Message-ID: <251d06e27f6bc93b190450ae6e1087a3126b5e52.1572895605.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.445.git.1572895605.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Alexandr Miloslavskiy <alexandr.miloslavskiy@syntevo.com>

Synchronize it to `git add`, which has a pretty good description.
This also better disambiguates <file>... header.
