I found the first sentence a little hard to parse, and there are a few
more details that might be worth mentioning:

  --edit <object>::
    Edit an object's content interactively. The existing content for
    <object> is pretty-printed into a temporary file, an editor is
    launched on the file, and the result is parsed to create a new
    object of the same type as <object>. A replacement ref is then
    created to replace <object> with the newly created object.

I do not know if it is worth mentioning git-commit and git-var here. But
if we want to, I think git-var is sufficient (git-commit seems to mostly
just points at git-var these days).
