I'm running git 2.17.0 on Cygwin.
git config --get-regexp color shows me
.... color.status.added bold yellow color.status.changed red color.status.untracked white color.status.branch bold blue color.status.deleted yellow color.status.header bold white .... color.branch.local yellow ....
But when I do a
git status, the "modified" and the "deleted" files are displayed in the same colour (red). Note also that in my terminal configuration, "yellow" is defined as visibly different colour from "red", as I can see when I do a
git branch, which shows the local branches in the correct colour.
My best guess is that git considers a file from the repo, which I have deleted, for some reason as a 'modified' file, but then I wonder, what the color.status.deleted setting is supposed to mean.
Anybody having an explanation for this? Can other people reproduce this?
