Merge branch 'master' into db/fetch-pack
There's a number of tricky conflicts between master and this topic right now due to the rewrite of builtin-push. Junio must have handled these via rerere; I'd rather not deal with them again so I'm pre-merging master into the topic. Besides this topic somehow started to depend on the strbuf series that was in next, but is now in master. It no longer compiles on its own without the strbuf API. * master: (184 commits) Whip post maintenance series into shape. Minor usage update in setgitperms.perl manual: use 'URL' instead of 'url'. manual: add some markup. manual: Fix example finding commits referencing given content. Fix wording in push definition. Fix some typos, punctuation, missing words, minor markup. manual: Fix or remove em dashes. Add a --dry-run option to git-push. Add a --dry-run option to git-send-pack. Fix in-place editing functions in convert.c instaweb: support for Ruby's WEBrick server instaweb: allow for use of auto-generated scripts Add 'git-p4 commit' as an alias for 'git-p4 submit' hg-to-git speedup through selectable repack intervals git-svn: respect Subversion's [auth] section configuration values gtksourceview2 support for gitview fix contrib/hooks/post-receive-email hooks.recipients error message Support cvs via git-shell rebase -i: use diff plumbing instead of porcelain ... Conflicts: Makefile builtin-push.c rsh.c
