+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':
++
+--
+ pushUpdateRejected::
+ Set this variable to 'false' if you want to disable
+ 'pushNonFFCurrent',
+ 'pushNonFFMatching', 'pushAlreadyExists',
+ 'pushFetchFirst', and 'pushNeedsForce'
+ simultaneously.
+ pushNonFFCurrent::
+ Advice shown when linkgit:git-push[1] fails due to a
+ non-fast-forward update to the current branch.
+ pushNonFFMatching::
+ Advice shown when you ran linkgit:git-push[1] and pushed
+ 'matching refs' explicitly (i.e. you used ':', or
+ specified a refspec that isn't your current branch) and
+ it resulted in a non-fast-forward error.
+ pushAlreadyExists::
+ Shown when linkgit:git-push[1] rejects an update that
+ does not qualify for fast-forwarding (e.g., a tag.)
+ pushFetchFirst::
+ Shown when linkgit:git-push[1] rejects an update that
+ tries to overwrite a remote ref that points at an
+ object we do not have.
+ pushNeedsForce::
+ Shown when linkgit:git-push[1] rejects an update that
+ tries to overwrite a remote ref that points at an
+ object that is not a commit-ish, or make the remote
+ ref point at an object that is not a commit-ish.
+ pushUnqualifiedRefname::
+ Shown when linkgit:git-push[1] gives up trying to
+ guess based on the source and destination refs what
+ remote ref namespace the source belongs in, but where
+ we can still suggest that the user push to either
+ refs/heads/* or refs/tags/* based on the type of the
+ source object.
+ statusHints::
+ Show directions on how to proceed from the current
+ state in the output of linkgit:git-status[1], in
+ the template shown when writing commit messages in
+ linkgit:git-commit[1], and in the help message shown
+ by linkgit:git-checkout[1] when switching branch.
+ statusUoption::
+ Advise to consider using the `-u` option to linkgit:git-status[1]
+ when the command takes more than 2 seconds to enumerate untracked
+ files.
+ commitBeforeMerge::
+ Advice shown when linkgit:git-merge[1] refuses to
+ merge to avoid overwriting local changes.
+ resetQuiet::
+ Advice to consider using the `--quiet` option to linkgit:git-reset[1]
+ when the command takes more than 2 seconds to enumerate unstaged
+ changes after reset.
+ resolveConflict::
+ Advice 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 linkgit:git-checkout[1] to
+ move to the detach HEAD state, to instruct how to create
+ a local branch after the fact.
+ checkoutAmbiguousRemoteBranchName::
+ Advice shown when the argument to
+ linkgit:git-checkout[1] ambiguously resolves to a
+ remote tracking branch on more than one remote in
+ situations where an unambiguous argument would have
+ otherwise caused a remote-tracking branch to be
+ checked out. See the `checkout.defaultRemote`
+ configuration variable for how to set a given remote
+ to used by default in some situations where this
+ advice would be printed.
+ amWorkDir::
+ Advice that shows the location of the patch file when
+ linkgit:git-am[1] fails to apply it.
+ rmHints::
+ In case of failure in the output of linkgit:git-rm[1],
+ show directions on how to proceed from the current state.
+ addEmbeddedRepo::
+ Advice on what to do when you've accidentally added one
+ git repo inside of another.
+ ignoredHook::
+ Advice shown if a hook is ignored because the hook is not
+ set as executable.
+ waitingForEditor::
+ Print a message to the terminal whenever Git is waiting for
+ editor input from the user.
