Git v1.6.5.4 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.6.5.3
* "git help" (without argument) used to check if you are in a directory
under git control. There was no breakage in behaviour per-se, but this
was unnecessary.
* "git prune-packed" gave progress output even when its standard error is
not connected to a terminal; this caused cron jobs that run it to
produce crufts.
* "git pack-objects --all-progress" is an option to ask progress output
from write-object phase _if_ progress output were to be produced, and
shouldn't have forced the progress output.
* "git apply -p<n> --directory=<elsewhere>" did not work well for a
non-default value of n.
* "git merge foo HEAD" was misparsed as an old-style invocation of the
command and produced a confusing error message. As it does not specify
any other branch to merge, it shouldn't be mistaken as such. We will
remove the old style "git merge <message> HEAD <commit>..." syntax in
future versions, but not in this release,
* "git merge -m <message> <branch>..." added the standard merge message
on its own after user-supplied message, which should have overridden the
standard one.
Other minor documentation updates are included.
