Git v2.6.5 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.6.4
* Because "test_when_finished" in our test framework queues the
clean-up tasks to be done in a shell variable, it should not be
used inside a subshell. Add a mechanism to allow 'bash' to catch
such uses, and fix the ones that were found.
* Update "git subtree" (in contrib/) so that it can take whitespaces
in the pathnames, not only in the in-tree pathname but the name of
the directory that the repository is in.
* Cosmetic improvement to lock-file error messages.
* mark_tree_uninteresting() has code to handle the case where it gets
passed a NULL pointer in its 'tree' parameter, but the function had
'object = &tree->object' assignment before checking if tree is
NULL. This gives a compiler an excuse to declare that tree will
never be NULL and apply a wrong optimization. Avoid it.
* The helper used to iterate over loose object directories to prune
stale objects did not closedir() immediately when it is done with a
directory--a callback such as the one used for "git prune" may want
to do rmdir(), but it would fail on open directory on platforms
such as WinXP.
* "git p4" used to import Perforce CLs that touch only paths outside
the client spec as empty commits. It has been corrected to ignore
them instead, with a new configuration git-p4.keepEmptyCommits as a
backward compatibility knob.
* The exit code of git-fsck did not reflect some types of errors
found in packed objects, which has been corrected.
Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
