[Haifux] [W2L] Call for lecturer + "Linux guru"

I tend to disagree about git being too complex. I currently have three
students (in a military setting), which have never used any form of version
control before, and have been taught basic usage of git - init, add, commit,
log, diff, remote, and pull. I've received no complaints as of yet. As long
as you're not doing rebases or working with multiple branches (which are
much more complicated to do in SVN, and useless in the situation at any
rate), the "data loss" problems mentioned above don't exist. Git gives the
added bonus of being able to work offline, which is indispensable for a
student on a laptop.
Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps, for he is the only animal that
is struck with the difference between what things are and what they ought to
