+Git v1.6.5.4 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.6.5.3
+ * "git help" (without argument) used to check if you are in a directory
+ under git control. There was no breakage in behaviour per-se, but this
+ was unnecessary.
+ * "git prune-packed" gave progress output even when its standard error is
+ not connected to a terminal; this caused cron jobs that run it to
+ produce crufts.
+ * "git pack-objects --all-progress" is an option to ask progress output
+ from write-object phase _if_ progress output were to be produced, and
+ shouldn't have forced the progress output.
+ * "git apply -p<n> --directory=<elsewhere>" did not work well for a
+ non-default value of n.
+ * "git merge foo HEAD" was misparsed as an old-style invocation of the
+ command and produced a confusing error message. As it does not specify
+ any other branch to merge, it shouldn't be mistaken as such. We will
+ remove the old style "git merge <message> HEAD <commit>..." syntax in
+ future versions, but not in this release,
+ * "git merge -m <message> <branch>..." added the standard merge message
+ on its own after user-supplied message, which should have overrided the
+ standard one.
+Other minor documentation updates are included.
