Hey Mark,

thanks for the feedback.

It's a good point yes and I have bee caught out by this in the past.

What I didn't mention is that I use VSCode and it's awesome git interface for adding specific files for what to commit.

I do use git s (git status) quite heavily when not in VSCode.

I use gitx on Mac to do most of my committing just because I want to be sure what's in and what's not in the commit.

I've always done command line aliases (bash and bat), like 's' for 'git status', but I'm starting to think about using git aliases instead to remind myself I'm still in a git frame of mind.
