+Git v2.7.3 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.7.2
+ * Traditionally, the tests that try commands that work on the
+   contents in the working tree were named with "worktree" in their
+   filenames, but with the recent addition of "git worktree"
+   subcommand, whose tests are also named similarly, it has become
+   harder to tell them apart.  The traditional tests have been renamed
+   to use "work-tree" instead in an attempt to differentiate them.
+ * Many codepaths forget to check return value from git_config_set();
+   the function is made to die() to make sure we do not proceed when
+   setting a configuration variable failed.
+ * Handling of errors while writing into our internal asynchronous
+   process has been made more robust, which reduces flakiness in our
+   tests.
+ * "git show 'HEAD:Foo[BAR]Baz'" did not interpret the argument as a
+   rev, i.e. the object named by the the pathname with wildcard
+   characters in a tree object.
+ * "git rev-parse --git-common-dir" used in the worktree feature
+   misbehaved when run from a subdirectory.
+ * The "v(iew)" subcommand of the interactive "git am -i" command was
+   broken in 2.6.0 timeframe when the command was rewritten in C.
+ * "git merge-tree" used to mishandle "both sides added" conflict with
+   its own "create a fake ancestor file that has the common parts of
+   what both sides have added and do a 3-way merge" logic; this has
+   been updated to use the usual "3-way merge with an empty blob as
+   the fake common ancestor file" approach used in the rest of the
+   system.
+ * The memory ownership rule of fill_textconv() API, which was a bit
+   tricky, has been documented a bit better.
+ * The documentation did not clearly state that the 'simple' mode is
+   now the default for "git push" when push.default configuration is
+   not set.
+ * Recent versions of GNU grep are pickier when their input contains
+   arbitrary binary data, which some of our tests uses.  Rewrite the
+   tests to sidestep the problem.
+ * A helper function "git submodule" uses since v2.7.0 to list the
+   modules that match the pathspec argument given to its subcommands
+   (e.g. "submodule add <repo> <path>") has been fixed.
+ * "git config section.var value" to set a value in per-repository
+   configuration file failed when it was run outside any repository,
+   but didn't say the reason correctly.
+ * The code to read the pack data using the offsets stored in the pack
+   idx file has been made more carefully check the validity of the
+   data in the idx.
+Also includes documentation and test updates.
