Document git-gui, git-citool as mainporcelain manual pages
Jakub Narebski pointed out that the git-gui blame viewer is not a widely known feature, but is incredibly useful. Part of the issue is advertising. Up until now we haven't even referenced git-gui from within the core Git manual pages, mostly because I just wasn't sure how I wanted to supply git-gui documentation to end-users, or how that documentation should integrate with the core Git documentation. Based upon Jakub's comment that many users may not even know that the gui is available in a stock Git distribution I'm offering up two basic manual pages: git-citool and git-gui. These should offer enough of a starting point for users to identify that the gui exists, and how to start it. Future releases of git-gui may contain their own documentation system available from within a running git-gui. But not today. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
