* "git send-email" in issued a bogus empty In-Reply-To: header.
+ * "git bisect" showed mysterious "won't bisect on seeked tree" error message.
+ This was leftover from Cogito days to prevent "bisect" starting from a
+ cg-seeked state. We still keep the Cogito safety, but running "git bisect
+ start" when another bisect was in effect will clean up and start over.
+ * "git push" with an explicit PATH to receive-pack did not quite work if
+ receive-pack was not on usual PATH. We earlier fixed the same issue
+ with "git fetch" and upload-pack, but somehow forgot to do so in the
+ other direction.
+ * git-gui's info dialog was not displayed correctly when the user tries
+ to commit nothing (i.e. without staging anything).
+ * "git revert" did not properly fail when attempting to run with a
+ dirty index.
Also included are a handful documentation updates.
