GIT v1.5.1.2 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.5.1.1
* Bugfixes
- "git clone" over http from a repository that has lost the
loose refs by running "git pack-refs" were broken (a code to
deal with this was added to "git fetch" in v1.5.0, but it

- "git diff a/ b/" incorrectly fell in "diff between two
filesystem objects" codepath, when the user most likely
wanted to limit the extent of output to two tracked
- git-quiltimport had the same bug as we fixed for
git-applymbox in v1.5.1.1 -- it gave an alarming "did not
have any patch" message (but did not actually fail and was
- various git-svn fixes.
- Sample update hook incorrectly always refused requests to
delete branches through push.
- git-blame on a very long working tree path had buffer
overrun problem.
- git-apply did not like to be fed two patches in a row that created

- git-svn was confused when a non-project was stored directly under
trunk/, branches/ and tags/.
- git-svn wants the module that was at least as new
as what we ship as part of git; install ours in our private
installation location if the one on the system is older.
- An earlier update to command line integer parameter parser was
botched and made 'update-index --cacheinfo' completely useless.
* Documentation updates
- Various documentation updates from J. Bruce Fields, Frank
Lichtenheld, Alex Riesen and others. Andrew Ruder started a
war on undocumented options.
