Unfortunately, that's not quite true...

Sure, you can learn the most important git commands in a couple of
minutes. But that will result in a lot of frustration (I have seen it
happen to some Xorg developers): Most cvs commands don't map to git 1:1.
To understand what the git commands do, and how to use them properly,
you really need to take the trouble to learn the basic concepts of git.
Luckily, it's only a few simple principles; but still, using git
properly without at least a few hours of learnig is unrealistic.

Nevertheless, it's definitely worth it :-)
