+Git v1.7.5.2 Release Notes
+The release notes to forgot to mention:
+ * "git stash -p --no-keep-index" and "git stash --no-keep-index -p" now
+ mean the same thing.
+ * "git upload-pack" (hence "git push" over git native protocol) had a
+ subtle race condition that could lead to a deadlock.
+Fixes since v1.7.5.1
+ * "git add -p" did not work correctly when a hunk is split and then
+ one of them was given to the editor.
+ * "git add -u" did not resolve a conflict where our history deleted and
+ their history modified the same file, and the working tree resolved to
+ keep a file.
+ * "git cvsimport" did not know that CVSNT stores its password file in a
+ location different from the traditional CVS.
+ * "git diff-files" did not show the mode information from the working
+ tree side of an unmerged path correctly.
+ * "git diff -M --cached" used to use unmerged path as a possible rename
+ source candidate, which made no sense.
+ * The option name parser in "git fast-import" used prefix matches for
+ some options where it shouldn't, and accepted non-existent options,
+ e.g. "--relative-marksmith" or "--forceps".
+ * "git format-patch" did not quote RFC822 special characters in the
+ email address (e.g From: Junio C. Hamano <>, not
+ From: "Junio C. Hamano" <>).
+ * "git format-patch" when run with "--quiet" option used to produce a
+ nonsense result that consists of alternating empty output.
+ * In "git merge", per-branch branch.<name>.mergeoptions configuration
+ variables did not override the fallback default merge.<option>
+ configuration variables such as merge.ff, merge.log, etc.
+ * "git merge-one-file" did not honor GIT_WORK_TREE settings when
+ handling a "both sides added, differently" conflict.
+ * "git mergetool" did not handle conflicted submoudules gracefully.
+ * "git-p4" (in contrib) used a wrong base image while merge a file that
+ was added on both branches differently.
+ * "git rebase -i -p" failed to preserve the history when there is a
+ redundant merge created with the --no-ff option.
+And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
