Every single version control tool out there has default aliases (e.g.
co = checkout) except Git.
Every argument against default aliases was basically refuted, yet my
patches went nowhere. And the users still expect these aliases.
+1 about having default aliases in general, and I'd also add these:
br = branch
cp = cherry-pick
dt = difftool
mt = mergetool
BTW, in my experience people tend to stick to predefined aliases instead
of redefining them to something (completely) different. This means that
having default aliases will very likely enable one to use the same short
commands on one's colleague's PC (instead of you running into issues
because the same alias was defined to a different command).
If we don't standardize this now people will come up with their own
definitions   (and many others if you just search GitHub) which
are again likely to differ (slightly), hindering interoperability.
