Good idea.  Also, one of the key distinctions we also need to make clear is how branches differ on svn and git (and why it is easy to branch with git).

However, I don't want to necessarily repeat documentation that is better described elsewhere, so maybe a brief explanation of the above with links to Pro Git (http://progit.org/book/) or other resources?  Can't recommend that book enough...
