+Git v2.15.2 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.15.1
+ * Recent update to the refs infrastructure implementation started
+ rewriting packed-refs file more often than before; this has been
+ optimized again for most trivial cases.
+ * The SubmittingPatches document has been converted to produce an
+ HTML version via AsciiDoc/Asciidoctor.
+ * Contrary to the documentation, "git pull -4/-6 other-args" did not
+ ask the underlying "git fetch" to go over IPv4/IPv6, which has been
+ corrected.
+ * When "git rebase" prepared an mailbox of changes and fed it to "git
+ am" to replay them, it was confused when a stray "From " happened
+ to be in the log message of one of the replayed changes. This has
+ been corrected.
+ * Command line completion (in contrib/) has been taught about the
+ "--copy" option of "git branch".
+ * "git apply --inaccurate-eof" when used with "--ignore-space-change"
+ triggered an internal sanity check, which has been fixed.
+ * The sequencer machinery (used by "git cherry-pick A..B", and "git
+ rebase -i", among other things) would have lost a commit if stopped
+ due to an unlockable index file, which has been fixed.
+ * The three-way merge performed by "git cherry-pick" was confused
+ when a new submodule was added in the meantime, which has been
+ fixed (or "papered over").
+ * "git notes" sent its error message to its standard output stream,
+ which was corrected.
+ * A few scripts (both in production and tests) incorrectly redirected
+ their error output. These have been corrected.
+ * Clarify and enhance documentation for "merge-base --fork-point", as
+ it was clear what it computed but not why/what for.
+Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
