This isn’t that complicated, but I’ve noticed several people having trouble with it at first.

FWIW the way to explain this to SVN people is that clones are branches: you (add and) commit to the local repo (branch) then push to the remote (merge your changes into the trunk).

(I know, the analogy isn't exact, since there are branches in git as well, but clones are more like SVN branches than git branches are in many ways.)
