I don't really understand your questions. The Gambas IDE offers a GUI 
interface that issued some git commands for you. All git commands 
executed by the IDE are, by default, printed in the console of the 
version control bottom tab (except the git commands that just read the 
state of files and do not modify anything).

You can entirely manage your project from the command-line.

So why a "Put under version control with GIT" menu entry? Because Gambas 
creates a ".gitignore" file for you that tells git which files of the 
project directory must be managed by git, and which must not (they are 
the file that are generated by the compiler).
