can someone explain me why I still have a git-commit package from ELPA in? I just read that this is now provided from magit?
With a link to the source where you have read this
packages.eland see if it causes any problems...
SPC f L
SPC s f
packages.elwill not cause any problems
SPC b blists buffers and the colors tell you what is the state of the buffer. Did you read the Spacemacs beginners tutorial?
