how to use git to host my code at Google

I am having a folder named bond which has all my source code I would like to upload to a git repository on internet.
I just created an account at Google code.
Here is a link
by this time I have read a lot of guides available on internet but I am not able to understand what should I do to be able to upload my code to the above link.

I have checked
the guy seems to be quite frustrated with git.
Google gives a link to read a doc
read it completely and this actually did not helped me a bit.
In the comments section of following link
I get a URL
this guy seems reasonably mature to write how to begin.

I created a folder named bond and kept all my C files in it.
Step1 )After that I went to a folder named bond this is what I want to host on internet.
Step 2) git init
Step 3) git add .
After this what do I need to do?

Google only supports svn and hg (as far as I know). Luckily, git is a better svn client than svn itself. Read about how to use git-svn, there are loads of tutorials out there, and then just use an svn repo on google. I'm using it and it works great.

Thanks for the link and the comments on my blog (linuxsagas). I wouldn't consider myself mature -- I am still figuring this stuff out too.

Here is my thought: you probably want to check out your Google Code repository to create your local one.

Maybe something like this:
1) rename your "bond" directory to something like "bond-backup"
2) create a new "bond" directory
2) checkout your Google Code site into your new directory:
git svn clone –username <username>
3) copy your files from your backup directory into this new directory
4) add these files to the repository
git add .
5) commit the changes to your local repository
git commit
6) commit the changes up to the Google Code site
git svn dcommit

Just my thought -- I'd be glad for anyone to correct me.
