Place BuildData wiki docs inside git plugin documentation

      Git plugin 4.3.0 - June 19, 2020

      Description

      JENKINS-19022 describes the git plugin's flawed retention of build data from all preceding builds. Users that need to retain many builds from many branches in a single job may run out of memory due to "BuildData bloat".

      A Jenkins wiki page describes the workaround to remove the BuildData bloat. The contents of that wiki page should be included in the Git plugin documentation rather than being in a wiki page.

      Use the Jenkins wiki exporter to extract the instructions from the wiki page and submit a pull request to the git plugin README file with that information.

      After the pull request has been merged, use the wiki migration instructions to submit a pull request to redirect from the Wiki page to the git plugin documentation section.

          Thanks! Merged the PR. Once the merge result is visible on https://plugins.jenkins.io/git (usually a day or so), the redirect can be created by following the very last step (step viii) of the wiki migration guidelines.

          Yash Amrut Jain I've confirmed that https://plugins.jenkins.io/git now includes the BuildData documentation. The wiki page can be redirected to https://plugins.jenkins.io/git/#remove-git-plugin-buildsbybranch-builddata-script
