Thanks. So it would be a mistake to translate "revision" and "commit"
with the same word. This would hide the special meaning of revision and
the user wouldn't see that there's a difference.
I'll amend the commit which unifys the translation of "revision" and "commit"
in the way that "revision" will be translated as "Revision" in the whole file.
I'll also update the glossary.
