Refer users to git-rev-parse for revision specification syntax.
The revision specification syntax (sometimes referred to as SHA1-expressions) is accepted almost everywhere in Git by almost every tool. Unfortunately it is only documented in git-rev-parse.txt, and most users don't know to look there. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
