+Git v1.7.5 Release Notes (draft)
+========================
+
+Updates since v1.7.4
+--------------------
+
+ * Various MinGW portability fixes.
+
+ * Various git-p4 enhancements (in contrib).
+
+ * Various vcs-svn enhancements.
+
+ * Update to more modern HP-UX port.
+
+ * "git apply -v" reports offset lines when the patch does not apply at
+ the exact location recorded in the diff output.
+
+ * "git branch --track" (and "git checkout --track --branch") used to
+ allow setting up a random non-branch that does not make sense to follow
+ as the "upstream". The command correctly diagnoses it as an error.
+
+ * "git config" used to be also known as "git repo-config", but the old
+ name is now officially deprecated.
+
+ * "git checkout --detach <commit>" is a more user friendly synonym for
+ "git checkout <commit>^0".
+
+ * "git checkout" performed on detached HEAD gives a warning and
+ advice when the commit being left behind will become unreachable from
+ any branch or tag.
+
+ * "git cherry-pick" and "git revert" can be told to use a custom merge
+ strategy, similar to "git rebase".
+
+ * "git cherry-pick" remembers which commit failed to apply when it is
+ stopped by conflicts, making it unnecessary to use "commit -c $commit"
+ to conclude it.
+
+ * "git cvsimport" bails out immediately when the cvs server cannot be
+ reached, without spewing unnecessary error messages that complain about
+ the server response it never got.
+
+ * "git grep --no-index" did not honor pathspecs correctly, returning
+ paths outside the specified area.
+
+ * "git log" type commands now understand globbing pathspecs. You
+ can say "git log -- '*.txt'" for example.
+
+ * "git rev-list --objects $revs -- $pathspec" now limits the objects listed
+ in its output properly with the pathspec, in preparation for narrow
+ clones.
+
+ * "git push" with no parameters gives better advice messages when
+ "tracking" is used as the push.default semantics or there is no remote
+ configured yet.
+
+ * "git rerere" learned a new subcommand "remaining" that is similar to
+ "status" and lists the paths that had conflicts which are known to
+ rerere, but excludes the paths that have already been marked as
+ resolved in the index from its output. "git mergetool" has been
+ updated to use this facility.
+
+ * A possible value to the "push.default" configuration variable,
+ 'tracking', gained a synonym that more naturally describes what it
+ does, 'upstream'.
+
+Also contains various documentation updates.
+
+
+Fixes since v1.7.4
+------------------
+
+All of the fixes in the v1.7.4.X maintenance series are included in this
+release, unless otherwise noted.
+
+ * We used to keep one file descriptor open for each and every packfile
+ that we have a mmap window on it (read: "in use"), even when for very
+ tiny packfiles. We now close the file descriptor early when the entire
+ packfile fits inside one mmap window.
+
+ * "git apply" used to confuse lines updated by previous hunks as lines
+ that existed before when applying a hunk, contributing misapplication
+ of patches with offsets.
+
+ * "git checkout $other_branch" silently removed untracked symbolic links
+ in the working tree that are in the way in order to check out paths
+ under it from the named branch (js/checkout-untracked-symlink).
+
+ * "git submodule update" used to honor the --merge/--rebase option (or
+ corresponding configuration variables) even for a newly cloned
+ subproject, which made no sense (so/submodule-no-update-first-time).
+

-Detached HEAD
+DETACHED HEAD
-------------
+HEAD normally refers to a named branch (e.g. 'master'). Meanwhile, each
+branch refers to a specific commit. Let's look at a repo with three
+commits, one of them tagged, and with branch 'master' checked out:
+
+------------
+ HEAD (refers to branch 'master')
+ |
+ v
+a---b---c branch 'master' (refers to commit 'c')
+ ^
+ |
+ tag 'v2.0' (refers to commit 'b')
+------------
-It is sometimes useful to be able to 'checkout' a commit that is
-not at the tip of one of your branches. The most obvious
-example is to check out the commit at a tagged official release
-point, like this:
+When a commit is created in this state, the branch is updated to refer to
+the new commit. Specifically, 'git commit' creates a new commit 'd', whose
+parent is commit 'c', and then updates branch 'master' to refer to new
+commit 'd'. HEAD still refers to branch 'master' and so indirectly now refers
+to commit 'd':
------------
-$ git checkout v2.6.18
+$ edit; git add; git commit
+
+ HEAD (refers to branch 'master')
+ |
+ v
+a---b---c---d branch 'master' (refers to commit 'd')
+ ^
+ |
+ tag 'v2.0' (refers to commit 'b')
------------
-Earlier versions of git did not allow this and asked you to
-create a temporary branch using the `-b` option, but starting from
-version 1.5.0, the above command 'detaches' your HEAD from the
-current branch and directly points at the commit named by the tag
-(`v2.6.18` in the example above).
+It is sometimes useful to be able to checkout a commit that is not at
+the tip of any named branch, or even to create a new commit that is not
+referenced by a named branch. Let's look at what happens when we
+checkout commit 'b' (here we show two ways this may be done):
-You can use all git commands while in this state. You can use
-`git reset --hard $othercommit` to further move around, for
-example. You can make changes and create a new commit on top of
-a detached HEAD. You can even create a merge by using `git
-merge $othercommit`.
+------------
+$ git checkout v2.0 # or
+$ git checkout master^^
+
+ HEAD (refers to commit 'b')
+ |
+ v
+a---b---c---d branch 'master' (refers to commit 'd')
+ ^
+ |
+ tag 'v2.0' (refers to commit 'b')
+------------
-The state you are in while your HEAD is detached is not recorded
-by any branch (which is natural --- you are not on any branch).
-What this means is that you can discard your temporary commits
-and merges by switching back to an existing branch (e.g. `git
-checkout master`), and a later `git prune` or `git gc` would
-garbage-collect them. If you did this by mistake, you can ask
-the reflog for HEAD where you were, e.g.
+Notice that regardless of which checkout command we use, HEAD now refers
+directly to commit 'b'. This is known as being in detached HEAD state.
+It means simply that HEAD refers to a specific commit, as opposed to
+referring to a named branch. Let's see what happens when we create a commit:
------------
-$ git log -g -2 HEAD
+$ edit; git add; git commit
+
+ HEAD (refers to commit 'e')
+ |
+ v
+ e
+ /
+a---b---c---d branch 'master' (refers to commit 'd')
+ ^
+ |
+ tag 'v2.0' (refers to commit 'b')
+------------
+
+There is now a new commit 'e', but it is referenced only by HEAD. We can
+of course add yet another commit in this state:
+
+------------
+$ edit; git add; git commit
+
+ HEAD (refers to commit 'f')
+ |
+ v
+ e---f
+ /
+a---b---c---d branch 'master' (refers to commit 'd')
+ ^
+ |
+ tag 'v2.0' (refers to commit 'b')
+------------
+
+In fact, we can perform all the normal git operations. But, let's look
+at what happens when we then checkout master:
+
+------------
+$ git checkout master
+
+ HEAD (refers to branch 'master')
+ e---f |
+ / v
+a---b---c---d branch 'master' (refers to commit 'd')
+ ^
+ |
+ tag 'v2.0' (refers to commit 'b')
------------
+It is important to realize that at this point nothing refers to commit
+'f'. Eventually commit 'f' (and by extension commit 'e') will be deleted
+by the routine git garbage collection process, unless we create a reference
+before that happens. If we have not yet moved away from commit 'f',
+any of these will create a reference to it:
+
+------------
+$ git checkout -b foo <1>
+$ git branch foo <2>
+$ git tag foo <3>
+------------
+
+<1> creates a new branch 'foo', which refers to commit 'f', and then
+updates HEAD to refer to branch 'foo'. In other words, we'll no longer
+be in detached HEAD state after this command.
+
+<2> similarly creates a new branch 'foo', which refers to commit 'f',
+but leaves HEAD detached.
+
+<3> creates a new tag 'foo', which refers to commit 'f',
+leaving HEAD detached.
+
+If we have moved away from commit 'f', then we must first recover its object
+name (typically by using git reflog), and then we can create a reference to
+it. For example, to see the last two commits to which HEAD referred, we
+can use either of these commands:
+
+------------
+$ git reflog -2 HEAD # or
+$ git log -g -2 HEAD
+------------

+Pathspecs are used on the command line of "git ls-files", "git

+limit the scope of operations to some subset of the tree or
+worktree. See the documentation of each command for whether
+paths are relative to the current directory or toplevel. The
+pathspec syntax is as follows:
+
+* any path matches itself
+* the pathspec up to the last slash represents a
+ directory prefix. The scope of that pathspec is
+ limited to that subtree.
+* the rest of the pathspec is a pattern for the remainder
+ of the pathname. Paths relative to the directory
+ prefix will be matched against that pattern using fnmatch(3);
+ in particular, '*' and '?' _can_ match directory separators.
++
+For example, Documentation/*.jpg will match all .jpg files
+in the Documentation subtree,
+including Documentation/chapter_1/figure_1.jpg.
