+status.relativePaths::
+ By default, linkgit: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.short::
+ Set to true to enable --short by default in linkgit:git-status[1].
+ The option --no-short takes precedence over this variable.
+
+status.branch::
+ Set to true to enable --branch by default in linkgit:git-status[1].
+ The option --no-branch takes precedence over this variable.
+
+status.displayCommentPrefix::
+ If set to true, linkgit:git-status[1] will insert a comment
+ prefix before each output line (starting with
+ `core.commentChar`, i.e. `#` by default). This was the
+ behavior of linkgit:git-status[1] in Git 1.8.4 and previous.
+ Defaults to false.
+
+status.renameLimit::
+ The number of files to consider when performing rename detection
+ in linkgit:git-status[1] and linkgit:git-commit[1]. Defaults to
+ the value of diff.renameLimit.
+
+status.renames::
+ Whether and how Git detects renames in linkgit:git-status[1] and
+ linkgit:git-commit[1] . If set to "false", rename detection is
+ disabled. If set to "true", basic rename detection is enabled.
+ If set to "copies" or "copy", Git will detect copies, as well.
+ Defaults to the value of diff.renames.
+
+status.showStash::
+ If set to true, linkgit:git-status[1] will display the number of
+ entries currently stashed away.
+ Defaults to false.
+
+status.showUntrackedFiles::
+ By default, linkgit:git-status[1] and linkgit: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
+ 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:
++
+--
+* `no` - Show no untracked files.
+* `normal` - Show untracked files and directories.
+* `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 linkgit:git-status[1] and linkgit: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 linkgit:git-submodule[1]). Please note
+ that the summary output command will be suppressed for all
+ submodules when `diff.ignoreSubmodules` is set to 'all' or only
+ for those submodules where `submodule.<name>.ignore=all`. The only
+ exception to that rule is that status and commit will show staged
+ submodule changes. To
+ also view the summary for ignored submodules you can either use
+ the --ignore-submodules=dirty command-line option or the 'git
+ submodule summary' command, which shows a similar output but does
+ not honor these settings.
