I was wondering how to add a new file to version control. I have a project on Github checked out. I created a new file and now I want to tell Git that it should be under version control. I was looking for something like "add to version control" under the right mouse menu but I can't find it. I'm confused about the Git terminology. What are the correct steps?

The Git operation is "add", which in general means add a change to the index (aka "staging area"). You can get there in several ways with egit, all of which are called "Add to Index". There's an item in the "Git" menu in the menubar; there's a toolbar item in the egit toolbar (looks like a +); and there's an item in the "Team" menu on the right-click popup.

If you don't have the egit menubar and toolbar items enabled, you should definitely do that, via Window -> Customize Perspective. For common operations it's a lot more convenient than navigating through the "Team" item in the popup menu.
