 	'.git/info/exclude', git looks into this file for patterns
-	of files which are not meant to be tracked.  See

+	of files which are not meant to be tracked.  "{tilde}/" is expanded

 core.editor::
 	Commands such as `commit` and `tag` that lets you edit
 
 commit.template::
 	Specify a file to use as the template for new commit messages.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
