     19A major difference between Git and Subversion is that you have to select which changes you would like to add to a commit. So from the changes in your working directory, you add these to the index, and the changes that are in the index are committed.

     23In Subversion, the `svn add` command just registers untracked files for committing, whereas `git add` also puts in tracked files with untracked changes into the index.
