+Git v2.3 Release Notes
+======================
+
+This one ended up to be a release with lots of small corrections and
+improvements without big uncomfortably exciting features. The recent
+security fix that went to 2.2.1 and older maintenance tracks is also
+contained in this update.
+
+
+Updates since v2.2
+------------------
+
+Ports
+
+ * Recent gcc toolchain on Cygwin started throwing compilation warning,
+ which has been squelched.
+
+ * A few updates to build on platforms that lack tv_nsec,
+ clock_gettime, CLOCK_MONOTONIC and HMAC_CTX_cleanup (e.g. older
+ RHEL) have been added.
+
+
+UI, Workflows & Features
+
+ * It was cumbersome to use "GIT_SSH" mechanism when the user wanted
+ to pass an extra set of arguments to the underlying ssh. A new
+ environment variable GIT_SSH_COMMAND can be used for this.
+
+ * A request to store an empty note via "git notes" meant to remove
+ note from the object but with --allow-empty we will store a
+ (surprise!) note that is empty.
+
+ * "git interpret-trailers" learned to properly handle the
+ "Conflicts:" block at the end.
+
+ * "git am" learned "--message-id" option to copy the message ID of
+ the incoming e-mail to the log message of resulting commit.
+
+ * "git clone --reference=<over there>" learned the "--dissociate"
+ option to go with it; it borrows objects from the reference object
+ store while cloning only to reduce network traffic and then
+ dissociates the resulting clone from the reference by performing
+ local copies of borrowed objects.
+
+ * "git send-email" learned "--transfer-encoding" option to force a
+ non-fault Content-Transfer-Encoding header (e.g. base64).
+
+ * "git send-email" normally identifies itself via X-Mailer: header in
+ the message it sends out. A new command line flag --no-xmailer
+ allows the user to squelch the header.
+
+ * "git push" into a repository with a working tree normally refuses
+ to modify the branch that is checked out. The command learned to
+ optionally do an equivalent of "git reset --hard" only when there
+ is no change to the working tree and the index instead, which would
+ be useful to "deploy" by pushing into a repository.
+
+ * "git new-workdir" (in contrib/) can be used to populate an empty
+ and existing directory now.
+
+ * Credential helpers are asked in turn until one of them give
+ positive response, which is cumbersome to turn off when you need to
+ run Git in an automated setting. The credential helper interface
+ learned to allow a helper to say "stop, don't ask other helpers."
+ Also GIT_TERMINAL_PROMPT environment can be set to false to disable
+ our built-in prompt mechanism for passwords.
+
+ * "git branch -d" (delete) and "git branch -m" (move) learned to
+ honor "-f" (force) flag; unlike many other subcommands, the way to
+ force these have been with separate "-D/-M" options, which was
+ inconsistent.
+
+ * "diff-highlight" filter (in contrib/) allows its color output to be
+ customized via configuration variables.
+
+ * "git imap-send" learned to take "-v" (verbose) and "-q" (quiet)
+ command line options.
+
+ * "git remote add $name $URL" is now allowed when "url.$URL.insteadOf"
+ is already defined.
+
+ * "git imap-send" now can be built to use cURL library to talk to
+ IMAP servers (if the library is recent enough, of course).
+ This allows you to use authenticate method other than CRAM-MD5,
+ among other things.
+
+ * "git imap-send" now allows GIT_CURL_VERBOSE environment variable to
+ control the verbosity when talking via the cURL library.
+
+ * The prompt script (in contrib/) learned to optionally hide prompt
+ when in an ignored directory by setting GIT_PS1_HIDE_IF_PWD_IGNORED
+ shell variable.
+
+
+Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
+
+ * Earlier we made "rev-list --object-edge" more aggressively list the
+ objects at the edge commits, in order to reduce number of objects 
+ fetched into a shallow repository, but the change affected cases
+ other than "fetching into a shallow repository" and made it
+ unusably slow (e.g. fetching into a normal repository should not
+ have to suffer the overhead from extra processing). Limit it to a
+ more specific case by introducing --objects-edge-aggressive, a new
+ option to rev-list.
+
+ * Squelched useless compiler warnings on Mac OS X regarding the
+ crypto API.
+
+ * The procedure to generate unicode table has been simplified.
+
+ * Some filesystems assign filemodes in a strange way, fooling then
+ automatic "filemode trustability" check done during a new
+ repository creation. The initialization codepath has been hardened
+ against this issue.
+
+ * The codepath in "git remote update --prune" to drop many refs has
+ been optimized.
+
+ * The API into get_merge_bases*() family of functions was easy to
+ misuse, which has been corrected to make it harder to do so.
+
+ * Long overdue departure from the assumption that S_IFMT is shared by
+ everybody made in 2005, which was necessary to port to z/OS.
+
+ * "git push" and "git fetch" did not communicate an overlong refname
+ correctly. Now it uses 64kB sideband to accommodate longer ones.
+
+ * Recent GPG changes the keyring format and drops support for RFC1991
+ formatted signatures, breaking our existing tests.
+
+ * "git-prompt" (in contrib/) used a variable from the global scope,
+ possibly contaminating end-user's namespace.
+
+
+Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
+
+
+Fixes since v2.2
+----------------
+
+Unless otherwise noted, all the fixes since v2.2 in the maintenance
+track are contained in this release (see the maintenance releases'
+notes for details).
+
+ * "git http-push" over WebDAV (aka dumb http-push) was broken in
+ v2.2.2 when parsing a symbolic ref, resulting in a bogus request
+ that gets rejected by recent versions of cURL library.
+ (merge f6786c8 jk/http-push-symref-fix later to maint).
+
+ * The logic in "git bisect bad HEAD" etc. to avoid forcing the test
+ of the common ancestor of bad and good commits was broken.
+ (merge 07913d5 cc/bisect-rev-parsing later to maint).
+
+ * "git checkout-index --temp=$target $path" did not work correctly
+ for paths outside the current subdirectory in the project.
+ (merge 74c4de5 es/checkout-index-temp later to maint).
+
+ * The report from "git checkout" on a branch that builds on another
+ local branch by setting its branch.*.merge to branch name (not a
+ full refname) incorrectly said that the upstream is gone.
+ (merge 05e7368 jc/checkout-local-track-report later to maint).
+
+ * With The git-prompt support (in contrib/), using the exit status of
+ the last command in the prompt, e.g. PS1='$(__git_ps1) $? ', did
+ not work well, because the helper function stomped on the exit
+ status.
+ (merge 6babe76 tf/prompt-preserve-exit-status later to maint).
+
+ * Recent update to "git commit" broke amending an existing commit
+ with bogus author/committer lines without a valid e-mail address.
+ (merge c83a509 jk/commit-date-approxidate later to maint).
+
+ * The lockfile API used to get confused which file to clean up when
+ the process moved the $cwd after creating a lockfile.
+ (merge fa137f6 nd/lockfile-absolute later to maint).
+
+ * Traditionally we tried to avoid interpreting date strings given by
+ the user as future dates, e.g. GIT_COMMITTER_DATE=2014-12-10 when
+ used early November 2014 was taken as "October 12, 2014" because it
+ is likely that a date in the future, December 10, is a mistake.
+ This heuristics has been loosened to allow people to express future
+ dates (most notably, --until=<date> may want to be far in the
+ future) and we no longer tiebreak by future-ness of the date when
+
+ (1) ISO-like format is used, and
+ (2) the string can make sense interpreted as both y-m-d and y-d-m.
+
+ Git may still have to use the heuristics to tiebreak between dd/mm/yy
+ and mm/dd/yy, though.
+ (merge d372395 jk/approxidate-avoid-y-d-m-over-future-dates later to maint).
+
+ * Git did not correctly read an overlong refname from a packed refs
+ file.
+ (merge ea41783 jk/read-packed-refs-without-path-max later to maint).
+
+ * "git apply" was described in the documentation to take --ignore-date
+ option, which it does not.
+ (merge 0cef4e7 rw/apply-does-not-take-ignore-date later to maint).
+
+ * "git add -i" did not notice when the interactive command input
+ stream went away and kept asking the same question.
+ (merge a8bec7a jk/add-i-read-error later to maint).
+
+ * "git send-email" did not handle RFC 2047 encoded headers quite
+ right.
+ (merge ab47e2a rd/send-email-2047-fix later to maint).
+
+ * New tag object format validation added in 2.2 showed garbage after
+ a tagname it reported in its error message.
+ (merge a1e920a js/fsck-tag-validation later to maint).
+
+ * The code that reads the reflog from the newer to the older entries
+ did not handle an entry that crosses a boundary of block it uses to
+ read them correctly.
+ (merge 69216bf jk/for-each-reflog-ent-reverse later to maint).
+
+ * "git diff -B -M" after making a new copy B out of an existing file
+ A and then editing A extensively ought to report that B was created
+ by copying A and A was modified, which is what "git diff -C"
+ reports, but it instead said A was renamed to B and A was edited
+ heavily in place. This was not just incoherent but also failed to
+ apply with "git apply". The report has been corrected to match what
+ "git diff -C" produces for this case.
+ (merge 6936b58 jc/diff-b-m later to maint).
+
+ * In files we pre-populate for the user to edit with commented hints,
+ a line of hint that is indented with a tab used to show as '#' (or
+ any comment char), ' ' (space), and then the hint text that began
+ with the tab, which some editors flag as an indentation error (tab
+ following space). We now omit the space after the comment char in
+ such a case.
+ (merge d55aeb7 jc/strbuf-add-lines-avoid-sp-ht-sequence later to maint).
+
+ * "git ls-tree" does not support path selection based on negative
+ pathspecs, but did not error out when negative pathspecs are given.
+ (merge f1f6224 nd/ls-tree-pathspec later to maint).
+
+ * The function sometimes returned a non-freeable memory and some
+ other times returned a piece of memory that must be freed, leading
+ to inevitable leaks.
+ (merge 59362e5 jc/exec-cmd-system-path-leak-fix later to maint).
+
+ * The code to abbreviate an object name to its short unique prefix
+ has been optimized when no abbreviation was requested.
+ (merge 61e704e mh/find-uniq-abbrev later to maint).
+
+ * "git add --ignore-errors ..." did not ignore an error to
+ give a file that did not exist.
+ (merge 1d31e5a mg/add-ignore-errors later to maint).
+
+ * "git checkout $treeish $path", when $path in the index and the
+ working tree already matched what is in $treeish at the $path,
+ still overwrote the $path unnecessarily.
+ (merge c5326bd jk/checkout-from-tree later to maint).
+
+ * "git config --get-color" did not parse its command line arguments
+ carefully.
+ (merge cb35722 jk/colors-fix later to maint).
+
+ * open() emulated on Windows platforms did not give EISDIR upon
+ an attempt to open a directory for writing.
+ (merge ba6fad0 js/windows-open-eisdir-error later to maint).
+
+ * A few code paths used abs() when they should have used labs() on
+ long integers.
+ (merge 83915ba rs/maint-config-use-labs later to maint).
+ (merge 31a8aa1 rs/receive-pack-use-labs later to maint).
+
+ * "gitweb" used to depend on a behaviour recent CGI.pm deprecated.
+ (merge 13dbf46 jk/gitweb-with-newer-cgi-multi-param later to maint).
+
+ * "git init" (hence "git clone") initialized the per-repository
+ configuration file .git/config with x-bit by mistake.
+ (merge 1f32ecf mh/config-flip-xbit-back-after-checking later to maint).
+
+ * Recent update in Git 2.2 started creating objects/info/packs and
+ info/refs files with permission bits tighter than user's umask.
+ (merge d91175b jk/prune-packed-server-info later to maint).
+
+ * Git 2.0 was supposed to make the "simple" mode for the default of
+ "git push", but it didn't.
+ (merge 00a6fa0 jk/push-simple later to maint).
+
+ * "Everyday" document had a broken link.
+ (merge 366c8d4 po/everyday-doc later to maint).
+
+ * A few test fixes.
+ (merge 880ef58 jk/no-perl-tests later to maint).
+
+ * The build procedure did not bother fixing perl and python scripts
+ when NO_PERL and NO_PYTHON build-time configuration changed.
+ (merge ca2051d jk/rebuild-perl-scripts-with-no-perl-seting-change later to maint).
+
+ * The usage string of "git log" command was marked incorrectly for
+ l10n.
+ (merge e66dc0c km/log-usage-string-i18n later to maint).
+
+ * "git for-each-ref" mishandled --format="%(upstream:track)" when a
+ branch is marked to have forked from a non-existing branch.
+ (merge b6160d9 rc/for-each-ref-tracking later to maint).

+Git v2.3.1 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.3
+----------------
+
+ * The interactive "show a list and let the user choose from it"
+ interface "add -i" used showed and prompted to the user even when
+ the candidate list was empty, against which the only "choice" the
+ user could have made was to choose nothing.
+
+ * "git apply --whitespace=fix" used to under-allocate the memory
+ when the fix resulted in a longer text than the original patch.
+
+ * "git log --help" used to show rev-list options that are irrelevant
+ to the "log" command.
+
+ * The error message from "git commit", when a non-existing author
+ name was given as value to the "--author=" parameter, has been
+ reworded to avoid misunderstanding.
+
+ * A broken pack .idx file in the receiving repository prevented the
+ dumb http transport from fetching a good copy of it from the other
+ side.
+
+ * The documentation incorrectly said that C(opy) and R(ename) are the
+ only ones that can be followed by the score number in the output in
+ the --raw format.
+
+ * Fix a misspelled conditional that is always true.
+
+ * Code to read branch name from various files in .git/ directory
+ would have misbehaved if the code to write them left an empty file.
+
+ * The "git push" documentation made the "--repo=<there>" option
+ easily misunderstood.
+
+ * After attempting and failing a password-less authentication
+ (e.g. kerberos), libcURL refuses to fall back to password based
+ Basic authentication without a bit of help/encouragement.
+
+ * Setting diff.submodule to 'log' made "git format-patch" produce
+ broken patches.
+
+ * "git rerere" (invoked internally from many mergy operations) did
+ not correctly signal errors when told to update the working tree
+ files and failed to do so for whatever reason.
+
+ * "git blame HEAD -- missing" failed to correctly say "HEAD" when it
+ tried to say "No such path 'missing' in HEAD".
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.

+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 compiler 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.
+
+ * The configuration variable 'mailinfo.scissors' was hard to
+ discover in the documentation.
+
+ * Correct a breakage to git-svn around v2.2 era that triggers
+ premature closing of FileHandle.
+
+ * Even though we officially haven't dropped Perl 5.8 support, the
+ Getopt::Long package that came with it does not support "--no-"
+ prefix to negate a boolean option; manually add support to help
+ people with older Getopt::Long package.
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.

+========================

+------------------
+
+ * A corrupt input to "git diff -M" used cause us to segfault.
+
+ * The borrowed code in kwset API did not follow our usual convention
+ to use "unsigned char" to store values that range from 0-255.
+
+ * Description given by "grep -h" for its --exclude-standard option
+ was phrased poorly.
+
+ * Documentaton for "git remote add" mentioned "--tags" and
+ "--no-tags" and it was not clear that fetch from the remote in
+ the future will use the default behaviour when neither is given
+ to override it.
+
+ * "git diff --shortstat --dirstat=changes" showed a dirstat based on
+ lines that was never asked by the end user in addition to the
+ dirstat that the user asked for.
+
+ * The interaction between "git submodule update" and the
+ submodule.*.update configuration was not clearly documented.
+
+ * "git apply" was not very careful about reading from, removing,
+ updating and creating paths outside the working tree (under
+ --index/--cached) or the current directory (when used as a
+ replacement for GNU patch).
+
+ * "git daemon" looked up the hostname even when "%CH" and "%IP"
+ interpolations are not requested, which was unnecessary.
+
+ * The "interpolated-path" option of "git daemon" inserted any string
+ client declared on the "host=" capability request without checking.
+ Sanitize and limit %H and %CH to a saner and a valid DNS name.
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.

+Git v2.3.7 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.3.6
+------------------
+
+ * An earlier update to the parser that disects a URL broke an
+ address, followed by a colon, followed by an empty string (instead
+ of the port number), e.g. ssh://example.com:/path/to/repo.
+
+ * The completion script (in contrib/) contaminated global namespace
+ and clobbered on a shell variable $x.
+
+ * The "git push --signed" protocol extension did not limit what the
+ "nonce" that is a server-chosen string can contain or how long it
+ can be, which was unnecessarily lax. Limit both the length and the
+ alphabet to a reasonably small space that can still have enough
+ entropy.
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
+clean-ups.

+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

+ 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

+
+ * 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.

+Git 2.4 Release Notes
+=====================
+
+Backward compatibility warning(s)
+---------------------------------
+
+This release has a few changes in the user-visible output from
+Porcelain commands. These are not meant to be parsed by scripts, but
+users still may want to be aware of the changes:
+
+ * The output from "git log --decorate" (and, more generally, the "%d"
+ format specifier used in the "--format=<string>" parameter to the
+ "git log" family of commands) has changed. It used to list "HEAD"
+ just like other branches; e.g.,
+
+ $ git log --decorate -1 master
+ commit bdb0f6788fa5e3cacc4315e9ff318a27b2676ff4 (HEAD, master)
+ ...
+
+ This release changes the output slightly when HEAD refers to a
+ branch whose name is also shown in the output. The above is now
+ shown as:
+
+ $ git log --decorate -1 master
+ commit bdb0f6788fa5e3cacc4315e9ff318a27b2676ff4 (HEAD -> master)
+ ...
+
+ * The phrasing "git branch" uses to describe a detached HEAD has been
+ updated to agree with the phrasing used by "git status":
+
+ - When HEAD is at the same commit as when it was originally
+ detached, they now both show "detached at <commit object name>".
+
+ - When HEAD has moved since it was originally detached, they now
+ both show "detached from <commit object name>".
+
+ Previously, "git branch" always used "from".
+
+
+Updates since v2.3
+------------------
+
+Ports
+
+ * Our default I/O size (8 MiB) for large files was too large for some
+ platforms with smaller SSIZE_MAX, leading to read(2)/write(2)
+ failures.
+
+ * We did not check the curl library version before using the
+ CURLOPT_PROXYAUTH feature, which did not exist in older versions of
+ the library.
+
+ * We now detect number of CPUs on older BSD-derived systems.
+
+ * Portability fixes and workarounds for shell scripts have been added
+ to help BSD-derived systems.
+
+
+UI, Workflows & Features
+
+ * The command usage info strings given by "git cmd -h" and in
+ documentation have been tweaked for consistency.
+
+ * The "sync" subcommand of "git p4" now allows users to exclude
+ subdirectories like its "clone" subcommand does.
+
+ * "git log --invert-grep --grep=WIP" will show only commits that do
+ not have the string "WIP" in their messages.
+
+ * "git push" has been taught an "--atomic" option that makes a push
+ that updates more than one ref an "all-or-none" affair.
+
+ * Extending the "push to deploy" feature that was added in 2.3, the
+ behaviour of "git push" when updating the branch that is checked
+ out can now be tweaked by a "push-to-checkout" hook.
+
+ * HTTP-based transports now send Accept-Language when making
+ requests. The languages to accept are inferred from environment
+ variables on the client side (LANGUAGE, etc).
+
+ * "git send-email" used to accept a mistaken "y" (or "yes") as an
+ answer to "What encoding do you want to use [UTF-8]?" without
+ questioning. Now it asks for confirmation when the answer looks too
+ short to be a valid encoding name.
+
+ * When "git apply --whitespace=fix" fixed whitespace errors in the
+ common context lines, the command reports that it did so.
+
+ * "git status" now allows the "-v" option to be given twice, in which
+ case it also shows the differences in the working tree that are not
+ staged to be committed.
+
+ * "git cherry-pick" used to clean up the log message even when it is
+ merely replaying an existing commit. It now replays the message
+ verbatim unless you are editing the message of the resulting
+ commit.
+
+ * "git archive" can now be told to set the 'text' attribute in the
+ resulting zip archive.
+
+ * Output from "git log --decorate" now distinguishes between a
+ detached HEAD vs. a HEAD that points at a branch.
+
+ This is a potentially backward-incompatible change; see above for
+ more information.
+
+ * When HEAD was detached when at commit xyz and hasn't been moved
+ since it was detached, "git status" would report "detached at xyz"
+ whereas "git branch" would report "detached from xyz". Now the
+ output of "git branch" agrees with that of "git status".
+
+ This is a potentially backward-incompatible change; see above for
+ more information.
+
+ * "git -C '' subcmd" now works in the current directory (analogously
+ to "cd ''") rather than dying with an error message.
+ (merge 6a536e2 kn/git-cd-to-empty later to maint).
+
+ * The versionsort.prereleaseSuffix configuration variable can be used
+ to specify that, for example, v1.0-pre1 comes before v1.0.
+
+ * A new "push.followTags" configuration turns the "--follow-tags"
+ option on by default for the "git push" command.
+
+ * "git log --graph --no-walk A B..." is a nonsensical combination of
+ options: "--no-walk" requests discrete points in the history, while
+ "--graph" asks to draw connections between these discrete points.
+ Forbid the use of these options together.
+
+ * "git rev-list --bisect --first-parent" does not work (yet) and can
+ even cause SEGV; forbid it. "git log --bisect --first-parent" would
+ not be useful until "git bisect --first-parent" materializes, so
+ also forbid it for now.
+
+
+Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
+
+ * Slightly change the implementation of the N_() macro to help us
+ detect mistakes.
+
+ * Restructure the implementation of "reflog expire" to fit better
+ with the recently updated reference API.
+
+ * The transport-helper did not pass transport options such as
+ verbosity, progress, cloning, etc. to import and export based
+ helpers, like it did for fetch and push based helpers, robbing them
+ of the chance to honor the wish of the end-users better.
+
+ * The tests that wanted to see that a file becomes unreadable after
+ running "chmod a-r file", and the tests that wanted to make sure
+ that they are not run as root, used "can we write into the /
+ directory?" as a cheap substitute. But on some platforms that is
+ not a good heuristic. The tests and their prerequisites have been
+ updated to check what they really require.
+ (merge f400e51 jk/sanity later to maint).
+
+ * Various issues around "reflog expire", e.g. using --updateref when
+ expiring a reflog for a symbolic reference, have been corrected
+ and/or made saner.
+
+ * The documentation for the strbuf API had been split between the API
+ documentation and the header file. Consolidate the documentation in
+ strbuf.h.
+
+ * The error handling functions and conventions are now documented in
+ the API manual (in api-error-handling.txt).
+
+ * Optimize gitattribute look-up, mostly useful in "git grep" on a
+ project that does not use many attributes, by avoiding it when we
+ (should) know that the attributes are not defined in the first
+ place.
+
+ * Typofix in comments.
+ (merge ef2956a ak/git-pm-typofix later to maint).
+
+ * Code clean-up.
+ (merge 0b868f0 sb/hex-object-name-is-at-most-41-bytes-long later to maint).
+ (merge 5d30851 dp/remove-duplicated-header-inclusion later to maint).
+
+ * Simplify the ref transaction API for verifying that "the ref should
+ be pointing at this object".
+
+ * Simplify the code in "git daemon" that parses out and holds
+ hostnames used in request interpolation.
+
+ * Restructure the "git push" codepath to make it easier to add new
+ configuration bits.
+
+ * The run-command interface made it easy to make a pipe for us to
+ read from a process, wait for the process to finish, and then
+ attempt to read its output. But this pattern can lead to deadlock.
+ So introduce a helper to do this correctly (i.e., first read, and
+ then wait the process to finish) and also add code to prevent such
+ abuse in the run-command helper.
+
+ * People often forget to chain the commands in their test together
+ with &&, letting a failure from an earlier command in the test go
+ unnoticed. The new GIT_TEST_CHAIN_LINT mechanism allows you to
+ catch such a mistake more easily.
+
+
+Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
+
+
+Fixes since v2.3
+----------------
+
+Unless otherwise noted, all the fixes since v2.3 in the maintenance
+track are contained in this release (see the maintenance releases'
+notes for details).
+
+ * "git blame HEAD -- missing" failed to correctly say "HEAD" when it
+ tried to say "No such path 'missing' in HEAD".
+ (merge a46442f jk/blame-commit-label later to maint).
+
+ * "git rerere" (invoked internally from many mergy operations) did
+ not correctly signal errors when it attempted to update the working
+ tree files but failed for whatever reason.
+ (merge 89ea903 jn/rerere-fail-on-auto-update-failure later to maint).
+
+ * Setting diff.submodule to 'log' made "git format-patch" produce
+ broken patches.
+ (merge 339de50 dk/format-patch-ignore-diff-submodule later to maint).
+
+ * After attempting and failing a password-less authentication (e.g.,
+ Kerberos), libcURL refuses to fall back to password-based Basic
+ authentication without a bit of help/encouragement.
+ (merge 4dbe664 bc/http-fallback-to-password-after-krb-fails later to maint).
+
+ * The "git push" documentation for the "--repo=<there>" option was
+ easily misunderstood.
+ (merge 57b92a7 mg/push-repo-option-doc later to maint).
+
+ * Code to read a branch name from various files in the .git/
+ directory would have overrun array limits if asked to read an empty
+ file.
+ (merge 66ec904 jk/status-read-branch-name-fix later to maint).
+
+ * Remove a superfluous conditional that is always true.
+ (merge 94ee8e2 jk/remote-curl-an-array-in-struct-cannot-be-null later to maint).
+
+ * The "git diff --raw" documentation incorrectly implied that C(opy)
+ and R(ename) are the only statuses that can be followed by a score
+ number.
+ (merge ac1c2d9 jc/diff-format-doc later to maint).
+
+ * A broken pack .idx file in the receiving repository prevented the
+ dumb http transport from fetching a good copy of it from the other
+ side.
+ (merge 8b9c2dd jk/dumb-http-idx-fetch-fix later to maint).
+
+ * The error message from "git commit", when a non-existing author
+ name was given as value to the "--author=" parameter, has been
+ reworded to avoid misunderstanding.
+ (merge 1044b1f mg/commit-author-no-match-malformed-message later to maint).
+
+ * "git log --help" used to show rev-list options that are irrelevant
+ to the "log" command.
+ (merge 3cab02d jc/doc-log-rev-list-options later to maint).
+
+ * "git apply --whitespace=fix" used to under-allocate memory when the
+ fix resulted in a longer text than the original patch.
+ (merge 407a792 jc/apply-ws-fix-expands later to maint).
+
+ * The interactive "show a list and let the user choose from it"
+ interface used by "git add -i" unnecessarily prompted the user even
+ when the candidate list was empty, against which the only "choice"
+ the user could have made was to choose nothing.
+ (merge a9c4641 ak/add-i-empty-candidates later to maint).
+
+ * The todo list created by "git rebase -i" did not fully honor
+ core.abbrev settings.
+ (merge edb72d5 ks/rebase-i-abbrev later to maint).
+
+ * "git fetch" over a remote-helper that cannot respond to the "list"
+ command could not fetch from a symbolic reference (e.g., HEAD).
+ (merge 33cae54 mh/deref-symref-over-helper-transport later to maint).
+
+ * "git push --signed" gave an incorrectly worded error message when
+ the other side did not support the capability.
+
+ * The "git push --signed" protocol extension did not limit what the
+ "nonce" (a server-chosen string) could contain nor how long it
+ could be, which was unnecessarily lax. Limit both the length and
+ the alphabet to a reasonably small space that can still have enough
+ entropy.
+ (merge afcb6ee jc/push-cert later to maint).
+
+ * The completion script (in contrib/) clobbered the shell variable $x
+ in the global shell namespace.
+ (merge 852ff1c ma/bash-completion-leaking-x later to maint).
+
+ * We incorrectly formatted a "uintmax_t" integer that doesn't fit in
+ "int".
+ (merge d306f3d jk/decimal-width-for-uintmax later to maint).
+
+ * The configuration parser used to be confused when reading
+ configuration from a blob object that ends with a lone CR.
+ (merge 1d0655c jk/config-no-ungetc-eof later to maint).
+
+ * The pack bitmap support did not build with older versions of GCC.
+ (merge bd4e882 jk/pack-bitmap later to maint).
+
+ * The documentation wasn't clear that "remote.<nick>.pushURL" and
+ "remote.<nick>.URL" are there to name the same repository accessed
+ via different transports, not two separate repositories.
+ (merge 697f652 jc/remote-set-url-doc later to maint).
+
+ * Older GnuPG implementations may not correctly import the keyring
+ material we prepare for the tests to use.
+ (merge 1f985d6 ch/new-gpg-drops-rfc-1991 later to maint).
+
+ * The credential helper for Windows (in contrib/) used to mishandle
+ user names that contain an at-sign.
+ (merge 13d261e av/wincred-with-at-in-username-fix later to maint).
+
+ * "diff-highlight" (in contrib/) used to show byte-by-byte
+ differences, which could cause multi-byte characters to be chopped
+ in the middle. It learned to pay attention to character boundaries
+ (assuming UTF-8).
+ (merge 8d00662 jk/colors later to maint).
+
+ * Document longstanding configuration variable naming rules in
+ CodingGuidelines.
+ (merge 35840a3 jc/conf-var-doc later to maint).
+
+ * An earlier workaround to squelch unhelpful deprecation warnings
+ from the compiler on OS X unnecessarily set a minimum required
+ version of the OS, which the user might want to raise (or lower)
+ for other reasons.
+ (merge 88c03eb es/squelch-openssl-warnings-on-macosx later to maint).
+
+ * Certain older vintages of cURL give irregular output from
+ "curl-config --vernum", which confused our build system.
+ (merge 3af6792 tc/curl-vernum-output-broken-in-7.11 later to maint).
+
+ * In v2.2.0, we broke "git prune" that runs in a repository that
+ borrows from an alternate object store.
+ (merge b0a4264 jk/prune-mtime later to maint).
+
+ * "git submodule add" failed to squash "path/to/././submodule" to
+ "path/to/submodule".
+ (merge 8196e72 ps/submodule-sanitize-path-upon-add later to maint).
+
+ * "git merge-file" did not work correctly when invoked in a
+ subdirectory.
+ (merge 204a8ff ab/merge-file-prefix later to maint).
+
+ * "git blame" could die trying to free an uninitialized piece of
+ memory.
+ (merge e600592 es/blame-commit-info-fix later to maint).
+
+ * "git fast-import" used to crash when it could not close and
+ finalize the resulting packfile cleanly.
+ (merge 5e915f3 jk/fast-import-die-nicely-fix later to maint).
+
+ * "update-index --refresh" used to leak memory when an entry could
+ not be refreshed for whatever reason.
+ (merge bc1c2ca sb/plug-leak-in-make-cache-entry later to maint).
+
+ * The "interpolated-path" option of "git daemon" inserted any string
+ the client declared on the "host=" capability request without
+ checking. Sanitize and limit %H and %CH to a saner and a valid DNS
+ name.
+ (merge b485373 jk/daemon-interpolate later to maint).
+
+ * "git daemon" unnecessarily looked up the hostname even when "%CH"
+ and "%IP" interpolations were not requested.
+ (merge dc8edc8 rs/daemon-interpolate later to maint).
+
+ * We relied on "--no-" prefix handling in Perl's Getopt::Long
+ package, even though that support didn't exist in Perl 5.8 (which
+ we still support). Manually add support to help people with older
+ Getopt::Long packages.
+ (merge f471494 km/send-email-getopt-long-workarounds later to maint).
+
+ * "git apply" was not very careful about reading from, removing,
+ updating and creating paths outside the working tree (under
+ --index/--cached) or the current directory (when used as a
+ replacement for GNU patch).
+ (merge e0d201b jc/apply-beyond-symlink later to maint).
+
+ * Correct a breakage in git-svn, introduced around the v2.2 era, that
+ can cause FileHandles to be closed prematurely.
+ (merge e426311 ew/svn-maint-fixes later to maint).
+
+ * We did not parse usernames followed by literal IPv6 addresses
+ correctly in SSH transport URLs; e.g.,
+ ssh://user@[2001:db8::1]:22/repo.git.
+ (merge 6b6c5f7 tb/connect-ipv6-parse-fix later to maint).
+
+ * The configuration variable 'mailinfo.scissors' was hard to
+ discover in the documentation.
+ (merge afb5de7 mm/am-c-doc later to maint).
+
+ * The interaction between "git submodule update" and the
+ submodule.*.update configuration was not clearly documented.
+ (merge 5c31acf ms/submodule-update-config-doc later to maint).
+
+ * "git diff --shortstat" used together with "--dirstat=changes" or
+ "--dirstat=files" incorrectly output dirstat information twice.
+ (merge ab27389 mk/diff-shortstat-dirstat-fix later to maint).
+
+ * The manpage for "git remote add" mentioned "--tags" and "--no-tags"
+ but did not explain what happens if neither option is provided.
+ (merge aaba0ab mg/doc-remote-tags-or-not later to maint).
+
+ * The description of "--exclude-standard option" in the output of
+ "git grep -h" was phrased poorly.
+ (merge 77fdb8a nd/grep-exclude-standard-help-fix later to maint).
+
+ * "git rebase -i" recently started to include the number of commits
+ in the todo list, but that output included extraneous whitespace on
+ a platform that prepends leading whitespaces to its "wc -l" output.
+ (merge 2185d3b es/rebase-i-count-todo later to maint).
+
+ * The borrowed code in the kwset API did not follow our usual
+ convention to use "unsigned char" to store values that range from
+ 0-255.
+ (merge 189c860 bw/kwset-use-unsigned later to maint).
+
+ * A corrupt input to "git diff -M" used to cause it to segfault.
+ (merge 4d6be03 jk/diffcore-rename-duplicate later to maint).
+
+ * Certain builds of GPG triggered false breakages in a test.
+ (merge 3f88c1b mg/verify-commit later to maint).
+
+ * "git imap-send" learned to optionally talk with an IMAP server via
+ libcURL. Because there is no other option when Git is built with
+ the NO_OPENSSL option, use libcURL by default in that case.
+ (merge dcd01ea km/imap-send-libcurl-options later to maint).
+
+ * "git log --decorate" did not reset colors correctly around the
+ branch names.
+ (merge 5ee8758 jc/decorate-leaky-separator-color later to maint).
+
+ * The code that reads from the ctags file in the completion script
+ (in contrib/) did not spell ${param/pattern/string} substitution
+ correctly, which happened to work with bash but not with zsh.
+ (merge db8d750 js/completion-ctags-pattern-substitution-fix later to maint).
+
+ * The transfer.hiderefs support did not quite work for smart-http
+ transport.
+ (merge 8ddf3ca jk/smart-http-hide-refs later to maint).
+
+ * In the "git tag -h" output, move the documentation for the
+ "--column" and "--sort" options to the "Tag listing options"
+ section.
+ (merge dd059c6 jk/tag-h-column-is-a-listing-option later to maint).
+
+ * "git prune" used to largely ignore broken refs when deciding which
+ objects are still being used, which could cause reference
+ corruption to lead to object loss.
+ (merge ea56c4e jk/prune-with-corrupt-refs later to maint).
+
+ * The split-index mode introduced in v2.3.0-rc0~41 was broken in the
+ codepath to protect us against a broken reimplementation of Git
+ that writes an invalid index with duplicated index entries, etc.
+ (merge 03f15a7 tg/fix-check-order-with-split-index later to maint).
+
+ * "git fetch", when fetching a commit using the
+ allow-tip-sha1-in-want extension, could have failed to fetch all of
+ the requested refs.
+ (merge 32d0462 jk/fetch-pack later to maint).
+
+ * An failure early in the "git clone" that started creating the
+ working tree and repository could have resulted in the failure to
+ clean up some directories and files.
+ (merge 16eff6c jk/cleanup-failed-clone later to maint).
+
+ * Recommend format-patch and send-email for those who want to submit
+ patches to this project.
+ (merge b25c469 jc/submitting-patches-mention-send-email later to maint).
+
+ * Do not spawn the pager when "git grep" is run with "--quiet".
+ (merge c2048f0 ws/grep-quiet-no-pager later to maint).
+
+ * The prompt script (in contrib/) did not show the untracked sign
+ when working in a subdirectory without any untracked files.
+ (merge 9bdc517 ct/prompt-untracked-fix later to maint).
+
+ * An earlier update to the URL parser broke an address that contains
+ a colon but an empty string for the port number, like
+ ssh://example.com:/path/to/repo.
+ (merge 6b6c5f7 tb/connect-ipv6-parse-fix later to maint).
+
+ * Code cleanups and documentation updates.
+ (merge 2ce63e9 rs/simple-cleanups later to maint).
+ (merge 33baa69 rj/no-xopen-source-for-cygwin later to maint).

+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.4
+----------------
+
+ * 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.
+
+ * "git cat-file bl $blob" failed to barf even though there is no
+ object type that is "bl".
+
+ * Teach the codepaths that read .gitignore and .gitattributes files
+ that these files encoded in UTF-8 may have UTF-8 BOM marker at the
+ beginning; this makes it in line with what we do for configuration
+ files already.
+
+ * Access to objects in repositories that borrow from another one on a
+ slow NFS server unnecessarily got more expensive due to recent code
+ becoming more cautious in a naive way not to lose objects to pruning.
+
+ * We avoid setting core.worktree when the repository location is the
+ ".git" directory directly at the top level of the working tree, but
+ the code misdetected the case in which the working tree is at the
+ root level of the filesystem (which arguably is a silly thing to
+ do, but still valid).
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
+clean-ups.

+Git v2.4.2 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.4.1
+------------------
+
+ * "git rev-list --objects $old --not --all" to see if everything that
+ is reachable from $old is already connected to the existing refs
+ was very inefficient.
+
+ * "hash-object --literally" introduced in v2.2 was not prepared to
+ take a really long object type name.
+
+ * "git rebase --quiet" was not quite quiet when there is nothing to
+ do.
+
+ * The completion for "log --decorate=" parameter value was incorrect.
+
+ * "filter-branch" corrupted commit log message that ends with an
+ incomplete line on platforms with some "sed" implementations that
+ munge such a line. Work it around by avoiding to use "sed".
+
+ * "git daemon" fails to build from the source under NO_IPV6
+ configuration (regression in 2.4).
+
+ * "git stash pop/apply" forgot to make sure that not just the working
+ tree is clean but also the index is clean. The latter is important
+ as a stash application can conflict and the index will be used for
+ conflict resolution.
+
+ * We have prepended $GIT_EXEC_PATH and the path "git" is installed in
+ (typically "/usr/bin") to $PATH when invoking subprograms and hooks
+ for almost eternity, but the original use case the latter tried to
+ support was semi-bogus (i.e. install git to /opt/foo/git and run it
+ without having /opt/foo on $PATH), and more importantly it has
+ become less and less relevant as Git grew more mainstream (i.e. the
+ users would _want_ to have it on their $PATH). Stop prepending the
+ path in which "git" is installed to users' $PATH, as that would
+ interfere the command search order people depend on (e.g. they may
+ not like versions of programs that are unrelated to Git in /usr/bin
+ and want to override them by having different ones in /usr/local/bin
+ and have the latter directory earlier in their $PATH).
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
+clean-ups.

+Git v2.4.3 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.4.3
+------------------
+
+ * Error messages from "git branch" called remote-tracking branches as
+ "remote branches".
+
+ * "git rerere forget" in a repository without rerere enabled gave a
+ cryptic error message; it should be a silent no-op instead.
+
+ * "git pull --log" and "git pull --no-log" worked as expected, but
+ "git pull --log=20" did not.
+
+ * The pull.ff configuration was supposed to override the merge.ff
+ configuration, but it didn't.
+
+ * The code to read pack-bitmap wanted to allocate a few hundred
+ pointers to a structure, but by mistake allocated and leaked memory
+ enough to hold that many actual structures. Correct the allocation
+ size and also have it on stack, as it is small enough.
+
+ * Various documentation mark-up fixes to make the output more
+ consistent in general and also make AsciiDoctor (an alternative
+ formatter) happier.
+
+ * "git bundle verify" did not diagnose extra parameters on the
+ command line.
+
+ * Multi-ref transaction support we merged a few releases ago
+ unnecessarily kept many file descriptors open, risking to fail with
+ resource exhaustion.
+
+ * The ref API did not handle cases where 'refs/heads/xyzzy/frotz' is
+ removed at the same time as 'refs/heads/xyzzy' is added (or vice
+ versa) very well.
+
+ * The "log --decorate" enhancement in Git 2.4 that shows the commit
+ at the tip of the current branch e.g. "HEAD -> master", did not
+ work with --decorate=full.
+
+ * There was a commented-out (instead of being marked to expect
+ failure) test that documented a breakage that was fixed since the
+ test was written; turn it into a proper test.
+
+ * core.excludesfile (defaulting to $XDG_HOME/git/ignore) is supposed
+ to be overridden by repository-specific .git/info/exclude file, but
+ the order was swapped from the beginning. This belatedly fixes it.
+
+ * The connection initiation code for "ssh" transport tried to absorb
+ differences between the stock "ssh" and Putty-supplied "plink" and
+ its derivatives, but the logic to tell that we are using "plink"
+ variants were too loose and falsely triggered when "plink" appeared
+ anywhere in the path (e.g. "/home/me/bin/uplink/ssh").
+
+ * "git rebase -i" moved the "current" command from "todo" to "done" a
+ bit too prematurely, losing a step when a "pick" did not even start.
+
+ * "git add -e" did not allow the user to abort the operation by
+ killing the editor.
+
+ * Git 2.4 broke setting verbosity and progress levels on "git clone"
+ with native transports.
+
+ * Some time ago, "git blame" (incorrectly) lost the convert_to_git()
+ call when synthesizing a fake "tip" commit that represents the
+ state in the working tree, which broke folks who record the history
+ with LF line ending to make their project portabile across
+ platforms while terminating lines in their working tree files with
+ CRLF for their platform.
+
+ * Code clean-up for xdg configuration path support.
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
+clean-ups.

+Git v2.4.4 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.4.3
+------------------
+
+ * l10n updates for German.
+
+ * An earlier leakfix to bitmap testing code was incomplete.
+
+ * "git clean pathspec..." tried to lstat(2) and complain even for
+ paths outside the given pathspec.
+
+ * Communication between the HTTP server and http_backend process can
+ lead to a dead-lock when relaying a large ref negotiation request.
+ Diagnose the situation better, and mitigate it by reading such a
+ request first into core (to a reasonable limit).
+
+ * The clean/smudge interface did not work well when filtering an
+ empty contents (failed and then passed the empty input through).
+ It can be argued that a filter that produces anything but empty for
+ an empty input is nonsense, but if the user wants to do strange
+ things, then why not?
+
+ * Make "git stash something --help" error out, so that users can
+ safely say "git stash drop --help".
+
+ * Clarify that "log --raw" and "log --format=raw" are unrelated
+ concepts.
+
+ * Catch a programmer mistake to feed a pointer not an array to
+ ARRAY_SIZE() macro, by using a couple of GCC extensions.
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
+clean-ups.

+ show special-cased error message, which was made irrelevant when

+

+
+ * The configuration reader/writer uses mmap(2) interface to access
+ the files; when we find a directory, it barfed with "Out of memory?".

+Git v2.4.7 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.4.6
+------------------
+
+ * A minor regression to "git fsck" in v2.2 era was fixed; it
+ complained about a body-less tag object when it lacked a
+ separator empty line after its header to separate it with a
+ non-existent body.
+
+ * We used to ask libCURL to use the most secure authentication method
+ available when talking to an HTTP proxy only when we were told to
+ talk to one via configuration variables. We now ask libCURL to
+ always use the most secure authentication method, because the user
+ can tell libCURL to use an HTTP proxy via an environment variable
+ without using configuration variables.
+
+ * When you say "!<ENTER>" while running say "git log", you'd confuse
+ yourself in the resulting shell, that may look as if you took
+ control back to the original shell you spawned "git log" from but
+ that isn't what is happening. To that new shell, we leaked
+ GIT_PAGER_IN_USE environment variable that was meant as a local
+ communication between the original "Git" and subprocesses that was
+ spawned by it after we launched the pager, which caused many
+ "interesting" things to happen, e.g. "git diff | cat" still paints
+ its output in color by default.
+
+ Stop leaking that environment variable to the pager's half of the
+ fork; we only need it on "Git" side when we spawn the pager.
+
+ * Avoid possible ssize_t to int truncation.
+
+ * "git config" failed to update the configuration file when the
+ underlying filesystem is incapable of renaming a file that is still
+ open.
+
+ * A minor bugfix when pack bitmap is used with "rev-list --count".
+
+ * An ancient test framework enhancement to allow color was not
+ entirely correct; this makes it work even when tput needs to read
+ from the ~/.terminfo under the user's real HOME directory.
+
+ * Fix a small bug in our use of umask() return value.
+
+ * "git rebase" did not exit with failure when format-patch it invoked
+ failed for whatever reason.
+
+ * Disable "have we lost a race with competing repack?" check while
+ receiving a huge object transfer that runs index-pack.
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code

+Git 2.5 Release Notes
+=====================
+
+Updates since v2.4
+------------------
+
+UI, Workflows & Features
+
+ * The bash completion script (in contrib/) learned a few options that
+ "git revert" takes.
+
+ * Whitespace breakages in deleted and context lines can also be
+ painted in the output of "git diff" and friends with the new
+ --ws-error-highlight option.
+
+ * List of commands shown by "git help" are grouped along the workflow
+ elements to help early learners.
+
+ * "git p4" now detects the filetype (e.g. binary) correctly even when
+ the files are opened exclusively.
+
+ * git p4 attempts to better handle branches in Perforce.
+
+ * "git p4" learned "--changes-block-size <n>" to read the changes in
+ chunks from Perforce, instead of making one call to "p4 changes"
+ that may trigger "too many rows scanned" error from Perforce.
+
+ * More workaround for Perforce's row number limit in "git p4".
+
+ * Unlike "$EDITOR" and "$GIT_EDITOR" that can hold the path to the
+ command and initial options (e.g. "/path/to/emacs -nw"), 'git p4'
+ did not let the shell interpolate the contents of the environment
+ variable that name the editor "$P4EDITOR" (and "$EDITOR", too).
+ This release makes it in line with the rest of Git, as well as with
+ Perforce.
+
+ * A new short-hand <branch>@{push} denotes the remote-tracking branch
+ that tracks the branch at the remote the <branch> would be pushed
+ to.
+
+ * "git show-branch --topics HEAD" (with no other arguments) did not
+ do anything interesting. Instead, contrast the given revision
+ against all the local branches by default.
+
+ * A replacement for contrib/workdir/git-new-workdir that does not
+ rely on symbolic links and make sharing of objects and refs safer
+ by making the borrowee and borrowers aware of each other.
+
+ Consider this as still an experimental feature; its UI is still
+ likely to change.
+
+ * Tweak the sample "store" backend of the credential helper to honor
+ XDG configuration file locations when specified.
+
+ * A heuristic we use to catch mistyped paths on the command line
+ "git <cmd> <revs> <pathspec>" is to make sure that all the non-rev
+ parameters in the later part of the command line are names of the
+ files in the working tree, but that means "git grep $str -- \*.c"
+ must always be disambiguated with "--", because nobody sane will
+ create a file whose name literally is asterisk-dot-see. Loosen the
+ heuristic to declare that with a wildcard string the user likely
+ meant to give us a pathspec.
+
+ * "git merge FETCH_HEAD" learned that the previous "git fetch" could
+ be to create an Octopus merge, i.e. recording multiple branches
+ that are not marked as "not-for-merge"; this allows us to lose an
+ old style invocation "git merge <msg> HEAD $commits..." in the
+ implementation of "git pull" script; the old style syntax can now
+ be deprecated (but not removed yet).
+
+ * Filter scripts were run with SIGPIPE disabled on the Git side,
+ expecting that they may not read what Git feeds them to filter.
+ We however treated a filter that does not read its input fully
+ before exiting as an error. We no longer do and ignore EPIPE
+ when writing to feed the filter scripts.
+
+ This changes semantics, but arguably in a good way. If a filter
+ can produce its output without fully consuming its input using
+ whatever magic, we now let it do so, instead of diagnosing it
+ as a programming error.
+
+ * Instead of dying immediately upon failing to obtain a lock, the
+ locking (of refs etc) retries after a short while with backoff.
+
+ * Introduce http.<url>.SSLCipherList configuration variable to tweak
+ the list of cipher suite to be used with libcURL when talking with
+ https:// sites.
+
+ * "git subtree" script (in contrib/) used "echo -n" to produce
+ progress messages in a non-portable way.
+
+ * "git subtree" script (in contrib/) does not have --squash option
+ when pushing, but the documentation and help text pretended as if
+ it did.
+
+ * The Git subcommand completion (in contrib/) no longer lists credential
+ helpers among candidates; they are not something the end user would
+ invoke interactively.
+
+ * The index file can be taught with "update-index --untracked-cache"
+ to optionally remember already seen untracked files, in order to
+ speed up "git status" in a working tree with tons of cruft.
+
+ * "git mergetool" learned to drive WinMerge as a backend.
+
+ * "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.
+
+ * "git cat-file --batch(-check)" learned the "--follow-symlinks"
+ option that follows an in-tree symbolic link when asked about an
+ object via extended SHA-1 syntax, e.g. HEAD:RelNotes that points at
+ Documentation/RelNotes/2.5.0.txt. With the new option, the command
+ behaves as if HEAD:Documentation/RelNotes/2.5.0.txt was given as
+ input instead.
+
+ Consider this as still an experimental and incomplete feature:
+
+ - We may want to do the same for in-index objects, e.g.
+ asking for :RelNotes with this option should give
+ :Documentation/RelNotes/2.5.0.txt, too
+
+ - "git cat-file --follow-symlinks blob HEAD:RelNotes"
+ may also be something we want to allow in the future.
+
+ * "git send-email" learned the alias file format used by the sendmail
+ program (in a simplified form; we obviously do not feed pipes).
+
+ * Traditionally, external low-level 3-way merge drivers are expected
+ to produce their results based solely on the contents of the three
+ variants given in temporary files named by %O, %A and %B on their
+ command line. Additionally allow them to look at the final path
+ (given by %P).
+
+ * "git blame" learned blame.showEmail configuration variable.
+
+ * "git apply" cannot diagnose a patch corruption when the breakage is
+ to mark the length of the hunk shorter than it really is on the
+ hunk header line "@@ -l,k +m,n @@"; one special case it could is
+ when the hunk becomes no-op (e.g. k == n == 2 for two-line context
+ patch output), and it learned to do so in this special case.
+
+ * Add the "--allow-unknown-type" option to "cat-file" to allow
+ inspecting loose objects of an experimental or a broken type.
+
+ * Many long-running operations show progress eye-candy, even when
+ they are later backgrounded. Hide the eye-candy when the process
+ is sent to the background instead.
+ (merge a4fb76c lm/squelch-bg-progress later to maint).
+
+
+Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
+
+ * "unsigned char [20]" used throughout the code to represent object
+ names are being converted into a semi-opaque "struct object_id".
+ This effort is expected to interfere with other topics in flight,
+ but hopefully will give us one extra level of abstraction in the
+ end, when completed.
+
+ * for_each_ref() callback functions were taught to name the objects
+ not with "unsigned char sha1[20]" but with "struct object_id".
+
+ * Catch a programmer mistake to feed a pointer not an array to
+ ARRAY_SIZE() macro, by using a couple of GCC extensions.
+
+ * Some error messages in "git config" were emitted without calling
+ the usual error() facility.
+
+ * When "add--interactive" splits a hunk into two overlapping hunks
+ and then let the user choose only one, it sometimes feeds an
+ incorrect patch text to "git apply". Add tests to demonstrate
+ this.
+
+ I have a slight suspicion that this may be $gmane/87202 coming back
+ and biting us (I seem to have said "let's run with this and see
+ what happens" back then).
+
+ * More line-ending tests.
+
+ * An earlier rewrite to use strbuf_getwholeline() instead of fgets(3)
+ to read packed-refs file revealed that the former is unacceptably
+ inefficient. It has been optimized by using getdelim(3) when
+ available.
+
+ * The refs API uses ref_lock struct which had its own "int fd", even
+ though the same file descriptor was in the lock struct it contains.
+ Clean-up the code to lose this redundant field.
+
+ * There was a dead code that used to handle "git pull --tags" and
+ show special-cased error message, which was made irrelevant when
+ the semantics of the option changed back in Git 1.9 days.
+ (merge 19d122b pt/pull-tags-error-diag later to maint).
+
+ * Help us to find broken test script that splits the body part of the
+ test by mistaken use of wrong kind of quotes.
+ (merge d93d5d5 jc/test-prereq-validate later to maint).
+
+ * Developer support to automatically detect broken &&-chain in the
+ test scripts is now turned on by default.
+ (merge 92b269f jk/test-chain-lint later to maint).
+
+ * Error reporting mechanism used in "refs" API has been made more
+ consistent.
+
+ * "git pull" has more test coverage now.
+
+ * "git pull" has become more aware of the options meant for
+ underlying "git fetch" and then learned to use parse-options
+ parser.
+
+ * Clarify in the Makefile a guideline to decide use of USE_NSEC.
+
+Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
+
+
+Fixes since v2.4
+----------------
+
+Unless otherwise noted, all the fixes since v2.4 in the maintenance
+track are contained in this release (see the maintenance releases'
+notes for details).
+
+ * Git 2.4 broke setting verbosity and progress levels on "git clone"
+ with native transports.
+ (merge 822f0c4 mh/clone-verbosity-fix later to maint).
+
+ * "git add -e" did not allow the user to abort the operation by
+ killing the editor.
+ (merge cb64800 jk/add-e-kill-editor later to maint).
+
+ * Memory usage of "git index-pack" has been trimmed by tens of
+ per-cent.
+ (merge f0e7f11 nd/slim-index-pack-memory-usage later to maint).
+
+ * "git rev-list --objects $old --not --all" to see if everything that
+ is reachable from $old is already connected to the existing refs
+ was very inefficient.
+ (merge b6e8a3b jk/still-interesting later to maint).
+
+ * "hash-object --literally" introduced in v2.2 was not prepared to
+ take a really long object type name.
+ (merge 1427a7f jc/hash-object later to maint).
+
+ * "git rebase --quiet" was not quite quiet when there is nothing to
+ do.
+ (merge 22946a9 jk/rebase-quiet-noop later to maint).
+
+ * The completion for "log --decorate=" parameter value was incorrect.
+ (merge af16bda sg/complete-decorate-full-not-long later to maint).
+
+ * "filter-branch" corrupted commit log message that ends with an
+ incomplete line on platforms with some "sed" implementations that
+ munge such a line. Work it around by avoiding to use "sed".
+ (merge df06201 jk/filter-branch-use-of-sed-on-incomplete-line later to maint).
+
+ * "git daemon" fails to build from the source under NO_IPV6
+ configuration (regression in 2.4).
+ (merge d358f77 jc/daemon-no-ipv6-for-2.4.1 later to maint).
+
+ * Some time ago, "git blame" (incorrectly) lost the convert_to_git()
+ call when synthesizing a fake "tip" commit that represents the
+ state in the working tree, which broke folks who record the history
+ with LF line ending to make their project portable across platforms
+ while terminating lines in their working tree files with CRLF for
+ their platform.
+ (merge 4bf256d tb/blame-resurrect-convert-to-git later to maint).
+
+ * We avoid setting core.worktree when the repository location is the
+ ".git" directory directly at the top level of the working tree, but
+ the code misdetected the case in which the working tree is at the
+ root level of the filesystem (which arguably is a silly thing to
+ do, but still valid).
+ (merge 84ccad8 jk/init-core-worktree-at-root later to maint).
+
+ * "git commit --date=now" or anything that relies on approxidate lost
+ the daylight-saving-time offset.
+ (merge f6e6362 jc/epochtime-wo-tz later to maint).
+
+ * Access to objects in repositories that borrow from another one on a
+ slow NFS server unnecessarily got more expensive due to recent code
+ becoming more cautious in a naive way not to lose objects to pruning.
+ (merge ee1c6c3 jk/prune-mtime later to maint).

+ * The codepaths that read .gitignore and .gitattributes files have been
+ taught that these files encoded in UTF-8 may have UTF-8 BOM marker at
+ the beginning; this makes it in line with what we do for configuration
+ files already.
+ (merge 27547e5 cn/bom-in-gitignore later to maint).
+
+ * a few helper scripts in the test suite did not report errors
+ correctly.
+ (merge de248e9 ep/fix-test-lib-functions-report later to maint).
+
+ * The default $HOME/.gitconfig file created upon "git config --global"
+ that edits it had incorrectly spelled user.name and user.email
+ entries in it.
+ (merge 7e11052 oh/fix-config-default-user-name-section later to maint).
+
+ * "git cat-file bl $blob" failed to barf even though there is no
+ object type that is "bl".
+ (merge b7994af jk/type-from-string-gently later to maint).
+
+ * 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.
+ (merge 0615173 jc/diff-no-index-d-f later to maint).
+
+ * "git rebase -i" moved the "current" command from "todo" to "done" a
+ bit too prematurely, losing a step when a "pick" did not even start.
+ (merge 8cbc57c ph/rebase-i-redo later to maint).
+
+ * The connection initiation code for "ssh" transport tried to absorb
+ differences between the stock "ssh" and Putty-supplied "plink" and
+ its derivatives, but the logic to tell that we are using "plink"
+ variants were too loose and falsely triggered when "plink" appeared
+ anywhere in the path (e.g. "/home/me/bin/uplink/ssh").
+ (merge baaf233 bc/connect-plink later to maint).
+
+ * We have prepended $GIT_EXEC_PATH and the path "git" is installed in
+ (typically "/usr/bin") to $PATH when invoking subprograms and hooks
+ for almost eternity, but the original use case the latter tried to
+ support was semi-bogus (i.e. install git to /opt/foo/git and run it
+ without having /opt/foo on $PATH), and more importantly it has
+ become less and less relevant as Git grew more mainstream (i.e. the
+ users would _want_ to have it on their $PATH). Stop prepending the
+ path in which "git" is installed to users' $PATH, as that would
+ interfere the command search order people depend on (e.g. they may
+ not like versions of programs that are unrelated to Git in /usr/bin
+ and want to override them by having different ones in /usr/local/bin
+ and have the latter directory earlier in their $PATH).
+ (merge a0b4507 jk/git-no-more-argv0-path-munging later to maint).
+
+ * core.excludesfile (defaulting to $XDG_HOME/git/ignore) is supposed
+ to be overridden by repository-specific .git/info/exclude file, but
+ the order was swapped from the beginning. This belatedly fixes it.
+ (merge 099d2d8 jc/gitignore-precedence later to maint).
+
+ * There was a commented-out (instead of being marked to expect
+ failure) test that documented a breakage that was fixed since the
+ test was written; turn it into a proper test.
+ (merge 66d2e04 sb/t1020-cleanup later to maint).
+
+ * The "log --decorate" enhancement in Git 2.4 that shows the commit
+ at the tip of the current branch e.g. "HEAD -> master", did not
+ work with --decorate=full.
+ (merge 429ad20 mg/log-decorate-HEAD later to maint).
+
+ * The ref API did not handle cases where 'refs/heads/xyzzy/frotz' is
+ removed at the same time as 'refs/heads/xyzzy' is added (or vice
+ versa) very well.
+ (merge c628edf mh/ref-directory-file later to maint).
+
+ * Multi-ref transaction support we merged a few releases ago
+ unnecessarily kept many file descriptors open, risking to fail with
+ resource exhaustion. This is for 2.4.x track.
+ (merge 185ce3a mh/write-refs-sooner-2.4 later to maint).
+
+ * "git bundle verify" did not diagnose extra parameters on the
+ command line.
+ (merge 7886cfa ps/bundle-verify-arg later to maint).
+
+ * Various documentation mark-up fixes to make the output more
+ consistent in general and also make AsciiDoctor (an alternative
+ formatter) happier.
+ (merge d0258b9 jk/asciidoc-markup-fix later to maint).
+ (merge ad3967a jk/stripspace-asciidoctor-fix later to maint).
+ (merge 975e382 ja/tutorial-asciidoctor-fix later to maint).
+
+ * The code to read pack-bitmap wanted to allocate a few hundred
+ pointers to a structure, but by mistake allocated and leaked memory
+ enough to hold that many actual structures. Correct the allocation
+ size and also have it on stack, as it is small enough.
+ (merge 599dc76 rs/plug-leak-in-pack-bitmaps later to maint).
+
+ * The pull.ff configuration was supposed to override the merge.ff
+ configuration, but it didn't.
+ (merge db9bb28 pt/pull-ff-vs-merge-ff later to maint).
+
+ * "git pull --log" and "git pull --no-log" worked as expected, but
+ "git pull --log=20" did not.
+ (merge 5061a44 pt/pull-log-n later to maint).
+
+ * "git rerere forget" in a repository without rerere enabled gave a
+ cryptic error message; it should be a silent no-op instead.
+ (merge 0544574 jk/rerere-forget-check-enabled later to maint).
+
+ * "git rebase -i" fired post-rewrite hook when it shouldn't (namely,
+ when it was told to stop sequencing with 'exec' insn).
+ (merge 141ff8f mm/rebase-i-post-rewrite-exec later to maint).
+
+ * Clarify that "log --raw" and "log --format=raw" are unrelated
+ concepts.
+ (merge 92de921 mm/log-format-raw-doc later to maint).
+
+ * Make "git stash something --help" error out, so that users can
+ safely say "git stash drop --help".
+ (merge 5ba2831 jk/stash-options later to maint).
+
+ * The clean/smudge interface did not work well when filtering an
+ empty contents (failed and then passed the empty input through).
+ It can be argued that a filter that produces anything but empty for
+ an empty input is nonsense, but if the user wants to do strange
+ things, then why not?
+ (merge f6a1e1e jh/filter-empty-contents later to maint).
+
+ * Communication between the HTTP server and http_backend process can
+ lead to a dead-lock when relaying a large ref negotiation request.
+ Diagnose the situation better, and mitigate it by reading such a
+ request first into core (to a reasonable limit).
+ (merge 636614f jk/http-backend-deadlock later to maint).
+
+ * "git clean pathspec..." tried to lstat(2) and complain even for
+ paths outside the given pathspec.
+ (merge 838d6a9 dt/clean-pathspec-filter-then-lstat later to maint).
+
+ * Recent "git prune" traverses young unreachable objects to safekeep
+ old objects in the reachability chain from them, which sometimes
+ caused error messages that are unnecessarily alarming.
+ (merge ce4e7b2 jk/squelch-missing-link-warning-for-unreachable later to maint).
+
+ * The configuration reader/writer uses mmap(2) interface to access
+ the files; when we find a directory, it barfed with "Out of memory?".
+ (merge 9ca0aaf jk/diagnose-config-mmap-failure later to maint).
+
+ * "color.diff.plain" was a misnomer; give it 'color.diff.context' as
+ a more logical synonym.
+ (merge 8dbf3eb jk/color-diff-plain-is-context later to maint).
+
+ * The setup code used to die when core.bare and core.worktree are set
+ inconsistently, even for commands that do not need working tree.
+ (merge fada767 jk/die-on-bogus-worktree-late later to maint).
+
+ * Recent Mac OS X updates breaks the logic to detect that the machine
+ is on the AC power in the sample pre-auto-gc script.
+ (merge c54c7b3 pa/auto-gc-mac-osx later to maint).
+
+ * "git commit --cleanup=scissors" was not careful enough to protect
+ against getting fooled by a line that looked like scissors.
+ (merge fbfa097 sg/commit-cleanup-scissors later to maint).
+
+ * "Have we lost a race with competing repack?" check was too
+ expensive, especially while receiving a huge object transfer
+ that runs index-pack (e.g. "clone" or "fetch").
+ (merge 0eeb077 jk/index-pack-reduce-recheck later to maint).
+
+ * The tcsh completion writes a bash scriptlet but that would have
+ failed for users with noclobber set.
+ (merge 0b1f688 af/tcsh-completion-noclobber later to maint).
+
+ * "git for-each-ref" reported "missing object" for 0{40} when it
+ encounters a broken ref. The lack of object whose name is 0{40} is
+ not the problem; the ref being broken is.
+ (merge 501cf47 mh/reporting-broken-refs-from-for-each-ref later to maint).
+
+ * Various fixes around "git am" that applies a patch to a history
+ that is not there yet.
+ (merge 6ea3b67 pt/am-abort-fix later to maint).
+
+ * "git fsck" used to ignore missing or invalid objects recorded in reflog.
+ (merge 19bf6c9 mh/fsck-reflog-entries later to maint).
+
+ * "git format-patch --ignore-if-upstream A..B" did not like to be fed
+ tags as boundary commits.
+ (merge 9b7a61d jc/do-not-feed-tags-to-clear-commit-marks later to maint).
+
+ * "git fetch --depth=<depth>" and "git clone --depth=<depth>" issued
+ a shallow transfer request even to an upload-pack that does not
+ support the capability.
+ (merge eb86a50 me/fetch-into-shallow-safety later to maint).
+
+ * "git rebase" did not exit with failure when format-patch it invoked
+ failed for whatever reason.
+ (merge 60d708b cb/rebase-am-exit-code later to maint).
+
+ * Fix a small bug in our use of umask() return value.
+ (merge 3096b2e jk/fix-refresh-utime later to maint).
+
+ * An ancient test framework enhancement to allow color was not
+ entirely correct; this makes it work even when tput needs to read
+ from the ~/.terminfo under the user's real HOME directory.
+ (merge d5c1b7c rh/test-color-avoid-terminfo-in-original-home later to maint).
+
+ * A minor bugfix when pack bitmap is used with "rev-list --count".
+ (merge c8a70d3 jk/rev-list-no-bitmap-while-pruning later to maint).
+
+ * "git config" failed to update the configuration file when the
+ underlying filesystem is incapable of renaming a file that is still
+ open.
+ (merge 7a64592 kb/config-unmap-before-renaming later to maint).
+
+ * Avoid possible ssize_t to int truncation.
+ (merge 6c8afe4 mh/strbuf-read-file-returns-ssize-t later to maint).
+
+ * When you say "!<ENTER>" while running say "git log", you'd confuse
+ yourself in the resulting shell, that may look as if you took
+ control back to the original shell you spawned "git log" from but
+ that isn't what is happening. To that new shell, we leaked
+ GIT_PAGER_IN_USE environment variable that was meant as a local
+ communication between the original "Git" and subprocesses that was
+ spawned by it after we launched the pager, which caused many
+ "interesting" things to happen, e.g. "git diff | cat" still paints
+ its output in color by default.
+
+ Stop leaking that environment variable to the pager's half of the
+ fork; we only need it on "Git" side when we spawn the pager.
+ (merge 124b519 jc/unexport-git-pager-in-use-in-pager later to maint).
+
+ * Abandoning an already applied change in "git rebase -i" with
+ "--continue" left CHERRY_PICK_HEAD and confused later steps.
+ (merge 0e0aff4 js/rebase-i-clean-up-upon-continue-to-skip later to maint).
+
+ * We used to ask libCURL to use the most secure authentication method
+ available when talking to an HTTP proxy only when we were told to
+ talk to one via configuration variables. We now ask libCURL to
+ always use the most secure authentication method, because the user
+ can tell libCURL to use an HTTP proxy via an environment variable
+ without using configuration variables.
+ (merge 5841520 et/http-proxyauth later to maint).
+
+ * A fix to a minor regression to "git fsck" in v2.2 era that started
+ complaining about a body-less tag object when it lacks a separator
+ empty line after its header to separate it with a non-existent body.
+ (merge 84d18c0 jc/fsck-retire-require-eoh later to maint).
+
+ * Code cleanups and documentation updates.

+Git v2.5.1 Release Notes
+========================
+
+Fixes since v2.5
+----------------
+
+ * Running an aliased command from a subdirectory when the .git thing
+ in the working tree is a gitfile pointing elsewhere did not work.
+
+ * Often a fast-import stream builds a new commit on top of the
+ previous commit it built, and it often unconditionally emits a
+ "from" command to specify the first parent, which can be omitted in
+ such a case. This caused fast-import to forget the tree of the
+ previous commit and then re-read it from scratch, which was
+ inefficient. Optimize for this common case.
+
+ * The "rev-parse --parseopt" mode parsed the option specification
+ and the argument hint in a strange way to allow '=' and other
+ special characters in the option name while forbidding them from
+ the argument hint. This made it impossible to define an option
+ like "--pair <key>=<value>" with "pair=key=value" specification,
+ which instead would have defined a "--pair=key <value>" option.
+
+ * A "rebase" replays changes of the local branch on top of something
+ else, as such they are placed in stage #3 and referred to as
+ "theirs", while the changes in the new base, typically a foreign
+ work, are placed in stage #2 and referred to as "ours". Clarify
+ the "checkout --ours/--theirs".
+
+ * An experimental "untracked cache" feature used uname(2) in a
+ slightly unportable way.
+
+ * "sparse checkout" misbehaved for a path that is excluded from the
+ checkout when switching between branches that differ at the path.
+
+ * The low-level "git send-pack" did not honor 'user.signingkey'
+ configuration variable when sending a signed-push.
+
+ * An attempt to delete a ref by pushing into a repository whose HEAD
+ symbolic reference points at an unborn branch that cannot be
+ created due to ref D/F conflict (e.g. refs/heads/a/b exists, HEAD
+ points at refs/heads/a) failed.
+
+ * "git subtree" (in contrib/) depended on "git log" output to be
+ stable, which was a no-no. Apply a workaround to force a
+ particular date format.
+
+ * "git clone $URL" in recent releases of Git contains a regression in
+ the code that invents a new repository name incorrectly based on
+ the $URL. This has been corrected.
+ (merge db2e220 jk/guess-repo-name-regression-fix later to maint).
+
+ * Running tests with the "-x" option to make them verbose had some
+ unpleasant interactions with other features of the test suite.
+ (merge 9b5fe78 jk/test-with-x later to maint).
+
+ * "git pull" in recent releases of Git has a regression in the code
+ that allows custom path to the --upload-pack=<program>. This has
+ been corrected.
+
+ * pipe() emulation used in Git for Windows looked at a wrong variable
+ when checking for an error from an _open_osfhandle() call.
+
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
+clean-ups.

+Git 2.6 Release Notes
+=====================
+
+Updates since v2.5
+------------------
+
+UI, Workflows & Features
+
+ * An asterisk as a substring (as opposed to the entirety) of a path
+ component for both side of a refspec, e.g.
+ "refs/heads/o*:refs/remotes/heads/i*", is now allowed.
+
+ * New userdiff pattern definition for fountain screenwriting markup
+ format has been added.
+
+ * "git log" and friends learned a new "--date=format:..." option to
+ format timestamps using system's strftime(3).
+
+ * "git fast-import" learned to respond to the get-mark command via
+ its cat-blob-fd interface.
+
+ * "git rebase -i" learned "drop commit-object-name subject" command
+ as another way to skip replaying of a commit.
+
+ * A new configuration variable can enable "--follow" automatically
+ when "git log" is run with one pathspec argument.
+
+ * "git status" learned to show a more detailed information regarding
+ the "rebase -i" session in progress.
+
+ * "git cat-file" learned "--batch-all-objects" option to enumerate all
+ available objects in the repository more quickly than "rev-list
+ --all --objects" (the output includes unreachable objects, though).
+
+ * "git fsck" learned to ignore errors on a set of known-to-be-bad
+ objects, and also allows the warning levels of various kinds of
+ non-critical breakages to be tweaked.
+
+ * "git rebase -i"'s list of todo is made configurable.
+
+ * "git send-email" now performs alias-expansion on names that are
+ given via --cccmd, etc.
+
+ * An environment variable GIT_REPLACE_REF_BASE tells Git to look into
+ refs hierarchy other than refs/replace/ for the object replacement
+ data.
+
+ * Allow untracked cache (experimental) to be used when sparse
+ checkout (experimental) is also in use.
+
+ * "git pull --rebase" has been taught to pay attention to
+ rebase.autostash configuration.
+
+ * The command-line completion script (in contrib/) has been updated.
+
+ * A negative !ref entry in multi-value transfer.hideRefs
+ configuration can be used to say "don't hide this one".
+
+ * After "git am" without "-3" stops, running "git am -" pays attention
+ to "-3" only for the patch that caused the original invocation
+ to stop.
+
+ * When linked worktree is used, simultaneous "notes merge" instances
+ for the same ref in refs/notes/* are prevented from stomping on
+ each other.
+
+ * "git send-email" learned a new option --smtp-auth to limit the SMTP
+ AUTH mechanisms to be used to a subset of what the system library
+ supports.
+
+ * A new configuration variable http.sslVersion can be used to specify
+ what specific version of SSL/TLS to use to make a connection.
+
+
+Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
+
+ * In preparation for allowing different "backends" to store the refs
+ in a way different from the traditional "one ref per file in
+ $GIT_DIR or in a $GIT_DIR/packed-refs file" filesystem storage,
+ direct filesystem access to ref-like things like CHERRY_PICK_HEAD
+ from scripts and programs has been reduced.
+
+ * Computation of untracked status indicator by bash prompt
+ script (in contrib/) has been optimized.
+
+ * Memory use reduction when commit-slab facility is used to annotate
+ sparsely (which is not recommended in the first place).
+
+ * Clean up refs API and make "git clone" less intimate with the
+ implementation detail.
+
+ * "git pull" was reimplemented in C.
+
+ * The packet tracing machinery allows to capture an incoming pack
+ data to a file for debugging.
+
+ * Move machinery to parse human-readable scaled numbers like 1k, 4M,
+ and 2G as an option parameter's value from pack-objects to
+ parse-options API, to make it available to other codepaths.
+
+ * "git verify-tag" and "git verify-commit" have been taught to share
+ more code, and then learned to optionally show the verification
+ message from the underlying GPG implementation.
+
+ * Various enhancements around "git am" reading patches generated by
+ foreign SCM have been made.
+
+ * Ref listing by "git branch -l" and "git tag -l" commands has
+ started to be rebuilt, based on the for-each-ref machinery.
+
+ * The code to perform multi-tree merges has been taught to repopulate
+ the cache-tree upon a successful merge into the index, so that
+ subsequent "diff-index --cached" (hence "status") and "write-tree"
+ (hence "commit") will go faster.
+
+ The same logic in "git checkout" may now be removed, but that is a
+ separate issue.
+
+ * Tests that assume how reflogs are represented on the filesystem too
+ much have been corrected.
+
+ * "git am" has been rewritten in "C".
+
+ * git_path() and mkpath() are handy helper functions but it is easy
+ to misuse, as the callers need to be careful to keep the number of
+ active results below 4. Their uses have been reduced.
+
+ * The "lockfile" API has been rebuilt on top of a new "tempfile" API.
+
+ * To prepare for allowing a different "ref" backend to be plugged in
+ to the system, update_ref()/delete_ref() have been taught about
+ ref-like things like MERGE_HEAD that are per-worktree (they will
+ always be written to the filesystem inside $GIT_DIR).
+
+
+Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
+
+
+Fixes since v2.5
+----------------
+
+Unless otherwise noted, all the fixes since v2.5 in the maintenance
+track are contained in this release (see the maintenance releases'
+notes for details).
+
+ * "git subtree" (in contrib/) depended on "git log" output to be
+ stable, which was a no-no. Apply a workaround to force a
+ particular date format.
+ (merge e7aac44 da/subtree-date-confusion later to maint).
+
+ * An attempt to delete a ref by pushing into a repository whose HEAD
+ symbolic reference points at an unborn branch that cannot be
+ created due to ref D/F conflict (e.g. refs/heads/a/b exists, HEAD
+ points at refs/heads/a) failed.
+ (merge b112b14 jx/do-not-crash-receive-pack-wo-head later to maint).
+
+ * The low-level "git send-pack" did not honor 'user.signingkey'
+ configuration variable when sending a signed-push.
+ (merge d830d39 db/send-pack-user-signingkey later to maint).
+
+ * "sparse checkout" misbehaved for a path that is excluded from the
+ checkout when switching between branches that differ at the path.
+ (merge 7d78241 as/sparse-checkout-removal later to maint).
+
+ * An experimental "untracked cache" feature used uname(2) in a
+ slightly unportable way.
+ (merge 100e433 cb/uname-in-untracked later to maint).
+
+ * A "rebase" replays changes of the local branch on top of something
+ else, as such they are placed in stage #3 and referred to as
+ "theirs", while the changes in the new base, typically a foreign
+ work, are placed in stage #2 and referred to as "ours". Clarify
+ the "checkout --ours/--theirs".
+ (merge f303016 se/doc-checkout-ours-theirs later to maint).
+
+ * The "rev-parse --parseopt" mode parsed the option specification
+ and the argument hint in a strange way to allow '=' and other
+ special characters in the option name while forbidding them from
+ the argument hint. This made it impossible to define an option
+ like "--pair <key>=<value>" with "pair=key=value" specification,
+ which instead would have defined a "--pair=key <value>" option.
+ (merge 2d893df ib/scripted-parse-opt-better-hint-string later to maint).
+
+ * Often a fast-import stream builds a new commit on top of the
+ previous commit it built, and it often unconditionally emits a
+ "from" command to specify the first parent, which can be omitted in
+ such a case. This caused fast-import to forget the tree of the
+ previous commit and then re-read it from scratch, which was
+ inefficient. Optimize for this common case.
+ (merge 0df3245 mh/fast-import-optimize-current-from later to maint).
+

+Values of many variables are treated as a simple string, but there
+are variables that take values of specific types and there are rules
+as to how to spell them.
+
+boolean::
+
+ When a variable is said to take a boolean value, many
+ synonyms are accepted for 'true' and 'false'; these are all
+ case-insensitive.
+
+ true;; Boolean true can be spelled as `yes`, `on`, `true`,

+ `false`, or `0`.
++
+When converting value to the canonical form using '--bool' type
+specifier; 'git config' will ensure that the output is "true" or
+"false" (spelled in lowercase).
+
+integer::
+ The value for many variables that specify various sizes can
+ be suffixed with `k`, `M`,... to mean "scale the number by
+ 1024", "by 1024x1024", etc.
+
+color::
+ The value for a variables that takes a color is a list of
+ colors (at most two) and attributes (at most one), separated
+ by spaces. The colors accepted are `normal`, `black`,
+ `red`, `green`, `yellow`, `blue`, `magenta`, `cyan` and
+ `white`; the attributes are `bold`, `dim`, `ul`, `blink` and
+ `reverse`. The first color given is the foreground; the
+ second is the background. The position of the attribute, if
+ any, doesn't matter. Attributes may be turned off specifically
+ by prefixing them with `no` (e.g., `noreverse`, `noul`, etc).
++
+Colors (foreground and background) may also be given as numbers between
+0 and 255; these use ANSI 256-color mode (but note that not all
+terminals may support this). If your terminal supports it, you may also
+specify 24-bit RGB values as hex, like `#ff0ab3`.
++
+The attributes are meant to be reset at the beginning of each item
+in the colored output, so setting color.decorate.branch to `black`
+will paint that branch name in a plain `black`, even if the previous
+thing on the same output line (e.g. opening parenthesis before the
+list of branch names in `log --decorate` output) is set to be

-Use "git bisect" to get a short usage description, and "git bisect
-help" or "git bisect -h" to get a long usage description.
+This command uses a binary search algorithm to find which commit in
+your project's history introduced a bug. You use it by first telling
+it a "bad" commit that is known to contain the bug, and a "good"
+commit that is known to be before the bug was introduced. Then `git
+bisect` picks a commit between those two endpoints and asks you
+whether the selected commit is "good" or "bad". It continues narrowing
+down the range until it finds the exact commit that introduced the
+change.
Basic bisect commands: start, bad, good
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-Using the Linux kernel tree as an example, basic use of the bisect
-command is as follows:
+As an example, suppose you are trying to find the commit that broke a
+feature that was known to work in version `v2.6.13-rc2` of your
+project. You start a bisect session as follows:
------------------------------------------------
$ git bisect start
$ git bisect bad # Current version is bad
-$ git bisect good v2.6.13-rc2 # v2.6.13-rc2 was the last version
- # tested that was good
+$ git bisect good v2.6.13-rc2 # v2.6.13-rc2 is known to be good
------------------------------------------------
-When you have specified at least one bad and one good version, the
-command bisects the revision tree and outputs something similar to
-the following:
+Once you have specified at least one bad and one good commit, `git
+bisect` selects a commit in the middle of that range of history,
+checks it out, and outputs something similar to the following:
------------------------------------------------
-Bisecting: 675 revisions left to test after this
+Bisecting: 675 revisions left to test after this (roughly 10 steps)

-The state in the middle of the set of revisions is then checked out.
-You would now compile that kernel and boot it. If the booted kernel
-works correctly, you would then issue the following command:
+You should now compile the checked-out version and test it. If that
+version works correctly, type

-$ git bisect good # this one is good
+$ git bisect good

+ any alternate object stores (not just reachable objects).
+ Requires `--batch` or `--batch-check` be specified. Note that
+ the objects are visited in order sorted by their hashes.
+

+ With --batch or --batch-check, follow symlinks inside the
+ repository when requesting objects with extended SHA-1
+ expressions of the form tree-ish:path-in-tree. Instead of
+ providing output about the link itself, provide output about
+ the linked-to object. If a symlink points outside the

+print the same thing, as would `HEAD:dir/link`, as they both point at

+Git Tools
+=========
+When Git was young, people looking for third-party Git-related tools came

+maintained here. These days, however, search engines fill that role much
+more efficiently, so this manually-maintained list has been retired.

+git-worktree - Manage multiple working trees
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git worktree add' [-f] [--detach] [-b <new-branch>] <path> [<branch>]
+'git worktree prune' [-n] [-v] [--expire <expire>]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+Manage multiple working trees attached to the same repository.
+
+A git repository can support multiple working trees, allowing you to check
+out more than one branch at a time. With `git worktree add` a new working
+tree is associated with the repository. This new working tree is called a
+"linked working tree" as opposed to the "main working tree" prepared by "git
+init" or "git clone". A repository has one main working tree (if it's not a
+bare repository) and zero or more linked working trees.
+
+When you are done with a linked working tree you can simply delete it.
+The working tree's administrative files in the repository (see
+"DETAILS" below) will eventually be removed automatically (see
+`gc.worktreePruneExpire` in linkgit:git-config[1]), or you can run
+`git worktree prune` in the main or any linked working tree to
+clean up any stale administrative files.
+
+If you move a linked working tree to another file system, or
+within a file system that does not support hard links, you need to run
+at least one git command inside the linked working tree
+(e.g. `git status`) in order to update its administrative files in the
+repository so that they do not get automatically pruned.
+
+If a linked working tree is stored on a portable device or network share
+which is not always mounted, you can prevent its administrative files from
+being pruned by creating a file named 'locked' alongside the other
+administrative files, optionally containing a plain text reason that
+pruning should be suppressed. See section "DETAILS" for more information.
+
+COMMANDS
+--------
+add <path> [<branch>]::
+
+Create `<path>` and checkout `<branch>` into it. The new working directory
+is linked to the current repository, sharing everything except working
+directory specific files such as HEAD, index, etc.
++
+If `<branch>` is omitted and neither `-b` nor `-B` nor `--detached` used,
+then, as a convenience, a new branch based at HEAD is created automatically,
+as if `-b $(basename <path>)` was specified.
+
+prune::
+
+Prune working tree information in $GIT_DIR/worktrees.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+
+-f::
+--force::
+ By default, `add` refuses to create a new working tree when `<branch>`
+ is already checked out by another working tree. This option overrides
+ that safeguard.
+
+-b <new-branch>::
+-B <new-branch>::
+ With `add`, create a new branch named `<new-branch>` starting at
+ `<branch>`, and check out `<new-branch>` into the new working tree.
+ If `<branch>` is omitted, it defaults to HEAD.
+ By default, `-b` refuses to create a new branch if it already
+ exists. `-B` overrides this safeguard, resetting `<new-branch>` to
+ `<branch>`.
+

+
+DETAILS
+-------
+Each linked working tree has a private sub-directory in the repository's
+$GIT_DIR/worktrees directory. The private sub-directory's name is usually
+the base name of the linked working tree's path, possibly appended with a
+number to make it unique. For example, when `$GIT_DIR=/path/main/.git` the
+command `git worktree add /path/other/test-next next` creates the linked
+working tree in `/path/other/test-next` and also creates a
+`$GIT_DIR/worktrees/test-next` directory (or `$GIT_DIR/worktrees/test-next1`
+if `test-next` is already taken).
+
+Within a linked working tree, $GIT_DIR is set to point to this private
+directory (e.g. `/path/main/.git/worktrees/test-next` in the example) and
+$GIT_COMMON_DIR is set to point back to the main working tree's $GIT_DIR
+(e.g. `/path/main/.git`). These settings are made in a `.git` file located at
+the top directory of the linked working tree.
+
+Path resolution via `git rev-parse --git-path` uses either
+$GIT_DIR or $GIT_COMMON_DIR depending on the path. For example, in the
+linked working tree `git rev-parse --git-path HEAD` returns
+`/path/main/.git/worktrees/test-next/HEAD` (not
+`/path/other/test-next/.git/HEAD` or `/path/main/.git/HEAD`) while `git
+rev-parse --git-path refs/heads/master` uses
+$GIT_COMMON_DIR and returns `/path/main/.git/refs/heads/master`,
+since refs are shared across all working trees.
+
+See linkgit:gitrepository-layout[5] for more information. The rule of
+thumb is do not make any assumption about whether a path belongs to
+$GIT_DIR or $GIT_COMMON_DIR when you need to directly access something
+inside $GIT_DIR. Use `git rev-parse --git-path` to get the final path.
+
+To prevent a $GIT_DIR/worktrees entry from being pruned (which
+can be useful in some situations, such as when the
+entry's working tree is stored on a portable device), add a file named
+'locked' to the entry's directory. The file contains the reason in
+plain text. For example, if a linked working tree's `.git` file points
+to `/path/main/.git/worktrees/test-next` then a file named
+`/path/main/.git/worktrees/test-next/locked` will prevent the
+`test-next` entry from being pruned. See
+linkgit:gitrepository-layout[5] for details.
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+You are in the middle of a refactoring session and your boss comes in and
+demands that you fix something immediately. You might typically use
+linkgit:git-stash[1] to store your changes away temporarily, however, your
+working tree is in such a state of disarray (with new, moved, and removed
+files, and other bits and pieces strewn around) that you don't want to risk
+disturbing any of it. Instead, you create a temporary linked working tree to
+make the emergency fix, remove it when done, and then resume your earlier
+refactoring session.
+
+------------
+$ git worktree add -b emergency-fix ../temp master
+$ pushd ../temp
+# ... hack hack hack ...
+$ git commit -a -m 'emergency fix for boss'
+$ popd
+$ rm -rf ../temp
+$ git worktree prune
+------------
+
+BUGS
+----
+Multiple checkout in general is still experimental, and the support
+for submodules is incomplete. It is NOT recommended to make multiple
+checkouts of a superproject.
+
+git-worktree could provide more automation for tasks currently
+performed manually, such as:
+
+- `remove` to remove a linked working tree and its administrative files (and
+ warn if the working tree is dirty)
+- `mv` to move or rename a working tree and update its administrative files
+- `list` to list linked working trees
+- `lock` to prevent automatic pruning of administrative files (for instance,
+ for a working tree on a portable device)

+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+This hook is invoked by 'git-receive-pack' on the remote repository,
+which happens when a 'git push' is done on a local repository, when
+the push tries to update the branch that is currently checked out
+and the `receive.denyCurrentBranch` configuration variable is set to
+`updateInstead`. Such a push by default is refused if the working
+tree and the index of the remote repository has any difference from
+the currently checked out commit; when both the working tree and the
+index match the current commit, they are updated to match the newly
+pushed tip of the branch. This hook is to be used to override the
+default behaviour.
+
+The hook receives the commit with which the tip of the current
+branch is going to be updated. It can exit with a non-zero status
+to refuse the push (when it does so, it must not modify the index or
+the working tree). Or it can make any necessary changes to the
+working tree and to the index to bring them to the desired state
+when the tip of the current branch is updated to the new commit, and
+exit with a zero status.
+
+For example, the hook can simply run `git read-tree -u -m HEAD "$1"`
+in order to emulate 'git fetch' that is run in the reverse direction
+with `git push`, as the two-tree form of `read-tree -u -m` is
+essentially the same as `git checkout` that switches branches while
+keeping the local changes in the working tree that do not interfere
+with the difference between the branches.

+The adventure continues...
+--------------------------
+
+I ended up doing this again! Same entity, new hardware. The assumption
+at this point is that the old disk corrupted the packfile, and then the
+corruption was migrated to the new hardware (because it was done by
+rsync or similar, and no fsck was done at the time of migration).
+
+This time, the affected blob was over 20 megabytes, which was far too
+large to do a brute-force on. I followed the instructions above to
+create the `zlib` file. I then used the `inflate` program below to pull
+the corrupted data from that. Examining that output gave me a hint about
+where in the file the corruption was. But now I was working with the
+file itself, not the zlib contents. So knowing the sha1 of the object
+and the approximate area of the corruption, I used the `sha1-munge`
+program below to brute-force the correct byte.
+
+Here's the inflate program (it's essentially `gunzip` but without the
+`.gz` header processing):

+Error reporting in git
+======================
+
+`die`, `usage`, `error`, and `warning` report errors of various
+kinds.
+
+- `die` is for fatal application errors. It prints a message to
+ the user and exits with status 128.
+
+- `usage` is for errors in command line usage. After printing its
+ message, it exits with status 129. (See also `usage_with_options`
+ in the link:api-parse-options.html[parse-options API].)
+
+- `error` is for non-fatal library errors. It prints a message
+ to the user and returns -1 for convenience in signaling the error
+ to the caller.
+
+- `warning` is for reporting situations that probably should not
+ occur but which the user (and Git) can continue to work around
+ without running into too many problems. Like `error`, it
+ returns -1 after reporting the situation to the caller.
+
+Customizable error handlers
+---------------------------
+
+The default behavior of `die` and `error` is to write a message to
+stderr and then exit or return as appropriate. This behavior can be
+overridden using `set_die_routine` and `set_error_routine`. For
+example, "git daemon" uses set_die_routine to write the reason `die`
+was called to syslog before exiting.
+
+Library errors
+--------------
+
+Functions return a negative integer on error. Details beyond that
+vary from function to function:
+
+- Some functions return -1 for all errors. Others return a more
+ specific value depending on how the caller might want to react
+ to the error.
+
+- Some functions report the error to stderr with `error`,
+ while others leave that for the caller to do.
+
+- errno is not meaningful on return from most functions (except
+ for thin wrappers for system calls).
+
+Check the function's API documentation to be sure.
+
+Caller-handled errors
+---------------------
+
+An increasing number of functions take a parameter 'struct strbuf *err'.
+On error, such functions append a message about what went wrong to the
+'err' strbuf. The message is meant to be complete enough to be passed
+to `die` or `error` as-is. For example:
+
+ if (ref_transaction_commit(transaction, &err))
+ die("%s", err.buf);
+
+The 'err' parameter will be untouched if no error occurred, so multiple
+function calls can be chained:
+
+ t = ref_transaction_begin(&err);
+ if (!t ||
+ ref_transaction_update(t, "HEAD", ..., &err) ||
+ ret_transaction_commit(t, &err))
+ die("%s", err.buf);
+
+The 'err' parameter must be a pointer to a valid strbuf. To silence
+a message, pass a strbuf that is explicitly ignored:
+
+ if (thing_that_can_fail_in_an_ignorable_way(..., &err))
+ /* This failure is okay. */
+ strbuf_reset(&err);

-lockfile API
-============
-
-The lockfile API serves two purposes:
-
-* Mutual exclusion and atomic file updates. When we want to change a
- file, we create a lockfile `<filename>.lock`, write the new file
- contents into it, and then rename the lockfile to its final
- destination `<filename>`. We create the `<filename>.lock` file with
- `O_CREAT|O_EXCL` so that we can notice and fail if somebody else has
- already locked the file, then atomically rename the lockfile to its
- final destination to commit the changes and unlock the file.
-
-* Automatic cruft removal. If the program exits after we lock a file
- but before the changes have been committed, we want to make sure
- that we remove the lockfile. This is done by remembering the
- lockfiles we have created in a linked list and setting up an
- `atexit(3)` handler and a signal handler that clean up the
- lockfiles. This mechanism ensures that outstanding lockfiles are
- cleaned up if the program exits (including when `die()` is called)
- or if the program dies on a signal.
-
-Please note that lockfiles only block other writers. Readers do not
-block, but they are guaranteed to see either the old contents of the
-file or the new contents of the file (assuming that the filesystem
-implements `rename(2)` atomically).
-
-
-Calling sequence
-----------------
-
-The caller:
-
-* Allocates a `struct lock_file` either as a static variable or on the
- heap, initialized to zeros. Once you use the structure to call the
- `hold_lock_file_*` family of functions, it belongs to the lockfile
- subsystem and its storage must remain valid throughout the life of
- the program (i.e. you cannot use an on-stack variable to hold this
- structure).
-
-* Attempts to create a lockfile by passing that variable and the path
- of the final destination (e.g. `$GIT_DIR/index`) to
- `hold_lock_file_for_update` or `hold_lock_file_for_append`.
-
-* Writes new content for the destination file by either:
-
- * writing to the file descriptor returned by the `hold_lock_file_*`
- functions (also available via `lock->fd`).
-
- * calling `fdopen_lock_file` to get a `FILE` pointer for the open
- file and writing to the file using stdio.
-
-When finished writing, the caller can:
-
-* Close the file descriptor and rename the lockfile to its final
- destination by calling `commit_lock_file` or `commit_lock_file_to`.
-
-* Close the file descriptor and remove the lockfile by calling
- `rollback_lock_file`.
-
-* Close the file descriptor without removing or renaming the lockfile
- by calling `close_lock_file`, and later call `commit_lock_file`,
- `commit_lock_file_to`, `rollback_lock_file`, or `reopen_lock_file`.
-
-Even after the lockfile is committed or rolled back, the `lock_file`
-object must not be freed or altered by the caller. However, it may be
-reused; just pass it to another call of `hold_lock_file_for_update` or
-`hold_lock_file_for_append`.
-
-If the program exits before you have called one of `commit_lock_file`,
-`commit_lock_file_to`, `rollback_lock_file`, or `close_lock_file`, an
-`atexit(3)` handler will close and remove the lockfile, rolling back
-any uncommitted changes.
-
-If you need to close the file descriptor you obtained from a
-`hold_lock_file_*` function yourself, do so by calling
-`close_lock_file`. You should never call `close(2)` or `fclose(3)`
-yourself! Otherwise the `struct lock_file` structure would still think
-that the file descriptor needs to be closed, and a commit or rollback
-would result in duplicate calls to `close(2)`. Worse yet, if you close
-and then later open another file descriptor for a completely different
-purpose, then a commit or rollback might close that unrelated file
-descriptor.
-
-
-Error handling
---------------
-
-The `hold_lock_file_*` functions return a file descriptor on success
-or -1 on failure (unless `LOCK_DIE_ON_ERROR` is used; see below). On
-errors, `errno` describes the reason for failure. Errors can be
-reported by passing `errno` to one of the following helper functions:
-
-unable_to_lock_message::
-
- Append an appropriate error message to a `strbuf`.
-
-unable_to_lock_error::
-
- Emit an appropriate error message using `error()`.
-
-unable_to_lock_die::
-
- Emit an appropriate error message and `die()`.
-
-Similarly, `commit_lock_file`, `commit_lock_file_to`, and
-`close_lock_file` return 0 on success. On failure they set `errno`
-appropriately, do their best to roll back the lockfile, and return -1.
-
-
-Flags
------
-
-The following flags can be passed to `hold_lock_file_for_update` or
-`hold_lock_file_for_append`:
-
-LOCK_NO_DEREF::
-
- Usually symbolic links in the destination path are resolved
- and the lockfile is created by adding ".lock" to the resolved
- path. If `LOCK_NO_DEREF` is set, then the lockfile is created
- by adding ".lock" to the path argument itself. This option is
- used, for example, when locking a symbolic reference, which
- for backwards-compatibility reasons can be a symbolic link
- containing the name of the referred-to-reference.
-
-LOCK_DIE_ON_ERROR::
-
- If a lock is already taken for the file, `die()` with an error
- message. If this option is not specified, trying to lock a
- file that is already locked returns -1 to the caller.
-
-
-The functions
--------------
-
-hold_lock_file_for_update::
-
- Take a pointer to `struct lock_file`, the path of the file to
- be locked (e.g. `$GIT_DIR/index`) and a flags argument (see
- above). Attempt to create a lockfile for the destination and
- return the file descriptor for writing to the file.
-
-hold_lock_file_for_append::
-
- Like `hold_lock_file_for_update`, but before returning copy
- the existing contents of the file (if any) to the lockfile and
- position its write pointer at the end of the file.
-
-fdopen_lock_file::
-
- Associate a stdio stream with the lockfile. Return NULL
- (*without* rolling back the lockfile) on error. The stream is
- closed automatically when `close_lock_file` is called or when
- the file is committed or rolled back.
-
-get_locked_file_path::
-
- Return the path of the file that is locked by the specified
- lock_file object. The caller must free the memory.
-
-commit_lock_file::
-
- Take a pointer to the `struct lock_file` initialized with an
- earlier call to `hold_lock_file_for_update` or
- `hold_lock_file_for_append`, close the file descriptor, and
- rename the lockfile to its final destination. Return 0 upon
- success. On failure, roll back the lock file and return -1,
- with `errno` set to the value from the failing call to
- `close(2)` or `rename(2)`. It is a bug to call
- `commit_lock_file` for a `lock_file` object that is not
- currently locked.
-
-commit_lock_file_to::
-
- Like `commit_lock_file()`, except that it takes an explicit
- `path` argument to which the lockfile should be renamed. The
- `path` must be on the same filesystem as the lock file.
-
-rollback_lock_file::
-
- Take a pointer to the `struct lock_file` initialized with an
- earlier call to `hold_lock_file_for_update` or
- `hold_lock_file_for_append`, close the file descriptor and
- remove the lockfile. It is a NOOP to call
- `rollback_lock_file()` for a `lock_file` object that has
- already been committed or rolled back.
-
-close_lock_file::
-
- Take a pointer to the `struct lock_file` initialized with an
- earlier call to `hold_lock_file_for_update` or
- `hold_lock_file_for_append`. Close the file descriptor (and
- the file pointer if it has been opened using
- `fdopen_lock_file`). Return 0 upon success. On failure to
- `close(2)`, return a negative value and roll back the lock
- file. Usually `commit_lock_file`, `commit_lock_file_to`, or
- `rollback_lock_file` should eventually be called if
- `close_lock_file` succeeds.
-
-reopen_lock_file::
-
- Re-open a lockfile that has been closed (using
- `close_lock_file`) but not yet committed or rolled back. This
- can be used to implement a sequence of operations like the
- following:
-
- * Lock file.
-
- * Write new contents to lockfile, then `close_lock_file` to
- cause the contents to be written to disk.
-
- * Pass the name of the lockfile to another program to allow it
- (and nobody else) to inspect the contents you wrote, while
- still holding the lock yourself.
-
- * `reopen_lock_file` to reopen the lockfile. Make further
- updates to the contents.
-
- * `commit_lock_file` to make the final version permanent.

-strbuf API
-==========
-
-strbuf's are meant to be used with all the usual C string and memory
-APIs. Given that the length of the buffer is known, it's often better to
-use the mem* functions than a str* one (memchr vs. strchr e.g.).
-Though, one has to be careful about the fact that str* functions often
-stop on NULs and that strbufs may have embedded NULs.
-
-A strbuf is NUL terminated for convenience, but no function in the
-strbuf API actually relies on the string being free of NULs.
-
-strbufs have some invariants that are very important to keep in mind:
-
-. The `buf` member is never NULL, so it can be used in any usual C
-string operations safely. strbuf's _have_ to be initialized either by
-`strbuf_init()` or by `= STRBUF_INIT` before the invariants, though.
-+
-Do *not* assume anything on what `buf` really is (e.g. if it is
-allocated memory or not), use `strbuf_detach()` to unwrap a memory
-buffer from its strbuf shell in a safe way. That is the sole supported
-way. This will give you a malloced buffer that you can later `free()`.
-+
-However, it is totally safe to modify anything in the string pointed by
-the `buf` member, between the indices `0` and `len-1` (inclusive).
-
-. The `buf` member is a byte array that has at least `len + 1` bytes
- allocated. The extra byte is used to store a `'\0'`, allowing the
- `buf` member to be a valid C-string. Every strbuf function ensure this
- invariant is preserved.
-+
-NOTE: It is OK to "play" with the buffer directly if you work it this
- way:
-+
-----
-strbuf_grow(sb, SOME_SIZE); <1>
-strbuf_setlen(sb, sb->len + SOME_OTHER_SIZE);
-----
-<1> Here, the memory array starting at `sb->buf`, and of length
-`strbuf_avail(sb)` is all yours, and you can be sure that
-`strbuf_avail(sb)` is at least `SOME_SIZE`.
-+
-NOTE: `SOME_OTHER_SIZE` must be smaller or equal to `strbuf_avail(sb)`.
-+
-Doing so is safe, though if it has to be done in many places, adding the
-missing API to the strbuf module is the way to go.
-+
-WARNING: Do _not_ assume that the area that is yours is of size `alloc
-- 1` even if it's true in the current implementation. Alloc is somehow a
-"private" member that should not be messed with. Use `strbuf_avail()`
-instead.
-
-Data structures
----------------
-
-* `struct strbuf`
-
-This is the string buffer structure. The `len` member can be used to
-determine the current length of the string, and `buf` member provides
-access to the string itself.
-
-Functions
----------
-
-* Life cycle
-
-`strbuf_init`::
-
- Initialize the structure. The second parameter can be zero or a bigger
- number to allocate memory, in case you want to prevent further reallocs.
-
-`strbuf_release`::
-
- Release a string buffer and the memory it used. You should not use the
- string buffer after using this function, unless you initialize it again.
-
-`strbuf_detach`::
-
- Detach the string from the strbuf and returns it; you now own the
- storage the string occupies and it is your responsibility from then on
- to release it with `free(3)` when you are done with it.
-
-`strbuf_attach`::
-
- Attach a string to a buffer. You should specify the string to attach,
- the current length of the string and the amount of allocated memory.
- The amount must be larger than the string length, because the string you
- pass is supposed to be a NUL-terminated string. This string _must_ be
- malloc()ed, and after attaching, the pointer cannot be relied upon
- anymore, and neither be free()d directly.
-
-`strbuf_swap`::
-
- Swap the contents of two string buffers.
-
-* Related to the size of the buffer
-
-`strbuf_avail`::
-
- Determine the amount of allocated but unused memory.
-
-`strbuf_grow`::
-
- Ensure that at least this amount of unused memory is available after
- `len`. This is used when you know a typical size for what you will add
- and want to avoid repetitive automatic resizing of the underlying buffer.
- This is never a needed operation, but can be critical for performance in
- some cases.
-
-`strbuf_setlen`::
-
- Set the length of the buffer to a given value. This function does *not*
- allocate new memory, so you should not perform a `strbuf_setlen()` to a
- length that is larger than `len + strbuf_avail()`. `strbuf_setlen()` is
- just meant as a 'please fix invariants from this strbuf I just messed
- with'.
-
-`strbuf_reset`::
-
- Empty the buffer by setting the size of it to zero.
-
-* Related to the contents of the buffer
-
-`strbuf_trim`::
-
- Strip whitespace from the beginning and end of a string.
- Equivalent to performing `strbuf_rtrim()` followed by `strbuf_ltrim()`.
-
-`strbuf_rtrim`::
-
- Strip whitespace from the end of a string.
-
-`strbuf_ltrim`::
-
- Strip whitespace from the beginning of a string.
-
-`strbuf_reencode`::
-
- Replace the contents of the strbuf with a reencoded form. Returns -1
- on error, 0 on success.
-
-`strbuf_tolower`::
-
- Lowercase each character in the buffer using `tolower`.
-
-`strbuf_cmp`::
-
- Compare two buffers. Returns an integer less than, equal to, or greater
- than zero if the first buffer is found, respectively, to be less than,
- to match, or be greater than the second buffer.
-
-* Adding data to the buffer
-
-NOTE: All of the functions in this section will grow the buffer as necessary.
-If they fail for some reason other than memory shortage and the buffer hadn't
-been allocated before (i.e. the `struct strbuf` was set to `STRBUF_INIT`),
-then they will free() it.
-
-`strbuf_addch`::
-
- Add a single character to the buffer.
-
-`strbuf_addchars`::
-
- Add a character the specified number of times to the buffer.
-
-`strbuf_insert`::
-
- Insert data to the given position of the buffer. The remaining contents
- will be shifted, not overwritten.
-
-`strbuf_remove`::
-
- Remove given amount of data from a given position of the buffer.
-
-`strbuf_splice`::
-
- Remove the bytes between `pos..pos+len` and replace it with the given
- data.
-
-`strbuf_add_commented_lines`::
-
- Add a NUL-terminated string to the buffer. Each line will be prepended
- by a comment character and a blank.
-
-`strbuf_add`::
-
- Add data of given length to the buffer.
-
-`strbuf_addstr`::
-
-Add a NUL-terminated string to the buffer.
-+
-NOTE: This function will *always* be implemented as an inline or a macro
-that expands to:
-+
-----
-strbuf_add(..., s, strlen(s));
-----
-+
-Meaning that this is efficient to write things like:
-+
-----
-strbuf_addstr(sb, "immediate string");
-----
-
-`strbuf_addbuf`::
-
- Copy the contents of another buffer at the end of the current one.
-
-`strbuf_adddup`::
-
- Copy part of the buffer from a given position till a given length to the
- end of the buffer.
-
-`strbuf_expand`::
-
- This function can be used to expand a format string containing
- placeholders. To that end, it parses the string and calls the specified
- function for every percent sign found.
-+
-The callback function is given a pointer to the character after the `%`
-and a pointer to the struct strbuf. It is expected to add the expanded
-version of the placeholder to the strbuf, e.g. to add a newline
-character if the letter `n` appears after a `%`. The function returns
-the length of the placeholder recognized and `strbuf_expand()` skips
-over it.
-+
-The format `%%` is automatically expanded to a single `%` as a quoting
-mechanism; callers do not need to handle the `%` placeholder themselves,
-and the callback function will not be invoked for this placeholder.
-+
-All other characters (non-percent and not skipped ones) are copied
-verbatim to the strbuf. If the callback returned zero, meaning that the
-placeholder is unknown, then the percent sign is copied, too.
-+
-In order to facilitate caching and to make it possible to give
-parameters to the callback, `strbuf_expand()` passes a context pointer,
-which can be used by the programmer of the callback as she sees fit.
-
-`strbuf_expand_dict_cb`::
-
- Used as callback for `strbuf_expand()`, expects an array of
- struct strbuf_expand_dict_entry as context, i.e. pairs of
- placeholder and replacement string. The array needs to be
- terminated by an entry with placeholder set to NULL.
-
-`strbuf_addbuf_percentquote`::
-
- Append the contents of one strbuf to another, quoting any
- percent signs ("%") into double-percents ("%%") in the
- destination. This is useful for literal data to be fed to either
- strbuf_expand or to the *printf family of functions.
-
-`strbuf_humanise_bytes`::
-
- Append the given byte size as a human-readable string (i.e. 12.23 KiB,
- 3.50 MiB).
-
-`strbuf_addf`::
-
- Add a formatted string to the buffer.
-
-`strbuf_commented_addf`::
-
- Add a formatted string prepended by a comment character and a
- blank to the buffer.
-
-`strbuf_fread`::
-
- Read a given size of data from a FILE* pointer to the buffer.
-+
-NOTE: The buffer is rewound if the read fails. If -1 is returned,
-`errno` must be consulted, like you would do for `read(3)`.
-`strbuf_read()`, `strbuf_read_file()` and `strbuf_getline()` has the
-same behaviour as well.
-
-`strbuf_read`::
-
- Read the contents of a given file descriptor. The third argument can be
- used to give a hint about the file size, to avoid reallocs.
-
-`strbuf_read_file`::
-
- Read the contents of a file, specified by its path. The third argument
- can be used to give a hint about the file size, to avoid reallocs.
-
-`strbuf_readlink`::
-
- Read the target of a symbolic link, specified by its path. The third
- argument can be used to give a hint about the size, to avoid reallocs.
-
-`strbuf_getline`::
-
- Read a line from a FILE *, overwriting the existing contents
- of the strbuf. The second argument specifies the line
- terminator character, typically `'\n'`.
- Reading stops after the terminator or at EOF. The terminator
- is removed from the buffer before returning. Returns 0 unless
- there was nothing left before EOF, in which case it returns `EOF`.
-
-`strbuf_getwholeline`::
-
- Like `strbuf_getline`, but keeps the trailing terminator (if
- any) in the buffer.
-
-`strbuf_getwholeline_fd`::
-
- Like `strbuf_getwholeline`, but operates on a file descriptor.
- It reads one character at a time, so it is very slow. Do not
- use it unless you need the correct position in the file
- descriptor.
-
-`strbuf_getcwd`::
-
- Set the buffer to the path of the current working directory.
-
-`strbuf_add_absolute_path`
-
- Add a path to a buffer, converting a relative path to an
- absolute one in the process. Symbolic links are not
- resolved.
-
-`stripspace`::
-
- Strip whitespace from a buffer. The second parameter controls if
- comments are considered contents to be removed or not.
-
-`strbuf_split_buf`::
-`strbuf_split_str`::
-`strbuf_split_max`::
-`strbuf_split`::
-
- Split a string or strbuf into a list of strbufs at a specified
- terminator character. The returned substrings include the
- terminator characters. Some of these functions take a `max`
- parameter, which, if positive, limits the output to that
- number of substrings.
-
-`strbuf_list_free`::
-
- Free a list of strbufs (for example, the return values of the
- `strbuf_split()` functions).
-
-`launch_editor`::
-
- Launch the user preferred editor to edit a file and fill the buffer
- with the file's contents upon the user completing their editing. The
- third argument can be used to set the environment which the editor is
- run in. If the buffer is NULL the editor is launched as usual but the
- file's contents are not read into the buffer upon completion.

+submodule config cache API
+==========================
+
+The submodule config cache API allows to read submodule
+configurations/information from specified revisions. Internally
+information is lazily read into a cache that is used to avoid
+unnecessary parsing of the same .gitmodule files. Lookups can be done by
+submodule path or name.
+
+Usage
+-----
+
+To initialize the cache with configurations from the worktree the caller
+typically first calls `gitmodules_config()` to read values from the
+worktree .gitmodules and then to overlay the local git config values
+`parse_submodule_config_option()` from the config parsing
+infrastructure.
+
+The caller can look up information about submodules by using the
+`submodule_from_path()` or `submodule_from_name()` functions. They return
+a `struct submodule` which contains the values. The API automatically
+initializes and allocates the needed infrastructure on-demand. If the
+caller does only want to lookup values from revisions the initialization
+can be skipped.
+
+If the internal cache might grow too big or when the caller is done with
+the API, all internally cached values can be freed with submodule_free().
+
+Data Structures
+---------------
+
+`struct submodule`::
+
+ This structure is used to return the information about one
+ submodule for a certain revision. It is returned by the lookup
+ functions.
+
+Functions
+---------
+
+`void submodule_free()`::
+
+ Use these to free the internally cached values.
+
+`int parse_submodule_config_option(const char *var, const char *value)`::
+
+ Can be passed to the config parsing infrastructure to parse
+ local (worktree) submodule configurations.
+
+`const struct submodule *submodule_from_path(const unsigned char *commit_sha1, const char *path)`::
+
+ Lookup values for one submodule by its commit_sha1 and path.
+
+`const struct submodule *submodule_from_name(const unsigned char *commit_sha1, const char *name)`::
+
+ The same as above but lookup by name.
+
+If given the null_sha1 as commit_sha1 the local configuration of a
+submodule will be returned (e.g. consolidated values from local git
+configuration and the .gitmodules file in the worktree).
+
+For an example usage see test-submodule-config.c.
