Different colours for the apps and device handlers in IDE

I see black (which. I assume means up to date)
blue
green

are there anymore colours that I have not seen yet and what do they mean?

maybe should just RTFM

Black

Indicates that the file is unchanged between your forked GitHub repository and the IDE.

Green

Indicates that the file is in the IDE only, and not in any repository.

Blue

Indicates that the file exists in your GitHub repository, and has been modified in the IDE but not committed to the repository.

Magenta

Indicates that the file has been updated in the repository, but not in the IDE. To resolve this, you should click the Update from Repo button, where you sill see the file appear in the Obsolete column. More information about the Update from Repo button can be found below.

Red

Both the IDE version and repository version have been updated, and are in need of a conflict resolution. To resolve this, you should click the Update from Repo button and follow the steps there (more information about the Update from Repo action can be found below).

Brown

Indicates that the SmartApp or Device Handler is unattached to the repository version. Typically this happens when a new SmartApp or Device Handler is created from a template, and the name or namespace hasn’t been changed. If you update from the repo without changing the name or namespace, the IDE version will be replaced with the repo version. Typically in this case you would change the name and namespace to be unique for your code.
