command output has changed for some commands in the last years,
so reflect this also in the user-manual. While doing so, fix some minor
spelling, formatting and wording issues.
Further, some references and recommendations which nowadays might
only confuse and not help new Git users where removed. Also some
explanations where rephrased to IMHO make them easier to understand
for new users.
The last patch removes a lengthy paragraph which states that "git prune"
(and "git fsck") should only be used in a quiescent repository. The
man-page for "git prune" tells nothing about this. So either the
removal should be OK or we have to duplicate the warning paragraph
in the man-page of "git prune"?
