If you're one of those people who "learn by doing", then you're in for
some pain. The book presents a nice top-down approach, but it assumes
you have the patience to read whole chapters explaining the big
picture. You really need to read chapters 2, 3, and 5 to understand how
to manage a repository and use a client. If you just want to know "how
to do something", there's no easy way to just point to a specific place
in the book. You need the big picture.

Yeah, that would work. You want to create a "project root" for each
project. See chapter 5.
