"add" is the verb, not "index" (which is a noun that refers
to the thing that keeps track of what will be written as a tree to
be committed next).
And it will stay that way.
IIRC, when this was discussed, many non-native speakers had trouble
with the verb "to stage", not just from i18n/l10n point of view.
