Merge branch 'mm/status-without-comment-char'
"git status" now omits the prefix to make its output a comment in a commit log editor, which is not necessary for human consumption. We may want to tighten the output to omit unnecessary trailing blank lines, but that does not have to be in the scope of this series. * mm/status-without-comment-char: t7508: avoid non-portable sed expression status: add missing blank line after list of "other" files tests: don't set status.displayCommentPrefix file-wide status: disable display of '#' comment prefix by default submodule summary: ignore --for-status option wt-status: use argv_array API builtin/stripspace.c: fix broken indentation
