that were detected without dying itself, but under some conditions
it didn't and died instead, which has been fixed.
+ * When "git fetch" tries to find where the history of the repository
+ it runs in has diverged from what the other side has, it has a
+ mechanism to avoid digging too deep into irrelevant side branches.
+ This however did not work well over the "smart-http" transport due
+ to a design bug, which has been fixed.
+ * When we started cURL to talk to imap server when a new enough
+ version of cURL library is available, we forgot to explicitly add
+ imap(s):// before the destination. To some folks, that didn't work
+ and the library tried to make HTTP(s) requests instead.
+ * The ./configure script generated from was taught how
+ to detect support of SSL by libcurl better.
+ * http.emptyauth configuration is a way to allow an empty username to
+ pass when attempting to authenticate using mechanisms like
+ Kerberos. We took an unspecified (NULL) username and sent ":"
+ (i.e. no username, no password) to CURLOPT_USERPWD, but did not do
+ the same when the username is explicitly set to an empty string.
+ * "git clone" of a local repository can be done at the filesystem
+ level, but the codepath did not check errors while copying and
+ adjusting the file that lists alternate object stores.
+ * Documentation for "git commit" was updated to clarify that "commit
+ -p <paths>" adds to the current contents of the index to come up
+ with what to commit.
+ * A stray symbolic link in $GIT_DIR/refs/ directory could make name
+ resolution loop forever, which has been corrected.
+ * The "submodule.<name>.path" stored in .gitmodules is never copied
+ to .git/config and such a key in .git/config has no meaning, but
+ the documentation described it and submodule.<name>.url next to
+ each other as if both belong to .git/config. This has been fixed.
+ * Recent git allows submodule.<name>.branch to use a special token
+ "." instead of the branch name; the documentation has been updated
+ to describe it.
+ * In a worktree connected to a repository elsewhere, created via "git
+ worktree", "git checkout" attempts to protect users from confusion
+ by refusing to check out a branch that is already checked out in
+ another worktree. However, this also prevented checking out a
+ branch, which is designated as the primary branch of a bare
+ reopsitory, in a worktree that is connected to the bare
+ repository. The check has been corrected to allow it.
+ * "git rebase" immediately after "git clone" failed to find the fork
+ point from the upstream.
+ * When fetching from a remote that has many tags that are irrelevant
+ to branches we are following, we used to waste way too many cycles
+ when checking if the object pointed at by a tag (that we are not
+ going to fetch!) exists in our repository too carefully.
+ * The Travis CI configuration we ship ran the tests with --verbose
+ option but this risks non-TAP output that happens to be "ok" to be
+ misinterpreted as TAP signalling a test that passed. This resulted
+ in unnecessary failure. This has been corrected by introducing a
+ new mode to run our tests in the test harness to send the verbose
+ output separately to the log file.
+ * Some AsciiDoc formatter mishandles a displayed illustration with
+ tabs in it. Adjust a few of them in merge-base documentation to
+ work around them.
Also contains minor documentation updates and code clean-ups.
