Check them in, then pull.  It's as simple as that.

But Richard just said that “checking in”‚ to him, means putting it in the central repository.

A better phrasing is: Commit, then pull. Committing is a local operation. Checking in, as Richard sees it, is pushing.

Actually, I think “checking in” isn't even in the git vocabulary. Better not to use the term in order to avoid confusion.
