What does begin ahead means? Like here:

$ git status

On branch main
Your branch is ahead of 'origin/main' by 1 commit.
  (use "git push" to publish your local commits)

nothing to commit, working tree clean
  • I think that it just means, that locally, you are 'ahead' of what is available in the repository - Just the intuitive meaning of the word
  • Why this is mentioned: The longer you wait with pushing your changes, the larger the risk that there will be conflicts with stuff from others.
