GIT v1.5.1.3 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.5.1.2
* Bugfixes
- git-add tried to optimize by finding common leading
directories across its arguments but botched, causing very
confused behaviour.
- unofficial rpm.spec file shipped with git was letting
ETC_GITCONFIG set to /usr/etc/gitconfig. Tweak the official
Makefile to make it harder for distro people to make the
same mistake, by setting the variable to /etc/gitconfig if
prefix is set to /usr.
- git-svn inconsistently stripped away username from the URL
only when svnsync_props was in use.
- git-svn got confused when handling symlinks on Mac OS.
- git-send-email was not quoting recipient names that have
period '.' in them. Also it did not allow overriding
envelope sender, which made it impossible to send patches to
certain subscriber-only lists.
- built-in write_tree() routine had a sequence that renamed a
file that is still open, which some systems did not like.
- when memory is very tight, sliding mmap code to read
packfiles incorrectly closed the fd that was still being
used to read the pack.
- import-tars contributed front-end for fastimport was passing
wrong directory modes without checking.
- git-fastimport trusted its input too much and allowed to
create corrupt tree objects with entries without a name.
- git-fetch needlessly barfed when too long reflog action
description was given by the caller.
Also contains various documentation updates.
