Git v2.3.3 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.3.2
* A corrupt input to "git diff -M" used cause us to segfault.
* The borrowed code in kwset API did not follow our usual convention
to use "unsigned char" to store values that range from 0-255.
* Description given by "grep -h" for its --exclude-standard option
was phrased poorly.
* Documentaton for "git remote add" mentioned "--tags" and
"--no-tags" and it was not clear that fetch from the remote in
the future will use the default behaviour when neither is given
to override it.
* "git diff --shortstat --dirstat=changes" showed a dirstat based on
lines that was never asked by the end user in addition to the
dirstat that the user asked for.
* The interaction between "git submodule update" and the
submodule.*.update configuration was not clearly documented.
* "git apply" was not very careful about reading from, removing,
updating and creating paths outside the working tree (under
--index/--cached) or the current directory (when used as a
replacement for GNU patch).
* "git daemon" looked up the hostname even when "%CH" and "%IP"
interpolations are not requested, which was unnecessary.
* The "interpolated-path" option of "git daemon" inserted any string
client declared on the "host=" capability request without checking.
Sanitize and limit %H and %CH to a saner and a valid DNS name.
Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.
