By "has been considered", I meant that the documentation text is still open for improvement. I just didn't find rewording "commit" with "commit revision" is that improvement we need there. Perhaps we need to have somewhere central a section that explains various notations used in the documentation set. I think it is safe to say something like "unless otherwise qualified, <commit> (or any object type in an angle-bracket-pair) is used as a placeholder to take any acceptable way to spell object names (cf. gitrevisions for details)" these days [*1*]. [Footnote] *1* In ancient days I think some plumbing commands only took 40-hex object names, but as far as I know they've all been updated. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
