+Git v1.7.3 Release Notes (draft)
+Updates since v1.7.2
+ * git-gui got various updates and a new maintainer, Pat Thoyts.
+ * Gitweb allows its configuration to change per each request; it used to
+ read the configuration once upon startup.
+ * When git finds a corrupt object, it now reports the file that contains
+ it.
+ * "git checkout -B <it>" is a shorter way to say "git branch -f <it>"
+ followed by "git checkout <it>".
+ * When "git checkout" or "git merge" refuse to proceed in order to
+ protect local modification to your working tree, they used to stop
+ after showing just one path that might be lost. They now show all,
+ in a format that is easier to read.
+ * "git clean" learned "-e" ("--exclude") option.
+ * Hunk headers produced for C# files by "git diff" and friends show more
+ relevant context than before.
+ * diff.ignoresubmodules configuration variable can be used to squelch the
+ differences in submodules reported when running commands (e.g. "diff",
+ "status", etc.) at the superproject level.
+ * http.useragent configuration can be used to lie who you are to your
+ restrictive firewall.
+ * "git rebase --strategy <s>" learned "-X" option to pass extra options
+ that are understood by the chosen merge strategy.
+ * "git rebase -i" learned "exec" that you can insert into the insn sheet
+ to run a command between its steps.
+ * "git rebase" between branches that have many binary changes that do
+ not conflict should be faster.
+ * "git rebase -i" peeks into rebase.autosquash configuration and acts as
+ if you gave --autosquash from the command line.
+Also contains various documentation updates.
+Fixes since v1.7.2
+All of the fixes in v1.7.2.X maintenance series are included in this
+release, unless otherwise noted.
+ * "git merge -s recursive" (which is the default) did not handle cases
+ where a directory becomes a file (or vice versa) very well.
+ * "git fetch" and friends were accidentally broken for url with "+" in
+ its path, e.g. "git://".
+exec >/var/tmp/1
+echo O=$(git describe master)
+git shortlog --no-merges $O..master ^maint
+exit 0
