[gilles at localhost core]$ git status
# On branch 2.0
# Changed but not updated:
#   (use "git add/rm <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
#       deleted:    AUTHORS
no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
[gilles at localhost core]$

and :

[gilles at localhost core]$ git checkout

but AUTHOR file still not there. git doen't work as subversion.... why ?

As you said, you must be more explicit with git :

[gilles at localhost core]$ git checkout AUTHORS
[gilles at localhost core]$ ls
AUTHORS    CMakeLists.txt          COPYING.DOC  databaseserver/
digikam.lsm.cmake  imageplugins/  libs/         NEWS      README.FACE
themedesigner/  TODO.FACE       utilities/
ChangeLog  config-digikam.h.cmake  COPYING.LIB  DESIGN
Doxyfile.cmake     INSTALL        Mainpage.dox  project/  showfoto/
tips            TODO.MYSQLPORT
cmake/     COPYING                 data/        digikam/
HACKING            kioslave/*  README    tests/
[gilles at localhost core]$

In this case, file is restored... but it's not user friendly...
yes, i'm from old school, but why it's always complex for simple task ?

And also, why if i ask to update local copy with remote repository, it
refuse to restore the missing file, as subversion do ? I use alias set
by git config --global alias.up "pull --rebase"

This way to work with this SCM is not logic for me, so far...
