GIT v1.6.2.2 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.6.2.1
* A longstanding confusing description of what --pickaxe option of
git-diff does has been clarified in the documentation.
* "git-blame -S" did not quite work near the commits that were given
on the command line correctly.
* "git diff --pickaxe-regexp" did not count overlapping matches
* "git diff" did not feed files in work-tree representation to external
diff and textconv.
* "git-fetch" in a repository that was not cloned from anywhere said
it cannot find 'origin', which was hard to understand for new people.
* "git-format-patch --numbered-files --stdout" did not have to die of
incompatible options; it now simply ignores --numbered-files as no files
are produced anyway.
* "git-ls-files --deleted" did not work well with GIT_DIR&GIT_WORK_TREE.
* "git-read-tree A B C..." without -m option has been broken for a long
* git-send-email ignored --in-reply-to when --no-thread was given.
* 'git-submodule add' did not tolerate extra slashes and ./ in the path it
accepted from the command line; it now is more lenient.
* git-svn misbehaved when the project contained a path that began with
two dashes.
* import-zips script (in contrib) did not compute the common directory
prefix correctly.
* miscompilation of negated enum constants by old gcc (2.9) affected the
codepaths to spawn subprocesses.
Many small documentation updates are included as well.
