# Branch Display

The branch display output by this command is organized into four columns of information; for example:

*P nocolor

| in repo



The first column contains a * if the branch is the currently checked out branch in any of the specified projects, or a blank if no project has the branch checked out.

The second column contains either blank, p or P, depending upon the upload status of the branch.

(blank): branch not yet published by repo upload

P: all commits were published by repo upload p: only some commits were published by repo upload

The third column contains the branch name.

The fourth column (after the | separator) lists the projects that the branch appears in, or does not appear in.  If no project list is shown, then the branch appears in all projects.
