I noticed the following suprising behavior:
% git --version
git version 2.10.0
% git add bar
% git status -s
% git commit -p foo
[stage a hunk]
# Explicit paths specified without -i or -o; assuming --only paths...
# On branch master
# Changes to be committed:
# new file: bar
# modified: foo
So why does it want to commit bar too, when I explicitly wanted to
commit foo only?
This is not how "git commit files..." works, and the man page says
3.by listing files as arguments to the commit command, in which
case the commit will ignore changes staged in the index, and
instead record the current content of the listed files (which must
already be known to Git);
I'd expect "git commit -p files..." to work like
"git add -p files... && git commit files...".
