Git v2.4.5 Release Notes
Fixes since v2.4.4
* The setup code used to die when core.bare and core.worktree are set
inconsistently, even for commands that do not need working tree.
* There was a dead code that used to handle "git pull --tags" and
show special-cased error message, which was made irrelevant when
the semantics of the option changed back in Git 1.9 days.
* "color.diff.plain" was a misnomer; give it 'color.diff.context' as
a more logical synonym.
* The configuration reader/writer uses mmap(2) interface to access
the files; when we find a directory, it barfed with "Out of memory?".
* Recent "git prune" traverses young unreachable objects to safekeep
old objects in the reachability chain from them, which sometimes
showed unnecessary error messages that are alarming.
* "git rebase -i" fired post-rewrite hook when it shouldn't (namely,
when it was told to stop sequencing with 'exec' insn).
Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code
