Thanks Guy.

That did the trick.

Not doing a "git commit" before the "git push".  You've staged your changes, but you haven't committed them yet, as per "Changes to be committed".

With CVS and SVN, if you're going to be working with code for which there's a remote "official" repository, you check out a tree from the remote repository, and when you commit changes, they go into the remote repository.

with Git (and possibly with other "distributed" version control systems), you don't check out a tree from a remote repository, you "clone" the remote repository, so you have your own repository.  "Committing" means "checking into your own personal local repository", and sending changes to a *remote* repository is done with a separate operation - either a "push", where you send your changes to the remote repository, or a "pull", where the people maintaining the remote repository pull your changes from your repository (which, for them, is the remote repository) to their repository (which, for them, is the local repository).
