Yes, but I don't have the time to learn the git-fu at the moment.
I work on my local cloned tree and when I'm ready or to tired I just delete
the current git version in the editing window and copy my new version.
This way I get a diff in a simple and fast way add some commit notes,
hit commit and I'm done and can drink a beer and go to sleep.
I agree with you that this is not the most elegant way to use git
but it works for me.

Ciao and keep up the good work,
