Oh!  I'm used to checking it out via subversion, but apparently that
doesn't work any longer (I see 2015/06 but no 07).  My understanding
of git isn't sufficient to translate my usual workflow of

 svn co svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/publicity/dpn/en/2015
 [edit file]
 svn diff
 svn -m "first pass" commit

into a working git version.  I can get this close:

 git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/publicity/dpn.git
 cd dpn
 [edit file]
 git diff
 git -m "first pass" commit

But this tells me "Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'",
whatever that means.  Should I perhaps be doing something other than a
commit?  Should I have started with something other than a clone?
