Agreed.  The backslash is unnecessary (I suspect it's something

I agree that the "confusion" paragraph after [--] [<path>] can be
improved, but putting [--] in a paragraph of its own sounds like an
overkill.  Apart from other things, it means that every single git
command would need an identical [--] paragraph for consistency.  We
can just keep the footnote following [--] [<path>] in some commands,
using discretion.
