What does "git status" say at this point?

[email protected] /c/Development/wireshark (s7comm)
$ git status
On branch s7comm
Changes not staged for commit:
   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)

         modified:   config.nmake

no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")

should I do
git checkout -- config.nmake
?

But then I'll always have to change it when I want to build wireshark on
my own.
Oh, yeah, I forgot about that file always being modified on Windows 
(it's been years since I tried to build on Windows).
For the short term, I'd suggest doing:

git stash
git review [-f]
git stash pop

There might be a better answer longer term--maybe one of the guys who actually uses Windows has practical suggestion.
Sorry for my 'dumb' questions, I've no experience with git and only
single-user experience with svn. Building a wireshark dissector is
easier than getting through git...
It gets easier with time. :-)
