For our use case (enhancing the documentation) that's a nonissue:
git or svn, there is nothing to learn, just pull, edit, commit.
3 lines on the project web page will show you what to do.

Of course, if you choose a complicated workflow (maintaining several
branches, test and validation cycles, commit signatures, and so on),
then git would be a good choice, and yes, then you'll have to learn it.
But please don't spend more time with the DVCS than with the improvement
of the manual... ;)
