List of values and descriptions associated with an elements status.
Each element has a status associated with it, below is a list of each value and description.
backed - The element is the same as the most recent version in the backing stream. Either has not been changed since the workspace tree was last updated, or you changed the element and promoted the change to the backing stream.
external - The file is located in the workspace tree but has not been added to the depot (and so, it's not yet an element).
kept - The changes to the element have been put in the workspace stream using keep. No changes have been made to the element since that time.
modified - The element has been changed since the last time the workspace tree was updated, or since the last time the file was kept.
member - The element is active in the workspace, and so is included in the workspace's default group. The following commands "activate" an element in the current workspace: anchor, co, revert, keep, move, defunct, undefunct.
stale - The element has been changed in the backing stream, but has not been updated the workspace tree.
overlap - The element has been changed both in the workspace tree and in the backing stream. Before you can promote your changes to the backing stream, you must reconcile the differences with the merge command.
missing - There should be a version of the element in the workspace, but there isn't. This occurs when you delete a version-controlled file from the workspace, using operating system command or another application.
stranded - The element is in the default group of the workspace, but has become stranded. This occurs when the workspace no longer has a pathname to the element.
In a new workspace, the status of every element is backed. This means that the version in your workspace is identical to the version in the backing stream.
