You are right. I used a branch name that existed for other files in my
repository. This checking for known branch names on merge has been
discussed earlier. But this is not the point here. Assume an existing
branch name (for your repository) behind the -r. This file in question
should then be added to this branch.

Of course I could extend the batch file to create another file first,
add it to the branch and commit, but I think this would blow up the
example. So please exchange "somebranch" in the example to a known
(testing) branch name in your repository.

Thank you for trying!

Best regards,
O. Koltermann
