Subject: I've noticed the command `git --git-dir=<path> shortlog`

Hello everyone

OS: manjaro 20.2.1
git version: 2.30.0

I've noticed the command `git --git-dir=<path> shortlog`

It gives me some interesting output

$ git --git-dir=<path> shortlog --summary --email --numbered
--committer HEAD --end-of-options | wc -l

When run it, it will tell me how many committers on repo of <path>

But when run it on git repo dir, something interesting happened

$ git clone --bare
$ git clone

$ git --git-dir=./gitlabhq.git shortlog --summary --email --numbered
--committer HEAD --end-of-options | wc -l
> 2592

Ok, we can known the gitlab have 2592 committers on HEAD (refs/heads/master) ref

Then something magical happened

$ cd gitaly
$ git --git-dir=../gitlabhq.git shortlog --summary --email --numbered
--committer HEAD --end-of-options | wc -l
> 2587

Obviously these two outputs are inconsistent, and the second command
was affected by the `gitaly repo`

Shouldn't I use `--git-dir` to point to a bare repo? Or something else
went wrong?

Thank u!
