discussion should focus on mastering the new workflow and what we can do to make sure that
we have the right tutorials & training available to make this migration as gentle as
possible. I am confident that we will master the new tools, but a new workflow requires
new habits and that might take more time to develop.
I agree 100%.
Antoine, you mentioned that you're happy to answer questions in
#mediawiki, and you pointed to some learning resources. That's a good
Who is willing to compose and teach a few interactive tutorials, between

cherry-pick, and rebase)? Antoine, are you volunteering?

I'd figured that out a little while ago. I guess
it seemed a little more
obvious to me. Perhaps we should start a "How do I...?" or FAQ
