Dear sir or madam,

At:
https://git-scm.com/docs/git-commit#git-commit---long

you can read:
When doing a dry-run, give the output in a the long-format.

 From my point of view it should read:
When doing a dry-run, give the output in the long-format.



Furthermore in the file:
./Documentation/gitremote-helpers.txt

you can read:
As the a push option

It should be changed to:
As the push option



Additionally in the file:
./ci/run-windows-build.sh

please change:
# Script to trigger the a Git for Windows build and test run.

to:
# Script to trigger the Git for Windows build and test run.



And in the file:
./diff.c

change:
  *   1. collect a the minus/plus lines of a diff hunk, divided into

to:
  *   1. collect the minus/plus lines of a diff hunk, divided into

Thanks a lot in advance for fixing these minor typos.

Kind regards,

Thanks for spotting the errors!

Care to craft a patch and send it upstream yourself?
See https://github.com/git/git/blob/master/Documentation/SubmittingPatches
how to approach it.
TL;DR:
    git clone https://github.com/git/git
    # hack hack hack
    git commit
    git format-patch HEAD^
    # use e.g. git send-email to send the patch to the mailing list

Thanks,
Stefan

To be honest I started to read the mentioned website, was intimidated and decided to sent an email.

Alright, what could possibly go wrong? I will do it.

Hi Stefan,

I submitted the patch to the mailing list.
Based on my experience I submitted another patch to improve the documentation.

Thank you for guiding me.
