“Changes not staged for commit” ?
The files are already added to Git to be monitored, but the changes are not added to be committed. To be add, it needs
git add <filename>
This allows the changes to be recorded for multiple commits separately.
For example, let’s say you have file
b . You modify file
a and file
b , but you don’t want all of them to be in one single commit. You type
git add a git commit a -m "fixes in a" git add b git commit b -m "fixes in b"
As a side note, if you want to commit everything you can just type
git commit -a
