I am trying to use magit in spacemacs. When I read instructions to use magit, I am instructed to hit spc + g + s. However, when I push spc + g I see only one shortcut which is spc + g + f + s, which is "helm-ls-git-ls". Why do I not have any of the other keybindings? I have checked to make sure magit is installed, and also I have reinstalled the package, but I still not get any of the keybindings. I am at a loss. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

I figured out the problem. In my spacemacs dotfile, under my layers function, I had the line git commented out. I have since enabled the git layer and I now have all the associated magit commands.
