(continuing from my 1/2 review)  And if people agree that the format
gitk already uses is better, this text should probably read more
like:

    If you want to reference a previous commit in the history of a
    stable branch, use the format "abbreviated sha1 (subject, date)",
    with the subject enclosed in a pair of double-quotes, like this:

        Commit f86a374 ("pack-bitmap.c: fix a memleak", 2015-03-30)
        noticed that ...

    The "Copy commit summary" command of gitk can be used to obtain this
    format.
