Git v2.15.2 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.15.1
* Recent update to the refs infrastructure implementation started
rewriting packed-refs file more often than before; this has been
optimized again for most trivial cases.
* The SubmittingPatches document has been converted to produce an
HTML version via AsciiDoc/Asciidoctor.
* Contrary to the documentation, "git pull -4/-6 other-args" did not
ask the underlying "git fetch" to go over IPv4/IPv6, which has been
* When "git rebase" prepared an mailbox of changes and fed it to "git
am" to replay them, it was confused when a stray "From " happened
to be in the log message of one of the replayed changes. This has
been corrected.
* Command line completion (in contrib/) has been taught about the
"--copy" option of "git branch".
* "git apply --inaccurate-eof" when used with "--ignore-space-change"
triggered an internal sanity check, which has been fixed.
* The sequencer machinery (used by "git cherry-pick A..B", and "git
rebase -i", among other things) would have lost a commit if stopped
due to an unlockable index file, which has been fixed.
* The three-way merge performed by "git cherry-pick" was confused
when a new submodule was added in the meantime, which has been
fixed (or "papered over").
* "git notes" sent its error message to its standard output stream,
which was corrected.
* A few scripts (both in production and tests) incorrectly redirected
their error output. These have been corrected.
* Clarify and enhance documentation for "merge-base --fork-point", as
it was clear what it computed but not why/what for.
* This release also contains the fixes made in the v2.13.7 version of
Git. See its release notes for details.
Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
