+GIT v1.5.3.7 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.5.3.6
+ * git-send-email added 8-bit contents to the payload without
+ marking it as 8-bit in a CTE header.
+ * "git-bundle create a.bndl HEAD" dereferenced the symref and
+ did not record the ref as 'HEAD'; this prevented a bundle
+ from being used as a normal source of git-clone.
+ * The code to reject nonsense command line of the form
+ "git-commit -a paths..." and "git-commit --interactive
+ paths..." were broken.
+ * Adding a signature that is not ASCII-only to an original
+ commit that is ASCII-only would make the result non-ASCII.
+ "git-format-patch -s" did not mark such a message correctly
+ with MIME encoding header.
+ * git-add sometimes did not mark the resulting index entry
+ stat-clean. This affected only cases when adding the
+ contents with the same length as the previously staged
+ contents, and the previous staging made the index entry
+ "racily clean".
+ * git-commit did not honor GIT_INDEX_FILE the user had in the
+ environment.
+ * When checking out a revision, git-checkout did not report where the
+ updated HEAD is if you happened to have a file called HEAD in the
+ work tree.
+ * "git-rev-list --objects" mishandled a tree that points at a
+ submodule.
+ * "git cvsimport" was not ready for packed refs that "git gc" can
+ produce and gave incorrect results.
+ * Many scripted Porcelains were confused when you happened to have a
+ file called "HEAD" in your work tree.
+Also it contains updates to the user manual and documentation.
