+ Alias for a --pretty= format string, as specified in
+ linkgit:git-log[1]. Any aliases defined here can be used just
+ as the built-in pretty formats could. For example,
+ running `git config pretty.changelog "format:* %H %s"`
+ would cause the invocation `git log --pretty=changelog`
+ to be equivalent to running `git log "--pretty=format:* %H %s"`.
+ Note that an alias with the same name as a built-in format
+ will be silently ignored.
