The old Git version where it appeared is not useful only to historians, not to normal users. Also, the text was mentioning only the per-repo config file, so add a mention of ~/.gitconfig. Describing in details the system-wide, XDG and all would be counter-productive here, so reword the description of the link to git-config to make it clear that it is not only a list of configuration options.
