    No.  Pushing works between repositories.  It is the way to propagate
    changes to others.

At this level, that's just a detail.  The must important thing about
CVS commit is that it alters what other people will get if they ask to
get the current version from the repository.  With git, the operation
which does that is `push'.

    No.  Saving a file will not give you all the version control history and
    tools and diffs and branching and other tools that committing does under

Ok, but those are details.  The crucial point is that saving a file,
or git commit, alters your own data only; it does not affect what
other users will get from the published repository.
