Challenge 7 of 11, "An Old Fashioned Git Together" .... Wrong Answer ? git commit -a -m "Add files"

I've reviewed the video on committing ALL changes that are in the staging area to the repository, and this should work. Why am I getting a failure?

Hi MaryJo,

Just remove -a

We are committing message, let's type only like this: git commit -m "Add files" :)

I tried that before and it did not work, but this time again it did. Thanks for helping clarify! ;)
