$ git log -p | git shortlog Documentation/ is also a nonsense request. When outside a repository, i.e. $ git -C $path_to_repo | git shortlog Documentation/ is not giving any revisions, so the error message should not say "no revisions can be given"---a nitpicky bug reporter would say "I gave no revisions, why are you complaining to me?"
