GIT v1.5.5.1 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.5.5
* "git archive --prefix=$path/" mishandled gitattributes.
* "git fetch -v" that fetches into FETCH_HEAD did not report the summary
the same way as done for updating the tracking refs.
* "git svn" misbehaved when the configuration file customized the "git
log" output format using format.pretty.
* "git submodule status" leaked an unnecessary error message.
* "git log --date-order --topo-order" did not override the earlier
date-order with topo-order as expected.
* "git bisect good $this" did not check the validity of the revision
given properly.
* "url.<there>.insteadOf" did not work correctly.
* "git clean" ran inside subdirectory behaved as if the directory was
explicitly specified for removal by the end user from the top level.
* "git bisect" from a detached head leaked an unnecessary error message.
* "git bisect good $a $b" when $a is Ok but $b is bogus should have
atomically failed before marking $a as good.
* "git fmt-merge-msg" did not clean up leading empty lines from commit
log messages like "git log" family does.
* "git am" recorded a commit with empty Subject: line without
* when given a commit log message whose first paragraph consists of
multiple lines, "git rebase" squashed it into a single line.
* "git remote add $bogus_name $url" did not complain properly.
Also comes with various documentation updates.
