+Git v2.3.8 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.3.7
+------------------
+
+ * The usual "git diff" when seeing a file turning into a directory
+ showed a patchset to remove the file and create all files in the
+ directory, but "git diff --no-index" simply refused to work. Also,
+ when asked to compare a file and a directory, imitate POSIX "diff"
+ and compare the file with the file with the same name in the
+ directory, instead of refusing to run.
+
+ * The default $HOME/.gitconfig file created upon "git config --global"
+ that edits it had incorrectly spelled user.name and user.email
+ entries in it.
+
+ * "git commit --date=now" or anything that relies on approxidate lost
+ the daylight-saving-time offset.
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
+clean-ups.
