Magit runs Git either for side-effects (e.g. when pushing) or to get
some value (e.g. the name of the current branch). When Git is run for
side-effects, the mode line displays a process status indicator (using
magit-mode-line-process face), and the process output goes into
a per-repository log buffer, which can be consulted when things don’t
go as expected. Process errors are indicated at the top of the status
This commands displays the process buffer for the current repository.
Inside that buffer, the usual key bindings for navigating and showing sections are available. There is one additional command.
This command kills the process represented by the section at point.
When this is non-nil then the output of all calls to git are logged in the process buffer. This is useful when debugging, otherwise it just negatively affects performance.
