Documentation: gitrevisions
Create a new man page gitrevisions(7) which contains the revsions and ranges documentation but not more. This uses (per include) the same bits as the pertaining section of git-rev-parse(1). Signed-off-by: Michael J Gruber <git@drmicha.warpmail.net> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

+================

+NAME
+----
+gitrevisions - specifying revisions and ranges for git
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+gitrevisions
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+Many Git commands take revision parameters as arguments. Depending on
+the command, they denote a specific commit or, for commands which
+walk the revision graph (such as linkgit:git-log[1]), all commits which can
+be reached from that commit. In the latter case one can also specify a
+range of revisions explicitly.
+
+In addition, some Git commands (such as linkgit:git-show[1]) also take
+revision parameters which denote other objects than commits, e.g. blobs
+("files") or trees ("directories of files").
