 	If true, git will warn you if the ref name you passed it is ambiguous
 	and might match multiple refs in the .git/refs/ tree. True by default.
 
+alias.*::
+	Command aliases for the gitlink:git[1] command wrapper - e.g.
+	after defining "alias.last = cat-file commit HEAD", the invocation
+	"git last" is equivalent to "git cat-file commit HEAD". To avoid
+	confusion, aliases that hide existing git commands are ignored.
+	Arguments are split at whitespaces, but single or double
+	quote pair can be used to quote them.
+
 apply.whitespace::
 	Tells `git-apply` how to handle whitespaces, in the same way
 	as the '--whitespace' option. See gitlink:git-apply[1].
