I do not have an objection against the creation of giteveryday.txt;
I was questioning the way the original everyday.txt was left behind
to bit-rot.  It is good to keep _something_ there, because there may
be old URLs floating around that point at Documentation/everyday.txt,
but the contents of that file does not have to be a stale copy.

Cf. bd4a3d61 (Rename {git- => git}remote-helpers.txt, 2013-01-31)
for how we renamed git-remote-helpers.txt to gitremote-helpers.txt
