ec55559 (push: Add support for pre-push hooks, 2013-01-13) forgot to
add a note to git-push(1) about the new --no-verify option.

Signed-off-by: Thomas Rast <>

Junio replied privately that it should also mention the --verify

So why not.  But this needs to be fixed across the board eventually;
0f1930c (parse-options: allow positivation of options starting, with
no-, 2012-02-25) did not update any docs, so none of the other --no-
options mention their positive forms.
