Ahh, that makes more sense now.
How have you been checking out Samba4 for your testing?
Anyway, for an introduction to git see:
The branch to checkout is 'master'.

The basic pattern once you have a local git checkout is:
git add <all new and changed files for this commit>
(then provide a commit message)
repeat for each commit you wish to create
Then run git format-patch -3 (if you created 3 commits)
Mail me the result.

Yeah, that's because you are not in a git checkout.
If it's all too much then I'll happily do it for you, but I wanted to
give you the chance to set up properly, so we can both work more easily
