Do you get any message at all? If you don't have anything to commit, you won't get an editor, but you should still get a message saying that you have nothing to commit.

Of course, if you use the -m option to specify your commit message, then it won't fire up an editor.

Hey! have someone resolved this? mine comes up with this message:

treehouse:~/workspace/medals$ git commit
On branch master
nothing to commit, working directory clean
