Maybe my impression that doing "add" together with "commit" would be easy wasn't correct after all. I won't object if you try to tackle commit first (but I have the slight suspicion that similar questions will arise concerning the "add"ish functionality in commit too. So maybe after resolving those things might look clearer ;-) -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
