GIT v1.6.1.1 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.6.1
* "git add frotz/nitfol" when "frotz" is a submodule should have errored
out, but it didn't.
* "git apply" took file modes from the patch text and updated the mode
bits of the target tree even when the patch was not about mode changes.
* "git bisect view" on Cygwin did not launch gitk
* "git checkout $tree" did not trigger an error.
* "git commit" tried to remove COMMIT_EDITMSG from the work tree by mistake.
* "git describe --all" complained when a commit is described with a tag,
which was nonsense.
* "git diff --no-index --" did not trigger no-index (aka "use git-diff as
a replacement of diff on untracked files") behaviour.
* "git format-patch -1 HEAD" on a root commit failed to produce patch
* "git fsck branch" did not work as advertised; instead it behaved the same
way as "git fsck".
* "git log --pretty=format:%s" did not handle a multi-line subject the
same way as built-in log listers (i.e. shortlog, --pretty=oneline, etc.)
* "git daemon", and "git merge-file" are more careful when freopen fails
and barf, instead of going on and writing to unopened filehandle.
* "git http-push" did not like some RFC 4918 compliant DAV server
* "git merge -s recursive" mistakenly overwritten an untracked file in the
work tree upon delete/modify conflict.
* "git merge -s recursive" didn't leave the index unmerged for entries with
rename/delete conflictd.
* "git merge -s recursive" clobbered untracked files in the work tree.
* "git mv -k" with more than one errorneous paths misbehaved.
* "git read-tree -m -u" hence branch switching incorrectly lost a
subdirectory in rare cases.
* "git rebase -i" issued an unnecessary error message upon a user error of
marking the first commit to be "squash"ed.
* "git shortlog" did not format a commit message with multi-line
subject correctly.
Many documentation updates.
