help: add "-a --verbose" to list all commands with synopsis
This lists all recognized commands [1] by category. The group order follows closely git.txt. [1] We may actually show commands that are not built (e.g. if you set NO_PERL you don't have git-instaweb but it's still listed here). I ignore the problem because on Linux a git package could be split anyway. The "git-core" package may not contain git-instaweb even if it's built because it may end up in a separate package. We can't know anyway. Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
