One result of this being a translation of the SVN guide is that it's not
IMO GIT-centric enough. It suggests a number of things that are in
fact excellent foot cannons (git commit -a being the most egregious).
I'd like our document to recommend practices that make it relatively
easy to double and triple check commits. E.g. for direct commit I
generally follow a process of staging with `git add -p` + `git add` for
new files followed by `git status` and/or `git diff --staged`, and then
Obviously people will have varying workflows, but for people with little
git experience, let's try to prime them with good ones (unlike the
quickstart tutorials that do things like `git commit -a -m "foo"`).
