This all makes sense to me except for step 3 where you say “but saving in another folder”. Doesn’t that prevent Git from merging your changes with the previous version?

I think it’s been a good experiment to give Git a try, but I’m having doubts about the value of Git in this context. As a version control system for code, it’s not really built to handle multiple changes in the same line, so we keep having to control who is editing what via emails. Also, there are a significant number of people in the group who are not comfortable using Git. Finally, trying to get a lot of changes in at the same time using pull requests slows things down and makes more work for editors. Next time around, I would suggest we use only the wiki to handle text changes. Then we can forget about trying to sync two different versioning systems, and we’ll have a tool that was designed for handling editorial workflows.
