Subject: [PATCH 0/2] document alias accepting non-command first word
Date: Fri, 31 May 2019 16:23:01 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <cover.1559333840.git.liu.denton@gmail.com> (raw)

When I first saw Johannes' email here[1], I was surprised that an alias
where the first-word is a command-line option to be passed into `git`
was permitted. I was only used to aliases where the first word is a
command.

Document this behaviour so that users will be able to discover that this
is a feature.
