to read or write past the allocated buffer and abort, instead of
reporting an error, which has been fixed.
+ * "git rebase -i" did not clear the state files correctly when a run
+ of "squash/fixup" is aborted and then the user manually amended the
+ commit instead, which has been corrected.
+ (merge 10d2f35436 js/rebase-i-autosquash-fix later to maint).
+ * When fsmonitor is in use, after operation on submodules updates
+ .gitmodules, we lost track of the fact that we did so and relied on
+ stale fsmonitor data.
+ (merge 43f1180814 bp/mv-submodules-with-fsmonitor later to maint).
+ * Fix for a long-standing bug that leaves the index file corrupt when
+ it shrinks during a partial commit.
+ (merge 6c003d6ffb jk/reopen-tempfile-truncate later to maint).
+ * Further fix for O_APPEND emulation on Windows
+ (merge eeaf7ddac7 js/mingw-o-append later to maint).
+ * A corner case bugfix in "git rerere" code.
+ (merge ad2bf0d9b4 en/rerere-multi-stage-1-fix later to maint).
+ * "git add ':(attr:foo)'" is not supported and is supposed to be
+ rejected while the command line arguments are parsed, but we fail
+ to reject such a command line upfront.
+ (merge 84d938b732 nd/attr-pathspec-fix later to maint).
+ * Recent update broke the reachability algorithm when refs (e.g.
+ tags) that point at objects that are not commit were involved,
+ which has been fixed.
+ * "git rebase" etc. in Git 2.19 fails to abort when given an empty
+ commit log message as result of editing, which has been corrected.
+ (merge a3ec9eaf38 en/sequencer-empty-edit-result-aborts later to maint).
+ * The code to backfill objects in lazily cloned repository did not
+ work correctly, which has been corrected.
+ (merge e68302011c jt/lazy-object-fetch-fix later to maint).
+ * Update error messages given by "git remote" and make them consistent.
+ (merge 5025425dff ms/remote-error-message-update later to maint).
+ * "git update-ref" learned to make both "--no-deref" and "--stdin"
+ work at the same time.
+ (merge d345e9fbe7 en/update-ref-no-deref-stdin later to maint).
+ * Recently added "range-diff" had a corner-case bug to cause it
+ segfault, which has been corrected.
+ (merge e467a90c7a tg/range-diff-corner-case-fix later to maint).
* Code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
