+Git v2.4.7 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.4.6
+ * A minor regression to "git fsck" in v2.2 era was fixed; it
+   complained about a body-less tag object when it lacked a
+   separator empty line after its header to separate it with a
+   non-existent body.
+ * We used to ask libCURL to use the most secure authentication method
+   available when talking to an HTTP proxy only when we were told to
+   talk to one via configuration variables.  We now ask libCURL to
+   always use the most secure authentication method, because the user
+   can tell libCURL to use an HTTP proxy via an environment variable
+   without using configuration variables.
+ * When you say "!<ENTER>" while running say "git log", you'd confuse
+   yourself in the resulting shell, that may look as if you took
+   control back to the original shell you spawned "git log" from but
+   that isn't what is happening.  To that new shell, we leaked
+   GIT_PAGER_IN_USE environment variable that was meant as a local
+   communication between the original "Git" and subprocesses that was
+   spawned by it after we launched the pager, which caused many
+   "interesting" things to happen, e.g. "git diff | cat" still paints
+   its output in color by default.
+   Stop leaking that environment variable to the pager's half of the
+   fork; we only need it on "Git" side when we spawn the pager.
+ * Avoid possible ssize_t to int truncation.
+ * "git config" failed to update the configuration file when the
+   underlying filesystem is incapable of renaming a file that is still
+   open.
+ * A minor bugfix when pack bitmap is used with "rev-list --count".
+ * An ancient test framework enhancement to allow color was not
+   entirely correct; this makes it work even when tput needs to read
+   from the ~/.terminfo under the user's real HOME directory.
+ * Fix a small bug in our use of umask() return value.
+ * "git rebase" did not exit with failure when format-patch it invoked
+   failed for whatever reason.
+ * Disable "have we lost a race with competing repack?" check while
+   receiving a huge object transfer that runs index-pack.
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
