Git v1.7.5.2 Release Notes
The release notes to forgot to mention:
* "git stash -p --no-keep-index" and "git stash --no-keep-index -p" now
mean the same thing.
* "git upload-pack" (hence "git push" over git native protocol) had a
subtle race condition that could lead to a deadlock.
Fixes since v1.7.5.1
* "git add -p" did not work correctly when a hunk is split and then
one of them was given to the editor.
* "git add -u" did not resolve a conflict where our history deleted and
their history modified the same file, and the working tree resolved to
keep a file.
* "git cvsimport" did not know that CVSNT stores its password file in a
location different from the traditional CVS.
* "git diff-files" did not show the mode information from the working
tree side of an unmerged path correctly.
* "git diff -M --cached" used to use unmerged path as a possible rename
source candidate, which made no sense.
* The option name parser in "git fast-import" used prefix matches for
some options where it shouldn't, and accepted non-existent options,
e.g. "--relative-marksmith" or "--forceps".
* "git format-patch" did not quote RFC822 special characters in the
email address (e.g From: Junio C. Hamano <>, not
From: "Junio C. Hamano" <>).
* "git format-patch" when run with "--quiet" option used to produce a
nonsense result that consists of alternating empty output.
* In "git merge", per-branch branch.<name>.mergeoptions configuration
variables did not override the fallback default merge.<option>
configuration variables such as merge.ff, merge.log, etc.
* "git merge-one-file" did not honor GIT_WORK_TREE settings when
handling a "both sides added, differently" conflict.
* "git mergetool" did not handle conflicted submoudules gracefully.
* "git-p4" (in contrib) used a wrong base image while merge a file that
was added on both branches differently.
* "git rebase -i -p" failed to preserve the history when there is a
redundant merge created with the --no-ff option.
And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
