If possible, add some information/basic steps on a few more topics as well?
 For example:
1) How do you undo a commit, or undo part of a commit?
2) How do you apply someone else's patch for testing before committing?  
3) How to backport to other trunks?
4) How do you know if someone has a fix or not?  With subversion, they'd
indicate they're running svn r51234, for example, and then you could tell
them that they need to update to at least r52345.  With git, how does this
work with hashes?

Thanks.  I too develop on Windows primarily.
