 Replying to [comment:4 eric9]:
 > Ah of course it wouldn't be available on earlier versions of git. Can
 you tell me if the --porcelain option is available on It provides
 similar functionality as --short.

  Unfortunately it is not provided by version

 >In version I'm not seeing a --quiet option, and it would be
 annoying to parse the normal status output (git status always seems to
 exit with a 0 code if called inside a repo).

  Yes, it doesn't seem to be there! It is very strange that an option got
 deprecated so fast from one version to another. In any case I am not sure
 how to handle this issue. I guess I will file a ticket asking for a git
 upgrade on Ranger. It would be helpful if others could post here the git
 version they currently have in their production machines. Usually linux
 versions oriented to desktop use have a more up to date version of git,
 svn, hg, etc. That doesn't seem to be the case for production systems.

  Machines/Git version:
