OK, I think the two patches are better squashed into one; in the larger picture, it really does not matter where the problem originated from. Here is what I tentatively queued with copyedited log message. -- >8 -- From: Motoki Seki <marmot.mot...@gmail.com> Date: Thu, 22 Feb 2018 08:52:25 +0000 Subject: [PATCH] Documentation/gitsubmodules.txt: avoid non-ASCII apostrophes In gitsubmodules.txt, a few non-ASCII apostrophes are used to spell possessive, e.g. "submodule's". These unfortunately are not rendered at https://git-scm.com/docs/gitsubmodules correctly by the renderer used there. Use ASCII apostrophes instead to work around the problem. It also is good to be consistent, as there are possessives spelled with ASCII apostrophes.
