Git v2.3.5 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.3.4
* The prompt script (in contrib/) did not show the untracked sign
when working in a subdirectory without any untracked files.
* Even though "git grep --quiet" is run merely to ask for the exit
status, we spawned the pager regardless. Stop doing that.
* Recommend format-patch and send-email for those who want to submit
patches to this project.
* An failure early in the "git clone" that started creating the
working tree and repository could have resulted in some directories
and files left without getting cleaned up.
* "git fetch" that fetches a commit using the allow-tip-sha1-in-want
extension could have failed to fetch all the requested refs.
* The split-index mode introduced at v2.3.0-rc0~41 was broken in the
codepath to protect us against a broken reimplementation of Git
that writes an invalid index with duplicated index entries, etc.
* "git prune" used to largely ignore broken refs when deciding which
objects are still being used, which could spread an existing small
damage and make it a larger one.
* "git tag -h" used to show the "--column" and "--sort" options
that are about listing in a wrong section.
* The transfer.hiderefs support did not quite work for smart-http
* The code that reads from the ctags file in the completion script
(in contrib/) did not spell ${param/pattern/string} substitution
correctly, which happened to work with bash but not with zsh.
* The explanation on "rebase --preserve-merges", "pull --rebase=preserve",
and "push --force-with-lease" in the documentation was unclear.
Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.
