git is getting me on my nerves. I can't commit.
I've made a check out as a dev, i have updated the git tree, I have
modified the tutorial file index.html. Then
git commit -m "toto" index.html
nothing to commit
wtf ? I've modified some files and they are "marked" as modified (they are
in the # comments), but index.html is not there...
does someone understand what this ******* git don't want to commit my
also, cvs was working, xcb is not a big project (in terms of files). I
don't understand why you decided to change to git.
