Docs: split up pull-fetch-param.txt
The push and pull man pages include a bunch of shared text from pull-fetch-param.txt. This simplifies maintenance somewhat, but there's actually quite a bit of text that applies only to one or the other. So, separate out the push- and pull/fetch-specific text into pull-fetch-param.txt and git-push.txt, then include the largest chunk of common stuff (the description of protocols and url's) from urls.txt. That cuts some irrelevant stuff from the man pages without making us duplicate too much. Signed-off-by: J. Bruce Fields <bfields@citi.umich.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
