documentation: replace Discussion section by link to user-manual chapter
The "Discussion" section has a lot of useful information, but is a little wordy, especially for an already-long man page, and is designed for an audience more of potential git hackers than users, which probably doesn't make as much sense as git matures. Also, I (perhaps foolishly) forked a version in the user manual, which has been significantly rewritten in an attempt to address some of the above problems. So, remove this section and replace it by a (very terse) summary of the original material--my attempt at the World's Shortest Git Overview--and a reference to the appropriate chapter of the user manual. It's unfortunate to remove something that's been in this place for a long time, as some people may still depend on finding it there. But I think we'll want to do this some day anyway.
