+Git v2.6.2 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.6.1
+ * There were some classes of errors that "git fsck" diagnosed to its
+ standard error that did not cause it to exit with non-zero status.
+ * A test script for the HTTP service had a timing dependent bug,
+ which was fixed.
+ * Performance-measurement tests did not work without an installed Git.
+ * On a case insensitive filesystems, setting GIT_WORK_TREE variable
+ using a random cases that does not agree with what the filesystem
+ thinks confused Git that it wasn't inside the working tree.
+ * When "git am" was rewritten as a built-in, it stopped paying
+ attention to user.signingkey, which was fixed.
+ * After "git checkout --detach", "git status" reported a fairly
+ useless "HEAD detached at HEAD", instead of saying at which exact
+ commit.
+ * "git rebase -i" had a minor regression recently, which stopped
+ considering a line that begins with an indented '#' in its insn
+ sheet not a comment, which is now fixed.
+ * Description of the "log.follow" configuration variable in "git log"
+ documentation is now also copied to "git config" documentation.
+ * Allocation related functions and stdio are unsafe things to call
+ inside a signal handler, and indeed killing the pager can cause
+ glibc to deadlock waiting on allocation mutex as our signal handler
+ tries to free() some data structures in wait_for_pager(). Reduce
+ these unsafe calls.
+ * The way how --ref/--notes to specify the notes tree reference are
+ DWIMmed was not clearly documented.
+ * Customization to change the behaviour with "make -w" and "make -s"
+ in our Makefile was broken when they were used together.
+ * The Makefile always runs the library archiver with hardcoded "crs"
+ options, which was inconvenient for exotic platforms on which
+ people want to use programs with totally different set of command
+ line options.
+ * The ssh transport, just like any other transport over the network,
+ did not clear GIT_* environment variables, but it is possible to
+ use SendEnv and AcceptEnv to leak them to the remote invocation of
+ Git, which is not a good idea at all. Explicitly clear them just
+ like we do for the local transport.
+ * "git blame --first-parent v1.0..v2.0" was not rejected but did not
+ limit the blame to commits on the first parent chain.
+ * Very small number of options take a parameter that is optional
+ (which is not a great UI element as they can only appear at the end
+ of the command line). Add notice to documentation of each and
+ every one of them.
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
