+ * "git commit" did not honor GIT_REFLOG_ACTION environment variable, resulting

+
+ * "git clone/fetch/pull" issued an incorrect error message when a ref and
+ a symref that points to the ref were updated at the same time. This
+ obviously would update them to the same value, and should not result in
+ an error condition.

+ characters has become very slow in 1.7.0 by mistake.
+
+ * "git rev-parse --parseopt --stop-at-non-option" did not stop at non option
