|Welcome to the club. I've been doing systems admin for 25 years, and 
mostly 'devops' admin for going on ten years now, and have only used git 
in the most basic of ways - the occasional configuration file version 
control for example. I've only been contributing to the ntpsec project 
in my small way for a very short while, and am still learning the finer 
points of merging, branching, etc.

Git is complex, and powerful. A background in coding is certainly 
helpful, I'm sure it's easier for devs to learn than non-coders. There 
are however massive volumes of help on the net, tutorials aplenty, and 
the folks here have been kind enough not to shoo me away when I have my 
little git glitches.
