I don't like how 's man pages waste my time by focussing too much on how a git command does what it does. Rather than stating upfront what the command does for me, the docs ezpect me to reverse engineer purpose from functional description. Feels like I'm reading a tech spec instead of a user manual.

And man pages which address the reader with "you" are just weird now that I'm used to OpenBSD man pages where trying to converse with the reader like that is explicitly forbidden.

@stsp just import git into base and wait for a "tweak previous" commit by jmc@?
