standardize usage info string format
This patch puts the usage info strings that were not already in docopt- like format into docopt-like format, which will be a litle easier for end users and a lot easier for translators. Changes include: - Placing angle brackets around fill-in-the-blank parameters - Putting dashes in multiword parameter names - Adding spaces to [-f|--foobar] to make [-f | --foobar] - Replacing <foobar>* with [<foobar>...] Signed-off-by: Alex Henrie <> Reviewed-by: Matthieu Moy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
