First steps with EGit

I have pushed my first bug fix with EGit today (bug 319343, which occurred when canceling an XML Security Tools wizard). Developing the fix was easy, using EGit not (OK, some rookie trouble): The commit to my local repo worked fine. But the push failed. I dropped over bug 317389.
