Hmm, if that is the case, I agree, but I was merely trying to review 
the files being changed - for example, inside "Documentation/git-add.txt":

       y - stage this hunk
       n - do not stage this hunk
       q - quit; do not stage this hunk or any of the remaining ones
       a - stage this hunk and all later hunks in the file
       d - do not stage this hunk or any of the later hunks in the file
       g - select a hunk to go to
       / - search for a hunk matching the given regex
       j - leave this hunk undecided, see next undecided hunk
       J - leave this hunk undecided, see next hunk
       k - leave this hunk undecided, see previous undecided hunk
       K - leave this hunk undecided, see previous hunk
       s - split the current hunk into smaller hunks
       e - manually edit the current hunk
       ? - print help


In there, adding "l" should follow "stage" phrasing, I would think.

But you are right for "git-add--interactive.perl", for example - in 
there, I didn`t notice the line (seems to be?) added inside the shared 
"help_patch_cmd".

But if so, I guess it should then be moved to more context-related 
"help_patch_modes", being phrased accordingly in there.

Thanks for pointing this out, let me recheck my comments.

Regards, Buga
