Git v2.4.4 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.4.3
* l10n updates for German.
* An earlier leakfix to bitmap testing code was incomplete.
* "git clean pathspec..." tried to lstat(2) and complain even for
paths outside the given pathspec.
* Communication between the HTTP server and http_backend process can
lead to a dead-lock when relaying a large ref negotiation request.
Diagnose the situation better, and mitigate it by reading such a
request first into core (to a reasonable limit).
* The clean/smudge interface did not work well when filtering an
empty contents (failed and then passed the empty input through).
It can be argued that a filter that produces anything but empty for
an empty input is nonsense, but if the user wants to do strange
things, then why not?
* Make "git stash something --help" error out, so that users can
safely say "git stash drop --help".
* Clarify that "log --raw" and "log --format=raw" are unrelated
* Catch a programmer mistake to feed a pointer not an array to
ARRAY_SIZE() macro, by using a couple of GCC extensions.
Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
