I had an issue where I could not save to a sf sandbox. I decided to reset local changes to see if that would solve the problem and saw a message that "another git process seems to be running in this repository ". A few googles later, I learned I needed to delete an index.lock file. I tracked it down but this was a seriously manual process (the average Salesforce developer might have a lot of trouble figuring out bash…) .
Can I request a GUI to handle situations like this after being prompted with repository issues after trying to reset local changes?
