What Others Think

first i needed to install the git-core package to get this command to run. After installing that package i get the following error: "fatal: Not a git repository" It is not working ?

Enter git-add interactive mode: git add -i type u (update) type * (stage all changes, i.e. all deletions) type q (quit) Then you may check in git status that deletions are staged.
