Git Release Notes
Fixes since v1.8.1.2
* The attribute mechanism didn't allow limiting attributes to be
applied to only a single directory itself with "path/" like the
exclude mechanism does. The fix for this in had
performance degradations.
* Command line completion code was inadvertently made incompatible with
older versions of bash by using a newer array notation.
* Scripts to test bash completion was inherently flaky as it was
affected by whatever random things the user may have on $PATH.
* A fix was added to the build procedure to work around buggy
versions of ccache broke the auto-generation of dependencies, which
unfortunately is still relevant because some people use ancient
* We used to stuff "user@" and then append what we read from
/etc/mailname to come up with a default e-mail ident, but a bug
lost the "user@" part.
* "git am" did not parse datestamp correctly from Hg generated patch,
when it is run in a locale outside C (or en).
* Attempt to "branch --edit-description" an existing branch, while
being on a detached HEAD, errored out.
* "git cherry-pick" did not replay a root commit to an unborn branch.
* We forgot to close the file descriptor reading from "gpg" output,
killing "git log --show-signature" on a long history.
* "git rebase --preserve-merges" lost empty merges in recent versions
of Git.
* Rebasing the history of superproject with change in the submodule
has been broken since v1.7.12.
* A failure to push due to non-ff while on an unborn branch
dereferenced a NULL pointer when showing an error message.
Also contains various documentation fixes.
