core-tutorial: Catch up with current Git
No longer talk about Cogito since it's deprecated. Some scripts (such as git-reset or git-branch) have undergone builtinification so adjust the text to reflect this. Fix a typo in the description of git-show-branch (merges are indicated by a `-', not by a `.'). git-pull/git-push do not seem to use the dumb git-ssh-fetch/git-ssh-upload (the text was probably missing a word). Adjust a link that wasn't rendered properly because it was wrapped. Signed-off-by: Benoit Sigoure <tsuna@lrde.epita.fr> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
