Oh man, this is just way too frustrating.

Maybe it's a Windows thing, but nothing about git is clear to me 
anymore. I feel like I'm trying to learn from three different 
manuals, none of which quite work. Then I try out a couple of git 
commands in the bash shell and next thing I know, everything's 

I guess I'm confused about the difference between origin and 
master. And the difference between pulling and fetching (and 
cloning, though that's not mentioned in the CG).

If I accidentally make changes to master, and I try to pull from 
origin, it says it's already up to date. I assumed origin was 
supposed to be at, so does that mean I accidentally 
made my local master the origin? Is there even such a thing as a 
local master?

And how do I exit the EDIT_COMMITMSG window? I've included an 
image showing the window. If I click on the X button, the whole 
git bash shell closes along with it. That can't be right. And when 
did my lily-local get ahead of origin/master by 47 commits?

I think the instructions in the CG just aren't clear enough. Is 
anyone out there happily making git patches on Windows? Let me
