Revisions: Numbers, Keywords, and Dates, Oh My!
"Before we go on, you should know a bit about how to identify a
particular revision in your repository."
- i might be tempted to rephrase that last part as a revision *of*
your repository, but that's being pretty nitpicky.
- technically, that "Note" is not correct, specifically the last line
which says that the pristine copy is a copy of the file as it exists
in the repository. clearly, that's not true if someone else has
committed a change to that file. it's only true if you're speaking in
the context of a single user working on the repo. if that's the case,
you should say so.
- once you use "--revision" a couple of times, might it not be more
efficient to just start using "-r" from then on, just like users would
do? and perhaps do the same with "checkout" -> "co"? and so on?
