meant for underlying "git am" has been revamped, which fixed for
options with parameters that were not passed correctly.
+ * Our testing framework uses a special i18n "poisoned localization"
+ feature to find messages that ought to stay constant but are
+ incorrectly marked to be translated. This feature has been made
+ into a runtime option (it used to be a compile-time option).
+ * "git push" used to check ambiguities between object-names and
+ refnames while processing the list of refs' old and new values,
+ which was unnecessary (as it knew that it is feeding raw object
+ names). This has been optimized out.
+ * The xcurl_off_t() helper function is used to cast size_t to
+ curl_off_t, but some compilers gave warnings against the code to
+ ensure the casting is done without wraparound, when size_t is
+ narrower than curl_off_t. This warning has been squelched.
+ * Code preparation to replace ulong vars with size_t vars where
+ appropriate continues.
+ * The "test installed Git" mode of our test suite has been updated to
+ work better.
+ * A coding convention around the Coccinelle semantic patches to have
+ two classes to ease code migration process has been proposed and
+ its support has been added to the Makefile.
