[OT] Best Git mailing lists(s)?

Sorry to post this here, but I first ended up looking up at subscribing to GMane, which couldn't even be troubled to remember the list I wanted to subscribe to (either I'm seriously misinterpreting things, or they have the most bizarre subscription form I've ever come across), so I figured there had to be something better! I don't want to keep pestering this group with my git questions, so I thought I'd ask for suggestions on git mailing lists.

BUT, since you are reading, I will ask this: Does git have any help functionality implemented? If so, it sure doesn't work for me. for example, I'll type:

git help show

and get the response:

No manual entry for git-show

I'm sure hoping I'm doing something wrong...

Thanks,
Ken

$ git help
