgit guidance
So I've watched Linus' Google Tech Talk about git and let him convince
me that I've been stupid to use CVS, that Subversion is even worse,
and the only sensible approach is to use git. Went ahead and tried to
convert my driver development to git.

It didn't work too well. The first result was one of maximal
embarrassment: I produced a patch that didn't even compile when
applied to the official tree. This shouldn't happen with git, right?
Well, it did. So now I'm back to keeping a virgin kernel source tree
alongside my development area in order to produce diffs. That can't
be right?

Obviously I'm still being stupid. (Probably an aftereffect of using
CVS for too long.) But where do I turn for guidance? I read all the
docs and READMEs I could find, but I still don't understand why GIT
doesn't produce the results I need, and what to do differently.

Does somebody have a step by step tutorial for doing the standard
"edit - test - modify - retest - submit - edit - resubmit" sequence
with GIT? Is there a GIT newsgroup or mailinglist? Or should I just
post my silly questions to LKML?
