Hi,

Interesting.

I think what would help most is an example set of commands I can use
to reproduce this (bonus points if in the form of a test).

I'm having some trouble with the formatting here.  Is the part
preceded by '>' a quote, and if so a quote from what?

nit: it can be useful to have a blank line before and after such
example output to help both my eyes and tools like "git log
--format='%w(100)%b'" to understand the formatting.

A more typical example would be if the ref simply doesn't exist (i.e.,
is a branch yet to be born).

Is keeping the '||' at the end of this line intended?

Should this error message be changed?

Thanks,
