Just wanted to point to a Dr. Dobb's article from Monday:

The author does not use the use the word "index" at all. Instead he
writes in following way:

Staging Changes

One of Git's best features is that it offers a staging process. You
can stage the modified files that you want to commit. Other version
control systems await your one command before your files are changed
in the repository — generally the remote repository for the entire
team. When you commit files in Git, files are held in a staging area.
You will later commit all the files from the staging area to the
larger repository.

So, let's say you wanted to make a change involving files A and B. You
changed file A. You then remembered something unrelated to do with
file Z and you modified that. Then you went back to your initial
change, modifying file B. Git allows you to add files A and B to
staging, while leaving file Z "unstaged." Then you can push only the
staged files to your repository. But you don't! You realize you need
to make a change to file C as well. You "add" it. Now files A,B, and C
are staged, and Z is still unstaged. You commit the staged changes


Sorry for not responding to your comments Drew, no time at the moment.
