Re: [PATCH v6 4/7] checkout: describe_detached_head: remove ellipsis after committish




We do not want an ellipsis displayed following an (abbreviated) SHA-1
value.

The days when this was necessary to indicate the truncation to
lower-level Git commands and/or the user are bygone.

However, to ease the transition, the ellipsis will still be printed if
the user sets the environment variable GIT_PRINT_SHA1_ELLIPSIS to "yes".

Correct documentation with respect to what describe_detached_head prints
when GIT_PRINT_SHA1_ELLIPSIS is not set as indicated above.

Add tests for the old and new behaviour.

v2: rename patch series & focus on removal of ellipses
v3: env var instead of config option, use one-line comments where appropriate, preserve indent level
v4: improve env var handling (rename, helper func to query, docu)
v5: rewrite series to take Junio's comments in <xmqqd145k9td.fsf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> aboard
v6: polish to take Junio's comments from <xmqqshcqmoe7.fsf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> into account
