Git Challenge task 3 of 11

I'm really not sure what I'm missing here. The challenge:

And now that it's been added to the repository, let's commit it.

so i typed in:

git commit -m "test" index.html

I always get this error:

Bummer! Remember to put your commit message in quotes. Try again

It's already in quotes.

Is this a bug?

Hi Avelino, since you're already working with the project, you should be able to commit it with:

git commit -m "test"

wow that worked! thanks Dustin.

though i think it doesn't make any sense.. afaik, you have to specify the filename, otherwise you use the flag -am to commit ALL.

and i think the error was misleading: "Bummer! Remember to put your commit message in quotes. Try again"

and got a weird result, with the answer you provided:


But, all good! I can now proceed..

THanks much
