Subject: [PATCH 01/11] git-parse-remote: fix highly misleading man page
Date: Thu, 11 May 2017 15:47:37 +0200 (CEST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <b26882e61ef466c787b575d3fd60bfeec8a9281a.1494509599.git.johannes.schindelin@gmx.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1494509599.git.johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

The man page still talked about the .git/remotes/ directory (which is no
longer in use, as of 75c384efb52 (Do not create $GIT_DIR/remotes/
directory anymore., 2006-12-19)).

Let's just revamp it almost completely to reflect the *purpose* of that
scriptlet, as opposed to its implementation details.
