This proves that darcs isn't harder to learn than CVS. However, the
'get' and 'pull' thiings were only given to indicate that you can
'explain' CVS/SVN using Darcs commands.
The centralized repository thing is pretty hard to understand at
first. I know i had quite some trouble with CVS in the beginning. Add
branches to that, and you're in a real pain.
The fact that there is no difference between a working copy and a
repository makes it a lot easier: you start with 'darcs record' which
does what it does: it records your changes. Basically, this is all
you need to do versioning on your own little project. If you want
your changes to be copied to another place, you can learn 'darcs
push' and 'darcs pull'.
