git-subtree and its documentation are in the contrib/subtree
directory.  contrib/subtree/Makefile includes rules to build
a manpage for it.

If the homebrew rules are installing the git-subtree command
from there, perhaps they could be tweaked to build the manpage,
too.  What do you think?

Alternatively: I'm not sure what the status of git-subtree
maintenance is.  Is there someone taking active enough care
of it that it would make sense to promote it out of contrib/
to be a full git command installed by default?
