It is helps, this site:
http://www-cs-students.stanford.edu/~blynn/gitmagic/ might
have a way for you to come up to speed on git.

I use git for all things that I need to keep track of - documents,
code, websites
and especially my /etc folders (via etckeeper).

Do check out the link above. I am sure you'll find it useful.
