+GIT v1.6.0.2 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.6.0.1
+* Installation on platforms that needs .exe suffix to git-* programs were
+ broken in
+* Installation on filesystems without symbolic links support did nto
+ work well.
+* In-tree documentations and test scripts now use "git foo" form to set a
+ better example, instead of the "git-foo" form (which is an acceptable
+ form if you have "PATH=$(git --exec-path):$PATH" in your script)
+* Many commands did not use the correct working tree location when used
+ with GIT_WORK_TREE environment settings.
+* "git apply --unidiff-zero" incorrectly applied a -U0 patch that inserts
+ a new line before the second line.
+* "git clone $there $here/" with extra trailing slashes after explicit
+ local directory name $here did not work as expected.
+* "git diff --dirstat -M" did not add changes in subdirectories up
+ correctly for renamed paths.
+* "git for-each-ref refs/heads/" did not work as expected.
+* "git log --grep=pattern -i" did not ignore case.
+* "git log --pretty="%ad" --date=short" did not use short format when
+ showing the timestamp.
+* Build procedure for "git shell" that used stub versions of some
+ functions and globals was not understood by linkers on some platforms.
+* "git verify-pack -v" did not work correctly when given more than one
+ packfile.
+Also contains many documentation updates.
