I've been particularly busy of late, so I haven't had any real time to look
into git or gerrit yet, and I'm probably not going to have any time to do so
for a few more weeks at least.  There are probably around 200 posts to
wireshark-dev about git and gerrit, many with tidbits of helpful
information, but nothing really consolidated.

Being a complete git+gerrit newb, I also would really appreciate a wiki page
with consolidated information for all of the common work flows that a normal
developer as well as a core developer might use.  I assume
http://wiki.wireshark.org/Development/Workflow would be the place for it,
and when I finally get going, that's where I hope to start.

Pro Git has been suggested on more than 1 occasion, so I do intend to read
that too at some point, but I think it would really help to have the wiki
page contain everything one would need to not only get started, but also to
learn from you git experts the tricks of the trade, pitfalls, best
practices, etc.

Coming from an RCS -> CVS -> SVN migration, Git is really foreign to me and
not nearly as easy to pick up and start using right away as the others were
to me.
