Just a small one, and that's that I'd prefer the option to have help
display in my terminal (that option might exist and I don't know how
to turn it on). That would be very convenient for me.

Opening a nice HTML page is probably nice for a lot of users. What
frustrates me about it is that I don't know which browser window on
which monitor (of 3) it's going to open in, so it's a context-switch
to a different window somewhere that I don't have much control over.

The thing I find easier about using the upstream documentation is just
that I can pick the browser window I want it to come up in, and it's
usually faster enough for me to just google "git-whatever" or
re-purpose an open doc tab. I don't prefer the _content_ of the
upstream documentation, it's just less frustrating for me to use, if
that makes sense.
