GIT v1.5.6.4 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.5.6.3
* Various commands could overflow its internal buffer on a platform
with small PATH_MAX value in a repository that has contents with
long pathnames.
* There wasn't a way to make --pretty=format:%<> specifiers to honor
.mailmap name rewriting for authors and committers. Now you can with
%aN and %cN.
* Bash completion wasted too many cycles; this has been optimized to be
usable again.
* Bash completion lost ref part when completing something like "git show
* "git-cvsserver" did not clean up its temporary working area after annotate
* "git-daemon" called syslog() from its signal handler, which was a
* "git-fetch" into an empty repository used to remind that the fetch will
be huge by saying "no common commits", but this was an unnecessary
noise; it is already known by the user anyway.
* "git-mailinfo" (hence "git-am") did not correctly handle in-body [PATCH]
line to override the commit title taken from the mail Subject header.
* "git-rebase -i -p" lost parents that are not involved in the history
being rewritten.
Contains other various documentation fixes.
