In case you (the original poster) are new to git:

If you already committed the changes into your copy of the working tree 
(as it seems), you can also squash your commits after the fact. Myself, 
I've used a new branch and "git merge --squash" (google for it for 
usage) to discard the testing history and produce just one commit of the 
final version for sending to vlc-devel.

It is also recommended to work on a separate branch, so that you can 
keep the master branch synced with origin/master (i.e. the official 
codebase). See "git branch" and "git checkout".

In general, see also instructions on wiki: http://wiki.videolan.org/Git
