Git v2.6.5 Release Notes
========================
 
Fixes since v2.6.4
------------------
 
 * Because "test_when_finished" in our test framework queues the
   clean-up tasks to be done in a shell variable, it should not be
   used inside a subshell.  Add a mechanism to allow 'bash' to catch
   such uses, and fix the ones that were found.
 
 * Update "git subtree" (in contrib/) so that it can take whitespaces
   in the pathnames, not only in the in-tree pathname but the name of
   the directory that the repository is in.
 
 * Cosmetic improvement to lock-file error messages.
 
 * mark_tree_uninteresting() has code to handle the case where it gets
   passed a NULL pointer in its 'tree' parameter, but the function had
   'object = &tree->object' assignment before checking if tree is
   NULL.  This gives a compiler an excuse to declare that tree will
   never be NULL and apply a wrong optimization.  Avoid it.
 
Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
clean-ups.
