Are there similar options when commiting? What is the correct line? 
Also, I don't dare forget to use '-m "message describing my changes"'. 
I once forgot that and found myself in front of vim. It scares the bit 
Jesus out of me! However, I messed that "-m" bit up during my last 
commit (because I tried to use multiple lines). Maybe I do should use 
vim next time. Are there some hints on how to use it? For example, how 
do I tell it that I'm finished editing?
