Git Release Notes
Fixes since v1.7.12.2
* "git am" mishandled a patch attached as application/octet-stream
(e.g. not text/*); Content-Transfer-Encoding (e.g. base64) was not
honored correctly.
* It was unclear in the documentation for "git blame" that it is
unnecessary for users to use the "--follow" option.
* A repository created with "git clone --single" had its fetch
refspecs set up just like a clone without "--single", leading the
subsequent "git fetch" to slurp all the other branches, defeating
the whole point of specifying "only this branch".
* "git fetch" over http had an old workaround for an unlikely server
misconfiguration; it turns out that this hurts debuggability of the
configuration in general, and has been reverted.
* "git fetch" over http advertised that it supports "deflate", which
is much less common, and did not advertise the more common "gzip" on
its Accept-Encoding header.
* "git receive-pack" (the counterpart to "git push") did not give
progress output while processing objects it received to the puser
when run over the smart-http protocol.
* "git status" honored the ignore=dirty settings in .gitmodules but
"git commit" didn't.
Also contains a handful of documentation updates.
