+Git 2.37.3 Release Notes
+========================
+
+This primarily is to backport various fixes accumulated on the 'master'
+front since 2.37.2.
+
+Fixes since v2.37.2
+-------------------
+
+ * Fix build procedure for Windows that uses CMake so that it can pick
+ up the shell interpreter from local installation location.
+
+ * Conditionally allow building Python interpreter on Windows
+
+ * Fix to lstat() emulation on Windows.
+
+ * Older gcc with -Wall complains about the universal zero initializer
+ "struct s = { 0 };" idiom, which makes developers' lives
+ inconvenient (as -Werror is enabled by DEVELOPER=YesPlease). The
+ build procedure has been tweaked to help these compilers.
+
+ * Plug memory leaks in the failure code path in the "merge-ort" merge
+ strategy backend.
+
+ * Avoid repeatedly running getconf to ask libc version in the test
+ suite, and instead just as it once per script.
+
+ * Platform-specific code that determines if a directory is OK to use
+ as a repository has been taught to report more details, especially
+ on Windows.
+
+ * "vimdiff3" regression fix.
+
+ * "git fsck" reads mode from tree objects but canonicalizes the mode
+ before passing it to the logic to check object sanity, which has
+ hid broken tree objects from the checking logic. This has been
+ corrected, but to help exiting projects with broken tree objects
+ that they cannot fix retroactively, the severity of anomalies this
+ code detects has been demoted to "info" for now.
+
+ * Fixes to sparse index compatibility work for "reset" and "checkout"
+ commands.
+
+ * Documentation for "git add --renormalize" has been improved.
+
+Also contains other minor documentation updates and code clean-ups.
