Newbies in my context are new IT companies or who thinks about organizing a teamwork on their project first time.

Your link for people, who don't even know about git.

What a sad state of affairs. More fancy looking doc should be praised.

githubflow.github.io/ here is a more serious looking doc. Same thing though but maybe that will convince you or whoever read that far in the comments.

Now that's a different story and a good source. And at the very beginning of it:

I travel all over the place teaching Git to people and nearly every class and workshop I've done recently has asked me what I think about git-flow. I always answer that I think that it's great - it has taken a system (Git) that has a million possible workflows and documented a well tested, flexible workflow that works for lots of developers in a fairly straightforward manner. It has become something of a standard so that developers can move between projects or companies and be familiar with this standardized workflow.

And:

So, why don't we use git-flow at GitHub? Well, the main issue is that we deploy all the time.

Before newbies will have to resolve issues with git-flow I expect, they will have enough experience.

It is all about to see a whole process before you can do something with it.

So, for beginners case, you have not convinced me, sorry.
