    - working with an existing project (in command line)
    - dealing with problems (merge/diff/local copy compromised/downgrade to a previous version)
    - references and tools for more complex operations

    Audience and requirements:

    The target audience is advanced scripting/programming users constantly updating their code or working in a team on the same code
