UI, Workflows & Features
+ * The "http.version" configuration variable can be used with recent
+ enough cURL library to force the version of HTTP used to talk when
+ fetching and pushing.
+ * Small fixes and features for fast-export and fast-import, mostly on
+ the fast-export side.
+ * "git push $there $src:$dst" rejects when $dst is not a fully
+ qualified refname and not clear what the end user meant. The
+ codepath has been taught to give a clearer error message, and also
+ guess where the push should go by taking the type of the pushed
+ object into account (e.g. a tag object would want to go under
Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
+ * Code clean-up with optimization for the codepath that checks
+ (non-)existence of loose objects.
+ * More codepaths become aware of working with in-core repository
+ instance other than the default "the_repository".
Fixes since v2.20
+ * Updates for corner cases in merge-recursive.
+ (merge cc4cb0902c en/merge-path-collision later to maint).
+ * "git checkout frotz" (without any double-dash) avoids ambiguity by
+ making sure 'frotz' cannot be interpreted as a revision and as a
+ path at the same time. This safety has been updated to check also
+ a unique remote-tracking branch 'frotz' in a remote, when dwimming
+ to create a local branch 'frotz' out of a remote-tracking branch
+ 'frotz' from a remote.
+ (merge be4908f103 nd/checkout-dwim-fix later to maint).
+ * Refspecs configured with "git -c var=val clone" did not propagate
+ to the resulting repository, which has been corrected.
+ (merge 7eae4a3ac4 sg/clone-initial-fetch-configuration later to maint).
+ * A properly configured username/email is required under
+ user.useConfigOnly in order to create commits; now "git stash"
+ (even though it creates commit objects to represent stash entries)
+ command is exempt from the requirement.
+ (merge 3bc2111fc2 sd/stash-wo-user-name later to maint).
+ * The http-backend CGI process did not correctly clean up the child
+ processes it spawns to run upload-pack etc. when it dies itself,
+ which has been corrected.
+ (merge 02818a98d7 mk/http-backend-kill-children-before-exit later to maint).
* Code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
