Git v1.7.2.3 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.7.2.2
* When people try insane things such as delta-compressing 4GiB files, we
threw an assertion failure.
* "git archive" gave the full commit ID for "$Format:%h$".
* "git fetch --tags" did not fetch tags when remote.<nick>.tagopt was set
to --no-tags. The command line option now overrides the configuration
* "git for-each-ref --format='%(objectname:short)'" has been completely
broken for a long time.
* "git gc" incorrectly pruned a rerere record that was created long
time ago but still is actively and repeatedly used.
* "git log --follow -M -p" was seriously broken in 1.7.2, reporting
assertion failure.
* Running "git log" with an incorrect option started pager nevertheless,
forcing the user to dismiss it.
* "git rebase" did not work well when the user has diff.renames
configuration variable set.
* An earlier (and rather old) fix to "git rebase" against a rebased
upstream broke a more normal, non rebased upstream case rather badly,
attempting to re-apply patches that are already accepted upstream.
* "git submodule sync" forgot to update the superproject's config file
when submodule URL changed.
* "git pack-refs --all --prune" did not remove a directory that has
become empty.
