Consider this scenario:
$ touch "a 1.txt"
$ touch "a 2.txt"
$ git add "a 1.txt"
$ git status --porcelain
A "a 1.txt"
?? a 2.txt
Note that the added file is properly quoted to account for the space, but
the unadded file is not.
This makes these scenarios incredibly troublesome to parse with scripts,
etc. As well, this behaviour just seems inconsistent.
I am using *1.7.11.msysgit.0*.
Can someone suggest a next step or an easy shell-based bandaid for this
