I'm not what "that" refers to. I suppose it should behave as described in the manual.

tree config spesific?
Maybe, did you set up some aliases? You can use git config -l to see the settings used.

Git is different from SVN. Committing is a two-stage process first you stage items you plan to commit with git add and then you actually commit them with git commit.

It's a different program; it works differently.

I'm surprised no-one has said this yet (or maybe they did, and I didn't notice it): when you are ready to "git commit", you don't have to add each individual file, one-by-one - just go into the top directory in your source tree, and run:
$ git add .
Then you can issue your:
$ git commit [[-a] -m 'commit message']
followed by your
$ git push remote branch_name

"git add ." probably won't work for you if you have files that you don't want git to track.

git ignore solves that. add files to be ignored to .gitignore and git will ignore them all together.
