Git Release Notes
Fixes since v1.8.1.2
* The attribute mechanism didn't allow limiting attributes to be
applied to only a single directory itself with "path/" like the
exclude mechanism does. The fix for this in had
performance degradations.
* Command line completion code was inadvertently made incompatible with
older versions of bash by using a newer array notation.
* We used to stuff "user@" and then append what we read from
/etc/mailname to come up with a default e-mail ident, but a bug
lost the "user@" part.
* "git am" did not parse datestamp correctly from Hg generated patch,
when it is run in a locale outside C (or en).
* Attempt to "branch --edit-description" an existing branch, while
being on a detached HEAD, errored out.
* "git rebase --preserve-merges" lost empty merges in recent versions
of Git.
Also contains various documentation fixes.
