Git commit not created by VersionPress

I’m trying to run VersionPress on Local, have managed to add Git to the environment, VersionPress even activates and git init runs successfully but the first commit is not created. So it seems like if git init worked but git commit didn’t. No errors are reported though, any ideas what it could be?

I didn’t have much time to debug this yet so just asking if someone has seen an issue like that.

Here’s a draft of the blog post I’m writing about VP + Local.
