Pull, Commit, Push seems to be missing, or noone's able to find it ;)

The day to day processes of repository operation was not the intention of the quickstart guide.

It was targeted at getting the initial clone and GitExt setup correct. In my defense I have included links to further help on Git and GitExt at the end of the guide.

There should be a more complete guide for not only GitExt, but a general Git repository usage too. The available documentation is rather ambiguous at times and certainly terse and difficult to understand as only Mr Torvalds can be.

Hehe, okay, good point. I suppose a short "First pull, then Commit, then push" or so, might be useful.

Was left open for feedback to gauge how effective it was. A fuller workflow guide should be done, but the quickstart seems to fill its purpose.
