I recall that I wanted to see this change happen myself long time
ago, and suspect that there may have been some reason that prevented
us from doing so.  I might have found that AsciiDoc back then did
not like the input if the headline name "git-checkout(1)" did not
match the filename "git-checkout.txt" and the command in the NAME
section "git-checkout", or links "linkgit:git-checkout[1]" from
other pages couldn't have SP there, or something silly like that.

Also doesn't our build infrastructure slurp the one-line description
"git-checkout - Checkout a branch ..." from these files and expect a
dash to be there?

In short, I personally do prefer to see dashless form at the top of
the manpage, if it does not break other things, and there may need
changes necessary to avoid breaking other things may to files other
than these documentation-proper source files.

diff --git a/Documentation/git-checkout.txt b/Documentation/git-checkout.txt
index ca118ac..8d98383 100644
--- a/Documentation/git-checkout.txt
+++ b/Documentation/git-checkout.txt
@@ -1,9 +1,9 @@
+git checkout(1)

I wonder if it wouldn't be better to leave as is, in dashed form,
as the manpage file name is git-checkout.1, and this manpage is
invoked as "man git-checkout", not "man git checkout"
or "man 'git checkout'".

-git-checkout - Checkout a branch or paths to the working tree
+git checkout - Checkout a branch or paths to the working tree


But change this, as we use this command as "git checkout", not
as "git-checkout".
