Matheus Tavares Bernardino Sept. 10, 2020, 5:21 p.m. UTC
Explanations about the configuration variables for git-grep are
duplicated in "Documentation/git-grep.txt" and
"Documentation/config/grep.txt", which can make maintenance difficult.
The first also contains a definition not present in the latter
(grep.fullName). To avoid problems like this, let's unify the
information in the second file and include it in the first.

 CONFIGURATION
 -------------
 
-grep.lineNumber::
-	If set to true, enable `-n` option by default.
-
-grep.column::
-	If set to true, enable the `--column` option by default.
-
-grep.patternType::
-	Set the default matching behavior. Using a value of 'basic', 'extended',
-	'fixed', or 'perl' will enable the `--basic-regexp`, `--extended-regexp`,
-	`--fixed-strings`, or `--perl-regexp` option accordingly, while the
-	value 'default' will return to the default matching behavior.

-grep.extendedRegexp::
-	If set to true, enable `--extended-regexp` option by default. This
-	option is ignored when the `grep.patternType` option is set to a value
-	other than 'default'.
-
-grep.threads::
-	Number of grep worker threads to use. If unset (or set to 0), Git will
-	use as many threads as the number of logical cores available.

-grep.fullName::

-grep.fallbackToNoIndex::
-	If set to true, fall back to git grep --no-index if git grep
