plugins still exist even though they're deleted?

So I deleted some plugins from my app on my local machine and pushed
the changes to my git repository. Using capistrano to update the code,
I found that the plugins still exist in the current directory! Does
anyone have any ideas as to what is causing this?

Did you enter "rm ..." or "git rm ..."?

What do you mean? When I deleted them from my local machine I just
deleted the folder (dragged into trash and emptied).

If you did that then you didn't actually delete them from your
repository.

try
git commit -a -m 'comment'

Thanks, that seems to have done the trick since but I'll test again to
make sure. What does that -a option do?

it adds everything in the current directory to your git repository.
