+Git v2.9.3 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.9.2
+ * A helper function that takes the contents of a commit object and
+ finds its subject line did not ignore leading blank lines, as is
+ commonly done by other codepaths. Make it ignore leading blank
+ lines to match.
+ * Git does not know what the contents in the index should be for a
+ path added with "git add -N" yet, so "git grep --cached" should not
+ show hits (or show lack of hits, with -L) in such a path, but that
+ logic does not apply to "git grep", i.e. searching in the working
+ tree files. But we did so by mistake, which has been corrected.
+ * "git rebase -i --autostash" did not restore the auto-stashed change
+ when the operation was aborted.
+ * "git commit --amend --allow-empty-message -S" for a commit without
+ any message body could have misidentified where the header of the
+ commit object ends.
+ * More mark-up updates to typeset strings that are expected to
+ literally typed by the end user in fixed-width font.
+ * For a long time, we carried an in-code comment that said our
+ colored output would work only when we use fprintf/fputs on
+ Windows, which no longer is the case for the past few years.
+ * "gc.autoPackLimit" when set to 1 should not trigger a repacking
+ when there is only one pack, but the code counted poorly and did
+ so.
+ * One part of "git am" had an oddball helper function that called
+ stuff from outside "his" as opposed to calling what we have "ours",
+ which was not gender-neutral and also inconsistent with the rest of
+ the system where outside stuff is usuall called "theirs" in
+ contrast to "ours".
+ * The test framework learned a new helper test_match_signal to
+ check an exit code from getting killed by an expected signal.
+ * "git blame -M" missed a single line that was moved within the file.
+ * Fix recently introduced codepaths that are involved in parallel
+ submodule operations, which gave up on reading too early, and
+ could have wasted CPU while attempting to write under a corner
+ case condition.
+ * "git grep -i" has been taught to fold case in non-ascii locales
+ correctly.
+ * A test that unconditionally used "mktemp" learned that the command
+ is not necessarily available everywhere.
+Also contains minor documentation updates and code clean-ups.
