Over the years i’ve amassed a decent amount of git knowledge but still find myself googling obscure details rather than hitting the man pages. The search results inevitably lead to stackoverflow where I need to figure out which answer is relevant to the my problem (pro tip: it’s rarely the accepted answer) or some blog where the solution is described in great detail though without an actual command line example.

I can make do, but I’ve found people new to git struggling over and over and over again.

So I started to organize all the answers to the questions I received and put them together on a website :

The goal is to have concise, linkable answers to common problems and very little more. It’s hosted on github at jsoverson/gitfaq, appropriately, so changes can be made in the form of pull requests.

Hope it helps!
