Give the output in the long-format. This is the default.
+ In addition to the names of files that have been changed, also
+ show the textual changes that are staged to be committed
+ (i.e., like the output of `git diff --cached`). If `-v` is specified
+ twice, then also show the changes in the working tree that
+ have not yet been staged (i.e., like the output of `git diff`).
Show untracked files.
