GIT v1.6.4.2 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.6.4.1
* --date=relative output between 1 and 5 years ago rounded the number of
years when saying X years Y months ago, instead of rounding it down.
* "git add -p" did not handle changes in executable bits correctly
(a regression around 1.6.3).
* "git apply" did not honor GNU diff's convention to mark the creation/deletion
event with UNIX epoch timestamp on missing side.
* "git checkout" incorrectly removed files in a directory pointed by a
symbolic link during a branch switch that replaces a directory with
a symbolic link.
* "git clean -d -f" happily descended into a subdirectory that is managed by a
separate git repository. It now requires two -f options for safety.
* "git fetch/push" over http transports had two rather grave bugs.
* "git format-patch --cover-letter" did not prepare the cover letter file
for use with non-ASCII strings when there are the series contributors with
non-ASCII names.
* "git pull origin branch" and "git fetch origin && git merge origin/branch"
left different merge messages in the resulting commit.
Other minor documentation updates are included.
