If you did not add or remove files (often the case) the delete and osc
ar is not required.

It's easier to do osc ci -m "commit comment"

Most likely a small error either in not deleting the .obsinfo files
before your command osc ar
or OBS (stupidly) showing the diff between locally created files.

If you have to run the osc ar, it's important to remove before all the
files except
  .patches and special config files*

* if not downloaded from git via _service.

To know what files are really in your project dir use the command
  osc ls -u project_name package_name
  osc ls -u home:erichcm:branches:Cloud:StarlingX:2.0 fm-mgr

Your first submission is OK.
