I second google (or duckduckgo, for that matter)

But actually, to revert changes in a particular file, `git
status` , a command you should run often to see where you are,
gives you a pretty good hint:

    [emacs] echo bla >> README
    [emacs] git status
    # On branch master
    # Changes not staged for commit:
    #   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
    #   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working
    # modified:   README
    no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")

More hints would be there if I had staged something, telling
me how to move between staged and unstaged states of a file.
The only hint I (personally) dislike is the "git pull" one that
appears on a failed "git push".

Perhaps these hints aren't showing by default with some git
installations and that's causing confusion?
