Thanks Reinhold

I've not been able to work out how to push the changes to just a single file or directory - I presume that's possible? I was wary of pushing the whole repository in case I had a few forgotten local commits, but that was all I could make work. Fortunately there was only one and that was quite recent. I think this was a change Graham and I made simultaneously.

Do you have a recommended way of working? I'll only be changing the documentation files.

Could someone please check this has done what it should and that I've not
screwed up anything.

You commited that commit to tweaks.itely, but also some other commits, like

2008-03-29 18:48:16: Fix duplicated paragraph (fb0ab0825eb130adb2fea6c66...)

and lots of merges due to that older local commit of yours. Since you had a local commit, which was not in master, each pull created a new commit in your
local repository, which you now also pushed to the server. There is no
difference in the actual contents of the files, but the git history is simply
cluttered with some unnecessary merge commits...
