Ok, I will send a new patch with the updated commit message. .

Sorry, but I don't think so. In cache.h, the following functions have been 
as externs,
extern int git_config_rename_section()
extern int git_config_rename_section_in_file()

Thus, they seem to be the part of the API. In most of the technical API docs I 
read there is at least a description of all parameters of the main function 
relevant data structures if any.
Also a certain amount of redundancy about details is allowed.

A good example is api-hashmap.txt which provides detailed descriptions of each
function and data structure which was very much helpful to me.

Reverse is api-string-list.txt which was useless to me, so I had to go through
the whole code to understand how to use it.

Thanks for the review.
