Save the file


Start a new git repo (use ':!' + any command you like)

@vimrocks Have it installed ;) I sometimes just find this way a little easier for machines I don't use often (or servers I don't have fugitive installed on)

You can also type :sh to obtain a full shell. When you've done type exit (or Ctrl+d) to come back in vim
