2019-04-22Merge branch 'js/check-docs-exe'Junio C Hamano
Dev support update. * js/check-docs-exe: check-docs: fix for setups where executables have an extension check-docs: do not expect guide pages to correspond to commands check-docs: really look at the documented commands again docs: do not document the `git remote-testgit` command docs: move gitremote-helpers into section 7
2019-04-01docs: move gitremote-helpers into section 7Johannes Schindelin
It is currently in section 1, but that section is intended for "Executable programs or shell commands". A more appropriate place is section 7: "Miscellaneous (including macro packages and conventions), e.g. man(7), groff(7)". This issue should have been detected earlier by `make check-docs`, but was missed due to a bug in that Makefile target (that we are about to fix).

2018-05-02doc: keep first level section header in upper caseNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
When formatted as a man page, 1st section header is always in upper case even if we write it otherwise. Make all 1st section headers uppercase to keep it close to the final output. This does affect html since case is kept there, but I still think it's a good idea to maintain a consistent style for 1st section headers. Some sections perhaps should become second sections instead, where case is kept, and for better organization. I will update if anyone has suggestions about this. While at there I also make some header more consistent (e.g. examples vs example) and fix a couple minor things here and there. Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2014-11-11doc: add some crossrefs between manual pagesMax Horn
In particular, git-fast-import and -export link to each other, and gitremote-helpers links to existing remote helpers, and vice versa. Also link to fast-import from the remote helper spec, as this is relevant for remote helpers using the fast-import format. Signed-off-by: Max Horn <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2014-01-27doc: remote author/documentation sections from more pagesMichael Haggerty
We decided at 48bb914e (doc: drop author/documentation sections from most pages, 2011-03-11) to remove "author" and "documentation" sections from our documentation. Remove a few stragglers. Signed-off-by: Michael Haggerty <> Reviewed-by: Jonathan Nieder <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2011-07-06Documentation: use [verse] for SYNOPSIS sectionsMartin von Zweigbergk
The SYNOPSIS sections of most commands that span several lines already use [verse] to retain line breaks. Most commands that don't span several lines seem not to use [verse]. In the HTML output, [verse] does not only preserve line breaks, but also makes the section indented, which causes a slight inconsistency between commands that use [verse] and those that don't. Use [verse] in all SYNOPSIS sections for consistency. Also remove the blank lines from git-fetch.txt and git-rebase.txt to align with the other man pages. In the case of git-rebase.txt, which already uses [verse], the blank line makes the [verse] not apply to the last line, so removing the blank line also makes the formatting within the document more consistent. While at it, add single quotes to 'git cvsimport' for consistency with other commands. Signed-off-by: Martin von Zweigbergk <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2011-02-17Make <identifier> lowercase in DocumentationMichael J Gruber
Leaving uppercase abbreviations (e.g. URL) and an identifier named after an upercase env variable (CVSROOT) in place, this adjusts the few remaining cases and fixes an unidentified identifier along the way. Signed-off-by: Michael J Gruber <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2010-11-19remote-fd/ext: finishing touches after code reviewIlari Liusvaara
When compiling with pthread support, transport-helper.c needs to include necessary header files. Also fix a few error messages in remote-ext and remote-fd programs, and a potential buffer underrun in remote-fd. In the documentation, clarify how %G and %V are used; the old description looked as if they take repository/vhost parameters, which was wrong. Also fix AsciiDoc markup for the page title of remote-fd/remote-ext manpages, and tweak the way how section headers are shown. Signed-off-by: Ilari Liusvaara <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2010-10-13git-remote-extIlari Liusvaara
This remote helper invokes external command and passes raw smart transport stream through it. This is useful for instance for invoking ssh with one-off odd options, connecting to git services in unix domain sockets, in abstract namespace, using TLS or other secure protocols, etc...
