DESCRIPTION

       You can query/set/replace/unset options with this command. The name is
       actually the section and the key separated by a dot, and the value will
       be escaped.

       Multiple lines can be added to an option by using the --add option. If
       you want to update or unset an option which can occur on multiple
       lines, a POSIX regexp value_regex needs to be given. Only the existing
       values that match the regexp are updated or unset. If you want to
       handle the lines that do not match the regex, just prepend a single
       exclamation mark in front (see also the section called "EXAMPLES").

       The type specifier can be either --int or --bool, to make git config
       ensure that the variable(s) are of the given type and convert the value
       to the canonical form (simple decimal number for int, a "true" or
       "false" string for bool), or --path, which does some path expansion
       (see --path below). If no type specifier is passed, no checks or
       transformations are performed on the value.

       The file-option can be one of --system, --global or --file which
       specify where the values will be read from or written to. The default
       is to assume the config file of the current repository, .git/config
       unless defined otherwise with GIT_DIR and GIT_CONFIG (see the section
       called "FILES").

       This command will fail (with exit code ret) if:

        1. The config file is invalid (ret=3),

        2. can not write to the config file (ret=4),

        3. no section or name was provided (ret=2),

        4. the section or key is invalid (ret=1),

        5. you try to unset an option which does not exist (ret=5),

        6. you try to unset/set an option for which multiple lines match
           (ret=5),

        7. you try to use an invalid regexp (ret=6), or

        8. you use --global option without $HOME being properly set (ret=128).

       On success, the command returns the exit code 0.

OPTIONS

       --replace-all
           Default behavior is to replace at most one line. This replaces all
           lines matching the key (and optionally the value_regex).

       --add
           Adds a new line to the option without altering any existing values.
           This is the same as providing ^$ as the value_regex in
           --replace-all.

       --get
           Get the value for a given key (optionally filtered by a regex
           matching the value). Returns error code 1 if the key was not found
           and error code 2 if multiple key values were found.

       --get-all
           Like get, but does not fail if the number of values for the key is
           not exactly one.

       --get-regexp
           Like --get-all, but interprets the name as a regular expression and
           writes out the key names. Regular expression matching is currently
           case-sensitive and done against a canonicalized version of the key
           in which section and variable names are lowercased, but subsection
           names are not.

       --global
           For writing options: write to global ~/.gitconfig file rather than
           the repository .git/config.

           For reading options: read only from global ~/.gitconfig rather than
           from all available files.

           See also the section called "FILES".

       --system
           For writing options: write to system-wide $(prefix)/etc/gitconfig
           rather than the repository .git/config.

           For reading options: read only from system-wide
           $(prefix)/etc/gitconfig rather than from all available files.

           See also the section called "FILES".

       -f config-file, --file config-file
           Use the given config file instead of the one specified by
           GIT_CONFIG.

       --remove-section
           Remove the given section from the configuration file.

       --rename-section
           Rename the given section to a new name.

       --unset
           Remove the line matching the key from config file.

       --unset-all
           Remove all lines matching the key from config file.

       -l, --list
           List all variables set in config file.

       --bool

           git config will ensure that the output is "true" or "false"

       --int

           git config will ensure that the output is a simple decimal number.
           An optional value suffix of k, m, or g in the config file will
           cause the value to be multiplied by 1024, 1048576, or 1073741824
           prior to output.

       --bool-or-int

           git config will ensure that the output matches the format of either
           --bool or --int, as described above.

       --path

           git-config will expand leading ~ to the value of $HOME, and ~user
           to the home directory for the specified user. This option has no
           effect when setting the value (but you can use git config bla ~/
           from the command line to let your shell do the expansion).

       -z, --null
           For all options that output values and/or keys, always end values
           with the null character (instead of a newline). Use newline instead
           as a delimiter between key and value. This allows for secure
           parsing of the output without getting confused e.g. by values that
           contain line breaks.

       --get-colorbool name [stdout-is-tty]
           Find the color setting for name (e.g.  color.diff) and output
           "true" or "false".  stdout-is-tty should be either "true" or
           "false", and is taken into account when configuration says "auto".
           If stdout-is-tty is missing, then checks the standard output of the
           command itself, and exits with status 0 if color is to be used, or
           exits with status 1 otherwise. When the color setting for name is
           undefined, the command uses color.ui as fallback.

       --get-color name [default]
           Find the color configured for name (e.g.  color.diff.new) and
           output it as the ANSI color escape sequence to the standard output.
           The optional default parameter is used instead, if there is no
           color configured for name.

       -e, --edit
           Opens an editor to modify the specified config file; either
           --system, --global, or repository (default).

FILES

       If not set explicitly with --file, there are three files where git
       config will search for configuration options:

       $GIT_DIR/config
           Repository specific configuration file. (The filename is of course
           relative to the repository root, not the working directory.)

       ~/.gitconfig
           User-specific configuration file. Also called "global"
           configuration file.

       $(prefix)/etc/gitconfig
           System-wide configuration file.

       If no further options are given, all reading options will read all of
       these files that are available. If the global or the system-wide
       configuration file are not available they will be ignored. If the
       repository configuration file is not available or readable, git config
       will exit with a non-zero error code. However, in neither case will an
       error message be issued.

       All writing options will per default write to the repository specific
       configuration file. Note that this also affects options like
       --replace-all and --unset. git config will only ever change one file at
       a time.

       You can override these rules either by command line options or by
       environment variables. The --global and the --system options will limit
       the file used to the global or system-wide file respectively. The
       GIT_CONFIG environment variable has a similar effect, but you can
       specify any filename you want.

ENVIRONMENT

       GIT_CONFIG
           Take the configuration from the given file instead of .git/config.
           Using the "--global" option forces this to ~/.gitconfig. Using the
           "--system" option forces this to $(prefix)/etc/gitconfig.

       See also the section called "FILES".

EXAMPLES

       Given a .git/config like this:

           #
           # This is the config file, and
           # a '#' or ';' character indicates
           # a comment
           #

           ; core variables
           [core]
                   ; Don't trust file modes
                   filemode = false

           ; Our diff algorithm
           [diff]
                   external = /usr/local/bin/diff-wrapper
                   renames = true

           ; Proxy settings
           [core]
                   gitproxy="proxy-command" for kernel.org
                   gitproxy=default-proxy ; for all the rest

       you can set the filemode to true with

           % git config core.filemode true

       The hypothetical proxy command entries actually have a postfix to
       discern what URL they apply to. Here is how to change the entry for
       kernel.org to "ssh".

           % git config core.gitproxy '"ssh" for kernel.org' 'for kernel.org$'

       This makes sure that only the key/value pair for kernel.org is
       replaced.

       To delete the entry for renames, do

           % git config --unset diff.renames

       If you want to delete an entry for a multivar (like core.gitproxy
       above), you have to provide a regex matching the value of exactly one
       line.

       To query the value for a given key, do

           % git config --get core.filemode

       or

           % git config core.filemode

       or, to query a multivar:

           % git config --get core.gitproxy "for kernel.org$"

       If you want to know all the values for a multivar, do:

           % git config --get-all core.gitproxy

       If you like to live dangerously, you can replace all core.gitproxy by a
       new one with

           % git config --replace-all core.gitproxy ssh

       However, if you really only want to replace the line for the default
       proxy, i.e. the one without a "for ..." postfix, do something like
       this:

           % git config core.gitproxy ssh '! for '

       To actually match only values with an exclamation mark, you have to

           % git config section.key value '[!]'

       To add a new proxy, without altering any of the existing ones, use

           % git config core.gitproxy '"proxy-command" for example.com'

       An example to use customized color from the configuration in your
       script:

           #!/bin/sh
           WS=$(git config --get-color color.diff.whitespace "blue reverse")
           RESET=$(git config --get-color "" "reset")
           echo "${WS}your whitespace color or blue reverse${RESET}"

CONFIGURATION FILE

       The git configuration file contains a number of variables that affect
       the git command's behavior. The .git/config file in each repository is
       used to store the configuration for that repository, and
       $HOME/.gitconfig is used to store a per-user configuration as fallback
       values for the .git/config file. The file /etc/gitconfig can be used to
       store a system-wide default configuration.

       The configuration variables are used by both the git plumbing and the
       porcelains. The variables are divided into sections, wherein the fully
       qualified variable name of the variable itself is the last
       dot-separated segment and the section name is everything before the
       last dot. The variable names are case-insensitive, allow only
       alphanumeric characters and -, and must start with an alphabetic
       character. Some variables may appear multiple times.

   Syntax
       The syntax is fairly flexible and permissive; whitespaces are mostly
       ignored. The # and ; characters begin comments to the end of line,
       blank lines are ignored.

       The file consists of sections and variables. A section begins with the
       name of the section in square brackets and continues until the next
       section begins. Section names are not case sensitive. Only alphanumeric
       characters, - and . are allowed in section names. Each variable must
       belong to some section, which means that there must be a section header
       before the first setting of a variable.

       Sections can be further divided into subsections. To begin a subsection
       put its name in double quotes, separated by space from the section
       name, in the section header, like in the example below:

                   [section "subsection"]

       Subsection names are case sensitive and can contain any characters
       except newline (doublequote " and backslash have to be escaped as \"
       and \\, respectively). Section headers cannot span multiple lines.
       Variables may belong directly to a section or to a given subsection.
       You can have [section] if you have [section "subsection"], but you
       don't need to.

       There is also a deprecated [section.subsection] syntax. With this
       syntax, the subsection name is converted to lower-case and is also
       compared case sensitively. These subsection names follow the same
       restrictions as section names.

       All the other lines (and the remainder of the line after the section
       header) are recognized as setting variables, in the form name = value.
       If there is no equal sign on the line, the entire line is taken as name
       and the variable is recognized as boolean "true". The variable names
       are case-insensitive, allow only alphanumeric characters and -, and
       must start with an alphabetic character. There can be more than one
       value for a given variable; we say then that the variable is
       multivalued.

       Leading and trailing whitespace in a variable value is discarded.
       Internal whitespace within a variable value is retained verbatim.

       The values following the equals sign in variable assign are all either
       a string, an integer, or a boolean. Boolean values may be given as
       yes/no, 1/0, true/false or on/off. Case is not significant in boolean
       values, when converting value to the canonical form using --bool type
       specifier; git config will ensure that the output is "true" or "false".

       String values may be entirely or partially enclosed in double quotes.
       You need to enclose variable values in double quotes if you want to
       preserve leading or trailing whitespace, or if the variable value
       contains comment characters (i.e. it contains # or ;). Double quote "
       and backslash \ characters in variable values must be escaped: use \"
       for " and \\ for \.

       The following escape sequences (beside \" and \\) are recognized: \n
       for newline character (NL), \t for horizontal tabulation (HT, TAB) and
       \b for backspace (BS). No other char escape sequence, nor octal char
       sequences are valid.

       Variable values ending in a \ are continued on the next line in the
       customary UNIX fashion.

       Some variables may require a special value format.

   Example
           # Core variables
           [core]
                   ; Don't trust file modes
                   filemode = false

           # Our diff algorithm
           [diff]
                   external = /usr/local/bin/diff-wrapper
                   renames = true

           [branch "devel"]
                   remote = origin
                   merge = refs/heads/devel

           # Proxy settings
           [core]
                   gitProxy="ssh" for "kernel.org"
                   gitProxy=default-proxy ; for the rest

   Variables
       Note that this list is non-comprehensive and not necessarily complete.
       For command-specific variables, you will find a more detailed
       description in the appropriate manual page. You will find a description
       of non-core porcelain configuration variables in the respective
       porcelain documentation.

       advice.*
           These variables control various optional help messages designed to
           aid new users. All advice.*  variables default to true, and you can
           tell Git that you do not need help by setting these to false:

           pushNonFastForward
               Advice shown when git-push(1) refuses non-fast-forward refs.

           statusHints
               Directions on how to stage/unstage/add shown in the output of
               git-status(1) and the template shown when writing commit
               messages.

           commitBeforeMerge
               Advice shown when git-merge(1) refuses to merge to avoid
               overwriting local changes.

           resolveConflict
               Advices shown by various commands when conflicts prevent the
               operation from being performed.

           implicitIdentity
               Advice on how to set your identity configuration when your
               information is guessed from the system username and domain
               name.

           detachedHead
               Advice shown when you used git-checkout(1) to move to the
               detach HEAD state, to instruct how to create a local branch
               after the fact.

       core.fileMode
           If false, the executable bit differences between the index and the
           working tree are ignored; useful on broken filesystems like FAT.
           See git-update-index(1).

           The default is true, except git-clone(1) or git-init(1) will probe
           and set core.fileMode false if appropriate when the repository is
           created.

       core.ignoreCygwinFSTricks
           This option is only used by Cygwin implementation of Git. If false,
           the Cygwin stat() and lstat() functions are used. This may be
           useful if your repository consists of a few separate directories
           joined in one hierarchy using Cygwin mount. If true, Git uses
           native Win32 API whenever it is possible and falls back to Cygwin
           functions only to handle symbol links. The native mode is more than
           twice faster than normal Cygwin l/stat() functions. True by
           default, unless core.filemode is true, in which case
           ignoreCygwinFSTricks is ignored as Cygwin's POSIX emulation is
           required to support core.filemode.

       core.ignorecase
           If true, this option enables various workarounds to enable git to
           work better on filesystems that are not case sensitive, like FAT.
           For example, if a directory listing finds "makefile" when git
           expects "Makefile", git will assume it is really the same file, and
           continue to remember it as "Makefile".

           The default is false, except git-clone(1) or git-init(1) will probe
           and set core.ignorecase true if appropriate when the repository is
           created.

       core.trustctime
           If false, the ctime differences between the index and the working
           tree are ignored; useful when the inode change time is regularly
           modified by something outside Git (file system crawlers and some
           backup systems). See git-update-index(1). True by default.

       core.quotepath
           The commands that output paths (e.g.  ls-files, diff), when not
           given the -z option, will quote "unusual" characters in the
           pathname by enclosing the pathname in a double-quote pair and with
           backslashes the same way strings in C source code are quoted. If
           this variable is set to false, the bytes higher than 0x80 are not
           quoted but output as verbatim. Note that double quote, backslash
           and control characters are always quoted without -z regardless of
           the setting of this variable.

       core.eol
           Sets the line ending type to use in the working directory for files
           that have the text property set. Alternatives are lf, crlf and
           native, which uses the platform's native line ending. The default
           value is native. See gitattributes(5) for more information on
           end-of-line conversion.

       core.safecrlf
           If true, makes git check if converting CRLF is reversible when
           end-of-line conversion is active. Git will verify if a command
           modifies a file in the work tree either directly or indirectly. For
           example, committing a file followed by checking out the same file
           should yield the original file in the work tree. If this is not the
           case for the current setting of core.autocrlf, git will reject the
           file. The variable can be set to "warn", in which case git will
           only warn about an irreversible conversion but continue the
           operation.

           CRLF conversion bears a slight chance of corrupting data. When it
           is enabled, git will convert CRLF to LF during commit and LF to
           CRLF during checkout. A file that contains a mixture of LF and CRLF
           before the commit cannot be recreated by git. For text files this
           is the right thing to do: it corrects line endings such that we
           have only LF line endings in the repository. But for binary files
           that are accidentally classified as text the conversion can corrupt
           data.

           If you recognize such corruption early you can easily fix it by
           setting the conversion type explicitly in .gitattributes. Right
           after committing you still have the original file in your work tree
           and this file is not yet corrupted. You can explicitly tell git
           that this file is binary and git will handle the file
           appropriately.

           Unfortunately, the desired effect of cleaning up text files with
           mixed line endings and the undesired effect of corrupting binary
           files cannot be distinguished. In both cases CRLFs are removed in
           an irreversible way. For text files this is the right thing to do
           because CRLFs are line endings, while for binary files converting
           CRLFs corrupts data.

           Note, this safety check does not mean that a checkout will generate
           a file identical to the original file for a different setting of
           core.eol and core.autocrlf, but only for the current one. For
           example, a text file with LF would be accepted with core.eol=lf and
           could later be checked out with core.eol=crlf, in which case the
           resulting file would contain CRLF, although the original file
           contained LF. However, in both work trees the line endings would be
           consistent, that is either all LF or all CRLF, but never mixed. A
           file with mixed line endings would be reported by the core.safecrlf
           mechanism.

       core.autocrlf
           Setting this variable to "true" is almost the same as setting the
           text attribute to "auto" on all files except that text files are
           not guaranteed to be normalized: files that contain CRLF in the
           repository will not be touched. Use this setting if you want to
           have CRLF line endings in your working directory even though the
           repository does not have normalized line endings. This variable can
           be set to input, in which case no output conversion is performed.

       core.symlinks
           If false, symbolic links are checked out as small plain files that
           contain the link text.  git-update-index(1) and git-add(1) will not
           change the recorded type to regular file. Useful on filesystems
           like FAT that do not support symbolic links.

           The default is true, except git-clone(1) or git-init(1) will probe
           and set core.symlinks false if appropriate when the repository is
           created.

       core.gitProxy
           A "proxy command" to execute (as command host port) instead of
           establishing direct connection to the remote server when using the
           git protocol for fetching. If the variable value is in the "COMMAND
           for DOMAIN" format, the command is applied only on hostnames ending
           with the specified domain string. This variable may be set multiple
           times and is matched in the given order; the first match wins.

           Can be overridden by the GIT_PROXY_COMMAND environment variable
           (which always applies universally, without the special "for"
           handling).

           The special string none can be used as the proxy command to specify
           that no proxy be used for a given domain pattern. This is useful
           for excluding servers inside a firewall from proxy use, while
           defaulting to a common proxy for external domains.

       core.ignoreStat
           If true, commands which modify both the working tree and the index
           will mark the updated paths with the "assume unchanged" bit in the
           index. These marked files are then assumed to stay unchanged in the
           working tree, until you mark them otherwise manually - Git will not
           detect the file changes by lstat() calls. This is useful on systems
           where those are very slow, such as Microsoft Windows. See git-
           update-index(1). False by default.

       core.preferSymlinkRefs
           Instead of the default "symref" format for HEAD and other symbolic
           reference files, use symbolic links. This is sometimes needed to
           work with old scripts that expect HEAD to be a symbolic link.

       core.bare
           If true this repository is assumed to be bare and has no working
           directory associated with it. If this is the case a number of
           commands that require a working directory will be disabled, such as
           git-add(1) or git-merge(1).

           This setting is automatically guessed by git-clone(1) or git-
           init(1) when the repository was created. By default a repository
           that ends in "/.git" is assumed to be not bare (bare = false),
           while all other repositories are assumed to be bare (bare = true).

       core.worktree
           Set the path to the root of the working tree. This can be
           overridden by the GIT_WORK_TREE environment variable and the
           --work-tree command line option. The value can be an absolute path
           or relative to the path to the .git directory, which is either
           specified by --git-dir or GIT_DIR, or automatically discovered. If
           --git-dir or GIT_DIR is specified but none of --work-tree,
           GIT_WORK_TREE and core.worktree is specified, the current working
           directory is regarded as the top level of your working tree.

           Note that this variable is honored even when set in a configuration
           file in a ".git" subdirectory of a directory and its value differs
           from the latter directory (e.g. "/path/to/.git/config" has
           core.worktree set to "/different/path"), which is most likely a
           misconfiguration. Running git commands in the "/path/to" directory
           will still use "/different/path" as the root of the work tree and
           can cause confusion unless you know what you are doing (e.g. you
           are creating a read-only snapshot of the same index to a location
           different from the repository's usual working tree).

       core.logAllRefUpdates
           Enable the reflog. Updates to a ref <ref> is logged to the file
           "$GIT_DIR/logs/<ref>", by appending the new and old SHA1, the
           date/time and the reason of the update, but only when the file
           exists. If this configuration variable is set to true, missing
           "$GIT_DIR/logs/<ref>" file is automatically created for branch
           heads (i.e. under refs/heads/), remote refs (i.e. under
           refs/remotes/), note refs (i.e. under refs/notes/), and the
           symbolic ref HEAD.

           This information can be used to determine what commit was the tip
           of a branch "2 days ago".

           This value is true by default in a repository that has a working
           directory associated with it, and false by default in a bare
           repository.

       core.repositoryFormatVersion
           Internal variable identifying the repository format and layout
           version.

       core.sharedRepository
           When group (or true), the repository is made shareable between
           several users in a group (making sure all the files and objects are
           group-writable). When all (or world or everybody), the repository
           will be readable by all users, additionally to being
           group-shareable. When umask (or false), git will use permissions
           reported by umask(2). When 0xxx, where 0xxx is an octal number,
           files in the repository will have this mode value.  0xxx will
           override user's umask value (whereas the other options will only
           override requested parts of the user's umask value). Examples: 0660
           will make the repo read/write-able for the owner and group, but
           inaccessible to others (equivalent to group unless umask is e.g.
           0022).  0640 is a repository that is group-readable but not
           group-writable. See git-init(1). False by default.

       core.warnAmbiguousRefs
           If true, git will warn you if the ref name you passed it is
           ambiguous and might match multiple refs in the .git/refs/ tree.
           True by default.

       core.compression
           An integer -1..9, indicating a default compression level. -1 is the
           zlib default. 0 means no compression, and 1..9 are various
           speed/size tradeoffs, 9 being slowest. If set, this provides a
           default to other compression variables, such as
           core.loosecompression and pack.compression.

       core.loosecompression
           An integer -1..9, indicating the compression level for objects that
           are not in a pack file. -1 is the zlib default. 0 means no
           compression, and 1..9 are various speed/size tradeoffs, 9 being
           slowest. If not set, defaults to core.compression. If that is not
           set, defaults to 1 (best speed).

       core.packedGitWindowSize
           Number of bytes of a pack file to map into memory in a single
           mapping operation. Larger window sizes may allow your system to
           process a smaller number of large pack files more quickly. Smaller
           window sizes will negatively affect performance due to increased
           calls to the operating system's memory manager, but may improve
           performance when accessing a large number of large pack files.

           Default is 1 MiB if NO_MMAP was set at compile time, otherwise 32
           MiB on 32 bit platforms and 1 GiB on 64 bit platforms. This should
           be reasonable for all users/operating systems. You probably do not
           need to adjust this value.

           Common unit suffixes of k, m, or g are supported.

       core.packedGitLimit
           Maximum number of bytes to map simultaneously into memory from pack
           files. If Git needs to access more than this many bytes at once to
           complete an operation it will unmap existing regions to reclaim
           virtual address space within the process.

           Default is 256 MiB on 32 bit platforms and 8 GiB on 64 bit
           platforms. This should be reasonable for all users/operating
           systems, except on the largest projects. You probably do not need
           to adjust this value.

           Common unit suffixes of k, m, or g are supported.

       core.deltaBaseCacheLimit
           Maximum number of bytes to reserve for caching base objects that
           may be referenced by multiple deltified objects. By storing the
           entire decompressed base objects in a cache Git is able to avoid
           unpacking and decompressing frequently used base objects multiple
           times.

           Default is 16 MiB on all platforms. This should be reasonable for
           all users/operating systems, except on the largest projects. You
           probably do not need to adjust this value.

           Common unit suffixes of k, m, or g are supported.

       core.bigFileThreshold
           Files larger than this size are stored deflated, without attempting
           delta compression. Storing large files without delta compression
           avoids excessive memory usage, at the slight expense of increased
           disk usage.

           Default is 512 MiB on all platforms. This should be reasonable for
           most projects as source code and other text files can still be
           delta compressed, but larger binary media files won't be.

           Common unit suffixes of k, m, or g are supported.

       core.excludesfile
           In addition to .gitignore (per-directory) and .git/info/exclude,
           git looks into this file for patterns of files which are not meant
           to be tracked. "~/" is expanded to the value of $HOME and "~user/"
           to the specified user's home directory. See gitignore(5).

       core.askpass
           Some commands (e.g. svn and http interfaces) that interactively ask
           for a password can be told to use an external program given via the
           value of this variable. Can be overridden by the GIT_ASKPASS
           environment variable. If not set, fall back to the value of the
           SSH_ASKPASS environment variable or, failing that, a simple
           password prompt. The external program shall be given a suitable
           prompt as command line argument and write the password on its
           STDOUT.

       core.attributesfile
           In addition to .gitattributes (per-directory) and
           .git/info/attributes, git looks into this file for attributes (see
           gitattributes(5)). Path expansions are made the same way as for
           core.excludesfile.

       core.editor
           Commands such as commit and tag that lets you edit messages by
           launching an editor uses the value of this variable when it is set,
           and the environment variable GIT_EDITOR is not set. See git-var(1).

       sequence.editor
           Text editor used by git rebase -i for editing the rebase insn file.
           The value is meant to be interpreted by the shell when it is used.
           It can be overridden by the GIT_SEQUENCE_EDITOR environment
           variable. When not configured the default commit message editor is
           used instead.

       core.pager
           The command that git will use to paginate output. Can be overridden
           with the GIT_PAGER environment variable. Note that git sets the
           LESS environment variable to FRSX if it is unset when it runs the
           pager. One can change these settings by setting the LESS variable
           to some other value. Alternately, these settings can be overridden
           on a project or global basis by setting the core.pager option.
           Setting core.pager has no affect on the LESS environment variable
           behaviour above, so if you want to override git's default settings
           this way, you need to be explicit. For example, to disable the S
           option in a backward compatible manner, set core.pager to less
           -+$LESS -FRX. This will be passed to the shell by git, which will
           translate the final command to LESS=FRSX less -+FRSX -FRX.

       core.whitespace
           A comma separated list of common whitespace problems to notice.
           git diff will use color.diff.whitespace to highlight them, and git
           apply --whitespace=error will consider them as errors. You can
           prefix - to disable any of them (e.g.  -trailing-space):

           o    blank-at-eol treats trailing whitespaces at the end of the
               line as an error (enabled by default).

           o    space-before-tab treats a space character that appears
               immediately before a tab character in the initial indent part
               of the line as an error (enabled by default).

           o    indent-with-non-tab treats a line that is indented with 8 or
               more space characters as an error (not enabled by default).

           o    tab-in-indent treats a tab character in the initial indent
               part of the line as an error (not enabled by default).

           o    blank-at-eof treats blank lines added at the end of file as an
               error (enabled by default).

           o    trailing-space is a short-hand to cover both blank-at-eol and
               blank-at-eof.

           o    cr-at-eol treats a carriage-return at the end of line as part
               of the line terminator, i.e. with it, trailing-space does not
               trigger if the character before such a carriage-return is not a
               whitespace (not enabled by default).

           o    tabwidth=<n> tells how many character positions a tab
               occupies; this is relevant for indent-with-non-tab and when git
               fixes tab-in-indent errors. The default tab width is 8. Allowed
               values are 1 to 63.

       core.fsyncobjectfiles
           This boolean will enable fsync() when writing object files.

           This is a total waste of time and effort on a filesystem that
           orders data writes properly, but can be useful for filesystems that
           do not use journalling (traditional UNIX filesystems) or that only
           journal metadata and not file contents (OS X's HFS+, or Linux ext3
           with "data=writeback").

       core.preloadindex
           Enable parallel index preload for operations like git diff

           This can speed up operations like git diff and git status
           especially on filesystems like NFS that have weak caching semantics
           and thus relatively high IO latencies. With this set to true, git
           will do the index comparison to the filesystem data in parallel,
           allowing overlapping IO's.

       core.createObject
           You can set this to link, in which case a hardlink followed by a
           delete of the source are used to make sure that object creation
           will not overwrite existing objects.

           On some file system/operating system combinations, this is
           unreliable. Set this config setting to rename there; However, This
           will remove the check that makes sure that existing object files
           will not get overwritten.

       core.notesRef
           When showing commit messages, also show notes which are stored in
           the given ref. The ref must be fully qualified. If the given ref
           does not exist, it is not an error but means that no notes should
           be printed.

           This setting defaults to "refs/notes/commits", and it can be
           overridden by the GIT_NOTES_REF environment variable. See git-
           notes(1).

       core.sparseCheckout
           Enable "sparse checkout" feature. See section "Sparse checkout" in
           git-read-tree(1) for more information.

       core.abbrev
           Set the length object names are abbreviated to. If unspecified,
           many commands abbreviate to 7 hexdigits, which may not be enough
           for abbreviated object names to stay unique for sufficiently long
           time.

       add.ignore-errors, add.ignoreErrors
           Tells git add to continue adding files when some files cannot be
           added due to indexing errors. Equivalent to the --ignore-errors
           option of git-add(1). Older versions of git accept only
           add.ignore-errors, which does not follow the usual naming
           convention for configuration variables. Newer versions of git honor
           add.ignoreErrors as well.

       alias.*
           Command aliases for the git(1) command wrapper - e.g. after
           defining "alias.last = cat-file commit HEAD", the invocation "git
           last" is equivalent to "git cat-file commit HEAD". To avoid
           confusion and troubles with script usage, aliases that hide
           existing git commands are ignored. Arguments are split by spaces,
           the usual shell quoting and escaping is supported. quote pair and a
           backslash can be used to quote them.

           If the alias expansion is prefixed with an exclamation point, it
           will be treated as a shell command. For example, defining
           "alias.new = !gitk --all --not ORIG_HEAD", the invocation "git new"
           is equivalent to running the shell command "gitk --all --not
           ORIG_HEAD". Note that shell commands will be executed from the
           top-level directory of a repository, which may not necessarily be
           the current directory.  GIT_PREFIX is set as returned by running
           git rev-parse --show-prefix from the original current directory.
           See git-rev-parse(1).

       am.keepcr
           If true, git-am will call git-mailsplit for patches in mbox format
           with parameter --keep-cr. In this case git-mailsplit will not
           remove \r from lines ending with \r\n. Can be overridden by giving
           --no-keep-cr from the command line. See git-am(1), git-
           mailsplit(1).

       apply.ignorewhitespace
           When set to change, tells git apply to ignore changes in
           whitespace, in the same way as the --ignore-space-change option.
           When set to one of: no, none, never, false tells git apply to
           respect all whitespace differences. See git-apply(1).

       apply.whitespace
           Tells git apply how to handle whitespaces, in the same way as the
           --whitespace option. See git-apply(1).

       branch.autosetupmerge
           Tells git branch and git checkout to set up new branches so that
           git-pull(1) will appropriately merge from the starting point
           branch. Note that even if this option is not set, this behavior can
           be chosen per-branch using the --track and --no-track options. The
           valid settings are: false -- no automatic setup is done; true --
           automatic setup is done when the starting point is a
           remote-tracking branch; always --  automatic setup is done when the
           starting point is either a local branch or remote-tracking branch.
           This option defaults to true.

       branch.autosetuprebase
           When a new branch is created with git branch or git checkout that
           tracks another branch, this variable tells git to set up pull to
           rebase instead of merge (see "branch.<name>.rebase"). When never,
           rebase is never automatically set to true. When local, rebase is
           set to true for tracked branches of other local branches. When
           remote, rebase is set to true for tracked branches of
           remote-tracking branches. When always, rebase will be set to true
           for all tracking branches. See "branch.autosetupmerge" for details
           on how to set up a branch to track another branch. This option
           defaults to never.

       branch.<name>.remote
           When in branch <name>, it tells git fetch and git push which remote
           to fetch from/push to. It defaults to origin if no remote is
           configured.  origin is also used if you are not on any branch.

       branch.<name>.merge
           Defines, together with branch.<name>.remote, the upstream branch
           for the given branch. It tells git fetch/git pull/git rebase which
           branch to merge and can also affect git push (see push.default).
           When in branch <name>, it tells git fetch the default refspec to be
           marked for merging in FETCH_HEAD. The value is handled like the
           remote part of a refspec, and must match a ref which is fetched
           from the remote given by "branch.<name>.remote". The merge
           information is used by git pull (which at first calls git fetch) to
           lookup the default branch for merging. Without this option, git
           pull defaults to merge the first refspec fetched. Specify multiple
           values to get an octopus merge. If you wish to setup git pull so
           that it merges into <name> from another branch in the local
           repository, you can point branch.<name>.merge to the desired
           branch, and use the special setting .  (a period) for
           branch.<name>.remote.

       branch.<name>.mergeoptions
           Sets default options for merging into branch <name>. The syntax and
           supported options are the same as those of git-merge(1), but option
           values containing whitespace characters are currently not
           supported.

       branch.<name>.rebase
           When true, rebase the branch <name> on top of the fetched branch,
           instead of merging the default branch from the default remote when
           "git pull" is run. See "pull.rebase" for doing this in a non
           branch-specific manner.

           NOTE: this is a possibly dangerous operation; do not use it unless
           you understand the implications (see git-rebase(1) for details).

       browser.<tool>.cmd
           Specify the command to invoke the specified browser. The specified
           command is evaluated in shell with the URLs passed as arguments.
           (See git-web--browse(1).)

       browser.<tool>.path
           Override the path for the given tool that may be used to browse
           HTML help (see -w option in git-help(1)) or a working repository in
           gitweb (see git-instaweb(1)).

       clean.requireForce
           A boolean to make git-clean do nothing unless given -f or -n.
           Defaults to true.

       color.branch
           A boolean to enable/disable color in the output of git-branch(1).
           May be set to always, false (or never) or auto (or true), in which
           case colors are used only when the output is to a terminal.
           Defaults to false.

       color.branch.<slot>
           Use customized color for branch coloration.  <slot> is one of
           current (the current branch), local (a local branch), remote (a
           remote-tracking branch in refs/remotes/), plain (other refs).

           The value for these configuration variables is a list of colors (at
           most two) and attributes (at most one), separated by spaces. The
           colors accepted are normal, black, red, green, yellow, blue,
           magenta, cyan and white; the attributes are bold, dim, ul, blink
           and reverse. The first color given is the foreground; the second is
           the background. The position of the attribute, if any, doesn't
           matter.

       color.diff
           Whether to use ANSI escape sequences to add color to patches. If
           this is set to always, git-diff(1), git-log(1), and git-show(1)
           will use color for all patches. If it is set to true or auto, those
           commands will only use color when output is to the terminal.
           Defaults to false.

           This does not affect git-format-patch(1) nor the git-diff-*
           plumbing commands. Can be overridden on the command line with the
           --color[=<when>] option.

       color.diff.<slot>
           Use customized color for diff colorization.  <slot> specifies which
           part of the patch to use the specified color, and is one of plain
           (context text), meta (metainformation), frag (hunk header), func
           (function in hunk header), old (removed lines), new (added lines),
           commit (commit headers), or whitespace (highlighting whitespace
           errors). The values of these variables may be specified as in
           color.branch.<slot>.

       color.decorate.<slot>
           Use customized color for git log --decorate output.  <slot> is one
           of branch, remoteBranch, tag, stash or HEAD for local branches,
           remote-tracking branches, tags, stash and HEAD, respectively.

       color.grep
           When set to always, always highlight matches. When false (or
           never), never. When set to true or auto, use color only when the
           output is written to the terminal. Defaults to false.

       color.grep.<slot>
           Use customized color for grep colorization.  <slot> specifies which
           part of the line to use the specified color, and is one of

           context
               non-matching text in context lines (when using -A, -B, or -C)

           filename
               filename prefix (when not using -h)

           function
               function name lines (when using -p)

           linenumber
               line number prefix (when using -n)

           match
               matching text

           selected
               non-matching text in selected lines

           separator
               separators between fields on a line (:, -, and =) and between
               hunks (--)

           The values of these variables may be specified as in
           color.branch.<slot>.

       color.interactive
           When set to always, always use colors for interactive prompts and
           displays (such as those used by "git-add --interactive"). When
           false (or never), never. When set to true or auto, use colors only
           when the output is to the terminal. Defaults to false.

       color.interactive.<slot>
           Use customized color for git add --interactive output.  <slot> may
           be prompt, header, help or error, for four distinct types of normal
           output from interactive commands. The values of these variables may
           be specified as in color.branch.<slot>.

       color.pager
           A boolean to enable/disable colored output when the pager is in use
           (default is true).

       color.showbranch
           A boolean to enable/disable color in the output of git-show-
           branch(1). May be set to always, false (or never) or auto (or
           true), in which case colors are used only when the output is to a
           terminal. Defaults to false.

       color.status
           A boolean to enable/disable color in the output of git-status(1).
           May be set to always, false (or never) or auto (or true), in which
           case colors are used only when the output is to a terminal.
           Defaults to false.

       color.status.<slot>
           Use customized color for status colorization.  <slot> is one of
           header (the header text of the status message), added or updated
           (files which are added but not committed), changed (files which are
           changed but not added in the index), untracked (files which are not
           tracked by git), branch (the current branch), or nobranch (the
           color the no branch warning is shown in, defaulting to red). The
           values of these variables may be specified as in
           color.branch.<slot>.

       color.ui
           This variable determines the default value for variables such as
           color.diff and color.grep that control the use of color per command
           family. Its scope will expand as more commands learn configuration
           to set a default for the --color option. Set it to always if you
           want all output not intended for machine consumption to use color,
           to true or auto if you want such output to use color when written
           to the terminal, or to false or never if you prefer git commands
           not to use color unless enabled explicitly with some other
           configuration or the --color option.

       commit.status
           A boolean to enable/disable inclusion of status information in the
           commit message template when using an editor to prepare the commit
           message. Defaults to true.

       commit.template
           Specify a file to use as the template for new commit messages. "~/"
           is expanded to the value of $HOME and "~user/" to the specified
           user's home directory.

       credential.helper
           Specify an external helper to be called when a username or password
           credential is needed; the helper may consult external storage to
           avoid prompting the user for the credentials. See gitcredentials(7)
           for details.

       credential.useHttpPath
           When acquiring credentials, consider the "path" component of an
           http or https URL to be important. Defaults to false. See
           gitcredentials(7) for more information.

       credential.username
           If no username is set for a network authentication, use this
           username by default. See credential.<context>.* below, and
           gitcredentials(7).

       credential.<url>.*
           Any of the credential.* options above can be applied selectively to
           some credentials. For example
           "credential.https://example.com.username" would set the default
           username only for https connections to example.com. See
           gitcredentials(7) for details on how URLs are matched.

       diff.autorefreshindex
           When using git diff to compare with work tree files, do not
           consider stat-only change as changed. Instead, silently run git
           update-index --refresh to update the cached stat information for
           paths whose contents in the work tree match the contents in the
           index. This option defaults to true. Note that this affects only
           git diff Porcelain, and not lower level diff commands such as git
           diff-files.

       diff.dirstat
           A comma separated list of --dirstat parameters specifying the
           default behavior of the --dirstat option to git-diff(1)` and
           friends. The defaults can be overridden on the command line (using
           --dirstat=<param1,param2,...>). The fallback defaults (when not
           changed by diff.dirstat) are changes,noncumulative,3. The following
           parameters are available:

           changes
               Compute the dirstat numbers by counting the lines that have
               been removed from the source, or added to the destination. This
               ignores the amount of pure code movements within a file. In
               other words, rearranging lines in a file is not counted as much
               as other changes. This is the default behavior when no
               parameter is given.

           lines
               Compute the dirstat numbers by doing the regular line-based
               diff analysis, and summing the removed/added line counts. (For
               binary files, count 64-byte chunks instead, since binary files
               have no natural concept of lines). This is a more expensive
               --dirstat behavior than the changes behavior, but it does count
               rearranged lines within a file as much as other changes. The
               resulting output is consistent with what you get from the other
               --*stat options.

           files
               Compute the dirstat numbers by counting the number of files
               changed. Each changed file counts equally in the dirstat
               analysis. This is the computationally cheapest --dirstat
               behavior, since it does not have to look at the file contents
               at all.

           cumulative
               Count changes in a child directory for the parent directory as
               well. Note that when using cumulative, the sum of the
               percentages reported may exceed 100%. The default
               (non-cumulative) behavior can be specified with the
               noncumulative parameter.

           <limit>
               An integer parameter specifies a cut-off percent (3% by
               default). Directories contributing less than this percentage of
               the changes are not shown in the output.

           Example: The following will count changed files, while ignoring
           directories with less than 10% of the total amount of changed
           files, and accumulating child directory counts in the parent
           directories: files,10,cumulative.

       diff.external
           If this config variable is set, diff generation is not performed
           using the internal diff machinery, but using the given command. Can
           be overridden with the 'GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF' environment variable.
           The command is called with parameters as described under "git
           Diffs" in git(1). Note: if you want to use an external diff program
           only on a subset of your files, you might want to use
           gitattributes(5) instead.

       diff.ignoreSubmodules
           Sets the default value of --ignore-submodules. Note that this
           affects only git diff Porcelain, and not lower level diff commands
           such as git diff-files.  git checkout also honors this setting when
           reporting uncommitted changes.

       diff.mnemonicprefix
           If set, git diff uses a prefix pair that is different from the
           standard "a/" and "b/" depending on what is being compared. When
           this configuration is in effect, reverse diff output also swaps the
           order of the prefixes:

           git diff
               compares the (i)ndex and the (w)ork tree;

           git diff HEAD
               compares a (c)ommit and the (w)ork tree;

           git diff --cached
               compares a (c)ommit and the (i)ndex;

           git diff HEAD:file1 file2
               compares an (o)bject and a (w)ork tree entity;

           git diff --no-index a b
               compares two non-git things (1) and (2).

       diff.noprefix
           If set, git diff does not show any source or destination prefix.

       diff.renameLimit
           The number of files to consider when performing the copy/rename
           detection; equivalent to the git diff option -l.

       diff.renames
           Tells git to detect renames. If set to any boolean value, it will
           enable basic rename detection. If set to "copies" or "copy", it
           will detect copies, as well.

       diff.suppressBlankEmpty
           A boolean to inhibit the standard behavior of printing a space
           before each empty output line. Defaults to false.

       diff.<driver>.command
           The custom diff driver command. See gitattributes(5) for details.

       diff.<driver>.xfuncname
           The regular expression that the diff driver should use to recognize
           the hunk header. A built-in pattern may also be used. See
           gitattributes(5) for details.

       diff.<driver>.binary
           Set this option to true to make the diff driver treat files as
           binary. See gitattributes(5) for details.

       diff.<driver>.textconv
           The command that the diff driver should call to generate the
           text-converted version of a file. The result of the conversion is
           used to generate a human-readable diff. See gitattributes(5) for
           details.

       diff.<driver>.wordregex
           The regular expression that the diff driver should use to split
           words in a line. See gitattributes(5) for details.

       diff.<driver>.cachetextconv
           Set this option to true to make the diff driver cache the text
           conversion outputs. See gitattributes(5) for details.

       diff.tool
           The diff tool to be used by git-difftool(1). This option overrides
           merge.tool, and has the same valid built-in values as merge.tool
           minus "tortoisemerge" and plus "kompare". Any other value is
           treated as a custom diff tool, and there must be a corresponding
           difftool.<tool>.cmd option.

       difftool.<tool>.path
           Override the path for the given tool. This is useful in case your
           tool is not in the PATH.

       difftool.<tool>.cmd
           Specify the command to invoke the specified diff tool. The
           specified command is evaluated in shell with the following
           variables available: LOCAL is set to the name of the temporary file
           containing the contents of the diff pre-image and REMOTE is set to
           the name of the temporary file containing the contents of the diff
           post-image.

       difftool.prompt
           Prompt before each invocation of the diff tool.

       diff.wordRegex
           A POSIX Extended Regular Expression used to determine what is a
           "word" when performing word-by-word difference calculations.
           Character sequences that match the regular expression are "words",
           all other characters are ignorable whitespace.

       fetch.recurseSubmodules
           This option can be either set to a boolean value or to on-demand.
           Setting it to a boolean changes the behavior of fetch and pull to
           unconditionally recurse into submodules when set to true or to not
           recurse at all when set to false. When set to on-demand (the
           default value), fetch and pull will only recurse into a populated
           submodule when its superproject retrieves a commit that updates the
           submodule's reference.

       fetch.fsckObjects
           If it is set to true, git-fetch-pack will check all fetched
           objects. It will abort in the case of a malformed object or a
           broken link. The result of an abort are only dangling objects.
           Defaults to false. If not set, the value of transfer.fsckObjects is
           used instead.

       fetch.unpackLimit
           If the number of objects fetched over the git native transfer is
           below this limit, then the objects will be unpacked into loose
           object files. However if the number of received objects equals or
           exceeds this limit then the received pack will be stored as a pack,
           after adding any missing delta bases. Storing the pack from a push
           can make the push operation complete faster, especially on slow
           filesystems. If not set, the value of transfer.unpackLimit is used
           instead.

       format.attach
           Enable multipart/mixed attachments as the default for format-patch.
           The value can also be a double quoted string which will enable
           attachments as the default and set the value as the boundary. See
           the --attach option in git-format-patch(1).

       format.numbered
           A boolean which can enable or disable sequence numbers in patch
           subjects. It defaults to "auto" which enables it only if there is
           more than one patch. It can be enabled or disabled for all messages
           by setting it to "true" or "false". See --numbered option in git-
           format-patch(1).

       format.headers
           Additional email headers to include in a patch to be submitted by
           mail. See git-format-patch(1).

       format.to, format.cc
           Additional recipients to include in a patch to be submitted by
           mail. See the --to and --cc options in git-format-patch(1).

       format.subjectprefix
           The default for format-patch is to output files with the [PATCH]
           subject prefix. Use this variable to change that prefix.

       format.signature
           The default for format-patch is to output a signature containing
           the git version number. Use this variable to change that default.
           Set this variable to the empty string ("") to suppress signature
           generation.

       format.suffix
           The default for format-patch is to output files with the suffix
           .patch. Use this variable to change that suffix (make sure to
           include the dot if you want it).

       format.pretty
           The default pretty format for log/show/whatchanged command, See
           git-log(1), git-show(1), git-whatchanged(1).

       format.thread
           The default threading style for git format-patch. Can be a boolean
           value, or shallow or deep.  shallow threading makes every mail a
           reply to the head of the series, where the head is chosen from the
           cover letter, the --in-reply-to, and the first patch mail, in this
           order.  deep threading makes every mail a reply to the previous
           one. A true boolean value is the same as shallow, and a false value
           disables threading.

       format.signoff
           A boolean value which lets you enable the -s/--signoff option of
           format-patch by default.  Note: Adding the Signed-off-by: line to a
           patch should be a conscious act and means that you certify you have
           the rights to submit this work under the same open source license.
           Please see the SubmittingPatches document for further discussion.

       filter.<driver>.clean
           The command which is used to convert the content of a worktree file
           to a blob upon checkin. See gitattributes(5) for details.

       filter.<driver>.smudge
           The command which is used to convert the content of a blob object
           to a worktree file upon checkout. See gitattributes(5) for details.

       gc.aggressiveWindow
           The window size parameter used in the delta compression algorithm
           used by git gc --aggressive. This defaults to 250.

       gc.auto
           When there are approximately more than this many loose objects in
           the repository, git gc --auto will pack them. Some Porcelain
           commands use this command to perform a light-weight garbage
           collection from time to time. The default value is 6700. Setting
           this to 0 disables it.

       gc.autopacklimit
           When there are more than this many packs that are not marked with
           *.keep file in the repository, git gc --auto consolidates them into
           one larger pack. The default value is 50. Setting this to 0
           disables it.

       gc.packrefs
           Running git pack-refs in a repository renders it unclonable by Git
           versions prior to 1.5.1.2 over dumb transports such as HTTP. This
           variable determines whether git gc runs git pack-refs. This can be
           set to notbare to enable it within all non-bare repos or it can be
           set to a boolean value. The default is true.

       gc.pruneexpire
           When git gc is run, it will call prune --expire 2.weeks.ago.
           Override the grace period with this config variable. The value
           "now" may be used to disable this grace period and always prune
           unreachable objects immediately.

       gc.reflogexpire, gc.<pattern>.reflogexpire

           git reflog expire removes reflog entries older than this time;
           defaults to 90 days. With "<pattern>" (e.g. "refs/stash") in the
           middle the setting applies only to the refs that match the
           <pattern>.

       gc.reflogexpireunreachable, gc.<ref>.reflogexpireunreachable

           git reflog expire removes reflog entries older than this time and
           are not reachable from the current tip; defaults to 30 days. With
           "<pattern>" (e.g. "refs/stash") in the middle, the setting applies
           only to the refs that match the <pattern>.

       gc.rerereresolved
           Records of conflicted merge you resolved earlier are kept for this
           many days when git rerere gc is run. The default is 60 days. See
           git-rerere(1).

       gc.rerereunresolved
           Records of conflicted merge you have not resolved are kept for this
           many days when git rerere gc is run. The default is 15 days. See
           git-rerere(1).

       gitcvs.commitmsgannotation
           Append this string to each commit message. Set to empty string to
           disable this feature. Defaults to "via git-CVS emulator".

       gitcvs.enabled
           Whether the CVS server interface is enabled for this repository.
           See git-cvsserver(1).

       gitcvs.logfile
           Path to a log file where the CVS server interface well... logs
           various stuff. See git-cvsserver(1).

       gitcvs.usecrlfattr
           If true, the server will look up the end-of-line conversion
           attributes for files to determine the -k modes to use. If the
           attributes force git to treat a file as text, the -k mode will be
           left blank so CVS clients will treat it as text. If they suppress
           text conversion, the file will be set with -kb mode, which
           suppresses any newline munging the client might otherwise do. If
           the attributes do not allow the file type to be determined, then
           gitcvs.allbinary is used. See gitattributes(5).

       gitcvs.allbinary
           This is used if gitcvs.usecrlfattr does not resolve the correct -kb
           mode to use. If true, all unresolved files are sent to the client
           in mode -kb. This causes the client to treat them as binary files,
           which suppresses any newline munging it otherwise might do.
           Alternatively, if it is set to "guess", then the contents of the
           file are examined to decide if it is binary, similar to
           core.autocrlf.

       gitcvs.dbname
           Database used by git-cvsserver to cache revision information
           derived from the git repository. The exact meaning depends on the
           used database driver, for SQLite (which is the default driver) this
           is a filename. Supports variable substitution (see git-cvsserver(1)
           for details). May not contain semicolons (;). Default:
           %Ggitcvs.%m.sqlite

       gitcvs.dbdriver
           Used Perl DBI driver. You can specify any available driver for this
           here, but it might not work. git-cvsserver is tested with
           DBD::SQLite, reported to work with DBD::Pg, and reported not to
           work with DBD::mysql. Experimental feature. May not contain double
           colons (:). Default: SQLite. See git-cvsserver(1).

       gitcvs.dbuser, gitcvs.dbpass
           Database user and password. Only useful if setting gitcvs.dbdriver,
           since SQLite has no concept of database users and/or passwords.
           gitcvs.dbuser supports variable substitution (see git-cvsserver(1)
           for details).

       gitcvs.dbTableNamePrefix
           Database table name prefix. Prepended to the names of any database
           tables used, allowing a single database to be used for several
           repositories. Supports variable substitution (see git-cvsserver(1)
           for details). Any non-alphabetic characters will be replaced with
           underscores.

       All gitcvs variables except for gitcvs.usecrlfattr and gitcvs.allbinary
       can also be specified as gitcvs.<access_method>.<varname> (where
       access_method is one of "ext" and "pserver") to make them apply only
       for the given access method.

       gitweb.category, gitweb.description, gitweb.owner, gitweb.url
           See gitweb(1) for description.

       gitweb.avatar, gitweb.blame, gitweb.grep, gitweb.highlight,
       gitweb.patches, gitweb.pickaxe, gitweb.remote_heads, gitweb.showsizes,
       gitweb.snapshot
           See gitweb.conf(5) for description.

       grep.lineNumber
           If set to true, enable -n option by default.

       grep.extendedRegexp
           If set to true, enable --extended-regexp option by default.

       gpg.program
           Use this custom program instead of "gpg" found on $PATH when making
           or verifying a PGP signature. The program must support the same
           command line interface as GPG, namely, to verify a detached
           signature, "gpg --verify $file - <$signature" is run, and the
           program is expected to signal a good signature by exiting with code
           0, and to generate an ascii-armored detached signature, the
           standard input of "gpg -bsau $key" is fed with the contents to be
           signed, and the program is expected to send the result to its
           standard output.

       gui.commitmsgwidth
           Defines how wide the commit message window is in the git-gui(1).
           "75" is the default.

       gui.diffcontext
           Specifies how many context lines should be used in calls to diff
           made by the git-gui(1). The default is "5".

       gui.encoding
           Specifies the default encoding to use for displaying of file
           contents in git-gui(1) and gitk(1). It can be overridden by setting
           the encoding attribute for relevant files (see gitattributes(5)).
           If this option is not set, the tools default to the locale
           encoding.

       gui.matchtrackingbranch
           Determines if new branches created with git-gui(1) should default
           to tracking remote branches with matching names or not. Default:
           "false".

       gui.newbranchtemplate
           Is used as suggested name when creating new branches using the git-
           gui(1).

       gui.pruneduringfetch
           "true" if git-gui(1) should prune remote-tracking branches when
           performing a fetch. The default value is "false".

       gui.trustmtime
           Determines if git-gui(1) should trust the file modification
           timestamp or not. By default the timestamps are not trusted.

       gui.spellingdictionary
           Specifies the dictionary used for spell checking commit messages in
           the git-gui(1). When set to "none" spell checking is turned off.

       gui.fastcopyblame
           If true, git gui blame uses -C instead of -C -C for original
           location detection. It makes blame significantly faster on huge
           repositories at the expense of less thorough copy detection.

       gui.copyblamethreshold
           Specifies the threshold to use in git gui blame original location
           detection, measured in alphanumeric characters. See the git-
           blame(1) manual for more information on copy detection.

       gui.blamehistoryctx
           Specifies the radius of history context in days to show in gitk(1)
           for the selected commit, when the Show History Context menu item is
           invoked from git gui blame. If this variable is set to zero, the
           whole history is shown.

       guitool.<name>.cmd
           Specifies the shell command line to execute when the corresponding
           item of the git-gui(1) Tools menu is invoked. This option is
           mandatory for every tool. The command is executed from the root of
           the working directory, and in the environment it receives the name
           of the tool as GIT_GUITOOL, the name of the currently selected file
           as FILENAME, and the name of the current branch as CUR_BRANCH (if
           the head is detached, CUR_BRANCH is empty).

       guitool.<name>.needsfile
           Run the tool only if a diff is selected in the GUI. It guarantees
           that FILENAME is not empty.

       guitool.<name>.noconsole
           Run the command silently, without creating a window to display its
           output.

       guitool.<name>.norescan
           Don't rescan the working directory for changes after the tool
           finishes execution.

       guitool.<name>.confirm
           Show a confirmation dialog before actually running the tool.

       guitool.<name>.argprompt
           Request a string argument from the user, and pass it to the tool
           through the ARGS environment variable. Since requesting an argument
           implies confirmation, the confirm option has no effect if this is
           enabled. If the option is set to true, yes, or 1, the dialog uses a
           built-in generic prompt; otherwise the exact value of the variable
           is used.

       guitool.<name>.revprompt
           Request a single valid revision from the user, and set the REVISION
           environment variable. In other aspects this option is similar to
           argprompt, and can be used together with it.

       guitool.<name>.revunmerged
           Show only unmerged branches in the revprompt subdialog. This is
           useful for tools similar to merge or rebase, but not for things
           like checkout or reset.

       guitool.<name>.title
           Specifies the title to use for the prompt dialog. The default is
           the tool name.

       guitool.<name>.prompt
           Specifies the general prompt string to display at the top of the
           dialog, before subsections for argprompt and revprompt. The default
           value includes the actual command.

       help.browser
           Specify the browser that will be used to display help in the web
           format. See git-help(1).

       help.format
           Override the default help format used by git-help(1). Values man,
           info, web and html are supported.  man is the default.  web and
           html are the same.

       help.autocorrect
           Automatically correct and execute mistyped commands after waiting
           for the given number of deciseconds (0.1 sec). If more than one
           command can be deduced from the entered text, nothing will be
           executed. If the value of this option is negative, the corrected
           command will be executed immediately. If the value is 0 - the
           command will be just shown but not executed. This is the default.

       http.proxy
           Override the HTTP proxy, normally configured using the http_proxy,
           https_proxy, and all_proxy environment variables (see curl(1)).
           This can be overridden on a per-remote basis; see
           remote.<name>.proxy

       http.cookiefile
           File containing previously stored cookie lines which should be used
           in the git http session, if they match the server. The file format
           of the file to read cookies from should be plain HTTP headers or
           the Netscape/Mozilla cookie file format (see curl(1)). NOTE that
           the file specified with http.cookiefile is only used as input. No
           cookies will be stored in the file.

       http.sslVerify
           Whether to verify the SSL certificate when fetching or pushing over
           HTTPS. Can be overridden by the GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY environment
           variable.

       http.sslCert
           File containing the SSL certificate when fetching or pushing over
           HTTPS. Can be overridden by the GIT_SSL_CERT environment variable.

       http.sslKey
           File containing the SSL private key when fetching or pushing over
           HTTPS. Can be overridden by the GIT_SSL_KEY environment variable.

       http.sslCertPasswordProtected
           Enable git's password prompt for the SSL certificate. Otherwise
           OpenSSL will prompt the user, possibly many times, if the
           certificate or private key is encrypted. Can be overridden by the
           GIT_SSL_CERT_PASSWORD_PROTECTED environment variable.

       http.sslCAInfo
           File containing the certificates to verify the peer with when
           fetching or pushing over HTTPS. Can be overridden by the
           GIT_SSL_CAINFO environment variable.

       http.sslCAPath
           Path containing files with the CA certificates to verify the peer
           with when fetching or pushing over HTTPS. Can be overridden by the
           GIT_SSL_CAPATH environment variable.

       http.maxRequests
           How many HTTP requests to launch in parallel. Can be overridden by
           the GIT_HTTP_MAX_REQUESTS environment variable. Default is 5.

       http.minSessions
           The number of curl sessions (counted across slots) to be kept
           across requests. They will not be ended with curl_easy_cleanup()
           until http_cleanup() is invoked. If USE_CURL_MULTI is not defined,
           this value will be capped at 1. Defaults to 1.

       http.postBuffer
           Maximum size in bytes of the buffer used by smart HTTP transports
           when POSTing data to the remote system. For requests larger than
           this buffer size, HTTP/1.1 and Transfer-Encoding: chunked is used
           to avoid creating a massive pack file locally. Default is 1 MiB,
           which is sufficient for most requests.

       http.lowSpeedLimit, http.lowSpeedTime
           If the HTTP transfer speed is less than http.lowSpeedLimit for
           longer than http.lowSpeedTime seconds, the transfer is aborted. Can
           be overridden by the GIT_HTTP_LOW_SPEED_LIMIT and
           GIT_HTTP_LOW_SPEED_TIME environment variables.

       http.noEPSV
           A boolean which disables using of EPSV ftp command by curl. This
           can helpful with some "poor" ftp servers which don't support EPSV
           mode. Can be overridden by the GIT_CURL_FTP_NO_EPSV environment
           variable. Default is false (curl will use EPSV).

       http.useragent
           The HTTP USER_AGENT string presented to an HTTP server. The default
           value represents the version of the client git such as git/1.7.1.
           This option allows you to override this value to a more common
           value such as Mozilla/4.0. This may be necessary, for instance, if
           connecting through a firewall that restricts HTTP connections to a
           set of common USER_AGENT strings (but not including those like
           git/1.7.1). Can be overridden by the GIT_HTTP_USER_AGENT
           environment variable.

       i18n.commitEncoding
           Character encoding the commit messages are stored in; git itself
           does not care per se, but this information is necessary e.g. when
           importing commits from emails or in the gitk graphical history
           browser (and possibly at other places in the future or in other
           porcelains). See e.g.  git-mailinfo(1). Defaults to utf-8.

       i18n.logOutputEncoding
           Character encoding the commit messages are converted to when
           running git log and friends.

       imap
           The configuration variables in the imap section are described in
           git-imap-send(1).

       init.templatedir
           Specify the directory from which templates will be copied. (See the
           "TEMPLATE DIRECTORY" section of git-init(1).)

       instaweb.browser
           Specify the program that will be used to browse your working
           repository in gitweb. See git-instaweb(1).

       instaweb.httpd
           The HTTP daemon command-line to start gitweb on your working
           repository. See git-instaweb(1).

       instaweb.local
           If true the web server started by git-instaweb(1) will be bound to
           the local IP (127.0.0.1).

       instaweb.modulepath
           The default module path for git-instaweb(1) to use instead of
           /usr/lib/apache2/modules. Only used if httpd is Apache.

       instaweb.port
           The port number to bind the gitweb httpd to. See git-instaweb(1).

       interactive.singlekey
           In interactive commands, allow the user to provide one-letter input
           with a single key (i.e., without hitting enter). Currently this is
           used by the --patch mode of git-add(1), git-checkout(1), git-
           commit(1), git-reset(1), and git-stash(1). Note that this setting
           is silently ignored if portable keystroke input is not available.

       log.abbrevCommit
           If true, makes git-log(1), git-show(1), and git-whatchanged(1)
           assume --abbrev-commit. You may override this option with
           --no-abbrev-commit.

       log.date
           Set the default date-time mode for the log command. Setting a value
           for log.date is similar to using git log's --date option. Possible
           values are relative, local, default, iso, rfc, and short; see git-
           log(1) for details.

       log.decorate
           Print out the ref names of any commits that are shown by the log
           command. If short is specified, the ref name prefixes refs/heads/,
           refs/tags/ and refs/remotes/ will not be printed. If full is
           specified, the full ref name (including prefix) will be printed.
           This is the same as the log commands --decorate option.

       log.showroot
           If true, the initial commit will be shown as a big creation event.
           This is equivalent to a diff against an empty tree. Tools like git-
           log(1) or git-whatchanged(1), which normally hide the root commit
           will now show it. True by default.

       mailmap.file
           The location of an augmenting mailmap file. The default mailmap,
           located in the root of the repository, is loaded first, then the
           mailmap file pointed to by this variable. The location of the
           mailmap file may be in a repository subdirectory, or somewhere
           outside of the repository itself. See git-shortlog(1) and git-
           blame(1).

       man.viewer
           Specify the programs that may be used to display help in the man
           format. See git-help(1).

       man.<tool>.cmd
           Specify the command to invoke the specified man viewer. The
           specified command is evaluated in shell with the man page passed as
           argument. (See git-help(1).)

       man.<tool>.path
           Override the path for the given tool that may be used to display
           help in the man format. See git-help(1).

       merge.conflictstyle
           Specify the style in which conflicted hunks are written out to
           working tree files upon merge. The default is "merge", which shows
           a <<<<<<< conflict marker, changes made by one side, a =======
           marker, changes made by the other side, and then a >>>>>>> marker.
           An alternate style, "diff3", adds a ||||||| marker and the original
           text before the ======= marker.

       merge.defaultToUpstream
           If merge is called without any commit argument, merge the upstream
           branches configured for the current branch by using their last
           observed values stored in their remote tracking branches. The
           values of the branch.<current branch>.merge that name the branches
           at the remote named by branch.<current branch>.remote are
           consulted, and then they are mapped via remote.<remote>.fetch to
           their corresponding remote tracking branches, and the tips of these
           tracking branches are merged.

       merge.ff
           By default, git does not create an extra merge commit when merging
           a commit that is a descendant of the current commit. Instead, the
           tip of the current branch is fast-forwarded. When set to false,
           this variable tells git to create an extra merge commit in such a
           case (equivalent to giving the --no-ff option from the command
           line). When set to only, only such fast-forward merges are allowed
           (equivalent to giving the --ff-only option from the command line).

       merge.log
           In addition to branch names, populate the log message with at most
           the specified number of one-line descriptions from the actual
           commits that are being merged. Defaults to false, and true is a
           synonym for 20.

       merge.renameLimit
           The number of files to consider when performing rename detection
           during a merge; if not specified, defaults to the value of
           diff.renameLimit.

       merge.renormalize
           Tell git that canonical representation of files in the repository
           has changed over time (e.g. earlier commits record text files with
           CRLF line endings, but recent ones use LF line endings). In such a
           repository, git can convert the data recorded in commits to a
           canonical form before performing a merge to reduce unnecessary
           conflicts. For more information, see section "Merging branches with
           differing checkin/checkout attributes" in gitattributes(5).

       merge.stat
           Whether to print the diffstat between ORIG_HEAD and the merge
           result at the end of the merge. True by default.

       merge.tool
           Controls which merge resolution program is used by git-
           mergetool(1). Valid built-in values are: "araxis", "bc3",
           "diffuse", "ecmerge", "emerge", "gvimdiff", "kdiff3", "meld",
           "opendiff", "p4merge", "tkdiff", "tortoisemerge", "vimdiff" and
           "xxdiff". Any other value is treated is custom merge tool and there
           must be a corresponding mergetool.<tool>.cmd option.

       merge.verbosity
           Controls the amount of output shown by the recursive merge
           strategy. Level 0 outputs nothing except a final error message if
           conflicts were detected. Level 1 outputs only conflicts, 2 outputs
           conflicts and file changes. Level 5 and above outputs debugging
           information. The default is level 2. Can be overridden by the
           GIT_MERGE_VERBOSITY environment variable.

       merge.<driver>.name
           Defines a human-readable name for a custom low-level merge driver.
           See gitattributes(5) for details.

       merge.<driver>.driver
           Defines the command that implements a custom low-level merge
           driver. See gitattributes(5) for details.

       merge.<driver>.recursive
           Names a low-level merge driver to be used when performing an
           internal merge between common ancestors. See gitattributes(5) for
           details.

       mergetool.<tool>.path
           Override the path for the given tool. This is useful in case your
           tool is not in the PATH.

       mergetool.<tool>.cmd
           Specify the command to invoke the specified merge tool. The
           specified command is evaluated in shell with the following
           variables available: BASE is the name of a temporary file
           containing the common base of the files to be merged, if available;
           LOCAL is the name of a temporary file containing the contents of
           the file on the current branch; REMOTE is the name of a temporary
           file containing the contents of the file from the branch being
           merged; MERGED contains the name of the file to which the merge
           tool should write the results of a successful merge.

       mergetool.<tool>.trustExitCode
           For a custom merge command, specify whether the exit code of the
           merge command can be used to determine whether the merge was
           successful. If this is not set to true then the merge target file
           timestamp is checked and the merge assumed to have been successful
           if the file has been updated, otherwise the user is prompted to
           indicate the success of the merge.

       mergetool.keepBackup
           After performing a merge, the original file with conflict markers
           can be saved as a file with a .orig extension. If this variable is
           set to false then this file is not preserved. Defaults to true
           (i.e. keep the backup files).

       mergetool.keepTemporaries
           When invoking a custom merge tool, git uses a set of temporary
           files to pass to the tool. If the tool returns an error and this
           variable is set to true, then these temporary files will be
           preserved, otherwise they will be removed after the tool has
           exited. Defaults to false.

       mergetool.prompt
           Prompt before each invocation of the merge resolution program.

       notes.displayRef
           The (fully qualified) refname from which to show notes when showing
           commit messages. The value of this variable can be set to a glob,
           in which case notes from all matching refs will be shown. You may
           also specify this configuration variable several times. A warning
           will be issued for refs that do not exist, but a glob that does not
           match any refs is silently ignored.

           This setting can be overridden with the GIT_NOTES_DISPLAY_REF
           environment variable, which must be a colon separated list of refs
           or globs.

           The effective value of "core.notesRef" (possibly overridden by
           GIT_NOTES_REF) is also implicitly added to the list of refs to be
           displayed.

       notes.rewrite.<command>
           When rewriting commits with <command> (currently amend or rebase)
           and this variable is set to true, git automatically copies your
           notes from the original to the rewritten commit. Defaults to true,
           but see "notes.rewriteRef" below.

       notes.rewriteMode
           When copying notes during a rewrite (see the
           "notes.rewrite.<command>" option), determines what to do if the
           target commit already has a note. Must be one of overwrite,
           concatenate, or ignore. Defaults to concatenate.

           This setting can be overridden with the GIT_NOTES_REWRITE_MODE
           environment variable.

       notes.rewriteRef
           When copying notes during a rewrite, specifies the (fully
           qualified) ref whose notes should be copied. The ref may be a glob,
           in which case notes in all matching refs will be copied. You may
           also specify this configuration several times.

           Does not have a default value; you must configure this variable to
           enable note rewriting. Set it to refs/notes/commits to enable
           rewriting for the default commit notes.

           This setting can be overridden with the GIT_NOTES_REWRITE_REF
           environment variable, which must be a colon separated list of refs
           or globs.

       pack.window
           The size of the window used by git-pack-objects(1) when no window
           size is given on the command line. Defaults to 10.

       pack.depth
           The maximum delta depth used by git-pack-objects(1) when no maximum
           depth is given on the command line. Defaults to 50.

       pack.windowMemory
           The window memory size limit used by git-pack-objects(1) when no
           limit is given on the command line. The value can be suffixed with
           "k", "m", or "g". Defaults to 0, meaning no limit.

       pack.compression
           An integer -1..9, indicating the compression level for objects in a
           pack file. -1 is the zlib default. 0 means no compression, and 1..9
           are various speed/size tradeoffs, 9 being slowest. If not set,
           defaults to core.compression. If that is not set, defaults to -1,
           the zlib default, which is "a default compromise between speed and
           compression (currently equivalent to level 6)."

           Note that changing the compression level will not automatically
           recompress all existing objects. You can force recompression by
           passing the -F option to git-repack(1).

       pack.deltaCacheSize
           The maximum memory in bytes used for caching deltas in git-pack-
           objects(1) before writing them out to a pack. This cache is used to
           speed up the writing object phase by not having to recompute the
           final delta result once the best match for all objects is found.
           Repacking large repositories on machines which are tight with
           memory might be badly impacted by this though, especially if this
           cache pushes the system into swapping. A value of 0 means no limit.
           The smallest size of 1 byte may be used to virtually disable this
           cache. Defaults to 256 MiB.

       pack.deltaCacheLimit
           The maximum size of a delta, that is cached in git-pack-objects(1).
           This cache is used to speed up the writing object phase by not
           having to recompute the final delta result once the best match for
           all objects is found. Defaults to 1000.

       pack.threads
           Specifies the number of threads to spawn when searching for best
           delta matches. This requires that git-pack-objects(1) be compiled
           with pthreads otherwise this option is ignored with a warning. This
           is meant to reduce packing time on multiprocessor machines. The
           required amount of memory for the delta search window is however
           multiplied by the number of threads. Specifying 0 will cause git to
           auto-detect the number of CPU's and set the number of threads
           accordingly.

       pack.indexVersion
           Specify the default pack index version. Valid values are 1 for
           legacy pack index used by Git versions prior to 1.5.2, and 2 for
           the new pack index with capabilities for packs larger than 4 GB as
           well as proper protection against the repacking of corrupted packs.
           Version 2 is the default. Note that version 2 is enforced and this
           config option ignored whenever the corresponding pack is larger
           than 2 GB.

           If you have an old git that does not understand the version 2 *.idx
           file, cloning or fetching over a non native protocol (e.g. "http"
           and "rsync") that will copy both *.pack file and corresponding
           *.idx file from the other side may give you a repository that
           cannot be accessed with your older version of git. If the *.pack
           file is smaller than 2 GB, however, you can use git-index-pack(1)
           on the *.pack file to regenerate the *.idx file.

       pack.packSizeLimit
           The maximum size of a pack. This setting only affects packing to a
           file when repacking, i.e. the git:// protocol is unaffected. It can
           be overridden by the --max-pack-size option of git-repack(1). The
           minimum size allowed is limited to 1 MiB. The default is unlimited.
           Common unit suffixes of k, m, or g are supported.

       pager.<cmd>
           If the value is boolean, turns on or off pagination of the output
           of a particular git subcommand when writing to a tty. Otherwise,
           turns on pagination for the subcommand using the pager specified by
           the value of pager.<cmd>. If --paginate or --no-pager is specified
           on the command line, it takes precedence over this option. To
           disable pagination for all commands, set core.pager or GIT_PAGER to
           cat.

       pretty.<name>
           Alias for a --pretty= format string, as specified in git-log(1).
           Any aliases defined here can be used just as the built-in pretty
           formats could. For example, running git config pretty.changelog
           "format:* %H %s" would cause the invocation git log
           --pretty=changelog to be equivalent to running git log
           "--pretty=format:* %H %s". Note that an alias with the same name as
           a built-in format will be silently ignored.

       pull.rebase
           When true, rebase branches on top of the fetched branch, instead of
           merging the default branch from the default remote when "git pull"
           is run. See "branch.<name>.rebase" for setting this on a per-branch
           basis.

           NOTE: this is a possibly dangerous operation; do not use it unless
           you understand the implications (see git-rebase(1) for details).

       pull.octopus
           The default merge strategy to use when pulling multiple branches at
           once.

       pull.twohead
           The default merge strategy to use when pulling a single branch.

       push.default
           Defines the action git push should take if no refspec is given on
           the command line, no refspec is configured in the remote, and no
           refspec is implied by any of the options given on the command line.
           Possible values are:

           o    nothing - do not push anything.

           o    matching - push all matching branches. All branches having the
               same name in both ends are considered to be matching. This is
               the default.

           o    upstream - push the current branch to its upstream branch.

           o    tracking - deprecated synonym for upstream.

           o    current - push the current branch to a branch of the same
               name.

       rebase.stat
           Whether to show a diffstat of what changed upstream since the last
           rebase. False by default.

       rebase.autosquash
           If set to true enable --autosquash option by default.

       receive.autogc
           By default, git-receive-pack will run "git-gc --auto" after
           receiving data from git-push and updating refs. You can stop it by
           setting this variable to false.

       receive.fsckObjects
           If it is set to true, git-receive-pack will check all received
           objects. It will abort in the case of a malformed object or a
           broken link. The result of an abort are only dangling objects.
           Defaults to false. If not set, the value of transfer.fsckObjects is
           used instead.

       receive.unpackLimit
           If the number of objects received in a push is below this limit
           then the objects will be unpacked into loose object files. However
           if the number of received objects equals or exceeds this limit then
           the received pack will be stored as a pack, after adding any
           missing delta bases. Storing the pack from a push can make the push
           operation complete faster, especially on slow filesystems. If not
           set, the value of transfer.unpackLimit is used instead.

       receive.denyDeletes
           If set to true, git-receive-pack will deny a ref update that
           deletes the ref. Use this to prevent such a ref deletion via a
           push.

       receive.denyDeleteCurrent
           If set to true, git-receive-pack will deny a ref update that
           deletes the currently checked out branch of a non-bare repository.

       receive.denyCurrentBranch
           If set to true or "refuse", git-receive-pack will deny a ref update
           to the currently checked out branch of a non-bare repository. Such
           a push is potentially dangerous because it brings the HEAD out of
           sync with the index and working tree. If set to "warn", print a
           warning of such a push to stderr, but allow the push to proceed. If
           set to false or "ignore", allow such pushes with no message.
           Defaults to "refuse".

       receive.denyNonFastForwards
           If set to true, git-receive-pack will deny a ref update which is
           not a fast-forward. Use this to prevent such an update via a push,
           even if that push is forced. This configuration variable is set
           when initializing a shared repository.

       receive.updateserverinfo
           If set to true, git-receive-pack will run git-update-server-info
           after receiving data from git-push and updating refs.

       remote.<name>.url
           The URL of a remote repository. See git-fetch(1) or git-push(1).

       remote.<name>.pushurl
           The push URL of a remote repository. See git-push(1).

       remote.<name>.proxy
           For remotes that require curl (http, https and ftp), the URL to the
           proxy to use for that remote. Set to the empty string to disable
           proxying for that remote.

       remote.<name>.fetch
           The default set of "refspec" for git-fetch(1). See git-fetch(1).

       remote.<name>.push
           The default set of "refspec" for git-push(1). See git-push(1).

       remote.<name>.mirror
           If true, pushing to this remote will automatically behave as if the
           --mirror option was given on the command line.

       remote.<name>.skipDefaultUpdate
           If true, this remote will be skipped by default when updating using
           git-fetch(1) or the update subcommand of git-remote(1).

       remote.<name>.skipFetchAll
           If true, this remote will be skipped by default when updating using
           git-fetch(1) or the update subcommand of git-remote(1).

       remote.<name>.receivepack
           The default program to execute on the remote side when pushing. See
           option --receive-pack of git-push(1).

       remote.<name>.uploadpack
           The default program to execute on the remote side when fetching.
           See option --upload-pack of git-fetch-pack(1).

       remote.<name>.tagopt
           Setting this value to --no-tags disables automatic tag following
           when fetching from remote <name>. Setting it to --tags will fetch
           every tag from remote <name>, even if they are not reachable from
           remote branch heads. Passing these flags directly to git-fetch(1)
           can override this setting. See options --tags and --no-tags of git-
           fetch(1).

       remote.<name>.vcs
           Setting this to a value <vcs> will cause git to interact with the
           remote with the git-remote-<vcs> helper.

       remotes.<group>
           The list of remotes which are fetched by "git remote update
           <group>". See git-remote(1).

       repack.usedeltabaseoffset
           By default, git-repack(1) creates packs that use delta-base offset.
           If you need to share your repository with git older than version
           1.4.4, either directly or via a dumb protocol such as http, then
           you need to set this option to "false" and repack. Access from old
           git versions over the native protocol are unaffected by this
           option.

       rerere.autoupdate
           When set to true, git-rerere updates the index with the resulting
           contents after it cleanly resolves conflicts using previously
           recorded resolution. Defaults to false.

       rerere.enabled
           Activate recording of resolved conflicts, so that identical
           conflict hunks can be resolved automatically, should they be
           encountered again. By default, git-rerere(1) is enabled if there is
           an rr-cache directory under the $GIT_DIR, e.g. if "rerere" was
           previously used in the repository.

       sendemail.identity
           A configuration identity. When given, causes values in the
           sendemail.<identity> subsection to take precedence over values in
           the sendemail section. The default identity is the value of
           sendemail.identity.

       sendemail.smtpencryption
           See git-send-email(1) for description. Note that this setting is
           not subject to the identity mechanism.

       sendemail.smtpssl
           Deprecated alias for sendemail.smtpencryption = ssl.

       sendemail.<identity>.*
           Identity-specific versions of the sendemail.*  parameters found
           below, taking precedence over those when the this identity is
           selected, through command-line or sendemail.identity.

       showbranch.default
           The default set of branches for git-show-branch(1). See git-show-
           branch(1).

       status.relativePaths
           By default, git-status(1) shows paths relative to the current
           directory. Setting this variable to false shows paths relative to
           the repository root (this was the default for git prior to v1.5.4).

       status.showUntrackedFiles
           By default, git-status(1) and git-commit(1) show files which are
           not currently tracked by Git. Directories which contain only
           untracked files, are shown with the directory name only. Showing
           untracked files means that Git needs to lstat() all all the files
           in the whole repository, which might be slow on some systems. So,
           this variable controls how the commands displays the untracked
           files. Possible values are:

           o    no - Show no untracked files.

           o    normal - Show untracked files and directories.

           o    all - Show also individual files in untracked directories.

           If this variable is not specified, it defaults to normal. This
           variable can be overridden with the -u|--untracked-files option of
           git-status(1) and git-commit(1).

       status.submodulesummary
           Defaults to false. If this 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)).

       submodule.<name>.path, submodule.<name>.url, submodule.<name>.update
           The path within this project, URL, and the updating strategy for a
           submodule. These variables are initially populated by git submodule
           init; edit them to override the URL and other values found in the
           .gitmodules file. See git-submodule(1) and gitmodules(5) for
           details.

       submodule.<name>.fetchRecurseSubmodules
           This option can be used to control recursive fetching of this
           submodule. It can be overridden by using the
           --[no-]recurse-submodules command line option to "git fetch" and
           "git pull". This setting will override that from in the
           gitmodules(5) file.

       submodule.<name>.ignore
           Defines under what circumstances "git status" and the diff family
           show a submodule as modified. When set to "all", it will never be
           considered modified, "dirty" will ignore all changes to the
           submodules work tree and takes only differences between the HEAD of
           the submodule and the commit recorded in the superproject into
           account. "untracked" will additionally let submodules with modified
           tracked files in their work tree show up. Using "none" (the default
           when this option is not set) also shows submodules that have
           untracked files in their work tree as changed. This setting
           overrides any setting made in .gitmodules for this submodule, both
           settings can be overridden on the command line by using the
           "--ignore-submodules" option.

       tar.umask
           This variable can be used to restrict the permission bits of tar
           archive entries. The default is 0002, which turns off the world
           write bit. The special value "user" indicates that the archiving
           user's umask will be used instead. See umask(2) and git-archive(1).

       transfer.fsckObjects
           When fetch.fsckObjects or receive.fsckObjects are not set, the
           value of this variable is used instead. Defaults to false.

       transfer.unpackLimit
           When fetch.unpackLimit or receive.unpackLimit are not set, the
           value of this variable is used instead. The default value is 100.

       url.<base>.insteadOf
           Any URL that starts with this value will be rewritten to start,
           instead, with <base>. In cases where some site serves a large
           number of repositories, and serves them with multiple access
           methods, and some users need to use different access methods, this
           feature allows people to specify any of the equivalent URLs and
           have git automatically rewrite the URL to the best alternative for
           the particular user, even for a never-before-seen repository on the
           site. When more than one insteadOf strings match a given URL, the
           longest match is used.

       url.<base>.pushInsteadOf
           Any URL that starts with this value will not be pushed to; instead,
           it will be rewritten to start with <base>, and the resulting URL
           will be pushed to. In cases where some site serves a large number
           of repositories, and serves them with multiple access methods, some
           of which do not allow push, this feature allows people to specify a
           pull-only URL and have git automatically use an appropriate URL to
           push, even for a never-before-seen repository on the site. When
           more than one pushInsteadOf strings match a given URL, the longest
           match is used. If a remote has an explicit pushurl, git will ignore
           this setting for that remote.

       user.email
           Your email address to be recorded in any newly created commits. Can
           be overridden by the GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL, GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL, and
           EMAIL environment variables. See git-commit-tree(1).

       user.name
           Your full name to be recorded in any newly created commits. Can be
           overridden by the GIT_AUTHOR_NAME and GIT_COMMITTER_NAME
           environment variables. See git-commit-tree(1).

       user.signingkey
           If git-tag(1) is not selecting the key you want it to automatically
           when creating a signed tag, you can override the default selection
           with this variable. This option is passed unchanged to gpg's
           --local-user parameter, so you may specify a key using any method
           that gpg supports.

       web.browser
           Specify a web browser that may be used by some commands. Currently
           only git-instaweb(1) and git-help(1) may use it.
