Topic: using "git commit -a"
After running that very common git command it takes me into a vi session to enter a message. I know almost nothing about vi and was pretty lost for awhile but I found a command reference that helped. Now I type "i", enter the commit message, hit escape and then type ":wq" to write the message and quit.
This works but seems like a hassle. The only reason I'm writing this post is that I've watched the Peepcode git screencast and I didn't see Geoffrey type any colon or "wq" or anything like that. It seemed like he just typed a message, hit enter, and was back to the command prompt (which is how I would want it to work).
Am I missing something?
