+ in addition to the commits that introduce real changes.
+ * The interactive input from various codepaths are consolidated and

+ already in the upstream, without checking first.
+ * The 'pack.useSparse' configuration variable now defaults to 'true',
+ enabling an optimization that has been experimental since Git 2.21.
