Move --pretty options into Documentation/pretty-formats.txt

Asciidoc-include it into the manuals for programs that use the
--pretty command-line option, for consistency among the docs.

This describes all the pretty-formats currently listed in the cmit_fmt
enum in commit.h, and also briefly describes the presence and format
of the 'Merge: ' line in some pretty formats.

There's a hedge that limiting your view of history can affect what
goes in the Merge: line, and that --abbrev/--no-abbrev do nothing to
the 'raw' format.

+--pretty[='<format>']::
+
+        Pretty-prints the details of a commit.  `--pretty`
+	without an explicit `=<format>` defaults to 'medium'.
+	If the commit is a merge, and if the pretty-format
+        is not 'oneline', 'email' or 'raw', an additional line is
+        inserted before the 'Author:' line.  This line begins with
+        "Merge: " and the sha1s of ancestral commits are printed,
+        separated by spaces.  Note that the listed commits may not
+        necessarily be the list of the *direct* parent commits if you
+        have limited your view of history: for example, if you are
+        only interested in changes related to a certain directory or
+        file.  Here are some additional details for each format:
+
+        * 'oneline'
+
+	  <sha1> <title line>
++
+This is designed to be as compact as possible.
+
+        * 'short'
+
+	  commit <sha1>
+	  Author: <author>
+
+	      <title line>
+
+        * 'medium'
+
+	  commit <sha1>
+	  Author: <author>
+	  Date: <date>
+
+	      <title line>
+
+	      <full commit message>
+
+        * 'full'
+
+	  commit <sha1>
+	  Author: <author>
+	  Commit: <committer>
+
+	      <title line>
+
+	      <full commit message>
+
+        * 'fuller'
+
+	  commit <sha1>
+	  Author: <author>
+	  AuthorDate: <date & time>
+	  Commit: <committer>
+	  CommitDate: <date & time>
+
+	       <title line>
+
+	       <full commit message>
+
+
+        * 'email'
+
+	  From <sha1> <date>
+	  From: <author>
+	  Date: <date & time>
+	  Subject: [PATCH] <title line>
+
+	  full commit message>
+
+
+	* 'raw'
++
+The 'raw' format shows the entire commit exactly as
+stored in the commit object.  Notably, the SHA1s are
+displayed in full, regardless of whether --abbrev or
+--no-abbrev are used, and 'parents' information show the
+true parent commits, without taking grafts nor history
+simplification into account.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
