+ * "git checkout topic", when there is not yet a local "topic" branch
+ but there is a unique remote-tracking branch for a remote "topic"
+ branch, pretended as if "git checkout -t -b topic remote/$r/topic"
+ (for that unique remote $r) was run. This hack however was not
+ implemented for "git checkout topic --".

+ * One long-standing flaw in the pack transfer protocol used by "git
+ clone" was that there was no way to tell the other end which branch
+ "HEAD" points at, and the receiving end needed to guess. A new
+ capability has been defined in the pack protocol to convey this
+ information so that cloning from a repository with more than one
+ branches pointing at the same commit where the HEAD is at now
+ reliably sets the initial branch in the resulting repository.

+ * We did not handle cases where http transport gets redirected during
+ the authorization request (e.g. from http:// to https://).

* Bash prompting code to deal with an SVN remote as an upstream
were coded in a way not supported by older Bash versions (3.x).
