This is more about "stop using poor-man's small caps".

I think it misses "GIT - the stupid content tracker" in README, but
probably it is OK (it is not an end-user facing documentation).

I noticed that these two places still use poor-man's small caps
after this patch.

 * Documentation/SubmittingPatches:
 that are being emailed around. Although core GIT is a lot

 * Documentation/git-credential.txt:

With these two updated, I think it is a sensible change and the
patch is timed reasonably well.  It applies to 'maint', and other
topics in flight do not seem to add new uses of GIT.

Not commenting on other 5 patches in the series yet, but if they
interact with other topics in flight, they may have to be separated
out. We'll see.
