           variables of the Git configuration file .git/config are listed as

VARIABLES         top

       GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT
           The author of a piece of code.

       GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT
           The person who put a piece of code into Git.

       GIT_EDITOR
           Text editor for use by Git commands. The value is meant to be
           interpreted by the shell when it is used. Examples: ~/bin/vi,
           $SOME_ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE, "C:\Program Files\Vim\gvim.exe"
           --nofork. The order of preference is the $GIT_EDITOR environment
           variable, then core.editor configuration, then $VISUAL, then
           $EDITOR, and then the default chosen at compile time, which is
           usually vi.

       GIT_PAGER
           Text viewer for use by Git commands (e.g., less). The value is
           meant to be interpreted by the shell. The order of preference is
           the $GIT_PAGER environment variable, then core.pager
           configuration, then $PAGER, and then the default chosen at
           compile time (usually less).
