+Git Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.8.1.2
+ * The attribute mechanism didn't allow limiting attributes to be
+ applied to only a single directory itself with "path/" like the
+ exclude mechanism does. The fix for this in had
+ performance degradations.
+ * Command line completion code was inadvertently made incompatible with
+ older versions of bash by using a newer array notation.
+ * Scripts to test bash completion was inherently flaky as it was
+ affected by whatever random things the user may have on $PATH.
+ * A fix was added to the build procedure to work around buggy
+ versions of ccache broke the auto-generation of dependencies, which
+ unfortunately is still relevant because some people use ancient
+ distros.
+ * We used to stuff "user@" and then append what we read from
+ /etc/mailname to come up with a default e-mail ident, but a bug
+ lost the "user@" part.
+ * "git am" did not parse datestamp correctly from Hg generated patch,
+ when it is run in a locale outside C (or en).
+ * Attempt to "branch --edit-description" an existing branch, while
+ being on a detached HEAD, errored out.
+ * "git cherry-pick" did not replay a root commit to an unborn branch.
+ * We forgot to close the file descriptor reading from "gpg" output,
+ killing "git log --show-signature" on a long history.
+ * "git rebase --preserve-merges" lost empty merges in recent versions
+ of Git.
+ * Rebasing the history of superproject with change in the submodule
+ has been broken since v1.7.12.
+ * A failure to push due to non-ff while on an unborn branch
+ dereferenced a NULL pointer when showing an error message.
+Also contains various documentation fixes.
