Before this description, -d option talks about a different Git
repository; s/git/Git/ is needed there.

Shouldn't this be "Git symbolic link"?

This is *wrong*. It refers to the name of the repository whose
natural name is "git", as most people get it by
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git
and telling the users to do
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git-htmldocs.git
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git-manpages.git
in the same directory as they cloned git.git into (i.e. have these
two next to their clone of git.git, which is typically called "git").
I'll revert this part.

This should be "you have not told Git about".

The description before this hunk begins with "Lets you rewrite git
version history", which you need s/git/Git/.

Unrelated to the topic of this series, but didn't GNU patch add this
recently? Somebody needs a fact-check and may have to update the
above with something like "prior to GNU patch x.y..."

If a git command is named, a manual page for that...
It is trying to refer to things like "cat-file" as "git command"
(even though technically I would call them "subcommands"), and I
would say "cat-file" is a subcommand of the system whose whole is
known as "Git". So I think s/git/Git/ is warranted here.

Not a problem with this conversion, but I think "pointing to the
specified [gG]it path" should be without "[gG]it". There is nothing
specially Git about the path to the directory the user specifies. It
is just an ordinary filesystem path.
I'll try to fix all of the above up locally and re-queue, so please
eyeball the results once it is pushed out.
