Git Release Notes
Fixes since v1.7.12.1
* When "git am" is fed an input that has multiple "Content-type: ..."
header, it did not grok charset= attribute correctly.
* Even during a conflicted merge, "git blame $path" always meant to
blame uncommitted changes to the "working tree" version; make it
more useful by showing cleanly merged parts as coming from the other
branch that is being merged.
* "git blame MAKEFILE" run in a history that has "Makefile" but not
"MAKEFILE" should say "No such file MAKEFILE in HEAD", but got
confused on a case insensitive filesystem and failed to do so.
* "git fetch --all", when passed "--no-tags", did not honor the
"--no-tags" option while fetching from individual remotes (the same
issue existed with "--tags", but combination "--all --tags" makes
much less sense than "--all --no-tags").
* "git log/diff/format-patch --stat" showed the "N line(s) added"
comment in user's locale and caused careless submitters to send
patches with such a line in them to projects whose project language
is not their language, mildly irritating others. Localization to
the line has been disabled for now.
* "git log --all-match --grep=A --grep=B" ought to show commits that
mention both A and B, but when these three options are used with
--author or --committer, it showed commits that mention either A or
B (or both) instead.
* The subcommand to remove the definition of a remote in "git remote"
was named "rm" even though all other subcommands were spelled out.
Introduce "git remote remove" to remove confusion, and keep "rm" as
a backward compatible synonym.
Also contains a handful of documentation updates.
