"man git-config", "--list" option misleadingly refers to "config file" (singular)





  (i suppose that if i'm going to continue whining about stuff, i might
as well clone the git source and start submitting patches.)

  in "man git-config":

    -l
    --list
          List all variables set in config file, along with their values.
                                           ^^^^

except that, AIUI, "git config --list" will list the combination of all
config values in (if it exists) /etc/gitconfig, then the user's global
settings, and finally the repo's config settings if one happens to be
in a working directory, so technically, it lists the contents of *all* of
the config files (plural), no?

  i can submit a patch to clarify that, unless there's some weird definition
of "config file" that implicitly means the combination of all of them.
