+Git v2.6.5 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.6.4
+ * Because "test_when_finished" in our test framework queues the
+ clean-up tasks to be done in a shell variable, it should not be
+ used inside a subshell. Add a mechanism to allow 'bash' to catch
+ such uses, and fix the ones that were found.
+ * Update "git subtree" (in contrib/) so that it can take whitespaces
+ in the pathnames, not only in the in-tree pathname but the name of
+ the directory that the repository is in.
+ * Cosmetic improvement to lock-file error messages.
+ * mark_tree_uninteresting() has code to handle the case where it gets
+ passed a NULL pointer in its 'tree' parameter, but the function had
+ 'object = &tree->object' assignment before checking if tree is
+ NULL. This gives a compiler an excuse to declare that tree will
+ never be NULL and apply a wrong optimization. Avoid it.
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
