GIT v1.6.4.3 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.6.4.2
* "git clone" from an empty repository gave unnecessary error message,
even though it did everything else correctly.
* "git cvsserver" invoked git commands via "git-foo" style, which has long
been deprecated.
* "git fetch" and "git clone" had an extra sanity check to verify the
presence of the corresponding *.pack file before downloading *.idx
file by issuing a HEAD request. Github server however sometimes
gave 500 (Internal server error) response to HEAD even if a GET
request for *.pack file to the same URL would have succeeded, and broke
clone over HTTP from some of their repositories. As a workaround, this
verification has been removed (as it is not absolutely necessary).
* "git grep" did not like relative pathname to refer outside the current
directory when run from a subdirectory.
* an error message from "git push" was formatted in a very ugly way.
* "git svn" did not quote the subversion user name correctly when
running its author-prog helper program.
Other minor documentation updates are included.
