I work on the education team at GitHub and do a fair number of Git
workshops. One thing that I've always found difficult to explain to
newbies is how the staging area works, and why it's useful. As a
hand-wave to simplify things, I usually have them use
git add -A
git commit -m "..."
to not really have to worry about untracked vs. modified/removed files
aren't included with `git commit -a` or `git add .`. I would like to
add a `-A` flag to the `commit` command, which effectively does a `git
add -A` before committing.
I was trying to submit a patch myself, but couldn't even manage to
find where the various flags are defined :-) Does the feature sound
reasonable? Mind pointing me in the right direction of where this
would be added?
