Init a new repository

To take a folder and start tracking its changes, just right-click it and then Git -> Create new.

Hint 1: You can't put a git repository inside another repository. If you don't see Create new as an option, you're probably inside an existing repository, and you need to move up to a higher folder.

Hint 2: Rather than using the text bar at the top of the window, you can use any of the methods described in the DiffPlug quickstart to get the context-menu for a file.

Now that you've got an empty repository, you can start making commits.
