fixup! Avoid illegal filenames when building Documentation on NTFS
The problem this patch tried to solve is that `+` is not a valid part of a file name on FAT file systems, so it won't work in general. In practice, it still will work, at least for building Git for Windows, because the MSYS2 runtime uses a trick inherited from Cygwin to handle file names that would be illegal: the characters are simply mapped into a private Unicode page. This patch was soundly rejected on the Git mailing list (see gitgitgadget#216 for details), in particular after this developer figured out that `+` is actually a valid file name character on NTFS. So let's drop it from Git for Windows' patch thicket. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <firstname.lastname@example.org>
