* Bugfixes
+ - Automated merge conflict handling when changes to symbolic
+ links conflicted were completely broken. The merge-resolve
+ strategy created a regular file with conflict markers in it
+ in place of the symbolic link. The default strategy,
+ merge-recursive was even more broken. It removed the path
+ that was pointed at by the symbolic link. Both of these
+ problems have been fixed.
- 'git diff maint master next' did not correctly give combined
diff across three trees.

Adds a remote named <name> for the repository at
<url>. The command `git fetch <name>` can then be used to create and
update remote-tracking branches <name>/<branch>.
+With `-f` option, `git fetch <name>` is run immediately after
+the remote information is set up.
+With `-t <branch>` option, instead of the default glob
+refspec for the remote to track all branches under
+`$GIT_DIR/remotes/<name>/`, a refspec to track only `<branch>`
+is created. You can give more than one `-t <branch>` to track
+multiple branche without grabbing all branches.
+With `-m <master>` option, `$GIT_DIR/remotes/<name>/HEAD` is set
+up to point at remote's `<master>` branch instead of whatever
+branch the `HEAD` at the remote repository actually points at.
