Git v1.7.11.4 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.7.11.3
* "$GIT_DIR/COMMIT_EDITMSG" file that is used to hold the commit log
message user edits was not documented.
* The advise() function did not use varargs correctly to format
its message.
* When "git am" failed, old timers knew to check .git/rebase-apply/patch
to see what went wrong, but we never told the users about it.
* "git commit-tree" learned a more natural "-p <parent> <tree>" order
of arguments long time ago, but recently forgot it by mistake.
* "git diff --no-ext-diff" did not output anything for a typechange
filepair when GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF is in effect.
* In 1.7.9 era, we taught "git rebase" about the raw timestamp format
but we did not teach the same trick to "filter-branch", which rolled
a similar logic on its own.
* When "git submodule add" clones a submodule repository, it can get
confused where to store the resulting submodule repository in the
superproject's .git/ directory when there is a symbolic link in the
path to the current directory.
Also contains minor typofixes and documentation updates.
