From: Heba Waly <heba.waly@gmail.com>

Move the documentation from Documentation/technical/api-oid-array.txt to
sha1-array.h as it's easier for the developers to find the usage
information beside the code instead of looking for it in another doc file.

Also documentation/technical/api-oid-array.txt is removed because the
information it has is now redundant and it'll be hard to keep it up to
date and synchronized with the documentation in the header file.

-oid-array API
-==============
-
-The oid-array API provides storage and manipulation of sets of object
-identifiers. The emphasis is on storage and processing efficiency,
-making them suitable for large lists. Note that the ordering of items is
-not preserved over some operations.
-
-Data Structures
----------------
-
-`struct oid_array`::
-
-	A single array of object IDs. This should be initialized by
-	assignment from `OID_ARRAY_INIT`.  The `oid` member contains
-	the actual data. The `nr` member contains the number of items in
-	the set.  The `alloc` and `sorted` members are used internally,
-	and should not be needed by API callers.
-
-Functions
----------
-
-`oid_array_append`::
-	Add an item to the set. The object ID will be placed at the end of
-	the array (but note that some operations below may lose this
-	ordering).
-
-`oid_array_lookup`::
-	Perform a binary search of the array for a specific object ID.
-	If found, returns the offset (in number of elements) of the
-	object ID. If not found, returns a negative integer. If the array
-	is not sorted, this function has the side effect of sorting it.
-
-`oid_array_clear`::
-	Free all memory associated with the array and return it to the
-	initial, empty state.
-
-`oid_array_for_each`::
-	Iterate over each element of the list, executing the callback
-	function for each one. Does not sort the list, so any custom
-	hash order is retained. If the callback returns a non-zero
-	value, the iteration ends immediately and the callback's
-	return is propagated; otherwise, 0 is returned.
-
-`oid_array_for_each_unique`::
-	Iterate over each unique element of the list in sorted order,
-	but otherwise behave like `oid_array_for_each`. If the array
-	is not sorted, this function has the side effect of sorting
-	it.
-
-`oid_array_filter`::
-	Apply the callback function `want` to each entry in the array,
-	retaining only the entries for which the function returns true.
-	Preserve the order of the entries that are retained.
-
-Examples
---------
-
------------------------------------------
-int print_callback(const struct object_id *oid,
-		    void *data)
-{
-	printf("%s\n", oid_to_hex(oid));
-	return 0; /* always continue */
-}
-
-void some_func(void)
-{
-	struct sha1_array hashes = OID_ARRAY_INIT;
-	struct object_id oid;
-
-	/* Read objects into our set */
-	while (read_object_from_stdin(oid.hash))
-		oid_array_append(&hashes, &oid);
-
-	/* Check if some objects are in our set */
-	while (read_object_from_stdin(oid.hash)) {
-		if (oid_array_lookup(&hashes, &oid) >= 0)
-			printf("it's in there!\n");
-
-	/*
-	 * Print the unique set of objects. We could also have
-	 * avoided adding duplicate objects in the first place,
-	 * but we would end up re-sorting the array repeatedly.
-	 * Instead, this will sort once and then skip duplicates
-	 * in linear time.
-	 */
-	oid_array_for_each_unique(&hashes, print_callback, NULL);
