+gitrevisions - specifying revisions and ranges for git
+Many Git commands take revision parameters as arguments. Depending on
+the command, they denote a specific commit or, for commands which
+walk the revision graph (such as linkgit:git-log[1]), all commits which can
+be reached from that commit. In the latter case one can also specify a
+range of revisions explicitly.
+In addition, some Git commands (such as linkgit:git-show[1]) also take
+revision parameters which denote other objects than commits, e.g. blobs
+("files") or trees ("directories of files").
+Part of the linkgit:git[1] suite
