+Git v2.3.2 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.3.1
+ * "update-index --refresh" used to leak when an entry cannot be
+ refreshed for whatever reason.
+ * "git fast-import" used to crash when it could not close and
+ conclude the resulting packfile cleanly.
+ * "git blame" died, trying to free an uninitialized piece of memory.
+ * "git merge-file" did not work correctly in a subdirectory.
+ * "git submodule add" failed to squash "path/to/././submodule" to
+ "path/to/submodule".
+ * In v2.2.0, we broke "git prune" that runs in a repository that
+ borrows from an alternate object store.
+ * Certain older vintages of cURL give irregular output from
+ "curl-config --vernum", which confused our build system.
+ * An earlier workaround to squelch unhelpful deprecation warnings
+ from the complier on Mac OSX unnecessarily set minimum required
+ version of the OS, which the user might want to raise (or lower)
+ for other reasons.
+ * Longstanding configuration variable naming rules has been added to
+ the documentation.
+ * The credential helper for Windows (in contrib/) used to mishandle
+ a user name with an at-sign in it.
+ * Older GnuPG implementations may not correctly import the keyring
+ material we prepare for the tests to use.
+ * Clarify in the documentation that "remote.<nick>.pushURL" and
+ "remote.<nick>.URL" are there to name the same repository accessed
+ via different transports, not two separate repositories.
+ * The pack bitmap support did not build with older versions of GCC.
+ * Reading configuration from a blob object, when it ends with a lone
+ CR, use to confuse the configuration parser.
+ * We didn't format an integer that wouldn't fit in "int" but in
+ "uintmax_t" correctly.
+ * "git push --signed" gave an incorrectly worded error message when
+ the other side did not support the capability.
+ * "git fetch" over a remote-helper that cannot respond to "list"
+ command could not fetch from a symbolic reference e.g. HEAD.
+ * The insn sheet "git rebase -i" creates did not fully honor
+ core.abbrev settings.
+ * The tests that wanted to see that file becomes unreadable after
+ running "chmod a-r file", and the tests that wanted to make sure it
+ is not run as root, we used "can we write into the / directory?" as
+ a cheap substitute, but on some platforms that is not a good
+ heuristics. The tests and their prerequisites have been updated to
+ check what they really require.
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.
