'repo status' compares the working tree to the staging area (aka index), and the most recent commit on this branch (HEAD), in each project specified. A summary is displayed, one line per file where there is a difference between these three states.

The -j/--jobs option can be used to run multiple status queries in parallel.

The -o/--orphans option can be used to show objects that are in the working directory, but not associated with a repo project. This includes unmanaged top-level files and directories, but also includes deeper items. For example, if dir/subdir/proj1 and dir/subdir/proj2 are repo projects, dir/subdir/proj3 will be shown if it is not known to repo.

Status Display

The status display is organized into three columns of information, for example if the file 'subcmds/' is modified in the project 'repo' on branch 'devwork':

branch devwork

The first column explains how the staging area (index) differs from the last commit (HEAD). Its values are always displayed in upper case and have the following meanings:

no difference
added (not in HEAD, in index )
modified ( in HEAD, in index, different content )
deleted ( in HEAD, not in index )
renamed (not in HEAD, in index, path changed )
copied (not in HEAD, in index, copied from another)
mode changed ( in HEAD, in index, same content )
unmerged; conflict resolution required

The second column explains how the working directory differs from the index. Its values are always displayed in lower case and have the following meanings:

new / unknown (not in index, in work tree )
modified ( in index, in work tree, modified )
deleted ( in index, not in work tree )
