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>
git 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
in future.
