GeneralGit rant, Part II - the word is the thing PinprotectorMarc Clifton2-Feb-13 8:22 
So I'm realizing that part of my problem is with the terminology. I expect "commit" to mean "save changes to the remote repository." I expect "checkout" to mean "get the changes from the remote repository."
 
The fact that all the documentation I read about Git uses those same words, but with completely different meaning, leads to a huge amount of confusion and conflict with my mental picture of a VCS.
 
To all the potential git authors / bloggers / developers out there:
 
I have no problem with local repositories, staging areas, stashes, whatever, but PLEASE, use different words because they have different meanings.
 
For example, "commit" in Git could be better described using the word "stage".
 
Committing, the way non-git'ers think about it, could be better described using the phrase "push stage" or something similar.
 
In fact, I don't think the word "commit" should be used at all with Git!
