[PATCH] PATCH Documentation/git-rev-list.txt typo fix
An earlier commit causes a mismatch in <emphasis> and <superscript> tags, one way of fixing it is having no more than one caret symbol per line, which is the only solution I found in the asciidoc documentation. Ugly, but it works. [jc: ugly indeed but that is not Peter's fault.] Signed-off-by: Peter Hagervall <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

The *--bisect* flag limits output to the one commit object which is
roughly halfway between the included and excluded commits. Thus,
-if 'git-rev-list --bisect foo ^bar ^baz' outputs 'midpoint', the output
-of 'git-rev-list foo ^midpoint' and 'git-rev-list midpoint ^bar ^baz'
+if 'git-rev-list --bisect foo ^bar
+^baz' outputs 'midpoint', the output
+of 'git-rev-list foo ^midpoint' and 'git-rev-list midpoint
would be of roughly the same length. Finding the change which introduces
a regression is thus reduced to a binary search: repeatedly generate and
test new 'midpoint's until the commit chain is of length one.
