Subject: [PATCH 2/2] blame: document --color-* options
Date: Fri,  8 Oct 2021 11:33:43 +0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20211008043343.189651-3-bagasdotme@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20211008043343.189651-1-bagasdotme@gmail.com>

Commit cdc2d5f11f1a (builtin/blame: dim uninteresting metadata lines,
2018-04-23) and 25d5f52901f0 (builtin/blame: highlight recently changed
lines, 2018-04-23) introduce --color-lines and --color-by-age options to
git blame, respectively. While both options are mentioned in usage help,
they aren't documented in git-blame(1). Document them.
