I found only longish boring tutorials about git and I missed a short, minimalist approach as I tried to illustrate.
I wonder if a set of minimalist tutorials - "Version Control for Perl Developers" - would be a worthy mini-project.
I'd be willing to write the introduction and mini-tutorials for SVN and Fossil.
Looks like you've got the material for a git mini-tutorial.
(I see a CVS tutorial by trs80, so there is precedent for this.)
Perhaps one tutorial with sections for the intro and the VCSs (the section for CVS would just link to the existing tutorial).
