In addition to Commit and Fetch, could we please add a Status option? Viewing the git status is a very useful option for git repositories, and one that should be accordingly easy to get to.

For now, I'm using "git status" from the command line, but it would be nice if EGit offered this ability in the same menu options it lists for other git commands.

What's the difference between the CLI "git status" and the EGit:Git-Staging-View?

EGit automatically shows the status both in the staging view and the team provider decoration of all
navigation views like project or package explorer. And it automatically updates the shown status
since it listens on resource change events.

See http://wiki.eclipse.org/EGit/User_Guide#Inspecting_the_state_of_the_Repository

Git staging view is very different from git status. I want to see exactly the output of `git status` in a graphical window.

Why do you need it in the same format in a graphical window ?

If all you want is to see the results of 'git status' displayed in your Eclipse console, that's very easy - just write an external launcher to execute the command. The working directory can be accessed via the Eclipse variable {git_work_tree}. The value is the root of the working tree of the currently selected repository
