Yuck. I could say it's not our problem that others spread something
we didn't document ;-) but I am too nice to say that.

Let's do this, then, but you have to sign off your patch.

Subject: [PATCH] man: git pull -r is a short for --rebase

Letting the "--rebase" option squat on the short-and-sweet single
letter option "-r" was an unintended accident and was not even

wild. Let's document it so that other options that begin with "r"
would not be tempted to steal it.
