    Document git-gui, git-citool as mainporcelain manual pages

    spearce authored gitster committed
    Jakub Narebski pointed out that the git-gui blame viewer is not a
    widely known feature, but is incredibly useful.  Part of the issue
    is advertising.  Up until now we haven't even referenced git-gui from
    within the core Git manual pages, mostly because I just wasn't sure
    how I wanted to supply git-gui documentation to end-users, or how
    that documentation should integrate with the core Git documentation.
    Based upon Jakub's comment that many users may not even know that
    the gui is available in a stock Git distribution I'm offering up
    two basic manual pages: git-citool and git-gui.  These should offer
    enough of a starting point for users to identify that the gui exists,
    and how to start it.  Future releases of git-gui may contain their
    own documentation system available from within a running git-gui.
    But not today.
