Default Pro Git by Scott Chacon

For development of my OpenBSD snapshot tracking utilities I used RCS. See rcs(1)

More than two years ago I decided to play with git, one of the newer kids on the 'revision control' block.

Having forgotten most of it, I happened to find a reference to a free online book about git: http://git-scm.com/book this morning. A dead tree version of the book is published by http://www.apress.com/

Having read only a few chapters, this post is not a review, but I found this book a nice addition to the /usr/local/share/doc/git/user-manual.html that is part of my git install on OpenBSD.

If you are interested in git and want to learn more, this free online book surely is worth reading.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
