Merge branch 'nd/command-list'
The list of commands with their various attributes were spread across a few places in the build procedure, but it now is getting a bit more consolidated to allow more automation. * nd/command-list: completion: allow to customize the completable command list completion: add and use --list-cmds=alias completion: add and use --list-cmds=nohelpers Move declaration for alias.c to alias.h completion: reduce completable command list completion: let git provide the completable command list command-list.txt: documentation and guide line help: use command-list.txt for the source of guides help: add "-a --verbose" to list all commands with synopsis git: support --list-cmds=list-<category> completion: implement and use --list-cmds=main,others git --list-cmds: collect command list in a string_list git.c: convert --list-* to --list-cmds=* Remove common-cmds.h help: use command-list.h for common command list export all commands to command-list.h factor out synopsis extract code
