Re-worded the section on "Updating a repository with git fetch" in the
Various other minor fixes in the manual and glossary.
Signed-off-by: Jeremiah Mahler <jmmah...@gmail.com>
This revision includes suggestions from Chris Packham, Ben Aveling
and Junio C Hamano .
- The changes to the "git fetch" section have been reduced.
- Kept the first sentence which Junio liked.
- Kept the second sentence as Chris had it originally except for
swapping 'command `git fetch` with '`git fetch` command' and
using 'original repository' instead of 'her repository'.
'original repository' agrees with the sentence before it.
- Other minor edits are the same as the previous version.
