Hey, thanks for the good review.  It's not perfect, but got a decent

Thanks for the suggestion, which makes sense.  I'm still toying with  
the idea of doing a screencast.  If it worked, it'd be the first of a  
few, so I'd like to make the first one short and simple (10-15 min?).   
Here's a list of things I would put in it:

* darcs add
** -r
* darcs remove
* darcs whatsnew
** --summary
* darcs record
** -a
** -m
* darcs changes
** --last
* darcs push
* darcs pull
* darcs send
** configuring darcs send to email from the command line*
* darcs apply
* darcs get

Any you would add or remove from this list?  (Maybe it's too long?)

I would not plan to cover any reversal operations (unrecord, amend- 
record, obliterate etc), any conflict resolution or any clever patch  
dependency stuff.  That would probably all be better saved for a later  
screencast, if the idea works.



* I need to learn how to do this first :)
