Git v2.16.3 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.16.2
* "git status" after moving a path in the working tree (hence making
it appear "removed") and then adding with the -N option (hence
making that appear "added") detected it as a rename, but did not
report the old and new pathnames correctly.
* "git commit --fixup" did not allow "-m<message>" option to be used
at the same time; allow it to annotate resulting commit with more
* When resetting the working tree files recursively, the working tree
of submodules are now also reset to match.
* Fix for a commented-out code to adjust it to a rather old API change
around object ID.
* When there are too many changed paths, "git diff" showed a warning
message but in the middle of a line.
* The http tracing code, often used to debug connection issues,
learned to redact potentially sensitive information from its output
so that it can be more safely shareable.
* Crash fix for a corner case where an error codepath tried to unlock
what it did not acquire lock on.
* The split-index mode had a few corner case bugs fixed.
* Assorted fixes to "git daemon".
* Completion of "git merge -s<strategy>" (in contrib/) did not work
well in non-C locale.
* Workaround for segfault with more recent versions of SVN.
* Recently introduced leaks in fsck have been plugged.
* Travis CI integration now builds the executable in 'script' phase
to follow the established practice, rather than during
'before_script' phase. This allows the CI categorize the failures
better ('failed' is project's fault, 'errored' is build
Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
