notes: correct documentation of DWIMery for notes references
expand_notes_ref is used by --ref from git-notes(1) and --notes from the git log to find the full refname of a notes reference. Previously the documentation of these options was not clear about what sorts of expansions would be performed. Fix the documentation to clearly and accurately describe the behavior of the expansions. Add a test for this expansion when using git notes get-ref in order to prevent future patches from changing this behavior. Signed-off-by: Jacob Keller <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
