Doc: reference the "stash list" in autostash docs
In documentation pertaining to autostash behavior, we refer to the "stash reflog". This description is too low-level as the reflog refers to an implementation detail of how the stash works and, for end-users, they do not need to be aware of this at all. Change references of "stash reflog" to "stash list", which should provide more accessible terminology for end-users. Signed-off-by: Denton Liu <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
