To somewhat end this thread: I haven't been able to find a patch that really improves the documentation, because "Documentation/git-add.txt" has already been updated: commit 30784198b766b19a639c199e4365f2a805fc08c6 Author: Junio C Hamano <gits...@pobox.com> Date: Thu Feb 14 15:51:43 2013 -0800 Documentation/git-add: kill remaining <filepattern> -------------------- And all changes are here: http://git-htmldocs.googlecode.com/git/git-add.html But, look at https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-add.html This page seems to need an update too, and I wonder why: a) The makefile did'nt re-generate html even if it should have b) That page is not owned or updated by the git.git maintainer c) Any other reason? Does anybody know how to trigger an update at kernel.org? /Torsten -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
