There are lots of tutorials on how to initialise a repo but then what? The basics work quite well and use multiple processors to sync dependencies but I’ve yet to get to grips with doing a basic commit! It feels like you should be able to do an atomic commit across multiple repos but the curses interface goes all weird and I gave up for now.

It’s also really annoying searching for information on something called “repo”!
