There's a section on "Use of Git" in Etc/zsh-development-guide which has

You don't want to clone again.  Use "git pull".

} Would any files I've added be preserved, or nuked?

I don't believe git will ever nuke something that's not under its control,
but I've never done a clone on top of a clone.

} Can we:
}      git just-show-me-whats-changed ... ?

git status  -- to see what files are (not) under git control

git diff  --  to see what *you* changed but did not yet commit

git whatchanged  -- to see change history of your current source tree

git whatchanged origin/master  -- for changes you may not have "pull"ed
