+ the objects that are not reachable from any of the refs into
+ unreachable and dangling. This is now enabled when dangling
+ objects are requested (which is done by default, but can be
+ overridden with the "--no-dangling" option).
+ (merge 8d8c2a5aef jk/fsck-doc later to maint).
+ * On platforms where "git fetch" is killed with SIGPIPE (e.g. OSX),
+ the upload-pack that runs on the other end that hangs up after
+ detecting an error could cause "git fetch" to die with a signal,
+ which led to a flakey test. "git fetch" now ignores SIGPIPE during
+ the network portion of its operation (this is not a problem as we
+ check the return status from our write(2)s).
+ (merge 143588949c jk/no-sigpipe-during-network-transport later to maint).
+ * A recent update broke "is this object available to us?" check for
+ well-known objects like an empty tree (which should yield "yes",
+ even when there is no on-disk object for an empty tree), which has
+ been corrected.
