Merge branch 'fm/fetch-raw-sha1'
"git upload-pack" that serves "git fetch" can be told to serve commits that are not at the tip of any ref, as long as they are reachable from a ref, with uploadpack.allowReachableSHA1InWant configuration variable. * fm/fetch-raw-sha1: upload-pack: optionally allow fetching reachable sha1 upload-pack: prepare to extend allow-tip-sha1-in-want config.txt: clarify allowTipSHA1InWant with camelCase
