2010-10-14Documentation: gitrevisions is in section 7Jonathan Nieder
Fix references to gitrevisions(1) in the manual pages and HTML documentation. In practice, this will not matter much unless someone tries to use a hard copy of the git reference manual. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2010-08-20Documentation: avoid stray backslashes in core tutorialJonathan Nieder
While at it: - remove some single-quotes that were being rendered as ’\n\'; - do not escape ellipses (...) when they do not represent the literal three characters "...". We may want to ensure the manpages render these as three ASCII periods to make the manual pages easier to search, but that would be a global output generation setting, not a context-specific thing; Reported-by: Frédéric Brière <fbriere@fbriere.net> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2010-07-05Documentation: link to gitrevisions rather than git-rev-parseMichael J Gruber
Currently, whenever we need documentation for revisions and ranges, we link to the git-rev-parse man page, i.e. a plumbing man page, which has this along with the documentation of all rev-parse modes. Link to the new gitrevisions man page instead in all cases except - when the actual git-rev-parse command is referred to or - in very technical context (git-send-pack).

2010-01-17Documentation: Update git core tutorial clarifying reference to scriptsRamkumar Ramachandra

2010-01-10Documentation: spell 'git cmd' without dash throughoutThomas Rast
The documentation was quite inconsistent when spelling 'git cmd' if it only refers to the program, not to some specific invocation syntax: both 'git-cmd' and 'git cmd' spellings exist. The current trend goes towards dashless forms, and there is precedent in 647ac70 (git-svn.txt: stop using dash-form of commands., 2009-07-07) to actively eliminate the dashed variants. Replace 'git-cmd' with 'git cmd' throughout, except where git-shell, git-cvsserver, git-upload-pack, git-receive-pack, and git-upload-archive are concerned, because those really live in the $PATH.

2009-11-25t1200: fix a timing dependent errorNanako Shiraishi
The fourth test of show-branch in t1200 test was failing but only sometimes. It only failed when two commits created in an earlier test had different timestamps. When they were created within the same second, the actual output matched the expected output. Fix this by using test_tick to force reliable timestamps and update the expected output so it does not to depend on the commits made in the same sacond.

2009-08-12Change mentions of "git programs" to "git commands"Ori Avtalion
Most of the docs and printouts refer to "commands" when discussing what the end users call via the "git" top-level program. We should refer them as "git programs" when we discuss the fact that the commands are implemented as separate programs, but in other contexts, it is better to use the term "git commands" consistently.

2008-11-17Documentation: tutorial: add information about "git help" at the beginningChristian Couder
Talking about "git help" is useful because it has a few more features (like when using it without arguments or with "-a") and it may work on non unix like platforms.

2008-08-12Adjust for the new way of enabling the default post-update hookPetr Baudis
The post-update hook, which is required to be enabled in order for the repository to be accessible over HTTP, is not enabled by chmod a+x anymore, but instead by dropping the .sample suffix. This patch emphasizes this change in the release notes (since I believe this is rather noticeable backwards-incompatible change). It also adjusts the documentation which still described the old way and fixes t/t5540-http-push.sh, which was broken for 1.5 month but apparently noone ever runs this test.

2008-07-05manpages: italicize nongit command names (if they are in teletype font)Jonathan Nieder
Some manual pages use teletype font to set command names. We change them to use italics, instead. This creates a visual distinction between names of commands and command lines that can be typed at the command line. It is also more consistent with other man pages outside Git. In this patch, the commands named are non-git commands like bash. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@uchicago.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2008-07-05manpages: italicize gitk's name (where it was in teletype font)Jonathan Nieder
The name `gitk` is sometimes meant to be entered at the command prompt, but most uses are just referring to the program with that name (not the incantation to start it). Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@uchicago.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2008-07-05manpages: italicize git command names (which were in teletype font)Jonathan Nieder
The names of git commands are not meant to be entered at the commandline; they are just names. So we render them in italics, as is usual for command names in manpages. Using doit () { perl -e 'for (<>) { s/\`(git-[^\`.]*)\`/'\''\1'\''/g; print }' } for i in git*.txt config.txt diff*.txt blame*.txt fetch*.txt i18n.txt \ merge*.txt pretty*.txt pull*.txt rev*.txt urls*.txt do doit <"$i" >"$i+" && mv "$i+" "$i" done git diff .

2008-07-05Documentation: more "git-" versus "git " changesJonathan Nieder
With git-commands moving out of $(bindir), it is useful to make a clearer distinction between the git subcommand 'git-whatever' and the command you type, `git whatever <options>`. So we use a dash after "git" when referring to the former and not the latter. I already sent a patch doing this same thing, but I missed some spots.

2008-07-02Documentation formatting and cleanupJonathan Nieder
Following what appears to be the predominant style, format names of commands and commandlines both as `teletype text`. While we're at it, add articles ("a" and "the") in some places, italicize the name of the command in the manual page synopsis line, and add a comma or two where it seems appropriate.

2008-07-02Documentation: be consistent about "git-" versus "git "Jonathan Nieder
Since the git-* commands are not installed in $(bindir), using "git-command <parameters>" in examples in the documentation is not a good idea. On the other hand, it is nice to be able to refer to each command using one hyphenated word. (There is no escaping it, anyway: man page names cannot have spaces in them.) This patch retains the dash in naming an operation, command, program, process, or action. Complete command lines that can be entered at a shell (i.e., without options omitted) are made to use the dashless form. The changes consist only of replacing some spaces with hyphens and vice versa. After a "s/ /-/g", the unpatched and patched versions are identical. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@uchicago.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2008-07-02Documentation: fix links to tutorials and other new manual pagesJonathan Nieder

2008-06-06documentation: move git(7) to git(1)Christian Couder

2008-06-06documentation: convert "diffcore" and "repository-layout" to man pagesChristian Couder
This patch renames the following documents and at the same time converts them to the man format: diffcore.txt -> gitdiffcore.txt (man section 7) repository-layout.txt -> gitrepository-layout.txt (man section 5) Other documents that reference the above ones are changed accordingly.

2008-06-02Documentation: convert "glossary" and "core-tutorial" to man pagesChristian Couder
This patch renames the following documents and at the same time converts them to the man format: core-tutorial.txt -> gitcore-tutorial.txt glossary.txt -> gitglossary.txt But as the glossary is included in the user manual and as the new gitglossary man page cannot be included as a whole in the user manual, the actual glossary content is now in its own "glossary-content.txt" new file. And this file is included by both the user manual and the gitglossary man page. Other documents that reference the above ones are changed accordingly and sometimes improved a little too.
