For _your_ new changes:  git commit

For getting _others_ changes from a remote repository:  git pull

There are other commands that affect things, but the above are the most

For people that use git, they really do think of "git commit" as the
git analogue of "cvs commit" -- it does "most of the things" cvs commit

I guess you can think of cvs commit as being split into two different
commands in git:  git commit (which does most of the work -- bundling up
the changes to your working directory, adding a log message, updating
the head of the current branch), and git push (which sends your local
changes to a remote repository).

Stephen Turnbull posted a good explanation in this thread.
