 DESCRIPTION
 -----------
 
-List commits that are reachable by following the `parent` links from the
-given commit(s), but exclude commits that are reachable from the one(s)
-given with a '{caret}' in front of them.  The output is given in reverse
-chronological order by default.
-
-You can think of this as a set operation.  Commits given on the command
-line form a set of commits that are reachable from any of them, and then
-commits reachable from any of the ones given with '{caret}' in front are
-subtracted from that set.  The remaining commits are what comes out in the
-command's output.  Various other options and paths parameters can be used
-to further limit the result.
-
-Thus, the following command:
-
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-	$ git rev-list foo bar ^baz
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-means "list all the commits which are reachable from 'foo' or 'bar', but
-not from 'baz'".
-
-A special notation "'<commit1>'..'<commit2>'" can be used as a
-short-hand for "{caret}'<commit1>' '<commit2>'". For example, either of
-the following may be used interchangeably:
-
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-	$ git rev-list origin..HEAD
-	$ git rev-list HEAD ^origin
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-Another special notation is "'<commit1>'...'<commit2>'" which is useful
-for merges.  The resulting set of commits is the symmetric difference
-between the two operands.  The following two commands are equivalent:
-
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-	$ git rev-list A B --not $(git merge-base --all A B)
-	$ git rev-list A...B
------------------------------------------------------------------------

 'rev-list' is a very essential Git command, since it
 provides the ability to build and traverse commit ancestry graphs. For
