tune2fs filesystem state meanings

Does anyone know of a site that lists all the possible options for what tune2fs might list as its filesystem state, and what they all mean? For instance, I believe, but am not certain, that it says "not clean" once a volume is mounted in write (as opposed to read-only) mode, and does not mean that there are errors on the volume.

I looked in the man page and didn't see this, so hoping there's something out there. Would be great if it was included in the man page I think.

Also, what confuses me is that on some servers i have mounted volumes that can be written to, where they say "clean" as the filesystem state, where on another server it says "not clean", which further confuses me on my point in the first post.
