git-status - Show the working tree status
Displays paths that have differences between the index file and the
current HEAD commit, paths that have differences between the working
tree and the index file, and paths in the working tree that are not
tracked by git (and are not ignored by gitignore(5)). The first are
what you _would_ commit by running git commit; the second and third are
what you _could_ commit by running git add before running git commit.
The command takes the same set of options as git-commit; it shows what
would be committed if the same options are given to git-commit.
If there is no path that is different between the index file and the
current HEAD commit (i.e., there is nothing to commit by running
git-commit), the command exits with non-zero status.
The output from this command is designed to be used as a commit
template comment, and all the output lines are prefixed with #.
The paths mentioned in the output, unlike many other git commands, are
made relative to the current directory if you are working in a
subdirectory (this is on purpose, to help cutting and pasting). See the
status.relativePaths config option below.
The command honors color.status (or status.color — they mean the same
thing and the latter is kept for backward compatibility) and
color.status.<slot> configuration variables to colorize its output.
If the config variable status.relativePaths is set to false, then all
paths shown are relative to the repository root, not to the current
If status.submodulesummary is set to a non zero number or true
(identical to -1 or an unlimited number), the submodule summary will be
enabled and a summary of commits for modified submodules will be shown
(see --summary-limit option of git-submodule(1)).
