Seth Robertson has done just that and while yes, it's not the most exciting or harrowing CYOA, that's probably a good thing.

Navigating your way through the "adventure" is simple — just keep clicking options until you end up at the solution you need. Your current path is updated as you progress, so you can go back to any previous step if you need to.

Is it the ideal way to troubleshoot Git? Maybe not, but it's a lot better than staring gormlessly at your screen trying to figure out exactly what to search for when your Google-fu fails you.
