Fix typos in documentation and code comments which repeat various words.
These typos were found by searching using scripts like this:

	for w in $(grep '^....$' /usr/share/dict/words)
	do
		git grep -P "\b$w $w\b"
	done

I'm not sure what to put as the "area: " prefix for this patch, as it touches
both docs and code comments.

All the other fixes for duplicate words look "obviously correct", but
in this case, the duplicate "that that" is likely intentional and
grammatically sensible, so perhaps drop this hunk from the patch?

Other than the 'that that' in t6416-recursive-corner-cases.sh everything
looks obviously correct.

Not every patch needs to have an area, but when there's no area you
need to use uppercase.

Thanks to Felipe Contreras for review.

Changes from v1:

  - added "*: " as area prefix to follow example of Derrick Stolee
    https://lore.kernel.org/git/c40ad4a058a75d57adc97b8252ad0f57600b8d86.1623085069.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com/
  - Dropped change in t/t6416-recursive-corner-cases.sh where I misread a
    sentence and the duplicated word "that" is used correctly. Quote for
    reference:

      ... so we use one path whose name is arbitrary in the virtual merge base X
      between D and E" and then further let the rename detection to notice that
      that arbitrary path gets renamed ...

    where first "that" is a conjunction between clauses "we let" and "path gets
    renamed" and second "that" is a determiner to qualify "arbitrary path" to
    refer to "one path" mentioned in the first clause

I think Derrick started this use of "*:" prefix to mean "not limited
to any particular area, but applies to everything" and it makes
sense.

Thanks.

This is clarifying and somewhat puzzling at the same time.

It says that doubled words that span across line folding, and
doubled words that do not have exactly a single space in between,
have gone undetected (which is fine and may be useful information)
by showing that it grepped for lines that has doubled words.  But it
also says that you only looked for four-letter words, which I do not
believe is the case (you fixed "the the", for example), which is
misleading.  The "like this" part can be an excuse for that
inaccuracy, but then the whole thing pretty much has already been
summarized nicely with your first line already, i.e. "which repeate
various words".  If you update it the end part of the sentence to
"which repeat various words on the same line", then the entire
paragaph can go without losing clarity.

Not a huge deal, though.

The changes themselves all look good to me.  Thanks.  Will apply.

Indeed. Basically, it was several scripts with different lists
of words.  I considered writing:

  	for w in <list of words>
  	do
  		git grep -P "\b$w $w\b"
  	done

but opted for an explicit example of a script used, which may
be reused later.

Since v2, I've written a script to also check sentences which span
several lines.  I'll send out a v3 with a bunch more fixes.

Fix typos in documentation, code comments, and RelNotes which repeat
various words.  In trivial cases, just delete the duplicated word and
rewrap text, if needed.  Reword the affected sentence in
Documentation/RelNotes/1.8.4.txt for it to make sense.

Thanks.  I usually avoid touching published release notes (it is not
like we'd issue 1.8.4.1 maintenance release to apply this typofix),
but as you spent time to fix them all, and as we spent time to review
the changes, let's take all of them.

I think this one actually wanted to say "affected later X to take
the user to an unexpected place", but ", which" is OK, too.

Thanks.
