In the rendered version, this looks like:

        The The Git User's Manual[1] has a more in-depth introduction.

Presumably the first "The" should be dropped from either the link or
the surrounding text.

This comes out as

        ... you may prefer to start with "A Tutorial Instruction to Git"
        (gittutorial(7)) or The Git User's Manual[1].

The capital 'T' in "The" looks a bit strange, but a lowercase 't' in
the corresponding footnote would also look strange.  We can't have
everything, I guess.

A possible fix would be to drop the "The" from the link.  The way you
have it here also seems fine.

Doubled 'The'.

Isn't the old title more informative?
