You contradict yourself.
Of course we need to learn the new tools.
But a quick howto can at least get us up and running.
The few git commands that I posted could be a base from which people can
start building their mythtv again.
The extra stuff they could figure out themselves.

E.g.: I still need to find out how to get the git commit number we're at
to adjust the name of the mythtv rpms.

Put this in a context where a not-SMART announcement is made: it is not
said when they will move, when they will be done moving, what svn is the
last svn commit or anything else. The text on the website is still not
adjusted to the supposed current situation. (are we done moving? what
was the last svn commit?)
We are just thrown into the git manuals and everybody expects stuff to
work well.
