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.

       When reading, the values are read from the system, global and
       repository local configuration files by default, and options --system,
       --global, --local and --file <filename> can be used to tell the command
       to read from only that location (see the section called "FILES").

       When writing, the new value is written to the repository local
       configuration file by default, and options --system, --global, --file
       <filename> can be used to tell the command to write to that location
       (you can say --local but that is the default).

       This command will fail with non-zero status upon error. Some exit codes
       are:

       o   The section or key is invalid (ret=1),

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

       o   the config file is invalid (ret=3),

       o   the config file cannot be written (ret=4),

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

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

       o   you try to use an invalid regexp (ret=6).

       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 the last value if multiple key values were found.

       --get-all
           Like get, but returns all values for a multi-valued key.

       --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.

       --get-urlmatch name URL
           When given a two-part name section.key, the value for
           section.<url>.key whose <url> part matches the best to the given
           URL is returned (if no such key exists, the value for section.key
           is used as a fallback). When given just the section as name, do so
           for all the keys in the section and list them. Returns error code 1
           if no value is found.

       --global
           For writing options: write to global ~/.gitconfig file rather than
           the repository .git/config, write to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/config
           file if this file exists and the ~/.gitconfig file doesn't.

           For reading options: read only from global ~/.gitconfig and from
           $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/config 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".

       --local
           For writing options: write to the repository .git/config file. This
           is the default behavior.

           For reading options: read only from the repository .git/config
           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.

       --blob blob
           Similar to --file but use the given blob instead of a file. E.g.
           you can use master:.gitmodules to read values from the file
           .gitmodules in the master branch. See "SPECIFYING REVISIONS"
           section in gitrevisions(7) for a more complete list of ways to
           spell blob names.

       --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, along with their values.

       --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.

       --name-only
           Output only the names of config variables for --list or
           --get-regexp.

       --show-origin
           Augment the output of all queried config options with the origin
           type (file, standard input, blob, command line) and the actual
           origin (config file path, ref, or blob id if applicable).

       --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).

       --[no-]includes
           Respect include.*  directives in config files when looking up
           values. Defaults to off when a specific file is given (e.g., using
           --file, --global, etc) and on when searching all config files.


FILES

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

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

       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/config
           Second user-specific configuration file. If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not
           set or empty, $HOME/.config/git/config will be used. Any
           single-valued variable set in this file will be overwritten by
           whatever is in ~/.gitconfig. It is a good idea not to create this
           file if you sometimes use older versions of Git, as support for
           this file was added fairly recently.

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

       $GIT_DIR/config
           Repository specific 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.

       The files are read in the order given above, with last value found
       taking precedence over values read earlier. When multiple values are
       taken then all values of a key from all files will be used.

       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.

       GIT_CONFIG_NOSYSTEM
           Whether to skip reading settings from the system-wide
           $(prefix)/etc/gitconfig file. See git(1) for details.

       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

           ; HTTP
           [http]
                   sslVerify
           [http "https://weak.example.com"]
                   sslVerify = false
                   cookieFile = /tmp/cookie.txt

       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 --add 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}"


       For URLs in https://weak.example.com, http.sslVerify is set to false,
       while it is set to true for all others:

           % git config --bool --get-urlmatch http.sslverify https://good.example.com
           true
           % git config --bool --get-urlmatch http.sslverify https://weak.example.com
           false
           % git config --get-urlmatch http https://weak.example.com
           http.cookieFile /tmp/cookie.txt
           http.sslverify false



CONFIGURATION FILE

       The Git configuration file contains a number of variables that affect
       the Git commands' 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; we say then that
       the variable is multivalued.

   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 case-insensitive. 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 can be included by escaping
       them 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
       (or just name, which is a short-hand to say that the variable is the
       boolean "true"). The variable names are case-insensitive, allow only
       alphanumeric characters and -, and must start with an alphabetic
       character.

       A line that defines a value can be continued to the next line by ending
       it with a \; the backquote and the end-of-line are stripped. Leading
       whitespaces after name =, the remainder of the line after the first
       comment character # or ;, and trailing whitespaces of the line are
       discarded unless they are enclosed in double quotes. Internal
       whitespaces within the value are retained verbatim.

       Inside double quotes, double quote " and backslash \ characters 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). Other char escape sequences (including octal
       escape sequences) are invalid.

   Includes
       You can include one config file from another by setting the special
       include.path variable to the name of the file to be included. The
       variable takes a pathname as its value, and is subject to tilde
       expansion.

       The included file is expanded immediately, as if its contents had been
       found at the location of the include directive. If the value of the
       include.path variable is a relative path, the path is considered to be
       relative to the configuration file in which the include directive was
       found. See below for examples.

   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

           [include]
                   path = /path/to/foo.inc ; include by absolute path
                   path = foo ; expand "foo" relative to the current file
                   path = ~/foo ; expand "foo" in your `$HOME` directory

   Values
       Values of many variables are treated as a simple string, but there are
       variables that take values of specific types and there are rules as to
       how to spell them.

       boolean
           When a variable is said to take a boolean value, many synonyms are
           accepted for true and false; these are all case-insensitive.

           true
               Boolean true can be spelled as yes, on, true, or 1. Also, a
               variable defined without = <value> is taken as true.

           false
               Boolean false can be spelled as no, off, false, or 0.

               When converting value to the canonical form using --bool type
               specifier; git config will ensure that the output is "true" or
               "false" (spelled in lowercase).

       integer
           The value for many variables that specify various sizes can be
           suffixed with k, M,... to mean "scale the number by 1024", "by
           1024x1024", etc.

       color
           The value for a variables that takes a color 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. Attributes may be turned off specifically by prefixing them
           with no (e.g., noreverse, noul, etc).

           Colors (foreground and background) may also be given as numbers
           between 0 and 255; these use ANSI 256-color mode (but note that not
           all terminals may support this). If your terminal supports it, you
           may also specify 24-bit RGB values as hex, like #ff0ab3.

           The attributes are meant to be reset at the beginning of each item
           in the colored output, so setting color.decorate.branch to black
           will paint that branch name in a plain black, even if the previous
           thing on the same output line (e.g. opening parenthesis before the
           list of branch names in log --decorate output) is set to be painted
           with bold or some other attribute.

       pathname
           A variable that takes a pathname value can be given a string that
           begins with "~/" or "~user/", and the usual tilde expansion happens
           to such a string: ~/ is expanded to the value of $HOME, and ~user/
           to the specified user's home directory.

   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.

       Other git-related tools may and do use their own variables. When
       inventing new variables for use in your own tool, make sure their names
       do not conflict with those that are used by Git itself and other
       popular tools, and describe them in your 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:

           pushUpdateRejected
               Set this variable to false if you want to disable
               pushNonFFCurrent, pushNonFFMatching, pushAlreadyExists,
               pushFetchFirst, and pushNeedsForce simultaneously.

           pushNonFFCurrent
               Advice shown when git-push(1) fails due to a non-fast-forward
               update to the current branch.

           pushNonFFMatching
               Advice shown when you ran 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 git-push(1) rejects an update that does not qualify
               for fast-forwarding (e.g., a tag.)

           pushFetchFirst
               Shown when 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 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.

           statusHints
               Show directions on how to proceed from the current state in the
               output of git-status(1), in the template shown when writing
               commit messages in git-commit(1), and in the help message shown
               by git-checkout(1) when switching branch.

           statusUoption
               Advise to consider using the -u option to git-status(1) when
               the command takes more than 2 seconds to enumerate untracked
               files.

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

           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 git-checkout(1) to move to the
               detach HEAD state, to instruct how to create a local branch
               after the fact.

           amWorkDir
               Advice that shows the location of the patch file when git-am(1)
               fails to apply it.

           rmHints
               In case of failure in the output of git-rm(1), show directions
               on how to proceed from the current state.

       core.fileMode
           Tells Git if the executable bit of files in the working tree is to
           be honored.

           Some filesystems lose the executable bit when a file that is marked
           as executable is checked out, or checks out an non-executable file
           with executable bit on.  git-clone(1) or git-init(1) probe the
           filesystem to see if it handles the executable bit correctly and
           this variable is automatically set as necessary.

           A repository, however, may be on a filesystem that handles the
           filemode correctly, and this variable is set to true when created,
           but later may be made accessible from another environment that
           loses the filemode (e.g. exporting ext4 via CIFS mount, visiting a
           Cygwin created repository with Git for Windows or Eclipse). In such
           a case it may be necessary to set this variable to false. See git-
       update-index(1).

           The default is true (when core.filemode is not specified in the
           config file).

       core.hideDotFiles
           (Windows-only) If true, mark newly-created directories and files
           whose name starts with a dot as hidden. If dotGitOnly, only the
           .git/ directory is hidden, but no other files starting with a dot.
           The default mode is dotGitOnly.

       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.precomposeUnicode
           This option is only used by Mac OS implementation of Git. When
           core.precomposeUnicode=true, Git reverts the unicode decomposition
           of filenames done by Mac OS. This is useful when sharing a
           repository between Mac OS and Linux or Windows. (Git for Windows
           1.7.10 or higher is needed, or Git under cygwin 1.7). When false,
           file names are handled fully transparent by Git, which is backward
           compatible with older versions of Git.

       core.protectHFS
           If set to true, do not allow checkout of paths that would be
           considered equivalent to .git on an HFS+ filesystem. Defaults to
           true on Mac OS, and false elsewhere.

       core.protectNTFS
           If set to true, do not allow checkout of paths that would cause
           problems with the NTFS filesystem, e.g. conflict with 8.3 "short"
           names. Defaults to true on Windows, and false elsewhere.

       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.untrackedCache
           Determines what to do about the untracked cache feature of the
           index. It will be kept, if this variable is unset or set to keep.
           It will automatically be added if set to true. And it will
           automatically be removed, if set to false. Before setting it to
           true, you should check that mtime is working properly on your
           system. See git-update-index(1).  keep by default.

       core.checkStat
           Determines which stat fields to match between the index and work
           tree. The user can set this to default or minimal. Default (or
           explicitly default), is to check all fields, including the
           sub-second part of mtime and ctime.

       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 when core.autocrlf is false.
           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, Git will avoid using lstat() calls to detect if files have
           changed by setting the "assume-unchanged" bit for those tracked
           files which it has updated identically in both the index and
           working tree.

           When files are modified outside of Git, the user will need to stage
           the modified files explicitly (e.g. see Examples section in git-
       update-index(1)). Git will not normally detect changes to those
           files.

           This is useful on systems where lstat() calls are very slow, such
           as CIFS/Microsoft Windows.

           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. If GIT_COMMON_DIR
           environment variable is set, core.worktree is ignored and not used
           for determining the root of 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
           "$GIT_DIR/logs/<ref>", by appending the new and old SHA-1, the
           date/time and the reason of the update, but only when the file
           exists. If this configuration variable is set to true, missing
           "$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 repository. 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 96 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. Additionally files larger than this size are always
           treated as binary.

           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
           Specifies the pathname to the file that contains patterns to
           describe paths that are not meant to be tracked, in addition to
           .gitignore (per-directory) and .git/info/exclude. Defaults to
           $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/ignore. If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is either not set
           or empty, $HOME/.config/git/ignore is used instead. 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. Its default value is
           $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/attributes. If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is either not
           set or empty, $HOME/.config/git/attributes is used instead.

       core.hooksPath
           By default Git will look for your hooks in the $GIT_DIR/hooks
           directory. Set this to different path, e.g.  /etc/git/hooks, and
           Git will try to find your hooks in that directory, e.g.
           /etc/git/hooks/pre-receive instead of in
           $GIT_DIR/hooks/pre-receive.

           The path can be either absolute or relative. A relative path is
           taken as relative to the directory where the hooks are run (see the
           "DESCRIPTION" section of githooks(5)).

           This configuration variable is useful in cases where you'd like to
           centrally configure your Git hooks instead of configuring them on a
           per-repository basis, or as a more flexible and centralized
           alternative to having an init.templateDir where you've changed
           default hooks.

       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).

       core.commentChar
           Commands such as commit and tag that lets you edit messages
           consider a line that begins with this character commented, and
           removes them after the editor returns (default #).

           If set to "auto", git-commit would select a character that is not
           the beginning character of any line in existing commit messages.

       core.packedRefsTimeout
           The length of time, in milliseconds, to retry when trying to lock
           the packed-refs file. Value 0 means not to retry at all; -1 means
           to try indefinitely. Default is 1000 (i.e., retry for 1 second).

       sequence.editor
           Text editor used by git rebase -i for editing the rebase
           instruction 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
           Text viewer for use by Git commands (e.g., less). The value is
           meant to be interpreted by the shell. The order of preference is
           the $GIT_PAGER environment variable, then core.pager configuration,
           then $PAGER, and then the default chosen at compile time (usually
           less).

           When the LESS environment variable is unset, Git sets it to FRX (if
           LESS environment variable is set, Git does not change it at all).
           If you want to selectively override Git's default setting for LESS,
           you can set core.pager to e.g.  less -S. This will be passed to the
           shell by Git, which will translate the final command to LESS=FRX
           less -S. The environment does not set the S option but the command
           line does, instructing less to truncate long lines. Similarly,
           setting core.pager to less -+F will deactivate the F option
           specified by the environment from the command-line, deactivating
           the "quit if one screen" behavior of less. One can specifically
           activate some flags for particular commands: for example, setting
           pager.blame to less -S enables line truncation only for git blame.

           Likewise, when the LV environment variable is unset, Git sets it to
           -c. You can override this setting by exporting LV with another
           value or setting core.pager to lv +c.

       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 space
               characters instead of the equivalent tabs 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. When enabled, Git will do
           the index comparison to the filesystem data in parallel, allowing
           overlapping IO's. Defaults to true.

       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.ignoreErrors, add.ignore-errors (deprecated)
           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).  add.ignore-errors is deprecated, as it does
           not follow the usual naming convention for configuration variables.

       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. A quote pair or
           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).

       am.threeWay
           By default, git am will fail if the patch does not apply cleanly.
           When set to true, this setting tells git am to fall back on 3-way
           merge if the patch records the identity of blobs it is supposed to
           apply to and we have those blobs available locally (equivalent to
           giving the --3way option from the command line). Defaults to false.
           See git-am(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 on branch <name>, it tells git fetch and git push which remote
           to fetch from/push to. The remote to push to may be overridden with
           remote.pushDefault (for all branches). The remote to push to, for
           the current branch, may be further overridden by
           branch.<name>.pushRemote. If no remote is configured, or if you are
           not on any branch, it defaults to origin for fetching and
           remote.pushDefault for pushing. Additionally, .  (a period) is the
           current local repository (a dot-repository), see
           branch.<name>.merge's final note below.

       branch.<name>.pushRemote
           When on branch <name>, it overrides branch.<name>.remote for
           pushing. It also overrides remote.pushDefault for pushing from
           branch <name>. When you pull from one place (e.g. your upstream)
           and push to another place (e.g. your own publishing repository),
           you would want to set remote.pushDefault to specify the remote to
           push to for all branches, and use this option to override it for a
           specific 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 relative path 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.

           When preserve, also pass --preserve-merges along to git rebase so
           that locally committed merge commits will not be flattened by
           running git pull.

           When the value is interactive, the rebase is run in interactive
           mode.

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

       branch.<name>.description
           Branch description, can be edited with git branch
           --edit-description. Branch description is automatically added in
           the format-patch cover letter or request-pull summary.

       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, -i 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/), upstream (upstream
           tracking branch), plain (other refs).

       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) or 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 context
           (context text - plain is a historical synonym), meta
           (metainformation), frag (hunk header), func (function in hunk
           header), old (removed lines), new (added lines), commit (commit
           headers), or whitespace (highlighting whitespace errors).

       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 (same as setting matchContext and matchSelected)

           matchContext
               matching text in context lines

           matchSelected
               matching text in selected lines

           selected
               non-matching text in selected lines

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

       color.interactive
           When set to always, always use colors for interactive prompts and
           displays (such as those used by "git-add --interactive" and
           "git-clean --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 and git clean
           --interactive output.  <slot> may be prompt, header, help or error,
           for four distinct types of normal output from interactive commands.

       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), nobranch (the color
           the no branch warning is shown in, defaulting to red), or unmerged
           (files which have unmerged changes).

       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 false or never
           if you prefer Git commands not to use color unless enabled
           explicitly with some other configuration or the --color option. Set
           it to always if you want all output not intended for machine
           consumption to use color, to true or auto (this is the default
           since Git 1.8.4) if you want such output to use color when written
           to the terminal.

       column.ui
           Specify whether supported commands should output in columns. This
           variable consists of a list of tokens separated by spaces or
           commas:

           These options control when the feature should be enabled (defaults
           to never):

           always
               always show in columns

           never
               never show in columns

           auto
               show in columns if the output is to the terminal

           These options control layout (defaults to column). Setting any of
           these implies always if none of always, never, or auto are
           specified.

           column
               fill columns before rows

           row
               fill rows before columns

           plain
               show in one column

           Finally, these options can be combined with a layout option
           (defaults to nodense):

           dense
               make unequal size columns to utilize more space

           nodense
               make equal size columns

       column.branch
           Specify whether to output branch listing in git branch in columns.
           See column.ui for details.

       column.clean
           Specify the layout when list items in git clean -i, which always
           shows files and directories in columns. See column.ui for details.

       column.status
           Specify whether to output untracked files in git status in columns.
           See column.ui for details.

       column.tag
           Specify whether to output tag listing in git tag in columns. See
           column.ui for details.

       commit.cleanup
           This setting overrides the default of the --cleanup option in git
           commit. See git-commit(1) for details. Changing the default can be
           useful when you always want to keep lines that begin with comment
           character # in your log message, in which case you would do git
           config commit.cleanup whitespace (note that you will have to remove
           the help lines that begin with # in the commit log template
           yourself, if you do this).

       commit.gpgSign
           A boolean to specify whether all commits should be GPG signed. Use
           of this option when doing operations such as rebase can result in a
           large number of commits being signed. It may be convenient to use
           an agent to avoid typing your GPG passphrase several times.

       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 the pathname of a file to use as the template for new
           commit messages.

       commit.verbose
           A boolean or int to specify the level of verbose with git commit.
           See git-commit(1).

       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. Note that multiple
           helpers may be defined. 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.

       credentialCache.ignoreSIGHUP
           Tell git-credential-cache--daemon to ignore SIGHUP, instead of
           quitting.

       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.statGraphWidth
           Limit the width of the graph part in --stat output. If set, applies
           to all commands generating --stat output except format-patch.

       diff.context
           Generate diffs with <n> lines of context instead of the default of
           3. This value is overridden by the -U option.

       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. Setting it to all disables the
           submodule summary normally shown by git commit and git status when
           status.submoduleSummary is set unless it is overridden by using the
           --ignore-submodules command-line option. The git submodule commands
           are not affected by this setting.

       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.orderFile
           File indicating how to order files within a diff, using one shell
           glob pattern per line. Can be overridden by the -O option to git-
       diff(1).

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

       diff.renames
           Whether and how Git detects renames. 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 true. Note that this affects only git diff
           Porcelain like git-diff(1) and git-log(1), and not lower level
           commands such as git-diff-files(1).

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

       diff.submodule
           Specify the format in which differences in submodules are shown.
           The "log" format lists the commits in the range like git-
       submodule(1) does. The "short" format format just shows the
           names of the commits at the beginning and end of the range.
           Defaults to short.

       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.

       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
           Controls which diff tool is used by git-difftool(1). This variable
           overrides the value configured in merge.tool. The list below shows
           the valid built-in values. Any other value is treated as a custom
           diff tool and requires that a corresponding difftool.<tool>.cmd
           variable is defined.

           o   araxis

           o   bc

           o   bc3

           o   codecompare

           o   deltawalker

           o   diffmerge

           o   diffuse

           o   ecmerge

           o   emerge

           o   examdiff

           o   gvimdiff

           o   gvimdiff2

           o   gvimdiff3

           o   kdiff3

           o   kompare

           o   meld

           o   opendiff

           o   p4merge

           o   tkdiff

           o   vimdiff

           o   vimdiff2

           o   vimdiff3

           o   winmerge

           o   xxdiff

       diff.compactionHeuristic
           Set this option to true to enable an experimental heuristic that
           shifts the hunk boundary in an attempt to make the resulting patch
           easier to read.

       diff.algorithm
           Choose a diff algorithm. The variants are as follows:

           default, myers
               The basic greedy diff algorithm. Currently, this is the
               default.

           minimal
               Spend extra time to make sure the smallest possible diff is
               produced.

           patience
               Use "patience diff" algorithm when generating patches.

           histogram
               This algorithm extends the patience algorithm to "support
               low-occurrence common elements".

       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.

       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.

       fetch.prune
           If true, fetch will automatically behave as if the --prune option
           was given on the command line. See also remote.<name>.prune.

       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.signatureFile
           Works just like format.signature except the contents of the file
           specified by this variable will be used as the signature.

       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.

       format.coverLetter
           A boolean that controls whether to generate a cover-letter when
           format-patch is invoked, but in addition can be set to "auto", to
           generate a cover-letter only when there's more than one patch.

       format.outputDirectory
           Set a custom directory to store the resulting files instead of the
           current working directory.

       format.useAutoBase
           A boolean value which lets you enable the --base=auto option of
           format-patch by default.

       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.

       fsck.<msg-id>
           Allows overriding the message type (error, warn or ignore) of a
           specific message ID such as missingEmail.

           For convenience, fsck prefixes the error/warning with the message
           ID, e.g. "missingEmail: invalid author/committer line - missing
           email" means that setting fsck.missingEmail = ignore will hide that
           issue.

           This feature is intended to support working with legacy
           repositories which cannot be repaired without disruptive changes.

       fsck.skipList
           The path to a sorted list of object names (i.e. one SHA-1 per line)
           that are known to be broken in a non-fatal way and should be
           ignored. This feature is useful when an established project should
           be accepted despite early commits containing errors that can be
           safely ignored such as invalid committer email addresses. Note:
           corrupt objects cannot be skipped with this setting.

       gc.aggressiveDepth
           The depth parameter used in the delta compression algorithm used by
           git gc --aggressive. This defaults to 250.

       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.autoDetach
           Make git gc --auto return immediately and run in background if the
           system supports it. Default is true.

       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, or "never" may be used to suppress
           pruning.

       gc.worktreePruneExpire
           When git gc is run, it calls git worktree prune --expire
           3.months.ago. This config variable can be used to set a different
           grace period. The value "now" may be used to disable the grace
           period and prune $GIT_DIR/worktrees immediately, or "never" may be
           used to suppress pruning.

       gc.reflogExpire, gc.<pattern>.reflogExpire
           git reflog expire removes reflog entries older than this time;
           defaults to 90 days. The value "now" expires all entries
           immediately, and "never" suppresses expiration altogether. With
           "<pattern>" (e.g. "refs/stash") in the middle the setting applies
           only to the refs that match the <pattern>.

       gc.reflogExpireUnreachable, gc.<pattern>.reflogExpireUnreachable
           git reflog expire removes reflog entries older than this time and
           are not reachable from the current tip; defaults to 30 days. The
           value "now" expires all entries immediately, and "never" suppresses
           expiration altogether. 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.patternType
           Set the default matching behavior. Using a value of basic,
           extended, fixed, or perl will enable the --basic-regexp,
           --extended-regexp, --fixed-strings, or --perl-regexp option
           accordingly, while the value default will return to the default
           matching behavior.

       grep.extendedRegexp
           If set to true, enable --extended-regexp option by default. This
           option is ignored when the grep.patternType option is set to a
           value other than default.

       grep.threads
           Number of grep worker threads to use. See grep.threads in git-
       grep(1) for more information.

       grep.fallbackToNoIndex
           If set to true, fall back to git grep --no-index if git grep is
           executed outside of a git repository. Defaults to false.

       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.displayUntracked
           Determines if git-gui(1) shows untracked files in the file list.
           The default is "true".

       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.

       help.htmlPath
           Specify the path where the HTML documentation resides. File system
           paths and URLs are supported. HTML pages will be prefixed with this
           path when help is displayed in the web format. This defaults to the
           documentation path of your Git installation.

       http.proxy
           Override the HTTP proxy, normally configured using the http_proxy,
           https_proxy, and all_proxy environment variables (see curl(1)). In
           addition to the syntax understood by curl, it is possible to
           specify a proxy string with a user name but no password, in which
           case git will attempt to acquire one in the same way it does for
           other credentials. See gitcredentials(7) for more information. The
           syntax thus is [protocol://][user[:password]@]proxyhost[:port].
           This can be overridden on a per-remote basis; see
           remote.<name>.proxy

       http.proxyAuthMethod
           Set the method with which to authenticate against the HTTP proxy.
           This only takes effect if the configured proxy string contains a
           user name part (i.e. is of the form user@host or user@host:port).
           This can be overridden on a per-remote basis; see
           remote.<name>.proxyAuthMethod. Both can be overridden by the
           GIT_HTTP_PROXY_AUTHMETHOD environment variable. Possible values
           are:

           o   anyauth - Automatically pick a suitable authentication method.
               It is assumed that the proxy answers an unauthenticated request
               with a 407 status code and one or more Proxy-authenticate
               headers with supported authentication methods. This is the
               default.

           o   basic - HTTP Basic authentication

           o   digest - HTTP Digest authentication; this prevents the password
               from being transmitted to the proxy in clear text

           o   negotiate - GSS-Negotiate authentication (compare the
               --negotiate option of curl(1))

           o   ntlm - NTLM authentication (compare the --ntlm option of
               curl(1))

       http.emptyAuth
           Attempt authentication without seeking a username or password. This
           can be used to attempt GSS-Negotiate authentication without
           specifying a username in the URL, as libcurl normally requires a
           username for authentication.

       http.extraHeader
           Pass an additional HTTP header when communicating with a server. If
           more than one such entry exists, all of them are added as extra
           headers. To allow overriding the settings inherited from the system
           config, an empty value will reset the extra headers to the empty
           list.

       http.cookieFile
           The pathname of a 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 used
           only as input unless http.saveCookies is set.

       http.saveCookies
           If set, store cookies received during requests to the file
           specified by http.cookieFile. Has no effect if http.cookieFile is
           unset.

       http.sslVersion
           The SSL version to use when negotiating an SSL connection, if you
           want to force the default. The available and default version depend
           on whether libcurl was built against NSS or OpenSSL and the
           particular configuration of the crypto library in use. Internally
           this sets the CURLOPT_SSL_VERSION option; see the libcurl
           documentation for more details on the format of this option and for
           the ssl version supported. Actually the possible values of this
           option are:

           o   sslv2

           o   sslv3

           o   tlsv1

           o   tlsv1.0

           o   tlsv1.1

           o   tlsv1.2

           Can be overridden by the GIT_SSL_VERSION environment variable. To
           force git to use libcurl's default ssl version and ignore any
           explicit http.sslversion option, set GIT_SSL_VERSION to the empty
           string.

       http.sslCipherList
           A list of SSL ciphers to use when negotiating an SSL connection.
           The available ciphers depend on whether libcurl was built against
           NSS or OpenSSL and the particular configuration of the crypto
           library in use. Internally this sets the CURLOPT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST
           option; see the libcurl documentation for more details on the
           format of this list.

           Can be overridden by the GIT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST environment variable.
           To force git to use libcurl's default cipher list and ignore any
           explicit http.sslCipherList option, set GIT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST to the
           empty string.

       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.pinnedpubkey
           Public key of the https service. It may either be the filename of a
           PEM or DER encoded public key file or a string starting with
           sha256// followed by the base64 encoded sha256 hash of the public
           key. See also libcurl CURLOPT_PINNEDPUBLICKEY. git will exit with
           an error if this option is set but not supported by cURL.

       http.sslTry
           Attempt to use AUTH SSL/TLS and encrypted data transfers when
           connecting via regular FTP protocol. This might be needed if the
           FTP server requires it for security reasons or you wish to connect
           securely whenever remote FTP server supports it. Default is false
           since it might trigger certificate verification errors on
           misconfigured servers.

       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.

       http.<url>.*
           Any of the http.* options above can be applied selectively to some
           URLs. For a config key to match a URL, each element of the config
           key is compared to that of the URL, in the following order:

            1. Scheme (e.g., https in https://example.com/). This field must
               match exactly between the config key and the URL.

            2. Host/domain name (e.g., example.com in https://example.com/).
               This field must match exactly between the config key and the
               URL.

            3. Port number (e.g., 8080 in http://example.com:8080/). This
               field must match exactly between the config key and the URL.
               Omitted port numbers are automatically converted to the correct
               default for the scheme before matching.

            4. Path (e.g., repo.git in https://example.com/repo.git). The path
               field of the config key must match the path field of the URL
               either exactly or as a prefix of slash-delimited path elements.
               This means a config key with path foo/ matches URL path
               foo/bar. A prefix can only match on a slash (/) boundary.
               Longer matches take precedence (so a config key with path
               foo/bar is a better match to URL path foo/bar than a config key
               with just path foo/).

            5. User name (e.g., user in https://user@example.com/repo.git). If
               the config key has a user name it must match the user name in
               the URL exactly. If the config key does not have a user name,
               that config key will match a URL with any user name (including
               none), but at a lower precedence than a config key with a user
               name.

           The list above is ordered by decreasing precedence; a URL that
           matches a config key's path is preferred to one that matches its
           user name. For example, if the URL is
           https://user@example.com/foo/bar a config key match of
           https://example.com/foo will be preferred over a config key match
           of https://user@example.com.

           All URLs are normalized before attempting any matching (the
           password part, if embedded in the URL, is always ignored for
           matching purposes) so that equivalent URLs that are simply spelled
           differently will match properly. Environment variable settings
           always override any matches. The URLs that are matched against are
           those given directly to Git commands. This means any URLs visited
           as a result of a redirection do not participate in matching.

       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).

       index.version
           Specify the version with which new index files should be
           initialized. This does not affect existing repositories.

       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;
           requires the Perl module Term::ReadKey.

       interactive.diffFilter
           When an interactive command (such as git add --patch) shows a
           colorized diff, git will pipe the diff through the shell command
           defined by this configuration variable. The command may mark up the
           diff further for human consumption, provided that it retains a
           one-to-one correspondence with the lines in the original diff.
           Defaults to disabled (no filtering).

       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. 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. If
           auto is specified, then if the output is going to a terminal, the
           ref names are shown as if short were given, otherwise no ref names
           are shown. This is the same as the --decorate option of the git
           log.

       log.follow
           If true, git log will act as if the --follow option was used when a
           single <path> is given. This has the same limitations as --follow,
           i.e. it cannot be used to follow multiple files and does not work
           well on non-linear history.

       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.

       log.mailmap
           If true, makes git-log(1), git-show(1), and git-whatchanged(1)
           assume --use-mailmap.

       mailinfo.scissors
           If true, makes git-mailinfo(1) (and therefore git-am(1)) act by
           default as if the --scissors option was provided on the
           command-line. When active, this features removes everything from
           the message body before a scissors line (i.e. consisting mainly of
           ">8", "8<" and "-").

       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).

       mailmap.blob
           Like mailmap.file, but consider the value as a reference to a blob
           in the repository. If both mailmap.file and mailmap.blob are given,
           both are parsed, with entries from mailmap.file taking precedence.
           In a bare repository, this defaults to HEAD:.mailmap. In a non-bare
           repository, it defaults to empty.

       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.branchdesc
           In addition to branch names, populate the log message with the
           branch description text associated with them. Defaults to false.

       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 tool is used by git-mergetool(1). The list
           below shows the valid built-in values. Any other value is treated
           as a custom merge tool and requires that a corresponding
           mergetool.<tool>.cmd variable is defined.

           o   araxis

           o   bc

           o   bc3

           o   codecompare

           o   deltawalker

           o   diffmerge

           o   diffuse

           o   ecmerge

           o   emerge

           o   examdiff

           o   gvimdiff

           o   gvimdiff2

           o   gvimdiff3

           o   kdiff3

           o   meld

           o   opendiff

           o   p4merge

           o   tkdiff

           o   tortoisemerge

           o   vimdiff

           o   vimdiff2

           o   vimdiff3

           o   winmerge

           o   xxdiff

       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.meld.hasOutput
           Older versions of meld do not support the --output option. Git will
           attempt to detect whether meld supports --output by inspecting the
           output of meld --help. Configuring mergetool.meld.hasOutput will
           make Git skip these checks and use the configured value instead.
           Setting mergetool.meld.hasOutput to true tells Git to
           unconditionally use the --output option, and false avoids using
           --output.

       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.writeToTemp
           Git writes temporary BASE, LOCAL, and REMOTE versions of
           conflicting files in the worktree by default. Git will attempt to
           use a temporary directory for these files when set true. Defaults
           to false.

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

       notes.mergeStrategy
           Which merge strategy to choose by default when resolving notes
           conflicts. Must be one of manual, ours, theirs, union, or
           cat_sort_uniq. Defaults to manual. See "NOTES MERGE STRATEGIES"
           section of git-notes(1) for more information on each strategy.

       notes.<name>.mergeStrategy
           Which merge strategy to choose when doing a notes merge into
           refs/notes/<name>. This overrides the more general
           "notes.mergeStrategy". See the "NOTES MERGE STRATEGIES" section in
           git-notes(1) for more information on the available strategies.

       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, cat_sort_uniq, 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 maximum size of memory that is consumed by each thread in git-
       pack-objects(1) for pack window memory when no limit is given on
           the command line. The value can be suffixed with "k", "m", or "g".
           When left unconfigured (or set explicitly to 0), there will be 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")
           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).
           Reaching this limit results in the creation of multiple packfiles;
           which in turn prevents bitmaps from being created. The minimum size
           allowed is limited to 1 MiB. The default is unlimited. Common unit
           suffixes of k, m, or g are supported.

       pack.useBitmaps
           When true, git will use pack bitmaps (if available) when packing to
           stdout (e.g., during the server side of a fetch). Defaults to true.
           You should not generally need to turn this off unless you are
           debugging pack bitmaps.

       pack.writeBitmaps (deprecated)
           This is a deprecated synonym for repack.writeBitmaps.

       pack.writeBitmapHashCache
           When true, git will include a "hash cache" section in the bitmap
           index (if one is written). This cache can be used to feed git's
           delta heuristics, potentially leading to better deltas between
           bitmapped and non-bitmapped objects (e.g., when serving a fetch
           between an older, bitmapped pack and objects that have been pushed
           since the last gc). The downside is that it consumes 4 bytes per
           object of disk space, and that JGit's bitmap implementation does
           not understand it, causing it to complain if Git and JGit are used
           on the same repository. Defaults to false.

       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.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).
           This setting overrides merge.ff when pulling.

       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.

           When preserve, also pass --preserve-merges along to git rebase so
           that locally committed merge commits will not be flattened by
           running git pull.

           When the value is interactive, the rebase is run in interactive
           mode.

           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 explicitly
           given. Different values are well-suited for specific workflows; for
           instance, in a purely central workflow (i.e. the fetch source is
           equal to the push destination), upstream is probably what you want.
           Possible values are:

           o   nothing - do not push anything (error out) unless a refspec is
               explicitly given. This is primarily meant for people who want
               to avoid mistakes by always being explicit.

           o   current - push the current branch to update a branch with the
               same name on the receiving end. Works in both central and
               non-central workflows.

           o   upstream - push the current branch back to the branch whose
               changes are usually integrated into the current branch (which
               is called @{upstream}). This mode only makes sense if you are
               pushing to the same repository you would normally pull from
               (i.e. central workflow).

           o   simple - in centralized workflow, work like upstream with an
               added safety to refuse to push if the upstream branch's name is
               different from the local one.

               When pushing to a remote that is different from the remote you
               normally pull from, work as current. This is the safest option
               and is suited for beginners.

               This mode has become the default in Git 2.0.

           o   matching - push all branches having the same name on both ends.
               This makes the repository you are pushing to remember the set
               of branches that will be pushed out (e.g. if you always push
               maint and master there and no other branches, the repository
               you push to will have these two branches, and your local maint
               and master will be pushed there).

               To use this mode effectively, you have to make sure all the
               branches you would push out are ready to be pushed out before
               running git push, as the whole point of this mode is to allow
               you to push all of the branches in one go. If you usually
               finish work on only one branch and push out the result, while
               other branches are unfinished, this mode is not for you. Also
               this mode is not suitable for pushing into a shared central
               repository, as other people may add new branches there, or
               update the tip of existing branches outside your control.

               This used to be the default, but not since Git 2.0 (simple is
               the new default).

       push.followTags
           If set to true enable --follow-tags option by default. You may
           override this configuration at time of push by specifying
           --no-follow-tags.

       push.gpgSign
           May be set to a boolean value, or the string if-asked. A true value
           causes all pushes to be GPG signed, as if --signed is passed to
           git-push(1). The string if-asked causes pushes to be signed if the
           server supports it, as if --signed=if-asked is passed to git push.
           A false value may override a value from a lower-priority config
           file. An explicit command-line flag always overrides this config
           option.

       push.recurseSubmodules
           Make sure all submodule commits used by the revisions to be pushed
           are available on a remote-tracking branch. If the value is check
           then Git will verify that all submodule commits that changed in the
           revisions to be pushed are available on at least one remote of the
           submodule. If any commits are missing, the push will be aborted and
           exit with non-zero status. If the value is on-demand then all
           submodules that changed in the revisions to be pushed will be
           pushed. If on-demand was not able to push all necessary revisions
           it will also be aborted and exit with non-zero status. If the value
           is no then default behavior of ignoring submodules when pushing is
           retained. You may override this configuration at time of push by
           specifying --recurse-submodules=check|on-demand|no.

       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.

       rebase.autoStash
           When set to true, automatically create a temporary stash before the
           operation begins, and apply it after the operation ends. This means
           that you can run rebase on a dirty worktree. However, use with
           care: the final stash application after a successful rebase might
           result in non-trivial conflicts. Defaults to false.

       rebase.missingCommitsCheck
           If set to "warn", git rebase -i will print a warning if some
           commits are removed (e.g. a line was deleted), however the rebase
           will still proceed. If set to "error", it will print the previous
           warning and stop the rebase, git rebase --edit-todo can then be
           used to correct the error. If set to "ignore", no checking is done.
           To drop a commit without warning or error, use the drop command in
           the todo-list. Defaults to "ignore".

       rebase.instructionFormat A format string, as specified in git-log(1),
       to be used for the instruction list during an interactive rebase. The
       format will automatically have the long commit hash prepended to the
       format.

       receive.advertiseAtomic
           By default, git-receive-pack will advertise the atomic push
           capability to its clients. If you don't want to this capability to
           be advertised, set this variable to false.

       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.certNonceSeed
           By setting this variable to a string, git receive-pack will accept
           a git push --signed and verifies it by using a "nonce" protected by
           HMAC using this string as a secret key.

       receive.certNonceSlop
           When a git push --signed sent a push certificate with a "nonce"
           that was issued by a receive-pack serving the same repository
           within this many seconds, export the "nonce" found in the
           certificate to GIT_PUSH_CERT_NONCE to the hooks (instead of what
           the receive-pack asked the sending side to include). This may allow
           writing checks in pre-receive and post-receive a bit easier.
           Instead of checking GIT_PUSH_CERT_NONCE_SLOP environment variable
           that records by how many seconds the nonce is stale to decide if
           they want to accept the certificate, they only can check
           GIT_PUSH_CERT_NONCE_STATUS is OK.

       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.fsck.<msg-id>
           When receive.fsckObjects is set to true, errors can be switched to
           warnings and vice versa by configuring the receive.fsck.<msg-id>
           setting where the <msg-id> is the fsck message ID and the value is
           one of error, warn or ignore. For convenience, fsck prefixes the
           error/warning with the message ID, e.g. "missingEmail: invalid
           author/committer line - missing email" means that setting
           receive.fsck.missingEmail = ignore will hide that issue.

           This feature is intended to support working with legacy
           repositories which would not pass pushing when receive.fsckObjects
           = true, allowing the host to accept repositories with certain known
           issues but still catch other issues.

       receive.fsck.skipList
           The path to a sorted list of object names (i.e. one SHA-1 per line)
           that are known to be broken in a non-fatal way and should be
           ignored. This feature is useful when an established project should
           be accepted despite early commits containing errors that can be
           safely ignored such as invalid committer email addresses. Note:
           corrupt objects cannot be skipped with this setting.

       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".

           Another option is "updateInstead" which will update the working
           tree if pushing into the current branch. This option is intended
           for synchronizing working directories when one side is not easily
           accessible via interactive ssh (e.g. a live web site, hence the
           requirement that the working directory be clean). This mode also
           comes in handy when developing inside a VM to test and fix code on
           different Operating Systems.

           By default, "updateInstead" will refuse the push if the working
           tree or the index have any difference from the HEAD, but the
           push-to-checkout hook can be used to customize this. See
           githooks(5).

       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.hideRefs
           This variable is the same as transfer.hideRefs, but applies only to
           receive-pack (and so affects pushes, but not fetches). An attempt
           to update or delete a hidden ref by git push is rejected.

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

       receive.shallowUpdate
           If set to true, .git/shallow can be updated when new refs require
           new shallow roots. Otherwise those refs are rejected.

       remote.pushDefault
           The remote to push to by default. Overrides branch.<name>.remote
           for all branches, and is overridden by branch.<name>.pushRemote for
           specific branches.

       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>.proxyAuthMethod
           For remotes that require curl (http, https and ftp), the method to
           use for authenticating against the proxy in use (probably set in
           remote.<name>.proxy). See http.proxyAuthMethod.

       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.

       remote.<name>.prune
           When set to true, fetching from this remote by default will also
           remove any remote-tracking references that no longer exist on the
           remote (as if the --prune option was given on the command line).
           Overrides fetch.prune settings, if any.

       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.

       repack.packKeptObjects
           If set to true, makes git repack act as if --pack-kept-objects was
           passed. See git-repack(1) for details. Defaults to false normally,
           but true if a bitmap index is being written (either via
           --write-bitmap-index or repack.writeBitmaps).

       repack.writeBitmaps
           When true, git will write a bitmap index when packing all objects
           to disk (e.g., when git repack -a is run). This index can speed up
           the "counting objects" phase of subsequent packs created for clones
           and fetches, at the cost of some disk space and extra time spent on
           the initial repack. This has no effect if multiple packfiles are
           created. Defaults to false.

       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)
           Deprecated alias for sendemail.smtpEncryption = ssl.

       sendemail.smtpsslcertpath
           Path to ca-certificates (either a directory or a single file). Set
           it to an empty string to disable certificate verification.

       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.

       sendemail.aliasesFile, sendemail.aliasFileType, sendemail.annotate,
       sendemail.bcc, sendemail.cc, sendemail.ccCmd, sendemail.chainReplyTo,
       sendemail.confirm, sendemail.envelopeSender, sendemail.from,
       sendemail.multiEdit, sendemail.signedoffbycc, sendemail.smtpPass,
       sendemail.suppresscc, sendemail.suppressFrom, sendemail.to,
       sendemail.smtpDomain, sendemail.smtpServer, sendemail.smtpServerPort,
       sendemail.smtpServerOption, sendemail.smtpUser, sendemail.thread,
       sendemail.transferEncoding, sendemail.validate, sendemail.xmailer
           See git-send-email(1) for description.

       sendemail.signedoffcc (deprecated)
           Deprecated alias for sendemail.signedoffbycc.

       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.short
           Set to true to enable --short by default in git-status(1). The
           option --no-short takes precedence over this variable.

       status.branch
           Set to true to enable --branch by default in git-status(1). The
           option --no-branch takes precedence over this variable.

       status.displayCommentPrefix
           If set to true, 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 git-status(1) in Git 1.8.4 and
           previous. Defaults to false.

       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 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)).
           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.

       stash.showPatch
           If this is set to true, the git stash show command without an
           option will show the stash in patch form. Defaults to false. See
           description of show command in git-stash(1).

       stash.showStat
           If this is set to true, the git stash show command without an
           option will show diffstat of the stash. Defaults to true. See
           description of show command in git-stash(1).

       submodule.<name>.path, submodule.<name>.url
           The path within this project and URL for a submodule. These
           variables are initially populated by git submodule init. See git-
       submodule(1) and gitmodules(5) for details.

       submodule.<name>.update
           The default update procedure for a submodule. This variable is
           populated by git submodule init from the gitmodules(5) file. See
           description of update command in git-submodule(1).

       submodule.<name>.branch
           The remote branch name for a submodule, used by git submodule
           update --remote. Set this option to override the value 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 (but it will nonetheless show up in the output
           of status and commit when it has been staged), "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. The git submodule commands
           are not affected by this setting.

       submodule.fetchJobs
           Specifies how many submodules are fetched/cloned at the same time.
           A positive integer allows up to that number of submodules fetched
           in parallel. A value of 0 will give some reasonable default. If
           unset, it defaults to 1.

       tag.forceSignAnnotated
           A boolean to specify whether annotated tags created should be GPG
           signed. If --annotate is specified on the command line, it takes
           precedence over this option.

       tag.sort
           This variable controls the sort ordering of tags when displayed by
           git-tag(1). Without the "--sort=<value>" option provided, the value
           of this variable will be used as the default.

       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.hideRefs
           String(s) receive-pack and upload-pack use to decide which refs to
           omit from their initial advertisements. Use more than one
           definition to specify multiple prefix strings. A ref that is under
           the hierarchies listed in the value of this variable is excluded,
           and is hidden when responding to git push or git fetch. See
           receive.hideRefs and uploadpack.hideRefs for program-specific
           versions of this config.

           You may also include a !  in front of the ref name to negate the
           entry, explicitly exposing it, even if an earlier entry marked it
           as hidden. If you have multiple hideRefs values, later entries
           override earlier ones (and entries in more-specific config files
           override less-specific ones).

           If a namespace is in use, the namespace prefix is stripped from
           each reference before it is matched against transfer.hiderefs
           patterns. For example, if refs/heads/master is specified in
           transfer.hideRefs and the current namespace is foo, then
           refs/namespaces/foo/refs/heads/master is omitted from the
           advertisements but refs/heads/master and
           refs/namespaces/bar/refs/heads/master are still advertised as
           so-called "have" lines. In order to match refs before stripping,
           add a ^ in front of the ref name. If you combine !  and ^, !  must
           be specified first.

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

       uploadarchive.allowUnreachable
           If true, allow clients to use git archive --remote to request any
           tree, whether reachable from the ref tips or not. See the
           discussion in the SECURITY section of git-upload-archive(1) for
           more details. Defaults to false.

       uploadpack.hideRefs
           This variable is the same as transfer.hideRefs, but applies only to
           upload-pack (and so affects only fetches, not pushes). An attempt
           to fetch a hidden ref by git fetch will fail. See also
           uploadpack.allowTipSHA1InWant.

       uploadpack.allowTipSHA1InWant
           When uploadpack.hideRefs is in effect, allow upload-pack to accept
           a fetch request that asks for an object at the tip of a hidden ref
           (by default, such a request is rejected). see also
           uploadpack.hideRefs.

       uploadpack.allowReachableSHA1InWant
           Allow upload-pack to accept a fetch request that asks for an object
           that is reachable from any ref tip. However, note that calculating
           object reachability is computationally expensive. Defaults to
           false.

       uploadpack.keepAlive
           When upload-pack has started pack-objects, there may be a quiet
           period while pack-objects prepares the pack. Normally it would
           output progress information, but if --quiet was used for the fetch,
           pack-objects will output nothing at all until the pack data begins.
           Some clients and networks may consider the server to be hung and
           give up. Setting this option instructs upload-pack to send an empty
           keepalive packet every uploadpack.keepAlive seconds. Setting this
           option to 0 disables keepalive packets entirely. The default is 5
           seconds.

       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.useConfigOnly
           Instruct Git to avoid trying to guess defaults for user.email and
           user.name, and instead retrieve the values only from the
           configuration. For example, if you have multiple email addresses
           and would like to use a different one for each repository, then
           with this configuration option set to true in the global config
           along with a name, Git will prompt you to set up an email before
           making new commits in a newly cloned repository. Defaults to false.

       user.signingKey
           If git-tag(1) or git-commit(1) is not selecting the key you want it
           to automatically when creating a signed tag or commit, 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.

       versionsort.prereleaseSuffix
           When version sort is used in git-tag(1), prerelease tags (e.g.
           "1.0-rc1") may appear after the main release "1.0". By specifying
           the suffix "-rc" in this variable, "1.0-rc1" will appear before
           "1.0".

           This variable can be specified multiple times, once per suffix. The
           order of suffixes in the config file determines the sorting order
           (e.g. if "-pre" appears before "-rc" in the config file then
           1.0-preXX is sorted before 1.0-rcXX). The sorting order between
           different suffixes is undefined if they are in multiple config
           files.

       web.browser
           Specify a web browser that may be used by some commands. Currently
