+Git v1.8.5.4 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.8.5.4
+ * "git fetch --depth=0" was a no-op, and was silently ignored.
+ Diagnose it as an error.
+ * Remote repository URL expressed in scp-style host:path notation are
+ parsed more carefully (e.g. "foo/bar:baz" is local, "[::1]:/~user" asks
+ to connect to user's home directory on host at address ::1.
+ * SSL-related options were not passed correctly to underlying socket
+ layer in "git send-email".
+ * "git commit -v" appends the patch to the log message before
+ editing, and then removes the patch when the editor returned
+ control. However, the patch was not stripped correctly when the
+ first modified path was a submodule.
+ * "git mv A B/", when B does not exist as a directory, should error
+ out, but it didn't.
+ * When we figure out how many file descriptors to allocate for
+ keeping packfiles open, a system with non-working getrlimit() could
+ cause us to die(), but because we make this call only to get a
+ rough estimate of how many is available and we do not even attempt
+ to use up all file descriptors available ourselves, it is nicer to
+ fall back to a reasonable low value rather than dying.
+ * "git log --decorate" did not handle a tag pointed by another tag
+ nicely.
+ * "git add -A" (no other arguments) in a totally empty working tree
+ used to emit an error.
+ * There is no reason to have a hardcoded upper limit of the number of
+ parents for an octopus merge, created via the graft mechanism, but
+ there was.
+ * The implementation of 'git stash $cmd "stash@{...}"' did not quote
+ the stash argument properly and left it split at IFS whitespace.
+ * The documentation to "git pull" hinted there is an "-m" option
+ because it incorrectly shared the documentation with "git merge".
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.
