Hi Jeff and Drew.

Excellent. I now removed the repository from the server, removed it from my 
gitolite.conf, added it to gitolite.conf, re-initialized and it works.
git diff shows what I wanted.

Thank you *very* much for making my dream come true. :)
-And thank you all for all the hard work you're doing. -Git is how all other 
open-source projects should be: Well-written and well-defined (oh - and fast!).
