Bash, is the Git working directory dirty?

This week at $CURRENT_JOB I was tasked to write a GitHub Actions workflow that would update our lockfile and open a PR with the new version.

At first it seemed very simple, but I have to relearn Bash every time I write it. Fortunately, the solution was easier than we thought after some trial and errors:

    # exits the pipeline without failing
    exit 0
    echo "changes were found"
    # do something with the changes
