+Unshelve
+~~~~~~~~
+Unshelving will take a shelved P4 changelist, and produce the equivalent git commit
+in the branch refs/remotes/p4/unshelved/<changelist>.
+
+The git commit is created relative to the current origin revision (HEAD by default).
+If the shelved changelist's parent revisions differ, git-p4 will refuse to unshelve;
+you need to be unshelving onto an equivalent tree.
+
+The origin revision can be changed with the "--origin" option.
+
+If the target branch in refs/remotes/p4/unshelved already exists, the old one will
+be renamed.
