+ * "git svn" wasted way too much disk to record revision mappings
+ between svn and git; a new representation that is much more compact
+ for this information has been introduced to correct this.
* "git status" from a subdirectory now shows relative paths, which
makes copy-and-pasting for git-checkout/git-add/git-rm easier. The
traditional behaviour to show the full path relative to the top of
