+Git 2.10 Release Notes
+Backward compatibility notes
+Updates since v2.9
+UI, Workflows & Features
+ * "git pull --rebase --verify-signature" learned to warn the user
+ that "--verify-signature" is a no-op when rebasing.
+ * An upstream project can make a recommendation to shallowly clone
+ some submodules in the .gitmodules file it ships.
+ * "git worktree add" learned that '-' can be used as a short-hand for
+ "@{-1}", the previous branch.
+ * Update the funcname definition to support css files.
+Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
+ * "git fast-import" learned the same performance trick to avoid
+ creating too small a packfile as "git fetch" and "git push" have,
+ using *.unpackLimit configuration.
+ * When "git daemon" is run without --[init-]timeout specified, a
+ connection from a client that silently goes offline can hang around
+ for a long time, wasting resources. The socket-level KEEPALIVE has
+ been enabled to allow the OS to notice such failed connections.
+ (merge a43b68a ew/daemon-socket-keepalive later to maint).
+ * "git upload-pack" command has been updated to use the parse-options
+ API.
+Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
+Fixes since v2.9
+Unless otherwise noted, all the fixes since v2.8 in the maintenance
+track are contained in this release (see the maintenance releases'
+notes for details).
+ * The commands in `git log` family take %C(auto) in a custom format
+ string. This unconditionally turned the color on, ignoring
+ --no-color or with --color=auto when the output is not connected to
+ a tty; this was corrected to make the format truly behave as
+ "auto".
+ (merge b15a3e0 et/pretty-format-c-auto later to maint).
+ * "git rev-list --count" whose walk-length is limited with "-n"
+ option did not work well with the counting optimized to look at the
+ bitmap index.
+ (merge fb85db8 jk/rev-list-count-with-bitmap later to maint).
+ * "git show -W" (extend hunks to cover the entire function, delimited
+ by lines that match the "funcname" pattern) used to show the entire
+ file when a change added an entire function at the end of the file,
+ which has been fixed.
+ (merge 6f8d9bc rs/xdiff-hunk-with-func-line later to maint).
+ * Other minor clean-ups and documentation updates
