* As git-commit and git-status have been rewritten, "git runstatus"
helper script lost all its users and has been removed.
- * Curl library older than 7.10 is not supported by "git http-push",
- as it does not work without CURLM.
+Temporarily Disabled
+ * "git http-push" is known not to work well with cURL library older
+ than 7.16, and we had reports of repository corruption. It is
+ disabled on such platforms for now. Unfortunately, shares
+ the same issue. In other words, this does not mean you will be
+ fine if you stick to an older git release. For now, please do not
+ use http-push from older git with cURL older than 7.16 if you
+ value your data. A proper fix will hopefully materialize in
+ later versions.
