`git commit -a` is what I did. It operates only on mods to files already known to git. New files must be explicitly added to the index with `git add`. 

`git status` should show new files as long as they aren’t explicitly listed in .gitignore. Running git status and git add v2.6 is part of the procedure in, so either I screwed up and didn’t do it or it doesn’t work. I’ll have to look at my local htdocs-docs repo when I get back on Monday to know which.
