Ah, I first thought that Documentation/rev-list-options.txt (which
is the relevant part of "git log" documentation you mention here)
already have references to deep technical terms explained in the
glossary and you are suggesting Abhishek to mimic the arrangement by
adding new and agreed-upon terms to the glossary and referring to
them from the commit-graph documentation updated by this series.

But sadly that is not the case.  What you are saying is that you
noticed that rev-list-options.txt needs a similar "the terms we use
to explain these two sections should be defined and explained in the
glossary (if they are not) and new references to glossary should be
added there" update.

In any case, that is a very good suggestion.  I agree that updating
"git log" doc may be outside the scope of Abhishek's theme, but it
would be very good to have such an update by anybody ;-)

Thanks
