Add default values for --window and --depth to the docs
Currently, you actually have to read the source to find out the default values. While at it, fix two typos and suggest that these options actually take a parameter in git-pack-objects.txt. Signed-off-by: Dennis Stosberg <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

+ These two options affect how the objects contained in the pack are
stored using delta compression. The objects are first internally
sorted by type, size and optionally names and compared against the
other objects within `--window` to see if using delta compression saves
space. `--depth` limits the maximum delta depth; making it too deep
affects the performance on the unpacker side, because delta data needs
to be applied that many times to get to the necessary object.
+ The default value for both --window and --depth is 10.
