I wouldn't know for a fact, but I suspect that Keven assumed that "git
apply" *applies* the patch, and thus didn't read its manual page, since
it is clearly not relevant to his problem.  So it's probably better to
say:

    There are certain options to "git apply" which, despite the name of
    the function, do not apply the patch but rather display information
    about the patch, and some of those options list the files that the
    patch affects.
