[Newbies] Monticello Copy vs Save

Hi Everyone,

So I am working to learn the ins and out of monticello but the available
documentation isn't super detailed. I figured I would look towards some
documentation for other DVCSs and see if the general principles could help
guide me through Monticello.  Hg-init is one of my favorite tutorials, so I
thought I would try to work through it using monticello, and mapping as
best as I could onto a fairly mainstream DVCS model.

So I have created a package and made some edits and saved them to a local
monticello repository on disk.  Now I would like to send my changes to some
hypothetical "central" repository that me and the rest of the team are
working off of.  This would be the equivalent of a "push" in mercurial.  If
I select the "central" repository in the Monticello Browser and click save,
it pops up a commit message window and looks like it will be saving a new
version of my package into the central repository, even though I haven't
made any changes to the package.  On the other hand I can also open my
local repository and copy the last revision into the central repository.

Which of these is considered the standard way of using Monticello.  Or
should I be doing something completely different?  Is trying to map "hg
push" onto Monticello completely wrong-headed?  Please let me know and I
will keep trying to soldier on.

Thanks for your help,
Jeff G.
