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.

2008-03-25Documentation/git-checkout: Update summary to reflect current abilitiesJulian Phillips
For a while now, git-checkout has been more powerful than the man-page summary would suggest (the main text does describe the new features), so update the summary to hopefully better reflect the current functionality. Also update the glossary description of the word checkout. Signed-off-by: Julian Phillips <julian@quantumfyre.co.uk> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2008-01-07Documentation: rename gitlink macro to linkgitDan McGee
Between AsciiDoc 8.2.2 and 8.2.3, the following change was made to the stock Asciidoc configuration: @@ -149,7 +153,10 @@ # Inline macros. # Backslash prefix required for escape processing. # (?s) re flag for line spanning. -(?su)[\\]?(?P<name>\w(\w|-)*?):(?P<target>\S*?)(\[(?P<attrlist>.*?)\])= + +# Explicit so they can be nested. +(?su)[\\]?(?P<name>(http|https|ftp|file|mailto|callto|image|link)):(?P<target>\S*?)(\[(?P<attrlist>.*?)\])= + # Anchor: [[[id]]]. Bibliographic anchor. (?su)[\\]?\[\[\[(?P<attrlist>[\w][\w-]*?)\]\]\]=anchor3 # Anchor: [[id,xreflabel]] This default regex now matches explicit values, and unfortunately in this case gitlink was being matched by just 'link', causing the wrong inline macro template to be applied. By renaming the macro, we can avoid being matched by the wrong regex. Signed-off-by: Dan McGee <dpmcgee@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

2007-05-26Documentation: Clean up links in GIT GlossaryJakub Narebski

2007-05-18glossary: expand and clarify some definitions, prune cross-referencesJ. Bruce Fields
Revise and expand some of the definitions in the glossary, based in part on a recent thread started by a user looking for help with some of the jargon. I've borrowed some of the language from Linus's email on that thread. (I'm assuming standing permission to plagiarize Linus's email....) Also start making a few changes to mitigate the appearance of "circularity" mentioned in that thread: - feel free to use somewhat longer definitions and to explain some things more than once instead of relying purely on cross-references - don't use cross-references when they're redundant: eliminate self-references and repeated references to the same entry.

2007-03-19glossary: stop generating automaticallyJ. Bruce Fields
The sort_glossary.pl script sorts the glossary, checks for duplicates, and automatically adds cross-references. But it's not so hard to do all that by hand, and sometimes the automatic cross-references are a little wrong; so let's run the script one last time and check in its output. Note: to make the output fit better into the user manual I also deleted the acknowledgements at the end, which was maybe a little rude; feel free to object and I can find a different solution.

2007-01-01Documentation: update glossary entry for "origin"J. Bruce Fields
Update glossary entry for "origin" to reflect fact that it normally now refers to a remote repository, not a branch. Also, warning not to work on remote-tracking branches is no longer necessary since git doesn't allow that. Signed-off-by: J.
