Subject: [PATCH 3/3] git.txt: add list of guides
Date: Sun, 02 Aug 2020 15:20:47 +0000
Message-ID: <9374d80f0c37a6b6a7f5f76601ee757f89712d0c.1596381647.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.691.git.1596381647.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Philippe Blain <levraiphilippeblain@gmail.com>

Not all guides are mentioned in the 'git(1)' documentation,
which makes the missing ones somewhat hard to find.

Add a list of the guides to git(1).

Tweak `Documentation/cmd-list.perl` so that it also generates
a file `cmds-guide.txt` which gets included in git.txt.

Also, do not hard-code the manual section '1'. Instead, use a regex so
that the manual section is discovered from the first line of each
`git*.txt` file.

This addition was hinted at in 1b81d8cb19 (help: use command-list.txt for
the source of guides, 2018-05-20).
