For example, if you have two branches, `A` and `B`, a usual way
to list all commits on only one side of them is with
-`--left-right`, like the example above in the description of
-that option. It however shows the commits that were cherry-picked
+`--left-right` (see the example below in the description of
+the `--left-right` option). It however shows the commits that were cherry-picked
from the other branch (for example, "3rd on b" may be cherry-picked
from branch A). With this option, such pairs of commits are
excluded from the output.
