git: updated to 2.38.2

Git 2.38.2 Release Notes
========================

This is to backport various fixes accumulated during the development
towards Git 2.39, the next feature release.


Fixes since v2.38.1
-------------------

 * Update CodingGuidelines to clarify what features to use and avoid
   in C99.

 * The codepath that reads from the index v4 had unaligned memory
   accesses, which has been corrected.

 * "git remote rename" failed to rename a remote without fetch
   refspec, which has been corrected.

 * "git clone" did not like to see the "--bare" and the "--origin"
   options used together without a good reason.

 * Fix messages incorrectly marked for translation.

 * "git fsck" failed to release contents of tree objects already used
   from the memory, which has been fixed.

 * "git rebase -i" can mistakenly attempt to apply a fixup to a commit
   itself, which has been corrected.

 * In read-only repositories, "git merge-tree" tried to come up with a
   merge result tree object, which it failed (which is not wrong) and
   led to a segfault (which is bad), which has been corrected.

 * Force C locale while running tests around httpd to make sure we can
   find expected error messages in the log.

 * Fix a logic in "mailinfo -b" that miscomputed the length of a
   substring, which lead to an out-of-bounds access.

 * The codepath to sign learned to report errors when it fails to read
   from "ssh-keygen".

 * "GIT_EDITOR=: git branch --edit-description" resulted in failure,
   which has been corrected.

 * Documentation on various Boolean GIT_* environment variables have
   been clarified.

 * "git multi-pack-index repack/expire" used to repack unreachable
   cruft into a new pack, which have been corrected.

 * The code to clean temporary object directories (used for
   quarantine) tried to remove them inside its signal handler, which
   was a no-no.

 * "git branch --edit-description" on an unborh branch misleadingly
   said that no such branch exists, which has been corrected.

 * GitHub CI settings have been adjusted to recent reality, merging
   and cherry-picking necessary topics that have been prepared for Git
   2.39.

 * `git rebase --update-refs` would delete references when all `update-ref`
   commands in the sequencer were removed, which has been corrected.

Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.

git: updated to 2.38.0

Git v2.38 Release Notes
=======================

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "git remote show [-n] frotz" now pays attention to negative
   pathspec.

 * "git push" sometimes performs poorly when reachability bitmaps are
   used, even in a repository where other operations are helped by
   bitmaps.  The push.useBitmaps configuration variable is introduced
   to allow disabling use of reachability bitmaps only for "git push".

 * "git grep -m<max-hits>" is a way to limit the hits shown per file.

 * "git merge-tree" learned a new mode where it takes two commits and
   computes a tree that would result in the merge commit, if the
   histories leading to these two commits were to be merged.

 * "git mv A B" in a sparsely populated working tree can be asked to
   move a path between directories that are "in cone" (i.e. expected
   to be materialized in the working tree) and "out of cone"
   (i.e. expected to be hidden).  The handling of such cases has been
   improved.

 * Earlier, HTTP transport clients learned to tell the server side
   what locale they are in by sending Accept-Language HTTP header, but
   this was done only for some requests but not others.

 * Introduce a safe.barerepository configuration variable that
   allows users to forbid discovery of bare repositories.

 * Various messages that come from the pack-bitmap codepaths have been
   tweaked.

 * "git rebase -i" learns to update branches whose tip appear in the
   rebased range with "--update-refs" option.

 * "git ls-files" learns the "--format" option to tweak its output.

 * "git cat-file" learned an option to use the mailmap when showing
   commit and tag objects.

 * When "git merge" finds that it cannot perform a merge, it should
   restore the working tree to the state before the command was
   initiated, but in some corner cases it didn't.

 * Operating modes like "--batch" of "git cat-file" command learned to
   take NUL-terminated input, instead of one-item-per-line.

 * "git rm" has become more aware of the sparse-index feature.

 * "git rev-list --disk-usage" learned to take an optional value
   "human" to show the reported value in human-readable format, like
   "3.40MiB".

 * The "diagnose" feature to create a zip archive for diagnostic
   material has been lifted from "scalar" and made into a feature of
   "git bugreport".

 * The namespaces used by "log --decorate" from "refs/" hierarchy by
   default has been tightened.

 * "git rev-list --ancestry-path=C A..B" is a natural extension of
   "git rev-list A..B"; instead of choosing a subset of A..B to those
   that have ancestry relationship with A, it lets a subset with
   ancestry relationship with C.

 * "scalar" now enables built-in fsmonitor on enlisted repositories,
   when able.

 * The bash prompt (in contrib/) learned to optionally indicate when
   the index is unmerged.

 * "git clone" command learned the "--bundle-uri" option to coordinate
   with hosting sites the use of pre-prepared bundle files.

 * "git range-diff" learned to honor pathspec argument if given.

 * "git format-patch --from=<ident>" can be told to add an in-body
   "From:" line even for commits that are authored by the given
   <ident> with "--force-in-body-from" option.

 * The built-in fsmonitor refuses to work on a network mounted
   repositories; a configuration knob for users to override this has
   been introduced.

 * The "scalar" addition from Microsoft is now part of the core Git
   installation.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * Collection of what is referenced by objects in promisor packs have
   been optimized to inspect these objects in the in-pack order.

 * Introduce a helper to see if a branch is already being worked on
   (hence should not be newly checked out in a working tree), which
   performs much better than the existing find_shared_symref() to
   replace many uses of the latter.

 * Teach "git archive" to (optionally and then by default) avoid
   spawning an external "gzip" process when creating ".tar.gz" (and
   ".tgz") archives.

 * Allow large objects read from a packstream to be streamed into a
   loose object file straight, without having to keep it in-core as a
   whole.

 * Further preparation to turn git-submodule.sh into a builtin
   continues.

 * Apply Coccinelle rule to turn raw memmove() into MOVE_ARRAY() cpp
   macro, which would improve maintainability and readability.

 * Teach "make all" to build gitweb as well.

 * Tweak tests so that they still work when the "git init" template
   did not create .git/info directory.

 * Add Coccinelle rules to detect the pattern of initializing and then
   finalizing a structure without using it in between at all, which
   happens after code restructuring and the compilers fail to
   recognize as an unused variable.

 * The code to convert between GPG trust level strings and internal
   constants we use to represent them have been cleaned up.

 * Support for libnettle as SHA256 implementation has been added.

 * The way "git multi-pack" uses parse-options API has been improved.

 * A Coccinelle rule (in contrib/) to encourage use of COPY_ARRAY
   macro has been improved.

 * API tweak to make it easier to run fuzz testing on commit-graph parser.

 * Omit fsync-related trace2 entries when their values are all zero.

 * The codepath to write multi-pack index has been taught to release a
   large chunk of memory that holds an array of objects in the packs,
   as soon as it is done with the array, to reduce memory consumption.

 * Add a level of redirection to array allocation API in xdiff part,
   to make it easier to share with the libgit2 project.

 * "git fetch" client logs the partial clone filter used in the trace2
   output.

 * The "bundle URI" design gets documented.

 * The common ancestor negotiation exchange during a "git fetch"
   session now leaves trace log.

 * Test portability improvements.
   (merge 4d1d843be7 mt/rot13-in-c later to maint).

 * The "subcommand" mode is introduced to parse-options API and update
   the command line parser of Git commands with subcommands.

 * The pack bitmap file gained a bitmap-lookup table to speed up
   locating the necessary bitmap for a given commit.

 * The assembly version of SHA-1 implementation for PPC has been
   removed.

 * The server side that responds to "git fetch" and "git clone"
   request has been optimized by allowing it to send objects in its
   object store without recomputing and validating the object names.

 * Annotate function parameters that are not used (but cannot be
   removed for structural reasons), to prepare us to later compile
   with -Wunused warning turned on.

 * Share the text used to explain configuration variables used by "git
   <subcmd>" in "git help <subcmd>" with the text from "git help config".

 * "git mv A B" in a sparsely populated working tree can be asked to
   move a path from a directory that is "in cone" to another directory
   that is "out of cone".  Handling of such a case has been improved.

 * The chainlint script for our tests has been revamped.


Fixes since v2.37
-----------------

 * Rewrite of "git add -i" in C that appeared in Git 2.25 didn't
   correctly record a removed file to the index, which was fixed.

 * Certain diff options are currently ignored when combined-diff is
   shown; mark them as incompatible with the feature.

 * Adjust technical/bitmap-format to be formatted by AsciiDoc, and
   add some missing information to the documentation.

 * Fixes for tests when the source directory has unusual characters in
   its path, e.g. whitespaces, double-quotes, etc.

 * "git mktree --missing" lazily fetched objects that are missing from
   the local object store, which was totally unnecessary for the purpose
   of creating the tree object(s) from its input.

 * Give _() markings to fatal/warning/usage: labels that are shown in
   front of these messages.

 * References to commands-to-be-typed-literally in "git rebase"
   documentation mark-up have been corrected.

 * In a non-bare repository, the behavior of Git when the
   core.worktree configuration variable points at a directory that has
   a repository as its subdirectory, regressed in Git 2.27 days.

 * Recent update to vimdiff layout code has been made more robust
   against different end-user vim settings.

 * Plug various memory leaks, both in the main code and in test-tool
   commands.

 * Fixes a long-standing corner case bug around directory renames in
   the merge-ort strategy.

 * The resolve-undo information in the index was not protected against
   GC, which has been corrected.

 * A corner case bug where lazily fetching objects from a promisor
   remote resulted in infinite recursion has been corrected.

 * "git clone" from a repository with some ref whose HEAD is unborn
   did not set the HEAD in the resulting repository correctly, which
   has been corrected.

 * An earlier attempt to plug leaks placed a clean-up label to jump to
   at a bogus place, which as been corrected.

 * Variable quoting fix in the vimdiff driver of "git mergetool"

 * "git shortlog -n" relied on the underlying qsort() to be stable,
   which shouldn't have.  Fixed.

 * A fix for a regression in test framework.

 * mkstemp() emulation on Windows has been improved.

 * Add missing documentation for "include" and "includeIf" features in
   "git config" file format, which incidentally teaches the command
   line completion to include them in its offerings.

 * Avoid "white/black-list" in documentation and code comments.

 * Workaround for a compiler warning against use of die() in
   osx-keychain (in contrib/).

 * Workaround for a false positive compiler warning.

 * "git p4" working on UTF-16 files on Windows did not implement
   CRLF-to-LF conversion correctly, which has been corrected.

 * "git p4" did not handle non-ASCII client name well, which has been
   corrected.

 * "rerere-train" script (in contrib/) used to honor commit.gpgSign
   while recreating the throw-away merges.

 * "git checkout" miscounted the paths it updated, which has been
   corrected.

 * Fix for a bug that makes write-tree to fail to write out a
   non-existent index as a tree, introduced in 2.37.

 * There was a bug in the codepath to upgrade generation information
   in commit-graph from v1 to v2 format, which has been corrected.

 * Gitweb had legacy URL shortener that is specific to the way
   projects hosted on kernel.org used to (but no longer) work, which
   has been removed.

 * Fix build procedure for Windows that uses CMake so that it can pick
   up the shell interpreter from local installation location.

 * Conditionally allow building Python interpreter on Windows

 * Fix to lstat() emulation on Windows.

 * Older gcc with -Wall complains about the universal zero initializer
   "struct s = { 0 };" idiom, which makes developers' lives
   inconvenient (as -Werror is enabled by DEVELOPER=YesPlease).  The
   build procedure has been tweaked to help these compilers.

 * Plug memory leaks in the failure code path in the "merge-ort" merge
   strategy backend.

 * "git symbolic-ref symref non..sen..se" is now diagnosed as an error.

 * A follow-up fix to a fix for a regression in 2.36 around hooks.

 * Avoid repeatedly running getconf to ask libc version in the test
   suite, and instead just as it once per script.

 * Platform-specific code that determines if a directory is OK to use
   as a repository has been taught to report more details, especially
   on Windows.

 * "vimdiff3" regression fix.

 * "git fsck" reads mode from tree objects but canonicalizes the mode
   before passing it to the logic to check object sanity, which has
   hid broken tree objects from the checking logic.  This has been
   corrected, but to help existing projects with broken tree objects
   that they cannot fix retroactively, the severity of anomalies this
   code detects has been demoted to "info" for now.

 * Fixes to sparse index compatibility work for "reset" and "checkout"
   commands.

 * An earlier optimization discarded a tree-object buffer that is
   still in use, which has been corrected.

 * Fix deadlocks between main Git process and subprocess spawned via
   the pipe_command() API, that can kill "git add -p" that was
   reimplemented in C recently.

 * The sequencer machinery translated messages left in the reflog by
   mistake, which has been corrected.

 * xcalloc(), imitating calloc(), takes "number of elements of the
   array", and "size of a single element", in this order.  A call that
   does not follow this ordering has been corrected.

 * The preload-index codepath made copies of pathspec to give to
   multiple threads, which were left leaked.

 * Update the version of Ubuntu used for GitHub Actions CI from 18.04
   to 22.04.

 * The auto-stashed local changes created by "git merge --autostash"
   was mixed into a conflicted state left in the working tree, which
   has been corrected.

 * Multi-pack index got corrupted when preferred pack changed from one
   pack to another in a certain way, which has been corrected.
   (merge 99e4d084ff tb/midx-with-changing-preferred-pack-fix later to maint).

 * The clean-up of temporary files created via mks_tempfile_dt() was
   racy and attempted to unlink() the leading directory when signals
   are involved, which has been corrected.
   (merge babe2e0559 rs/tempfile-cleanup-race-fix later to maint).

 * FreeBSD portability fix for "git maintenance" that spawns "crontab"
   to schedule tasks.
   (merge ee69e7884e bc/gc-crontab-fix later to maint).

 * Those who use diff-so-fancy as the diff-filter noticed a regression
   or two in the code that parses the diff output in the built-in
   version of "add -p", which has been corrected.
   (merge 0a101676e5 js/add-p-diff-parsing-fix later to maint).

 * Segfault fix-up to an earlier fix to the topic to teach "git reset"
   and "git checkout" work better in a sparse checkout.
   (merge 037f8ea6d9 vd/sparse-reset-checkout-fixes later to maint).

 * "git diff --no-index A B" managed its the pathnames of its two
   input files rather haphazardly, sometimes leaking them.  The
   command line argument processing has been straightened out to clean
   it up.
   (merge 2b43dd0eb5 rs/diff-no-index-cleanup later to maint).

 * "git rev-list --verify-objects" ought to inspect the contents of
   objects and notice corrupted ones, but it didn't when the commit
   graph is in use, which has been corrected.
   (merge b27ccae34b jk/rev-list-verify-objects-fix later to maint).

 * More fixes to "add -p"
   (merge 64ec8efb83 js/builtin-add-p-portability-fix later to maint).

 * The parser in the script interface to parse-options in "git
   rev-parse" has been updated to diagnose a bogus input correctly.
   (merge f20b9c36d0 ow/rev-parse-parseopt-fix later to maint).

 * The code that manages list-object-filter structure, used in partial
   clones, leaked the instances, which has been plugged.
   (merge 66eede4a37 jk/plug-list-object-filter-leaks later to maint).

 * Fix another UI regression in the reimplemented "add -p".
   (merge f6f0ee247f rs/add-p-worktree-mode-prompt-fix later to maint).

 * "git fetch" over protocol v2 sent an incorrect ref prefix request
   to the server and made "git pull" with configured fetch refspec
   that does not cover the remote branch to merge with fail, which has
   been corrected.
   (merge 49ca2fba39 jk/proto-v2-ref-prefix-fix later to maint).

 * A result from opendir() was leaking in the commit-graph expiration
   codepath, which has been plugged.
   (merge 12f1ae5324 ml/commit-graph-expire-dir-leak-fix later to maint).

 * Just like we have coding guidelines, we now have guidelines for
   reviewers.
   (merge e01b851923 vd/doc-reviewing-guidelines later to maint).

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
   (merge 77b9e85c0f vd/fix-perf-tests later to maint).
   (merge 0682bc43f5 jk/test-crontab-fixes later to maint).

git: updated to 2.37.0

Git v2.37 Release Notes
=======================

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "vimdiff[123]" mergetool drivers have been reimplemented with a
   more generic layout mechanism.

 * "git -v" and "git -h" are now understood as "git --version" and
   "git --help".

 * The temporary files fed to external diff command are now generated
   inside a new temporary directory under the same basename.

 * "git log --since=X" will stop traversal upon seeing a commit that
   is older than X, but there may be commits behind it that is younger
   than X when the commit was created with a faulty clock.  A new
   option is added to keep digging without stopping, and instead
   filter out commits with timestamp older than X.

 * "git -c branch.autosetupmerge=simple branch $A $B" will set the $B
   as $A's upstream only when $A and $B shares the same name, and "git
   -c push.default=simple" on branch $A would push to update the
   branch $A at the remote $B came from.  Also more places use the
   sole remote, if exists, before defaulting to 'origin'.

 * A new doc has been added that lists tips for tools to work with
   Git's codebase.

 * "git remote -v" now shows the list-objects-filter used during
   fetching from the remote, if available.

 * With the new http.curloptResolve configuration, the CURLOPT_RESOLVE
   mechanism that allows cURL based applications to use pre-resolved
   IP addresses for the requests is exposed to the scripts.

 * "git add -i" was rewritten in C some time ago and has been in
   testing; the reimplementation is now exposed to general public by
   default.

 * Deprecate non-cone mode of the sparse-checkout feature.

 * Introduce a filesystem-dependent mechanism to optimize the way the
   bits for many loose object files are ensured to hit the disk
   platter.

 * The "do not remove the directory the user started Git in" logic,
   when Git cannot tell where that directory is, is disabled.  Earlier
   we refused to run in such a case.

 * A mechanism to pack unreachable objects into a "cruft pack",
   instead of ejecting them into loose form to be reclaimed later, has
   been introduced.

 * Update the doctype written in gitweb output to xhtml5.

 * The "transfer.credentialsInURL" configuration variable controls what
   happens when a URL with embedded login credential is used on either
   "fetch" or "push". Credentials are currently only detected in
   `remote.<name>.url` config, not `remote.<name>.pushurl`.

 * "git revert" learns "--reference" option to use more human-readable
   reference to the commit it reverts in the message template it
   prepares for the user.

 * Various error messages that talk about the removal of
   "--preserve-merges" in "rebase" have been strengthened, and "rebase
   --abort" learned to get out of a state that was left by an earlier
   use of the option.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The performance of the "untracked cache" feature has been improved
   when "--untracked-files=<mode>" and "status.showUntrackedFiles"
   are combined.

 * "git stash" works better with sparse index entries.

 * "git show :<path>" learned to work better with the sparse-index
   feature.

 * Introduce and apply coccinelle rule to discourage an explicit
   comparison between a pointer and NULL, and applies the clean-up to
   the maintenance track.

 * Preliminary code refactoring around transport and bundle code.

 * "sparse-checkout" learns to work better with the sparse-index
   feature.

 * A workflow change for translators are being proposed.  git.pot is
   no longer version controlled and it is local responsibility of
   translators to generate it.

 * Plug the memory leaks from the trickiest API of all, the revision
   walker.

 * Rename .env_array member to .env in the child_process structure.

  * The fsmonitor--daemon handles even more corner cases when
    watching filesystem events.

 * A new bug() and BUG_if_bug() API is introduced to make it easier to
   uniformly log "detect multiple bugs and abort in the end" pattern.


Fixes since v2.36
-----------------

 * "git submodule update" without pathspec should silently skip an
   uninitialized submodule, but it started to become noisy by mistake.
   (merge 4f1ccef87c gc/submodule-update-part2 later to maint).

 * "diff-tree --stdin" has been broken for about a year, but 2.36
   release broke it even worse by breaking running the command with
   <pathspec>, which in turn broke "gitk" and got noticed.  This has
   been corrected by aligning its behaviour to that of "log".
   (merge f8781bfda3 jc/diff-tree-stdin-fix later to maint).

 * Regression fix for 2.36 where "git name-rev" started to sometimes
   reference strings after they are freed.
   (merge 45a14f578e rs/name-rev-fix-free-after-use later to maint).

 * "git show <commit1> <commit2>... -- <pathspec>" lost the pathspec
   when showing the second and subsequent commits, which has been
   corrected.
   (merge 5cdb38458e jc/show-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * "git fast-export -- <pathspec>" lost the pathspec when showing the
   second and subsequent commits, which has been corrected.
   (merge d1c25272f5 rs/fast-export-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * "git format-patch <args> -- <pathspec>" lost the pathspec when
   showing the second and subsequent commits, which has been
   corrected.
   (merge 91f8f7e46f rs/format-patch-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * "git clone --origin X" leaked piece of memory that held value read
   from the clone.defaultRemoteName configuration variable, which has
   been plugged.
   (merge 6dfadc8981 jc/clone-remote-name-leak-fix later to maint).

 * Get rid of a bogus and over-eager coccinelle rule.
   (merge 08bdd3a185 jc/cocci-xstrdup-or-null-fix later to maint).

 * The path taken by "git multi-pack-index" command from the end user
   was compared with path internally prepared by the tool without first
   normalizing, which lead to duplicated paths not being noticed,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge 11f9e8de3d ds/midx-normalize-pathname-before-comparison later to maint).

 * Correct choices of C compilers used in various CI jobs.
   (merge 3506cae04f ab/cc-package-fixes later to maint).

 * Various cleanups to "git p4".
   (merge 4ff0108d9e jh/p4-various-fixups later to maint).

 * The progress meter of "git blame" was showing incorrect numbers
   when processing only parts of the file.
   (merge e5f5d7d42e ea/progress-partial-blame later to maint).

 * "git rebase --keep-base <upstream> <branch-to-rebase>" computed the
   commit to rebase onto incorrectly, which has been corrected.
   (merge 9e5ebe9668 ah/rebase-keep-base-fix later to maint).

 * Fix a leak of FILE * in an error codepath.
   (merge c0befa0c03 kt/commit-graph-plug-fp-leak-on-error later to maint).

 * Avoid problems from interaction between malloc_check and address
   sanitizer.
   (merge 067109a5e7 pw/test-malloc-with-sanitize-address later to maint).

 * The commit summary shown after making a commit is matched to what
   is given in "git status" not to use the break-rewrite heuristics.
   (merge 84792322ed rs/commit-summary-wo-break-rewrite later to maint).

 * Update a few end-user facing messages around EOL conversion.
   (merge c970d30c2c ah/convert-warning-message later to maint).

 * Trace2 documentation updates.
   (merge a6c80c313c js/trace2-doc-fixes later to maint).

 * Build procedure fixup.
   (merge 1fbfd96f50 mg/detect-compiler-in-c-locale later to maint).

 * "git pull" without "--recurse-submodules=<arg>" made
   submodule.recurse take precedence over fetch.recurseSubmodules by
   mistake, which has been corrected.
   (merge 5819417365 gc/pull-recurse-submodules later to maint).

 * "git bisect" was too silent before it is ready to start computing
   the actual bisection, which has been corrected.
   (merge f11046e6de cd/bisect-messages-from-pre-flight-states later to maint).

 * macOS CI jobs have been occasionally flaky due to tentative version
   skew between perforce and the homebrew packager.  Instead of
   failing the whole CI job, just let it skip the p4 tests when this
   happens.
   (merge f15e00b463 cb/ci-make-p4-optional later to maint).

 * A bit of test framework fixes with a few fixes to issues found by
   valgrind.
   (merge 7c898554d7 ab/valgrind-fixes later to maint).

 * "git archive --add-file=<path>" picked up the raw permission bits
   from the path and propagated to zip output in some cases, without
   normalization, which has been corrected (tar output did not have
   this issue).
   (merge 6a61661967 jc/archive-add-file-normalize-mode later to maint).

 * "make coverage-report" without first running "make coverage" did
   not produce any meaningful result, which has been corrected.
   (merge 96ddfecc5b ep/coverage-report-wants-test-to-have-run later to maint).

 * The "--current" option of "git show-branch" should have been made
   incompatible with the "--reflog" mode, but this was not enforced,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge 41c64ae0e7 jc/show-branch-g-current later to maint).

 * "git fetch" unnecessarily failed when an unexpected optional
   section appeared in the output, which has been corrected.
   (merge 7709acf7be jt/fetch-peek-optional-section later to maint).

 * The way "git fetch" without "--update-head-ok" ensures that HEAD in
   no worktree points at any ref being updated was too wasteful, which
   has been optimized a bit.
   (merge f7400da800 os/fetch-check-not-current-branch later to maint).

 * "git fetch --recurse-submodules" from multiple remotes (either from
   a remote group, or "--all") used to make one extra "git fetch" in
   the submodules, which has been corrected.
   (merge 0353c68818 jc/avoid-redundant-submodule-fetch later to maint).

 * With a recent update to refuse access to repositories of other
   people by default, "sudo make install" and "sudo git describe"
   stopped working, which has been corrected.
   (merge 6b11e3d52e cb/path-owner-check-with-sudo-plus later to maint).

 * The tests that ensured merges stop when interfering local changes
   are present did not make sure that local changes are preserved; now
   they do.
   (merge 4b317450ce jc/t6424-failing-merge-preserve-local-changes later to maint).

 * Some real problems noticed by gcc 12 have been fixed, while false
   positives have been worked around.

 * Update the version of FreeBSD image used in Cirrus CI.
   (merge c58bebd4c6 pb/use-freebsd-12.3-in-cirrus-ci later to maint).

 * The multi-pack-index code did not protect the packfile it is going
   to depend on from getting removed while in use, which has been
   corrected.
   (merge 4090511e40 tb/midx-race-in-pack-objects later to maint).

 * Teach "git repack --geometric" work better with "--keep-pack" and
   avoid corrupting the repository when packsize limit is used.
   (merge 66731ff921 tb/geom-repack-with-keep-and-max later to maint).

 * The documentation on the interaction between "--add-file" and
   "--prefix" options of "git archive" has been improved.
   (merge a75910602a rs/document-archive-prefix later to maint).

 * A git subcommand like "git add -p" spawns a separate git process
   while relaying its command line arguments.  A pathspec with only
   negative elements was mistakenly passed with an empty string, which
   has been corrected.
   (merge b02fdbc80a jc/all-negative-pathspec later to maint).

 * With a more targeted workaround in http.c in another topic, we may
   be able to lift this blanket "GCC12 dangling-pointer warning is
   broken and unsalvageable" workaround.
   (merge 419141e495 cb/buggy-gcc-12-workaround later to maint).

 * A misconfigured 'branch..remote' led to a bug in configuration
   parsing.
   (merge f1dfbd9ee0 gc/zero-length-branch-config-fix later to maint).

 * "git -c diff.submodule=log range-diff" did not show anything for
   submodules that changed in the ranges being compared, and
   "git -c diff.submodule=diff range-diff" did not work correctly.
   Fix this by including the "--submodule=short" output
   unconditionally to be compared.

 * In Git 2.36 we revamped the way how hooks are invoked.  One change
   that is end-user visible is that the output of a hook is no longer
   directly connected to the standard output of "git" that spawns the
   hook, which was noticed post release.  This is getting corrected.
   (merge a082345372 ab/hooks-regression-fix later to maint).

 * Updating the graft information invalidates the list of parents of
   in-core commit objects that used to be in the graft file.

 * "git show-ref --heads" (and "--tags") still iterated over all the
   refs only to discard refs outside the specified area, which has
   been corrected.
   (merge c0c9d35e27 tb/show-ref-optim later to maint).

 * Remove redundant copying (with index v3 and older) or possible
   over-reading beyond end of mmapped memory (with index v4) has been
   corrected.
   (merge 6d858341d2 zh/read-cache-copy-name-entry-fix later to maint).

 * Sample watchman interface hook sometimes failed to produce
   correctly formatted JSON message, which has been corrected.
   (merge 134047b500 sn/fsmonitor-missing-clock later to maint).

 * Use-after-free (with another forget-to-free) fix.
   (merge 323822c72b ab/remote-free-fix later to maint).

 * Remove a coccinelle rule that is no longer relevant.
   (merge b1299de4a1 jc/cocci-cleanup later to maint).

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
   (merge e6b2582da3 cm/reftable-0-length-memset later to maint).

git: updated to 2.35.0

Git 2.35 Release Notes
======================

Updates since Git 2.34
----------------------

Backward compatibility warts

 * "_" is now treated as any other URL-valid characters in an URL when
   matching the per-URL configuration variable names.

 * The color palette used by "git grep" has been updated to match that
   of GNU grep.


Note to those who build from the source

 * You may need to define NO_UNCOMPRESS2 Makefile macro if you build
   with zlib older than 1.2.9.

 * If your compiler cannot grok C99, the build will fail.  See the
   instruction at the beginning of git-compat-util.h if this happens
   to you.


UI, Workflows & Features

 * "git status --porcelain=v2" now show the number of stash entries
   with --show-stash like the normal output does.

 * "git stash" learned the "--staged" option to stash away what has
   been added to the index (and nothing else).

 * "git var GIT_DEFAULT_BRANCH" is a way to see what name is used for
   the newly created branch if "git init" is run.

 * Various operating modes of "git reset" have been made to work
   better with the sparse index.

 * "git submodule deinit" for a submodule whose .git metadata
   directory is embedded in its working tree refused to work, until
   the submodule gets converted to use the "absorbed" form where the
   metadata directory is stored in superproject, and a gitfile at the
   top-level of the working tree of the submodule points at it.  The
   command is taught to convert such submodules to the absorbed form
   as needed.

 * The completion script (in contrib/) learns that the "--date"
   option of commands from the "git log" family takes "human" and
   "auto" as valid values.

 * "Zealous diff3" style of merge conflict presentation has been added.

 * The "git log --format=%(describe)" placeholder has been extended to
   allow passing selected command-line options to the underlying "git
   describe" command.

 * "default" and "reset" have been added to our color palette.

 * The cryptographic signing using ssh keys can specify literal keys
   for keytypes whose name do not begin with the "ssh-" prefix by
   using the "key::" prefix mechanism (e.g. "key::ecdsa-sha2-nistp256").

 * "git fetch" without the "--update-head-ok" option ought to protect
   a checked out branch from getting updated, to prevent the working
   tree that checks it out to go out of sync.  The code was written
   before the use of "git worktree" got widespread, and only checked
   the branch that was checked out in the current worktree, which has
   been updated.

 * "git name-rev" has been tweaked to give output that is shorter and
   easier to understand.

 * "git apply" has been taught to ignore a message without a patch
   with the "--allow-empty" option.  It also learned to honor the
   "--quiet" option given from the command line.

 * The "init" and "set" subcommands in "git sparse-checkout" have been
   unified for a better user experience and performance.

 * Many git commands that deal with working tree files try to remove a
   directory that becomes empty (i.e. "git switch" from a branch that
   has the directory to another branch that does not would attempt
   remove all files in the directory and the directory itself).  This
   drops users into an unfamiliar situation if the command was run in
   a subdirectory that becomes subject to removal due to the command.
   The commands have been taught to keep an empty directory if it is
   the directory they were started in to avoid surprising users.

 * "git am" learns "--empty=(stop|drop|keep)" option to tweak what is
   done to a piece of e-mail without a patch in it.

 * The default merge message prepared by "git merge" records the name
   of the current branch; the name can be overridden with a new option
   to allow users to pretend a merge is made on a different branch.

 * The way "git p4" shows file sizes in its output has been updated to
   use human-readable units.

 * "git -c branch.autosetupmerge=inherit branch new old" makes "new"
   to have the same upstream as the "old" branch, instead of marking
   "old" itself as its upstream.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The use of errno as a means to carry the nature of error in the ref
   API implementation has been reworked and reduced.

 * Teach and encourage first-time contributors to this project to
   state the base commit when they submit their topic.

 * The command line completion for "git send-email" options have been
   tweaked to make it easier to keep it in sync with the command itself.

 * Ensure that the sparseness of the in-core index matches the
   index.sparse configuration specified by the repository immediately
   after the on-disk index file is read.

 * Code clean-up to eventually allow information on remotes defined
   for an arbitrary repository to be read.

 * Build optimization.

 * Tighten code for testing pack-bitmap.

 * Weather balloon to break people with compilers that do not support
   C99.

 * The "reftable" backend for the refs API, without integrating into
   the refs subsystem, has been added.

 * More tests are marked as leak-free.

 * The test framework learns to list unsatisfied test prerequisites,
   and optionally error out when prerequisites that are expected to be
   satisfied are not.

 * The default setting for trace2 event nesting was too low to cause
   test failures, which is worked around by bumping it up in the test
   framework.

 * Drop support for TravisCI and update test workflows at GitHub.

 * Many tests that used to need GIT_TEST_DEFAULT_INITIAL_BRANCH_NAME
   mechanism to force "git" to use 'master' as the default name for
   the initial branch no longer need it; the use of the mechanism from
   them have been removed.

 * Allow running our tests while disabling fsync.

 * Document the parameters given to the reflog entry iterator callback
   functions.
   (merge e6e94f34b2 jc/reflog-iterator-callback-doc later to maint).

 * The test helper for refs subsystem learned to write bogus and/or
   nonexistent object name to refs to simulate error situations we
   want to test Git in.

 * "diff --histogram" optimization.

 * Weather balloon to find compilers that do not grok variable
   declaration in the for() loop.

 * diff and blame commands have been taught to work better with sparse
   index.

 * The chainlint test script linter in the test suite has been updated.

 * The DEVELOPER=yes build uses -std=gnu99 now.

 * "git format-patch" uses a single rev_info instance and then exits.
   Mark the structure with UNLEAK() macro to squelch leak sanitizer.

 * New interface into the tmp-objdir API to help in-core use of the
   quarantine feature.

 * Broken &&-chains in the test scripts have been corrected.

 * The RCS keyword substitution in "git p4" used to be done assuming
   that the contents are UTF-8 text, which can trigger decoding
   errors.  We now treat the contents as a bytestring for robustness
   and correctness.

 * The conditions to choose different definitions of the FLEX_ARRAY
   macro for vendor compilers has been simplified to make it easier to
   maintain.

 * Correctness and performance update to "diff --color-moved" feature.

 * "git upload-pack" (the other side of "git fetch") used a 8kB buffer
   but most of its payload came on 64kB "packets".  The buffer size
   has been enlarged so that such a packet fits.

 * "git fetch" and "git pull" are now declared sparse-index clean.
   Also "git ls-files" learns the "--sparse" option to help debugging.

 * Similar message templates have been consolidated so that
   translators need to work on fewer number of messages.


Fixes since v2.34
-----------------

 * "git grep" looking in a blob that has non-UTF8 payload was
   completely broken when linked with certain versions of PCREv2
   library in the latest release.

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.

 * "git pull" with any strategy when the other side is behind us
   should succeed as it is a no-op, but doesn't.

 * An earlier change in 2.34.0 caused JGit application (that abused
   GIT_EDITOR mechanism when invoking "git config") to get stuck with
   a SIGTTOU signal; it has been reverted.

 * An earlier change that broke .gitignore matching has been reverted.

 * Things like "git -c branch.sort=bogus branch new HEAD", i.e. the
   operation modes of the "git branch" command that do not need the
   sort key information, no longer errors out by seeing a bogus sort
   key.
   (merge 98e7ab6d42 jc/fix-ref-sorting-parse later to maint).

 * The compatibility implementation for unsetenv(3) were written to
   mimic ancient, non-POSIX, variant seen in an old glibc; it has been
   changed to return an integer to match the more modern era.
   (merge a38989bd5b jc/unsetenv-returns-an-int later to maint).

 * The clean/smudge conversion code path has been prepared to better
   work on platforms where ulong is narrower than size_t.
   (merge 596b5e77c9 mc/clean-smudge-with-llp64 later to maint).

 * Redact the path part of packfile URI that appears in the trace output.
   (merge 0ba558ffb1 if/redact-packfile-uri later to maint).

 * CI has been taught to catch some Unicode directional formatting
   sequence that can be used in certain mischief.
   (merge 0e7696c64d js/ci-no-directional-formatting later to maint).

 * The "--date=format:<strftime>" gained a workaround for the lack of
   system support for a non-local timezone to handle "%s" placeholder.
   (merge 9b591b9403 jk/strbuf-addftime-seconds-since-epoch later to maint).

 * The "merge" subcommand of "git jump" (in contrib/) silently ignored
   pathspec and other parameters.
   (merge 67ba13e5a4 jk/jump-merge-with-pathspec later to maint).

 * The code to decode the length of packed object size has been
   corrected.
   (merge 34de5b8eac jt/pack-header-lshift-overflow later to maint).

 * The advice message given by "git pull" when the user hasn't made a
   choice between merge and rebase still said that the merge is the
   default, which no longer is the case.  This has been corrected.
   (merge 71076d0edd ah/advice-pull-has-no-preference-between-rebase-and-merge later to maint).

 * "git fetch", when received a bad packfile, can fail with SIGPIPE.
   This wasn't wrong per-se, but we now detect the situation and fail
   in a more predictable way.
   (merge 2a4aed42ec jk/fetch-pack-avoid-sigpipe-to-index-pack later to maint).

 * The function to cull a child process and determine the exit status
   had two separate code paths for normal callers and callers in a
   signal handler, and the latter did not yield correct value when the
   child has caught a signal.  The handling of the exit status has
   been unified for these two code paths.  An existing test with
   flakiness has also been corrected.
   (merge 5263e22cba jk/t7006-sigpipe-tests-fix later to maint).

 * When a non-existent program is given as the pager, we tried to
   reuse an uninitialized child_process structure and crashed, which
   has been fixed.
   (merge f917f57f40 em/missing-pager later to maint).

 * The single-key-input mode in "git add -p" had some code to handle
   keys that generate a sequence of input via ReadKey(), which did not
   handle end-of-file correctly, which has been fixed.
   (merge fc8a8126df cb/add-p-single-key-fix later to maint).

 * "git rebase -x" added an unnecessary 'exec' instructions before
   'noop', which has been corrected.
   (merge cc9dcdee61 en/rebase-x-fix later to maint).

 * When the "git push" command is killed while the receiving end is
   trying to report what happened to the ref update proposals, the
   latter used to die, due to SIGPIPE.  The code now ignores SIGPIPE
   to increase our chances to run the post-receive hook after it
   happens.
   (merge d34182b9e3 rj/receive-pack-avoid-sigpipe-during-status-reporting later to maint).

 * "git worktree add" showed "Preparing worktree" message to the
   standard output stream, but when it failed, the message from die()
   went to the standard error stream.  Depending on the order the
   stdio streams are flushed at the program end, this resulted in
   confusing output.  It has been corrected by sending all the chatty
   messages to the standard error stream.
   (merge b50252484f es/worktree-chatty-to-stderr later to maint).

 * Coding guideline document has been updated to clarify what goes to
   standard error in our system.
   (merge e258eb4800 es/doc-stdout-vs-stderr later to maint).

 * The sparse-index/sparse-checkout feature had a bug in its use of
   the matching code to determine which path is in or outside the
   sparse checkout patterns.
   (merge 8c5de0d265 ds/sparse-deep-pattern-checkout-fix later to maint).

 * "git rebase -x" by mistake started exporting the GIT_DIR and
   GIT_WORK_TREE environment variables when the command was rewritten
   in C, which has been corrected.
   (merge 434e0636db en/rebase-x-wo-git-dir-env later to maint).

 * When "git log" implicitly enabled the "decoration" processing
   without being explicitly asked with "--decorate" option, it failed
   to read and honor the settings given by the "--decorate-refs"
   option.

 * "git fetch --set-upstream" did not check if there is a current
   branch, leading to a segfault when it is run on a detached HEAD,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge 17baeaf82d ab/fetch-set-upstream-while-detached later to maint).

 * Among some code paths that ask an yes/no question, only one place
   gave a prompt that looked different from the others, which has been
   updated to match what the others create.
   (merge 0fc8ed154c km/help-prompt-fix later to maint).

 * "git log --invert-grep --author=<name>" used to exclude commits
   written by the given author, but now "--invert-grep" only affects
   the matches made by the "--grep=<pattern>" option.
   (merge 794c000267 rs/log-invert-grep-with-headers later to maint).

 * "git grep --perl-regexp" failed to match UTF-8 characters with
   wildcard when the pattern consists only of ASCII letters, which has
   been corrected.
   (merge 32e3e8bc55 rs/pcre2-utf later to maint).

 * Certain sparse-checkout patterns that are valid in non-cone mode
   led to segfault in cone mode, which has been corrected.

 * Use of certain "git rev-list" options with "git fast-export"
   created nonsense results (the worst two of which being "--reverse"
   and "--invert-grep --grep=<foo>").  The use of "--first-parent" is
   made to behave a bit more sensible than before.
   (merge 726a228dfb ws/fast-export-with-revision-options later to maint).

 * Perf tests were run with end-user's shell, but it has been
   corrected to use the shell specified by $TEST_SHELL_PATH.
   (merge 9ccab75608 ja/perf-use-specified-shell later to maint).

 * Fix dependency rules to generate hook-list.h header file.
   (merge d3fd1a6667 ab/makefile-hook-list-dependency-fix later to maint).

 * "git stash" by default triggers its "push" action, but its
   implementation also made "git stash -h" to show short help only for
   "git stash push", which has been corrected.
   (merge ca7990cea5 ab/do-not-limit-stash-help-to-push later to maint).

 * "git apply --3way" bypasses the attempt to do a three-way
   application in more cases to address the regression caused by the
   recent change to use direct application as a fallback.
   (merge 34d607032c jz/apply-3-corner-cases later to maint).

 * Fix performance-releated bug in "git subtree" (in contrib/).
   (merge 3ce8888fb4 jl/subtree-check-parents-argument-passing-fix later to maint).

 * Extend the guidance to choose the base commit to build your work
   on, and hint/nudge contributors to read others' changes.
   (merge fdfae830f8 jc/doc-submitting-patches-choice-of-base later to maint).

 * A corner case bug in the ort merge strategy has been corrected.
   (merge d30126c20d en/merge-ort-renorm-with-rename-delete-conflict-fix later to maint).

 * "git stash apply" forgot to attempt restoring untracked files when
   it failed to restore changes to tracked ones.
   (merge 71cade5a0b en/stash-df-fix later to maint).

 * Calling dynamically loaded functions on Windows has been corrected.
   (merge 4a9b204920 ma/windows-dynload-fix later to maint).

 * Some lockfile code called free() in signal-death code path, which
   has been corrected.
   (merge 58d4d7f1c5 ps/lockfile-cleanup-fix later to maint).

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
   (merge 74db416c9c cw/protocol-v2-doc-fix later to maint).
   (merge f9b2b6684d ja/doc-cleanup later to maint).

git: updated to 2.33.1

Git 2.33.1 Release Notes
========================

This primarily is to backport various fixes accumulated during the
development towards Git 2.34, the next feature release.


Fixes since v2.33
-----------------

 * The unicode character width table (used for output alignment) has
   been updated.

 * Input validation of "git pack-objects --stdin-packs" has been
   corrected.

 * Bugfix for common ancestor negotiation recently introduced in "git
   push" codepath.

 * "git pull" had various corner cases that were not well thought out
   around its --rebase backend, e.g. "git pull --ff-only" did not stop
   but went ahead and rebased when the history on other side is not a
   descendant of our history.  The series tries to fix them up.

 * "git apply" miscounted the bytes and failed to read to the end of
   binary hunks.

 * "git range-diff" code clean-up.

 * "git commit --fixup" now works with "--edit" again, after it was
   broken in v2.32.

 * Use upload-artifacts v1 (instead of v2) for 32-bit linux, as the
   new version has a blocker bug for that architecture.

 * Checking out all the paths from HEAD during the last conflicted
   step in "git rebase" and continuing would cause the step to be
   skipped (which is expected), but leaves MERGE_MSG file behind in
   $GIT_DIR and confuses the next "git commit", which has been
   corrected.

 * Various bugs in "git rebase -r" have been fixed.

 * mmap() imitation used to call xmalloc() that dies upon malloc()
   failure, which has been corrected to just return an error to the
   caller to be handled.

 * "git diff --relative" segfaulted and/or produced incorrect result
   when there are unmerged paths.

 * The delayed checkout code path in "git checkout" etc. were chatty
   even when --quiet and/or --no-progress options were given.

 * "git branch -D <branch>" used to refuse to remove a broken branch
   ref that points at a missing commit, which has been corrected.

 * Build update for Apple clang.

 * The parser for the "--nl" option of "git column" has been
   corrected.

 * "git upload-pack" which runs on the other side of "git fetch"
   forgot to take the ref namespaces into account when handling
   want-ref requests.

 * The sparse-index support can corrupt the index structure by storing
   a stale and/or uninitialized data, which has been corrected.

 * Buggy tests could damage repositories outside the throw-away test
   area we created.  We now by default export GIT_CEILING_DIRECTORIES
   to limit the damage from such a stray test.

 * Even when running "git send-email" without its own threaded
   discussion support, a threading related header in one message is
   carried over to the subsequent message to result in an unwanted
   threading, which has been corrected.

 * The output from "git fast-export", when its anonymization feature
   is in use, showed an annotated tag incorrectly.

 * Recent "diff -m" changes broke "gitk", which has been corrected.

 * "git maintenance" scheduler fix for macOS.

 * A pathname in an advice message has been made cut-and-paste ready.

 * The "git apply -3" code path learned not to bother the lower level
   merge machinery when the three-way merge can be trivially resolved
   without the content level merge.

 * The code that optionally creates the *.rev reverse index file has
   been optimized to avoid needless computation when it is not writing
   the file out.

 * "git range-diff -I... <range> <range>" segfaulted, which has been
   corrected.

 * The order in which various files that make up a single (conceptual)
   packfile has been reevaluated and straightened up.  This matters in
   correctness, as an incomplete set of files must not be shown to a
   running Git.

 * The "mode" word is useless in a call to open(2) that does not
   create a new file.  Such a call in the files backend of the ref
   subsystem has been cleaned up.

 * "git update-ref --stdin" failed to flush its output as needed,
   which potentially led the conversation to a deadlock.

 * When "git am --abort" fails to abort correctly, it still exited
   with exit status of 0, which has been corrected.

 * Correct nr and alloc members of strvec struct to be of type size_t.

 * "git stash", where the tentative change involves changing a
   directory to a file (or vice versa), was confused, which has been
   corrected.

 * "git clone" from a repository whose HEAD is unborn into a bare
   repository didn't follow the branch name the other side used, which
   is corrected.

 * "git cvsserver" had a long-standing bug in its authentication code,
   which has finally been corrected (it is unclear and is a separate
   question if anybody is seriously using it, though).

 * "git difftool --dir-diff" mishandled symbolic links.

 * Sensitive data in the HTTP trace were supposed to be redacted, but
   we failed to do so in HTTP/2 requests.

 * "make clean" has been updated to remove leftover .depend/
   directories, even when it is not told to use them to compute header
   dependencies.

 * Protocol v0 clients can get stuck parsing a malformed feature line.

Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.

git: updated to 2.33.0

Git 2.33 Release Notes
======================

Updates since Git 2.32
----------------------

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "git send-email" learned the "--sendmail-cmd" command line option
   and the "sendemail.sendmailCmd" configuration variable, which is a
   more sensible approach than the current way of repurposing the
   "smtp-server" that is meant to name the server to instead name the
   command to talk to the server.

 * The userdiff pattern for C# learned the token "record".

 * "git rev-list" learns to omit the "commit <object-name>" header
   lines from the output with the `--no-commit-header` option.

 * "git worktree add --lock" learned to record why the worktree is
   locked with a custom message.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The code to handle the "--format" option in "for-each-ref" and
   friends made too many string comparisons on %(atom)s used in the
   format string, which has been corrected by converting them into
   enum when the format string is parsed.

 * Use the hashfile API in the codepath that writes the index file to
   reduce code duplication.

 * Repeated rename detections in a sequence of mergy operations have
   been optimized out for the 'ort' merge strategy.

 * Preliminary clean-up of tests before the main reftable changes
   hits the codebase.

 * The backend for "diff -G/-S" has been updated to use pcre2 engine
   when available.

 * Use ".DELETE_ON_ERROR" pseudo target to simplify our Makefile.

 * Code cleanup around struct_type_init() functions.

 * "git send-email" optimization.

 * GitHub Actions / CI update.
   (merge 0dc787a9f2 js/ci-windows-update later to maint).

 * Object accesses in repositories with many alternate object store
   have been optimized.

 * "git log" has been optimized not to waste cycles to load ref
   decoration data that may not be needed.

 * Many "printf"-like helper functions we have have been annotated
   with __attribute__() to catch placeholder/parameter mismatches.

 * Tests that cover protocol bits have been updated and helpers
   used there have been consolidated.

 * The CI gained a new job to run "make sparse" check.

 * "git status" codepath learned to work with sparsely populated index
   without hydrating it fully.

 * A guideline for gender neutral documentation has been added.

 * Documentation on "git diff -l<n>" and diff.renameLimit have been
   updated, and the defaults for these limits have been raised.

 * The completion support used to offer alternate spelling of options
   that exist only for compatibility, which has been corrected.

 * "TEST_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY=there make test" failed to work, which has
   been corrected.

 * "git bundle" gained more test coverage.

 * "git read-tree" had a codepath where blobs are fetched one-by-one
   from the promisor remote, which has been corrected to fetch in bulk.

 * Rewrite of "git submodule" in C continues.

 * "git checkout" and "git commit" learn to work without unnecessarily
   expanding sparse indexes.


Fixes since v2.32
-----------------

 * We historically rejected a very short string as an author name
   while accepting a patch e-mail, which has been loosened.
   (merge 72ee47ceeb ef/mailinfo-short-name later to maint).

 * The parallel checkout codepath did not initialize object ID field
   used to talk to the worker processes in a futureproof way.

 * Rewrite code that triggers undefined behaviour warning.
   (merge aafa5df0df jn/size-t-casted-to-off-t-fix later to maint).

 * The description of "fast-forward" in the glossary has been updated.
   (merge e22f2daed0 ry/clarify-fast-forward-in-glossary later to maint).

 * Recent "git clone" left a temporary directory behind when the
   transport layer returned an failure.
   (merge 6aacb7d861 jk/clone-clean-upon-transport-error later to maint).

 * "git fetch" over protocol v2 left its side of the socket open after
   it finished speaking, which unnecessarily wasted the resource on
   the other side.
   (merge ae1a7eefff jk/fetch-pack-v2-half-close-early later to maint).

 * The command line completion (in contrib/) learned that "git diff"
   takes the "--anchored" option.
   (merge d1e7c2cac9 tb/complete-diff-anchored later to maint).

 * "git-svn" tests assumed that "locale -a", which is used to pick an
   available UTF-8 locale, is available everywhere.  A knob has been
   introduced to allow testers to specify a suitable locale to use.
   (merge 482c962de4 dd/svn-test-wo-locale-a later to maint).

 * Update "git subtree" to work better on Windows.
   (merge 77f37de39f js/subtree-on-windows-fix later to maint).

 * Remove multimail from contrib/
   (merge f74d11471f js/no-more-multimail later to maint).

 * Make the codebase MSAN clean.
   (merge 4dbc55e87d ah/uninitialized-reads-fix later to maint).

 * Work around inefficient glob substitution in older versions of bash
   by rewriting parts of a test.
   (merge eb87c6f559 jx/t6020-with-older-bash later to maint).

 * Avoid duplicated work while building reachability bitmaps.
   (merge aa9ad6fee5 jk/bitmap-tree-optim later to maint).

 * We broke "GIT_SKIP_TESTS=t?000" to skip certain tests in recent
   update, which got fixed.

 * The side-band demultiplexer that is used to display progress output
   from the remote end did not clear the line properly when the end of
   line hits at a packet boundary, which has been corrected.

 * Some test scripts assumed that readlink(1) was universally
   installed and available, which is not the case.
   (merge 7c0afdf23c jk/test-without-readlink-1 later to maint).

 * Recent update to completion script (in contrib/) broke those who
   use the __git_complete helper to define completion to their custom
   command.
   (merge cea232194d fw/complete-cmd-idx-fix later to maint).

 * Output from some of our tests were affected by the width of the
   terminal that they were run in, which has been corrected by
   exporting a fixed value in the COLUMNS environment.
   (merge c49a177bec ab/fix-columns-to-80-during-tests later to maint).

 * On Windows, mergetool has been taught to find kdiff3.exe just like
   it finds winmerge.exe.
   (merge 47eb4c6890 ms/mergetools-kdiff3-on-windows later to maint).

 * When we cannot figure out how wide the terminal is, we use a
   fallback value of 80 ourselves (which cannot be avoided), but when
   we run the pager, we export it in COLUMNS, which forces the pager
   to use the hardcoded value, even when the pager is perfectly
   capable to figure it out itself.  Stop exporting COLUMNS when we
   fall back on the hardcoded default value for our own use.
   (merge 9b6e2c8b98 js/stop-exporting-bogus-columns later to maint).

 * "git cat-file --batch-all-objects"" misbehaved when "--batch" is in
   use and did not ask for certain object traits.
   (merge ee02ac6164 zh/cat-file-batch-fix later to maint).

 * Some code and doc clarification around "git push".

 * The "union" conflict resultion variant misbehaved when used with
   binary merge driver.
   (merge 382b601acd jk/union-merge-binary later to maint).

 * Prevent "git p4" from failing to submit changes to binary file.
   (merge 54662d5958 dc/p4-binary-submit-fix later to maint).

 * "git grep --and -e foo" ought to have been diagnosed as an error
   but instead segfaulted, which has been corrected.
   (merge fe7fe62d8d rs/grep-parser-fix later to maint).

 * The merge code had funny interactions between content based rename
   detection and directory rename detection.
   (merge 3585d0ea23 en/merge-dir-rename-corner-case-fix later to maint).

 * When rebuilding the multi-pack index file reusing an existing one,
   we used to blindly trust the existing file and ended up carrying
   corrupted data into the updated file, which has been corrected.
   (merge f89ecf7988 tb/midx-use-checksum later to maint).

 * Update the location of system-side configuration file on Windows.
   (merge e355307692 js/gfw-system-config-loc-fix later to maint).

 * Code recently added to support common ancestry negotiation during
   "git push" did not sanity check its arguments carefully enough.
   (merge eff40457a4 ab/fetch-negotiate-segv-fix later to maint).

 * Update the documentation not to assume users are of certain gender
   and adds to guidelines to do so.
   (merge 46a237f42f ds/gender-neutral-doc later to maint).

 * "git commit --allow-empty-message" won't abort the operation upon
   an empty message, but the hint shown in the editor said otherwise.
   (merge 6f70f00b4f hj/commit-allow-empty-message later to maint).

 * The code that gives an error message in "git multi-pack-index" when
   no subcommand is given tried to print a NULL pointer as a strong,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge 88617d11f9 tb/reverse-midx later to maint).

 * CI update.
   (merge a066a90db6 js/ci-check-whitespace-updates later to maint).

 * Documentation fix for "git pull --rebase=no".
   (merge d3236becec fc/pull-no-rebase-merges-theirs-into-ours later to maint).

 * A race between repacking and using pack bitmaps has been corrected.
   (merge dc1daacdcc jk/check-pack-valid-before-opening-bitmap later to maint).

 * The local changes stashed by "git merge --autostash" were lost when
   the merge failed in certain ways, which has been corrected.

 * Windows rmdir() equivalent behaves differently from POSIX ones in
   that when used on a symbolic link that points at a directory, the
   target directory gets removed, which has been corrected.
   (merge 3e7d4888e5 tb/mingw-rmdir-symlink-to-directory later to maint).

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
   (merge bfe35a6165 ah/doc-describe later to maint).

PR 55225 from Benjamin Lorenz: git push not displaying username

Seems that the input code depends on a HAVE_DEV_TTY setting that
autoconf doesn't actually check. I guess Linux packagers set this
explicitly; we shall too. Otherwise it falls back to libc getpass()
for all input, which disables echo unconditionally.

git: updated to 2.31.1

Git 2.31.1 Release Notes
========================

Fixes since v2.31
-----------------

 * The fsmonitor interface read from its input without making sure
   there is something to read from.  This bug is new in 2.31
   timeframe.

 * The data structure used by fsmonitor interface was not properly
   duplicated during an in-core merge, leading to use-after-free etc.

 * "git bisect" reimplemented more in C during 2.30 timeframe did not
   take an annotated tag as a good/bad endpoint well.  This regression
   has been corrected.

 * Fix macros that can silently inject unintended null-statements.

 * CALLOC_ARRAY() macro replaces many uses of xcalloc().

 * Update insn in Makefile comments to run fuzz-all target.

 * Fix a corner case bug in "git mv" on case insensitive systems,
   which was introduced in 2.29 timeframe.

Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.


Git 2.31 Release Notes
======================

Updates since v2.30
-------------------

Backward incompatible and other important changes

 * The "pack-redundant" command, which has been left stale with almost
   unusable performance issues, now warns loudly when it gets used, as
   we no longer want to recommend its use (instead just "repack -d"
   instead).

 * The development community has adopted Contributor Covenant v2.0 to
   update from v1.4 that we have been using.

 * The support for deprecated PCRE1 library has been dropped.

 * Fixes for CVE-2021-21300 in Git 2.30.2 (and earlier) is included.


UI, Workflows & Features

 * The "--format=%(trailers)" mechanism gets enhanced to make it
   easier to design output for machine consumption.

 * When a user does not tell "git pull" to use rebase or merge, the
   command gives a loud message telling a user to choose between
   rebase or merge but creates a merge anyway, forcing users who would
   want to rebase to redo the operation.  Fix an early part of this
   problem by tightening the condition to give the message---there is
   no reason to stop or force the user to choose between rebase or
   merge if the history fast-forwards.

 * The configuration variable 'core.abbrev' can be set to 'no' to
   force no abbreviation regardless of the hash algorithm.

 * "git rev-parse" can be explicitly told to give output as absolute
   or relative path with the `--path-format=(absolute|relative)` option.

 * Bash completion (in contrib/) update to make it easier for
   end-users to add completion for their custom "git" subcommands.

 * "git maintenance" learned to drive scheduled maintenance on
   platforms whose native scheduling methods are not 'cron'.

 * After expiring a reflog and making a single commit, the reflog for
   the branch would record a single entry that knows both @{0} and
   @{1}, but we failed to answer "what commit were we on?", i.e. @{1}

 * "git bundle" learns "--stdin" option to read its refs from the
   standard input.  Also, it now does not lose refs whey they point
   at the same object.

 * "git log" learned a new "--diff-merges=<how>" option.

 * "git ls-files" can and does show multiple entries when the index is
   unmerged, which is a source for confusion unless -s/-u option is in
   use.  A new option --deduplicate has been introduced.

 * `git worktree list` now annotates worktrees as prunable, shows
   locked and prunable attributes in --porcelain mode, and gained
   a --verbose option.

 * "git clone" tries to locally check out the branch pointed at by
   HEAD of the remote repository after it is done, but the protocol
   did not convey the information necessary to do so when copying an
   empty repository.  The protocol v2 learned how to do so.

 * There are other ways than ".." for a single token to denote a
   "commit range", namely "<rev>^!" and "<rev>^-<n>", but "git
   range-diff" did not understand them.

 * The "git range-diff" command learned "--(left|right)-only" option
   to show only one side of the compared range.

 * "git mergetool" feeds three versions (base, local and remote) of
   a conflicted path unmodified.  The command learned to optionally
   prepare these files with unconflicted parts already resolved.

 * The .mailmap is documented to be read only from the root level of a
   working tree, but a stray file in a bare repository also was read
   by accident, which has been corrected.

 * "git maintenance" tool learned a new "pack-refs" maintenance task.

 * The error message given when a configuration variable that is
   expected to have a boolean value has been improved.

 * Signed commits and tags now allow verification of objects, whose
   two object names (one in SHA-1, the other in SHA-256) are both
   signed.

 * "git rev-list" command learned "--disk-usage" option.

 * "git {diff,log} --{skip,rotate}-to=<path>" allows the user to
   discard diff output for early paths or move them to the end of the
   output.

 * "git difftool" learned "--skip-to=<path>" option to restart an
   interrupted session from an arbitrary path.

 * "git grep" has been tweaked to be limited to the sparse checkout
   paths.

 * "git rebase --[no-]fork-point" gained a configuration variable
   rebase.forkPoint so that users do not have to keep specifying a
   non-default setting.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * A 3-year old test that was not testing anything useful has been
   corrected.

 * Retire more names with "sha1" in it.

 * The topological walk codepath is covered by new trace2 stats.

 * Update the Code-of-conduct to version 2.0 from the upstream (we've
   been using version 1.4).

 * "git mktag" validates its input using its own rules before writing
   a tag object---it has been updated to share the logic with "git
   fsck".

 * Two new ways to feed configuration variable-value pairs via
   environment variables have been introduced, and the way
   GIT_CONFIG_PARAMETERS encodes variable/value pairs has been tweaked
   to make it more robust.

 * Tests have been updated so that they do not to get affected by the
   name of the default branch "git init" creates.

 * "git fetch" learns to treat ref updates atomically in all-or-none
   fashion, just like "git push" does, with the new "--atomic" option.

 * The peel_ref() API has been replaced with peel_iterated_oid().

 * The .use_shell flag in struct child_process that is passed to
   run_command() API has been clarified with a bit more documentation.

 * Document, clean-up and optimize the code around the cache-tree
   extension in the index.

 * The ls-refs protocol operation has been optimized to narrow the
   sub-hierarchy of refs/ it walks to produce response.

 * When removing many branches and tags, the code used to do so one
   ref at a time.  There is another API it can use to delete multiple
   refs, and it makes quite a lot of performance difference when the
   refs are packed.

 * The "pack-objects" command needs to iterate over all the tags when
   automatic tag following is enabled, but it actually iterated over
   all refs and then discarded everything outside "refs/tags/"
   hierarchy, which was quite wasteful.

 * A perf script was made more portable.

 * Our setting of GitHub CI test jobs were a bit too eager to give up
   once there is even one failure found.  Tweak the knob to allow
   other jobs keep running even when we see a failure, so that we can
   find more failures in a single run.

 * We've carried compatibility codepaths for compilers without
   variadic macros for quite some time, but the world may be ready for
   them to be removed.  Force compilation failure on exotic platforms
   where variadic macros are not available to find out who screams in
   such a way that we can easily revert if it turns out that the world
   is not yet ready.

 * Code clean-up to ensure our use of hashtables using object names as
   keys use the "struct object_id" objects, not the raw hash values.

 * Lose the debugging aid that may have been useful in the past, but
   no longer is, in the "grep" codepaths.

 * Some pretty-format specifiers do not need the data in commit object
   (e.g. "%H"), but we were over-eager to load and parse it, which has
   been made even lazier.

 * Get rid of "GETTEXT_POISON" support altogether, which may or may
   not be controversial.

 * Introduce an on-disk file to record revindex for packdata, which
   traditionally was always created on the fly and only in-core.

 * The commit-graph learned to use corrected commit dates instead of
   the generation number to help topological revision traversal.

 * Piecemeal of rewrite of "git bisect" in C continues.

 * When a pager spawned by us exited, the trace log did not record its
   exit status correctly, which has been corrected.

 * Removal of GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON continues.

 * The code to implement "git merge-base --independent" was poorly
   done and was kept from the very beginning of the feature.

 * Preliminary changes to fsmonitor integration.

 * Performance improvements for rename detection.

 * The common code to deal with "chunked file format" that is shared
   by the multi-pack-index and commit-graph files have been factored
   out, to help codepaths for both filetypes to become more robust.

 * The approach to "fsck" the incoming objects in "index-pack" is
   attractive for performance reasons (we have them already in core,
   inflated and ready to be inspected), but fundamentally cannot be
   applied fully when we receive more than one pack stream, as a tree
   object in one pack may refer to a blob object in another pack as
   ".gitmodules", when we want to inspect blobs that are used as
   ".gitmodules" file, for example.  Teach "index-pack" to emit
   objects that must be inspected later and check them in the calling
   "fetch-pack" process.

 * The logic to handle "trailer" related placeholders in the
   "--format=" mechanisms in the "log" family and "for-each-ref"
   family is getting unified.

 * Raise the buffer size used when writing the index file out from
   (obviously too small) 8kB to (clearly sufficiently large) 128kB.

 * It is reported that open() on some platforms (e.g. macOS Big Sur)
   can return EINTR even though our timers are set up with SA_RESTART.
   A workaround has been implemented and enabled for macOS to rerun
   open() transparently from the caller when this happens.


Fixes since v2.30
-----------------

 * Diagnose command line error of "git rebase" early.

 * Clean up option descriptions in "git cmd --help".

 * "git stash" did not work well in a sparsely checked out working
   tree.

 * Some tests expect that "ls -l" output has either '-' or 'x' for
   group executable bit, but setgid bit can be inherited from parent
   directory and make these fields 'S' or 's' instead, causing test
   failures.

 * "git for-each-repo --config=<var> <cmd>" should not run <cmd> for
   any repository when the configuration variable <var> is not defined
   even once.

 * Fix 2.29 regression where "git mergetool --tool-help" fails to list
   all the available tools.

 * Fix for procedure to building CI test environment for mac.

 * The implementation of "git branch --sort" wrt the detached HEAD
   display has always been hacky, which has been cleaned up.

 * Newline characters in the host and path part of git:// URL are
   now forbidden.

 * "git diff" showed a submodule working tree with untracked cruft as
   "Submodule commit <objectname>-dirty", but a natural expectation is
   that the "-dirty" indicator would align with "git describe --dirty",
   which does not consider having untracked files in the working tree
   as source of dirtiness.  The inconsistency has been fixed.

 * When more than one commit with the same patch ID appears on one
   side, "git log --cherry-pick A...B" did not exclude them all when a
   commit with the same patch ID appears on the other side.  Now it
   does.

 * Documentation for "git fsck" lost stale bits that has become
   incorrect.

 * Doc fix for packfile URI feature.

 * When "git rebase -i" processes "fixup" insn, there is no reason to
   clean up the commit log message, but we did the usual stripspace
   processing.  This has been corrected.
   (merge f7d42ceec5 js/rebase-i-commit-cleanup-fix later to maint).

 * Fix in passing custom args from "git clone" to "upload-pack" on the
   other side.
   (merge ad6b5fefbd jv/upload-pack-filter-spec-quotefix later to maint).

 * The command line completion (in contrib/) completed "git branch -d"
   with branch names, but "git branch -D" offered tagnames in addition,
   which has been corrected.  "git branch -M" had the same problem.
   (merge 27dc071b9a jk/complete-branch-force-delete later to maint).

 * When commands are started from a subdirectory, they may have to
   compare the path to the subdirectory (called prefix and found out
   from $(pwd)) with the tracked paths.  On macOS, $(pwd) and
   readdir() yield decomposed path, while the tracked paths are
   usually normalized to the precomposed form, causing mismatch.  This
   has been fixed by taking the same approach used to normalize the
   command line arguments.
   (merge 5c327502db tb/precompose-prefix-too later to maint).

 * Even though invocations of "die()" were logged to the trace2
   system, "BUG()"s were not, which has been corrected.
   (merge 0a9dde4a04 jt/trace2-BUG later to maint).

 * "git grep --untracked" is meant to be "let's ALSO find in these
   files on the filesystem" when looking for matches in the working
   tree files, and does not make any sense if the primary search is
   done against the index, or the tree objects.  The "--cached" and
   "--untracked" options have been marked as mutually incompatible.
   (merge 0c5d83b248 mt/grep-cached-untracked later to maint).

 * Fix "git fsck --name-objects" which apparently has not been used by
   anybody who is motivated enough to report breakage.
   (merge e89f89361c js/fsck-name-objects-fix later to maint).

 * Avoid individual tests in t5411 from getting affected by each other
   by forcing them to use separate output files during the test.
   (merge 822ee894f6 jx/t5411-unique-filenames later to maint).

 * Test to make sure "git rev-parse one-thing one-thing" gives
   the same thing twice (when one-thing is --since=X).
   (merge a5cdca4520 ew/rev-parse-since-test later to maint).

 * When certain features (e.g. grafts) used in the repository are
   incompatible with the use of the commit-graph, we used to silently
   turned commit-graph off; we now tell the user what we are doing.
   (merge c85eec7fc3 js/commit-graph-warning later to maint).

 * Objects that lost references can be pruned away, even when they
   have notes attached to it (and these notes will become dangling,
   which in turn can be pruned with "git notes prune").  This has been
   clarified in the documentation.
   (merge fa9ab027ba mz/doc-notes-are-not-anchors later to maint).

 * The error codepath around the "--temp/--prefix" feature of "git
   checkout-index" has been improved.
   (merge 3f7ba60350 mt/checkout-index-corner-cases later to maint).

 * The "git maintenance register" command had trouble registering bare
   repositories, which had been corrected.

 * A handful of multi-word configuration variable names in
   documentation that are spelled in all lowercase have been corrected
   to use the more canonical camelCase.
   (merge 7dd0eaa39c dl/doc-config-camelcase later to maint).

 * "git push $there --delete ''" should have been diagnosed as an
   error, but instead turned into a matching push, which has been
   corrected.
   (merge 20e416409f jc/push-delete-nothing later to maint).

 * Test script modernization.
   (merge 488acf15df sv/t7001-modernize later to maint).

 * An under-allocation for the untracked cache data has been corrected.
   (merge 6347d649bc jh/untracked-cache-fix later to maint).

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
   (merge e3f5da7e60 sg/t7800-difftool-robustify later to maint).
   (merge 9d336655ba js/doc-proto-v2-response-end later to maint).

git: updated to 2.29.2

Git v2.29.2 Release Notes
=========================

This release is primarily to fix brown-paper-bag breakages in the
2.29.0 release.

Fixes since v2.29.1
-------------------

 * In 2.29, "--committer-date-is-author-date" option of "rebase" and
   "am" subcommands lost the e-mail address by mistake, which has been
   corrected.

Git v2.29.1 Release Notes
=========================

This is to fix the build procedure change in 2.28 where we failed to
install a few programs that should be installed in /usr/bin (namely,
receive-pack, upload-archive and upload-pack) when the non-default
SKIP_DASHED_BUILT_INS installation option is in effect.

A minor glitch in a non-default installation may usually not deserve
a hotfix, but I know Git for Windows ship binaries built with this
option, so let's make an exception.


Git 2.29 Release Notes
======================

Updates since v2.28
-------------------

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "git help log" has been enhanced by sharing more material from the
   documentation for the underlying "git rev-list" command.

 * "git for-each-ref --format=<>" learned %(contents:size).

 * "git merge" learned to selectively omit " into <branch>" at the end
   of the title of default merge message with merge.suppressDest
   configuration.

 * The component to respond to "git fetch" request is made more
   configurable to selectively allow or reject object filtering
   specification used for partial cloning.

 * Stop when "sendmail.*" configuration variables are defined, which
   could be a mistaken attempt to define "sendemail.*" variables.

 * The existing backends for "git mergetool" based on variants of vim
   have been refactored and then support for "nvim" has been added.

 * "git bisect" learns the "--first-parent" option to find the first
   breakage along the first-parent chain.

 * "git log --first-parent -p" showed patches only for single-parent
   commits on the first-parent chain; the "--first-parent" option has
   been made to imply "-m".  Use "--no-diff-merges" to restore the
   previous behaviour to omit patches for merge commits.

 * The commit labels used to explain each side of conflicted hunks
   placed by the sequencer machinery have been made more readable by
   humans.

 * The "--batch-size" option of "git multi-pack-index repack" command
   is now used to specify that very small packfiles are collected into
   one until the total size roughly exceeds it.

 * The recent addition of SHA-256 support is marked as experimental in
   the documentation.

 * "git fetch" learned --no-write-fetch-head option to avoid writing
   the FETCH_HEAD file.

 * Command line completion (in contrib/) usually omits redundant,
   deprecated and/or dangerous options from its output; it learned to
   optionally include all of them.

 * The output from the "diff" family of the commands had abbreviated
   object names of blobs involved in the patch, but its length was not
   affected by the --abbrev option.  Now it is.

 * "git worktree" gained a "repair" subcommand to help users recover
   after moving the worktrees or repository manually without telling
   Git.  Also, "git init --separate-git-dir" no longer corrupts
   administrative data related to linked worktrees.

 * The "--format=" option to the "for-each-ref" command and friends
   learned a few more tricks, e.g. the ":short" suffix that applies to
   "objectname" now also can be used for "parent", "tree", etc.

 * "git worktree add" learns that the "-d" is a synonym to "--detach"
   option to create a new worktree without being on a branch.

 * "format-patch --range-diff=<prev> <origin>..HEAD" has been taught
   not to ignore <origin> when <prev> is a single version.

 * "add -p" now allows editing paths that were only added in intent.

 * The 'meld' backend of the "git mergetool" learned to give the
   underlying 'meld' the '--auto-merge' option, which would help
   reduce the amount of text that requires manual merging.

 * "git for-each-ref" and friends that list refs used to allow only
   one --merged or --no-merged to filter them; they learned to take
   combination of both kind of filtering.

 * "git maintenance", a "git gc"'s big brother, has been introduced to
   take care of more repository maintenance tasks, not limited to the
   object database cleaning.

 * "git receive-pack" that accepts requests by "git push" learned to
   outsource most of the ref updates to the new "proc-receive" hook.

 * "git push" that wants to be atomic and wants to send push
   certificate learned not to prepare and sign the push certificate
   when it fails the local check (hence due to atomicity it is known
   that no certificate is needed).

 * "git commit-graph write" learned to limit the number of bloom
   filters that are computed from scratch with the --max-new-filters
   option.

 * The transport protocol v2 has become the default again.

 * The installation procedure learned to optionally omit "git-foo"
   executable files for each 'foo' built-in subcommand, which are only
   required by old timers that still rely on the age old promise that
   prepending "git --exec-path" output to PATH early in their script
   will keep the "git-foo" calls they wrote working.

 * The command line completion (in contrib/) learned that "git restore
   -s <TAB>" is often followed by a refname.

 * "git shortlog" has been taught to group commits by the contents of
   the trailer lines, like "Reviewed-by:", "Coauthored-by:", etc.

 * "git archive" learns the "--add-file" option to include untracked
   files into a snapshot from a tree-ish.

 * "git fetch" and "git push" support negative refspecs.

 * "git format-patch" learns to take "whenAble" as a possible value
   for the format.useAutoBase configuration variable to become no-op
   when the  automatically computed base does not make sense.

 * Credential helpers are now allowed to terminate lines with CRLF
   line ending, as well as LF line ending.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The changed-path Bloom filter is improved using ideas from an
   independent implementation.

 * Updates to the changed-paths bloom filter.

 * The test framework has been updated so that most tests will run
   with predictable (artificial) timestamps.

 * Preliminary clean-up of the refs API in preparation for adding a
   new refs backend "reftable".

 * Dev support to limit the use of test_must_fail to only git commands.

 * While packing many objects in a repository with a promissor remote,
   lazily fetching missing objects from the promissor remote one by
   one may be inefficient---the code now attempts to fetch all the
   missing objects in batch (obviously this won't work for a lazy
   clone that lazily fetches tree objects as you cannot even enumerate
   what blobs are missing until you learn which trees are missing).

 * The pretend-object mechanism checks if the given object already
   exists in the object store before deciding to keep the data
   in-core, but the check would have triggered lazy fetching of such
   an object from a promissor remote.

 * The argv_array API is useful for not just managing argv but any
   "vector" (NULL-terminated array) of strings, and has seen adoption
   to a certain degree.  It has been renamed to "strvec" to reduce the
   barrier to adoption.

 * The final leg of SHA-256 transition plus doc updates.  Note that
   there is no interoperability between SHA-1 and SHA-256
   repositories yet.

 * CMake support to build with MSVC for Windows bypassing the Makefile.

 * A new helper function has_object() has been introduced to make it
   easier to mark object existence checks that do and don't want to
   trigger lazy fetches, and a few such checks are converted using it.

 * A no-op replacement function implemented as a C preprocessor macro
   does not perform as good a job as one implemented as a "static
   inline" function in catching errors in parameters; replace the
   former with the latter in <git-compat-util.h> header.

 * Test framework update.
   (merge d572f52a64 es/test-cmp-typocatcher later to maint).

 * Updates to "git merge" tests, in preparation for a new merge
   strategy backend.

 * midx and commit-graph files now use the byte defined in their file
   format specification for identifying the hash function used for
   object names.

 * The FETCH_HEAD is now always read from the filesystem regardless of
   the ref backend in use, as its format is much richer than the
   normal refs, and written directly by "git fetch" as a plain file..

 * An unused binary has been discarded, and and a bunch of commands
   have been turned into into built-in.

 * A handful of places in in-tree code still relied on being able to
   execute the git subcommands, especially built-ins, in "git-foo"
   form, which have been corrected.

 * When a packfile is removed by "git repack", multi-pack-index gets
   cleared; the code was taught to do so less aggressively by first
   checking if the midx actually refers to a pack that no longer
   exists.

 * Internal API clean-up to handle two options "diff-index" and "log"
   have, which happen to share the same short form, more sensibly.

 * The "add -i/-p" machinery has been written in C but it is not used
   by default yet.  It is made default to those who are participating
   in feature.experimental experiment.

 * Allow maintainers to tweak $(TAR) invocations done while making
   distribution tarballs.

 * "git index-pack" learned to resolve deltified objects with greater
   parallelism.

 * "diff-highlight" (in contrib/) had a logic to flush its output upon
   seeing a blank line but the way it detected a blank line was broken.

 * The logic to skip testing on the tagged commit and the tag itself
   was not quite consistent which led to failure of Windows test
   tasks.  It has been revamped to consistently skip revisions that
   have already been tested, based on the tree object of the revision.


Fixes since v2.28
-----------------

 * The "mediawiki" remote backend which lives in contrib/mw-to-git/
   and is not built with git by default, had an RCE bug allowing a
   malicious MediaWiki server operator to inject arbitrary commands
   for execution by a cloning client. This has been fixed.

   The bug was discovered and reported by Joern Schneeweisz of GitLab
   to the git-security mailing list. Its practical impact due to the
   obscurity of git-remote-mediawiki was deemed small enough to forgo
   a dedicated security release.

 * "git clone --separate-git-dir=$elsewhere" used to stomp on the
   contents of the existing directory $elsewhere, which has been
   taught to fail when $elsewhere is not an empty directory.
   (merge dfaa209a79 bw/fail-cloning-into-non-empty later to maint).

 * With the base fix to 2.27 regresion, any new extensions in a v0
   repository would still be silently honored, which is not quite
   right.  Instead, complain and die loudly.
   (merge ec91ffca04 jk/reject-newer-extensions-in-v0 later to maint).

 * Fetching from a lazily cloned repository resulted at the server
   side in attempts to lazy fetch objects that the client side has,
   many of which will not be available from the third-party anyway.
   (merge 77aa0941ce jt/avoid-lazy-fetching-upon-have-check later to maint).

 * Fix to an ancient bug caused by an over-eager attempt for
   optimization.
   (merge a98f7fb366 rs/add-index-entry-optim-fix later to maint).

 * Pushing a ref whose name contains non-ASCII character with the
   "--force-with-lease" option did not work over smart HTTP protocol,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge cd85b447bf bc/push-cas-cquoted-refname later to maint).

 * "git mv src dst", when src is an unmerged path, errored out
   correctly but with an incorrect error message to claim that src is
   not tracked, which has been clarified.
   (merge 9b906af657 ct/mv-unmerged-path-error later to maint).

 * Fix to a regression introduced during 2.27 cycle.
   (merge cada7308ad en/fill-directory-exponential later to maint).

 * Command line completion (in contrib/) update.
   (merge 688b87c81b mp/complete-show-color-moved later to maint).

 * All "mergy" operations that internally use the merge-recursive
   machinery should honor the merge.renormalize configuration, but
   many of them didn't.

 * Doc cleanup around "worktree".
   (merge dc9c144be5 es/worktree-doc-cleanups later to maint).

 * The "git blame --first-parent" option was not documented, but now
   it is.
   (merge 11bc12ae1e rp/blame-first-parent-doc later to maint).

 * The logic to find the ref transaction hook script attempted to
   cache the path to the found hook without realizing that it needed
   to keep a copied value, as the API it used returned a transitory
   buffer space.  This has been corrected.
   (merge 09b2aa30c9 ps/ref-transaction-hook later to maint).

 * Recent versions of "git diff-files" shows a diff between the index
   and the working tree for "intent-to-add" paths as a "new file"
   patch; "git apply --cached" should be able to take "git diff-files"
   and should act as an equivalent to "git add" for the path, but the
   command failed to do so for such a path.
   (merge 4c025c667e rp/apply-cached-with-i-t-a later to maint).

 * "git diff [<tree-ish>] $path" for a $path that is marked with i-t-a
   bit was not showing the mode bits from the working tree.
   (merge cb0dd22b82 rp/ita-diff-modefix later to maint).

 * Ring buffer with size 4 used for bin-hex translation resulted in a
   wrong object name in the sequencer's todo output, which has been
   corrected.
   (merge 5da69c0dac ak/sequencer-fix-find-uniq-abbrev later to maint).

 * When given more than one target line ranges, "git blame -La,b
   -Lc,d" was over-eager to coalesce groups of original lines and
   showed incorrect results, which has been corrected.
   (merge c2ebaa27d6 jk/blame-coalesce-fix later to maint).

 * The regexp to identify the function boundary for FORTRAN programs
   has been updated.
   (merge 75c3b6b2e8 pb/userdiff-fortran-update later to maint).

 * A few end-user facing messages have been updated to be
   hash-algorithm agnostic.
   (merge 4279000d3e jc/object-names-are-not-sha-1 later to maint).

 * "unlink" emulation on MinGW has been optimized.
   (merge 680e0b4524 jh/mingw-unlink later to maint).

 * The purpose of "git init --separate-git-dir" is to initialize a
   new project with the repository separate from the working tree,
   or, in the case of an existing project, to move the repository
   (the .git/ directory) out of the working tree. It does not make
   sense to use --separate-git-dir with a bare repository for which
   there is no working tree, so disallow its use with bare
   repositories.
   (merge ccf236a23a es/init-no-separate-git-dir-in-bare later to maint).

 * "ls-files -o" mishandled the top-level directory of another git
   working tree that hangs in the current git working tree.
   (merge ab282aa548 en/dir-nonbare-embedded later to maint).

 * Fix some incorrect UNLEAK() annotations.
   (merge 3e19816dc0 jk/unleak-fixes later to maint).

 * Use more buffered I/O where we used to call many small write(2)s.
   (merge a698d67b08 rs/more-buffered-io later to maint).

 * The patch-id computation did not ignore the "incomplete last line"
   marker like whitespaces.
   (merge 82a62015a7 rs/patch-id-with-incomplete-line later to maint).

 * Updates into a lazy/partial clone with a submodule did not work
   well with transfer.fsckobjects set.

 * The parser for "git for-each-ref --format=..." was too loose when
   parsing the "%(trailers...)" atom, and forgot that "trailers" and
   "trailers:<modifiers>" are the only two allowed forms, which has
   been corrected.
   (merge 2c22e102f8 hv/ref-filter-trailers-atom-parsing-fix later to maint).

 * Long ago, we decided to use 3 threads by default when running the
   index-pack task in parallel, which has been adjusted a bit upwards.
   (merge fbff95b67f jk/index-pack-w-more-threads later to maint).

 * "git restore/checkout --no-overlay" with wildcarded pathspec
   mistakenly removed matching paths in subdirectories, which has been
   corrected.
   (merge bfda204ade rs/checkout-no-overlay-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * The description of --cached/--index options in "git apply --help"
   has been updated.
   (merge d064702be3 rp/apply-cached-doc later to maint).

 * Feeding "$ZERO_OID" to "git log --ignore-missing --stdin", and
   running "git log --ignore-missing $ZERO_OID" fell back to start
   digging from HEAD; it has been corrected to become a no-op, like
   "git log --tags=no-tag-matches-this-pattern" does.
   (merge 04a0e98515 jk/rev-input-given-fix later to maint).

 * Various callers of run_command API have been modernized.
   (merge afbdba391e jc/run-command-use-embedded-args later to maint).

 * List of options offered and accepted by "git add -i/-p" were
   inconsistent, which have been corrected.
   (merge ce910287e7 pw/add-p-allowed-options-fix later to maint).

 * "git diff --stat -w" showed 0-line changes for paths whose changes
   were only whitespaces, which was not intuitive.  We now omit such
   paths from the stat output.
   (merge 1cf3d5db9b mr/diff-hide-stat-wo-textual-change later to maint).

 * It was possible for xrealloc() to send a non-NULL pointer that has
   been freed, which has been fixed.
   (merge 6479ea4a8a jk/xrealloc-avoid-use-after-free later to maint).

 * "git status" has trouble showing where it came from by interpreting
   reflog entries that record certain events, e.g. "checkout @{u}", and
   gives a hard/fatal error.  Even though it inherently is impossible
   to give a correct answer because the reflog entries lose some
   information (e.g. "@{u}" does not record what branch the user was
   on hence which branch 'the upstream' needs to be computed, and even
   if the record were available, the relationship between branches may
   have changed), at least hide the error and allow "status" to show its
   output.

 * "git status --short" quoted a path with SP in it when tracked, but
   not those that are untracked, ignored or unmerged.  They are all
   shown quoted consistently.

 * "git diff/show" on a change that involves a submodule used to read
   the information on commits in the submodule from a wrong repository
   and gave a wrong information when the commit-graph is involved.
   (merge 85a1ec2c32 mf/submodule-summary-with-correct-repository later to maint).

 * Unlike "git config --local", "git config --worktree" did not fail
   early and cleanly when started outside a git repository.
   (merge 378fe5fc3d mt/config-fail-nongit-early later to maint).

 * There is a logic to estimate how many objects are in the
   repository, which is meant to run once per process invocation, but
   it ran every time the estimated value was requested.
   (merge 67bb65de5d jk/dont-count-existing-objects-twice later to maint).

 * "git remote set-head" that failed still said something that hints
   the operation went through, which was misleading.
   (merge 5a07c6c3c2 cs/don-t-pretend-a-failed-remote-set-head-succeeded later to maint).

 * "git fetch --all --ipv4/--ipv6" forgot to pass the protocol options
   to instances of the "git fetch" that talk to individual remotes,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge 4e735c1326 ar/fetch-ipversion-in-all later to maint).

 * The "unshelve" subcommand of "git p4" incorrectly used commit^N
   where it meant to say commit~N to name the Nth generation
   ancestor, which has been corrected.
   (merge 0acbf5997f ld/p4-unshelve-fix later to maint).

 * "git clone" that clones from SHA-1 repository, while
   GIT_DEFAULT_HASH set to use SHA-256 already, resulted in an
   unusable repository that half-claims to be SHA-256 repository
   with SHA-1 objects and refs.  This has been corrected.

 * Adjust sample hooks for hash algorithm other than SHA-1.
   (merge d8d3d632f4 dl/zero-oid-in-hooks later to maint).

 * "git range-diff" showed incorrect diffstat, which has been
   corrected.

 * Earlier we taught "git pull" to warn when the user does not say the
   histories need to be merged, rebased or accepts only fast-
   forwarding, but the warning triggered for those who have set the
   pull.ff configuration variable.
   (merge 54200cef86 ah/pull later to maint).

 * Compilation fix around type punning.
   (merge 176380fd11 jk/drop-unaligned-loads later to maint).

 * "git blame --ignore-rev/--ignore-revs-file" failed to validate
   their input are valid revision, and failed to take into account
   that the user may want to give an annotated tag instead of a
   commit, which has been corrected.
   (merge 610e2b9240 jc/blame-ignore-fix later to maint).

 * "git bisect start X Y", when X and Y are not valid committish
   object names, should take X and Y as pathspec, but didn't.
   (merge 73c6de06af cc/bisect-start-fix later to maint).

 * The explanation of the "scissors line" has been clarified.
   (merge 287416dba6 eg/mailinfo-doc-scissors later to maint).

 * A race that leads to an access to a free'd data was corrected in
   the codepath that reads pack files.
   (merge bda959c476 mt/delta-base-cache-races later to maint).

 * in_merge_bases_many(), a way to see if a commit is reachable from
   any commit in a set of commits, was totally broken when the
   commit-graph feature was in use, which has been corrected.
   (merge 8791bf1841 ds/in-merge-bases-many-optim-bug later to maint).

 * "git submodule update --quiet" did not squelch underlying "rebase"
   and "pull" commands.
   (merge 3ad0401e9e td/submodule-update-quiet later to maint).

 * The lazy fetching done internally to make missing objects available
   in a partial clone incorrectly made permanent damage to the partial
   clone filter in the repository, which has been corrected.

 * "log -c --find-object=X" did not work well to find a merge that
   involves a change to an object X from only one parent.
   (merge 957876f17d jk/diff-cc-oidfind-fix later to maint).

git: updated to 2.27.0

Git 2.27 Release Notes
======================

Updates since v2.26
-------------------

Backward compatibility notes

 * When "git describe C" finds that commit C is pointed by a signed or
   annotated tag, which records T as its tagname in the object, the
   command gives T as its answer.  Even if the user renames or moves
   such a tag from its natural location in the "refs/tags/" hierarchy,
   "git describe C" would still give T as the answer, but in such a
   case "git show T^0" would no longer work as expected.  There may be
   nothing at "refs/tags/T" or even worse there may be a different tag
   instead.

   Starting from this version, "git describe" will always use the
   "long" version, as if the "--long" option were given, when giving
   its output based on such a misplaced tag to work around the problem.

 * "git pull" issues a warning message until the pull.rebase
   configuration variable is explicitly given, which some existing
   users may find annoying---those who prefer not to rebase need to
   set the variable to false to squelch the warning.

 * The transport protocol version 2, which was promoted to the default
   in Git 2.26 release, turned out to have some remaining rough edges,
   so it has been demoted from the default.


UI, Workflows & Features

 * A handful of options to configure SSL when talking to proxies have
   been added.

 * Smudge/clean conversion filters are now given more information
   (e.g. the object of the tree-ish in which the blob being converted
   appears, in addition to its path, which has already been given).

 * When "git describe C" finds an annotated tag with tagname A to be
   the best name to explain commit C, and the tag is stored in a
   "wrong" place in the refs/tags hierarchy, e.g. refs/tags/B, the
   command gave a warning message but used A (not B) to describe C.
   If C is exactly at the tag, the describe output would be "A", but
   "git rev-parse A^0" would not be equal as "git rev-parse C^0".  The
   behavior of the command has been changed to use the "long" form
   i.e. A-0-gOBJECTNAME, which is correctly interpreted by rev-parse.

 * "git pull" learned to warn when no pull.rebase configuration
   exists, and neither --[no-]rebase nor --ff-only is given (which
   would result a merge).

 * "git p4" learned four new hooks and also "--no-verify" option to
   bypass them (and the existing "p4-pre-submit" hook).

 * "git pull" shares many options with underlying "git fetch", but
   some of them were not documented and some of those that would make
   sense to pass down were not passed down.

 * "git rebase" learned the "--no-gpg-sign" option to countermand
   commit.gpgSign the user may have.

 * The output from "git format-patch" uses RFC 2047 encoding for
   non-ASCII letters on From: and Subject: headers, so that it can
   directly be fed to e-mail programs.  A new option has been added
   to produce these headers in raw.

 * "git log" learned "--show-pulls" that helps pathspec limited
   history views; a merge commit that takes the whole change from a
   side branch, which is normally omitted from the output, is shown
   in addition to the commits that introduce real changes.

 * The interactive input from various codepaths are consolidated and
   any prompt possibly issued earlier are fflush()ed before we read.

 * Allow "git rebase" to reapply all local commits, even if the may be
   already in the upstream, without checking first.

 * The 'pack.useSparse' configuration variable now defaults to 'true',
   enabling an optimization that has been experimental since Git 2.21.

 * "git rebase" happens to call some hooks meant for "checkout" and
   "commit" by this was not a designed behaviour than historical
   accident.  This has been documented.

 * "git merge" learns the "--autostash" option.

 * "sparse-checkout" UI improvements.

 * "git update-ref --stdin" learned a handful of new verbs to let the
   user control ref update transactions more explicitly, which helps
   as an ingredient to implement two-phase commit-style atomic
   ref-updates across multiple repositories.

 * "git commit-graph write" learned different ways to write out split
   files.

 * Introduce an extension to the commit-graph to make it efficient to
   check for the paths that were modified at each commit using Bloom
   filters.

 * The approxidate parser learns to parse seconds with fraction and
   ignore fractional part.

 * The userdiff patterns for Markdown documents have been added.

 * The sparse-checkout patterns have been forbidden from excluding all
   paths, leaving an empty working tree, for a long time.  This
   limitation has been lifted.

 * "git restore --staged --worktree" now defaults to take the contents
   out of "HEAD", instead of erring out.

 * "git p4" learned to recover from a (broken) state where a directory
   and a file are recorded at the same path in the Perforce repository
   the same way as their clients do.

 * "git multi-pack-index repack" has been taught to honor some
   repack.* configuration variables.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The advise API has been revamped to allow more systematic enumeration of
   advice knobs in the future.

 * SHA-256 transition continues.

 * The code to interface with GnuPG has been refactored.

 * "git stash" has kept an escape hatch to use the scripted version
   for a few releases, which got stale.  It has been removed.

 * Enable tests that require GnuPG on Windows.

 * Minor test usability improvement.

 * Trace2 enhancement to allow logging of the environment variables.

 * Test clean-up continues.

 * Perf-test update.

 * A Windows-specific test element has been made more robust against
   misuse from both user's environment and programmer's errors.

 * Various tests have been updated to work around issues found with
   shell utilities that come with busybox etc.

 * The config API made mixed uses of int and size_t types to represent
   length of various pieces of text it parsed, which has been updated
   to use the correct type (i.e. size_t) throughout.

 * The "--decorate-refs" and "--decorate-refs-exclude" options "git
   log" takes have learned a companion configuration variable
   log.excludeDecoration that sits at the lowest priority in the
   family.

 * A new CI job to build and run test suite on linux with musl libc
   has been added.

 * Update the CI configuration to use GitHub Actions, retiring the one
   based on Azure Pipelines.

 * The directory traversal code had redundant recursive calls which
   made its performance characteristics exponential with respect to
   the depth of the tree, which was corrected.

 * "git blame" learns to take advantage of the "changed-paths" Bloom
   filter stored in the commit-graph file.

 * The "bugreport" tool has been added.

 * The object walk with object filter "--filter=tree:0" can now take
   advantage of the pack bitmap when available.

 * Instead of always building all branches at GitHub via Actions,
   users can specify which branches to build.

 * Codepaths that show progress meter have been taught to also use the
   start_progress() and the stop_progress() calls as a "region" to be
   traced.

 * Instead of downloading Windows SDK for CI jobs for windows builds
   from an external site (wingit.blob.core.windows.net), use the one
   created in the windows-build job, to work around quota issues at
   the external site.

git: updated to 2.52.2

Git 2.25.2 Release Notes
========================

Fixes since v2.25.1
-------------------

 * Minor bugfixes to "git add -i" that has recently been rewritten in C.

 * An earlier update to show the location of working tree in the error
   message did not consider the possibility that a git command may be
   run in a bare repository, which has been corrected.

 * The "--recurse-submodules" option of various subcommands did not
   work well when run in an alternate worktree, which has been
   corrected.

 * Running "git rm" on a submodule failed unnecessarily when
   .gitmodules is only cache-dirty, which has been corrected.

 * "git rebase -i" identifies existing commits in its todo file with
   their abbreviated object name, which could become ambigous as it
   goes to create new commits, and has a mechanism to avoid ambiguity
   in the main part of its execution.  A few other cases however were
   not covered by the protection against ambiguity, which has been
   corrected.

 * The index-pack code now diagnoses a bad input packstream that
   records the same object twice when it is used as delta base; the
   code used to declare a software bug when encountering such an
   input, but it is an input error.

 * The code to automatically shrink the fan-out in the notes tree had
   an off-by-one bug, which has been killed.

 * "git check-ignore" did not work when the given path is explicitly
   marked as not ignored with a negative entry in the .gitignore file.

 * The merge-recursive machinery failed to refresh the cache entry for
   a merge result in a couple of places, resulting in an unnecessary
   merge failure, which has been fixed.

 * Fix for a bug revealed by a recent change to make the protocol v2
   the default.

 * "git merge signed-tag" while lacking the public key started to say
   "No signature", which was utterly wrong.  This regression has been
   reverted.

 * MinGW's poll() emulation has been improved.

 * "git show" and others gave an object name in raw format in its
   error output, which has been corrected to give it in hex.

 * Both "git ls-remote -h" and "git grep -h" give short usage help,
   like any other Git subcommand, but it is not unreasonable to expect
   that the former would behave the same as "git ls-remote --head"
   (there is no other sensible behaviour for the latter).  The
   documentation has been updated in an attempt to clarify this.

Also contains various documentation updates, code clean-ups and minor fixups.

git: updated to 2.25.0

Git 2.25 Release Notes
======================

Updates since v2.24
-------------------

Backward compatibility notes


UI, Workflows & Features

 * A tutorial on object enumeration has been added.

 * The branch description ("git branch --edit-description") has been
   used to fill the body of the cover letters by the format-patch
   command; this has been enhanced so that the subject can also be
   filled.

 * "git rebase --preserve-merges" has been marked as deprecated; this
   release stops advertising it in the "git rebase -h" output.

 * The code to generate multi-pack index learned to show (or not to
   show) progress indicators.

 * "git apply --3way" learned to honor merge.conflictStyle
   configuration variable, like merges would.

 * The custom format for "git log --format=<format>" learned the l/L
   placeholder that is similar to e/E that fills in the e-mail
   address, but only the local part on the left side of '@'.

 * Documentation pages for "git shortlog" now list commit limiting
   options explicitly.

 * The patterns to detect function boundary for Elixir language has
   been added.

 * The completion script (in contrib/) learned that the "--onto"
   option of "git rebase" can take its argument as the value of the
   option.

 * The userdiff machinery has been taught that "async def" is another
   way to begin a "function" in Python.

 * "git range-diff" learned to take the "--notes=<ref>" and the
   "--no-notes" options to control the commit notes included in the
   log message that gets compared.

 * "git rev-parse --show-toplevel" run outside of any working tree did
   not error out, which has been corrected.

 * A few commands learned to take the pathspec from the standard input
   or a named file, instead of taking it as the command line
   arguments, with the "--pathspec-from-file" option.

 * "git submodule" learned a subcommand "set-url".

 * "git log" family learned "--pretty=reference" that gives the name
   of a commit in the format that is often used to refer to it in log
   messages.

 * The interaction between "git clone --recurse-submodules" and
   alternate object store was ill-designed.  The documentation and
   code have been taught to make more clear recommendations when the
   users see failures.

 * Management of sparsely checked-out working tree has gained a
   dedicated "sparse-checkout" command.

 * Miscellaneous small UX improvements on "git-p4".

 * "git sparse-checkout list" subcommand learned to give its output in
   a more concise form when the "cone" mode is in effect.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * Debugging support for lazy cloning has been a bit improved.

 * Move the definition of a set of bitmask constants from 0ctal
   literal to (1U<<count) notation.

 * Test updates to prepare for SHA-2 transition continues.

 * Crufty code and logic accumulated over time around the object
   parsing and low-level object access used in "git fsck" have been
   cleaned up.

 * The implementation of "git log --graph" got refactored and then its
   output got simplified.

 * Follow recent push to move API docs from Documentation/ to header
   files and update config.h

 * "git bundle" has been taught to use the parse options API.  "git
   bundle verify" learned "--quiet" and "git bundle create" learned
   options to control the progress output.

 * Handling of commit objects that use non UTF-8 encoding during
   "rebase -i" has been improved.

 * The beginning of rewriting "git add -i" in C.

 * A label used in the todo list that are generated by "git rebase
   --rebase-merges" is used as a part of a refname; the logic to come
   up with the label has been tightened to avoid names that cannot be
   used as such.

 * The logic to avoid duplicate label names generated by "git rebase
   --rebase-merges" forgot that the machinery itself uses "onto" as a
   label name, which must be avoided by auto-generated labels, which
   has been corrected.

 * We have had compatibility fallback macro definitions for "PRIuMAX",
   "PRIu32", etc. but did not for "PRIdMAX", while the code used the
   last one apparently without any hiccup reported recently.  The
   fallback macro definitions for these <inttypes.h> macros that must
   appear in C99 systems have been removed.

 * Recently we have declared that GIT_TEST_* variables take the
   usual boolean values (it used to be that some used "non-empty
   means true" and taking GIT_TEST_VAR=YesPlease as true); make
   sure we notice and fail when non-bool strings are given to
   these variables.

 * Users of oneway_merge() (like "reset --hard") learned to take
   advantage of fsmonitor to avoid unnecessary lstat(2) calls.

 * Performance tweak on "git push" into a repository with many refs
   that point at objects we have never heard of.

 * PerfTest fix to avoid stale result mixed up with the latest round
   of test results.

 * Hide lower-level verify_signed-buffer() API as a pure helper to
   implement the public check_signature() function, in order to
   encourage new callers to use the correct and more strict
   validation.

 * Unnecessary reading of state variables back from the disk during
   sequencer operation has been reduced.

 * The code has been made to avoid gmtime() and localtime() and prefer
   their reentrant counterparts.

 * In a repository with many packfiles, the cost of the procedure that
   avoids registering the same packfile twice was unnecessarily high
   by using an inefficient search algorithm, which has been corrected.

 * Redo "git name-rev" to avoid recursive calls.

 * FreeBSD CI support via Cirrus-CI has been added.


Fixes since v2.24
-----------------

 * "rebase -i" ceased to run post-commit hook by mistake in an earlier
   update, which has been corrected.

 * "git notes copy $original" ought to copy the notes attached to the
   original object to HEAD, but a mistaken tightening to command line
   parameter validation made earlier disabled that feature by mistake.

 * When all files from some subdirectory were renamed to the root
   directory, the directory rename heuristics would fail to detect that
   as a rename/merge of the subdirectory to the root directory, which has
   been corrected.

 * Code clean-up and a bugfix in the logic used to tell worktree local
   and repository global refs apart.

 * "git stash save" in a working tree that is sparsely checked out
   mistakenly removed paths that are outside the area of interest.

 * "git rev-parse --git-path HEAD.lock" did not give the right path
   when run in a secondary worktree.

 * "git merge --no-commit" needs "--no-ff" if you do not want to move
   HEAD, which has been corrected in the manual page for "git bisect".

 * "git worktree add" internally calls "reset --hard" that should not
   descend into submodules, even when submodule.recurse configuration
   is set, but it was affected.  This has been corrected.

 * Messages from die() etc. can be mixed up from multiple processes
   without even line buffering on Windows, which has been worked
   around.

 * HTTP transport had possible allocator/deallocator mismatch, which
   has been corrected.

 * The watchman integration for fsmonitor was racy, which has been
   corrected to be more conservative.

 * Fetching from multiple remotes into the same repository in parallel
   had a bad interaction with the recent change to (optionally) update
   the commit-graph after a fetch job finishes, as these parallel
   fetches compete with each other.  Which has been corrected.

 * Recent update to "git stash pop" made the command empty the index
   when run with the "--quiet" option, which has been corrected.

 * "git fetch" codepath had a big "do not lazily fetch missing objects
   when I ask if something exists" switch.  This has been corrected by
   marking the "does this thing exist?" calls with "if not please do not
   lazily fetch it" flag.

 * Test update to avoid wasted cycles.

 * Error handling after "git push" finishes sending the packdata and
   waits for the response to the remote side has been improved.

 * Some codepaths in "gitweb" that forgot to escape URLs generated
   based on end-user input have been corrected.

 * CI jobs for macOS has been made less chatty when updating perforce
   package used during testing.

 * "git unpack-objects" used to show progress based only on the number
   of received and unpacked objects, which stalled when it has to
   handle an unusually large object.  It now shows the throughput as
   well.

 * The sequencer machinery compared the HEAD and the state it is
   attempting to commit to decide if the result would be a no-op
   commit, even when amending a commit, which was incorrect, and
   has been corrected.

 * The code to parse GPG output used to assume incorrectly that the
   finterprint for the primary key would always be present for a valid
   signature, which has been corrected.

 * "git submodule status" and "git submodule status --cached" show
   different things, but the documentation did not cover them
   correctly, which has been corrected.

 * "git reset --patch $object" without any pathspec should allow a
   tree object to be given, but incorrectly required a committish,
   which has been corrected.

 * "git submodule status" that is run from a subdirectory of the
   superproject did not work well, which has been corrected.

 * The revision walking machinery uses resources like per-object flag
   bits that need to be reset before a new iteration of walking
   begins, but the resources related to topological walk were not
   cleared correctly, which has been corrected.

 * TravisCI update.

 * While running "revert" or "cherry-pick --edit" for multiple
   commits, a recent regression incorrectly detected "nothing to
   commit, working tree clean", instead of replaying the commits,
   which has been corrected.

 * Work around a issue where a FD that is left open when spawning a
   child process and is kept open in the child can interfere with the
   operation in the parent process on Windows.

 * One kind of progress messages were always given during commit-graph
   generation, instead of following the "if it takes more than two
   seconds, show progress" pattern, which has been corrected.

 * "git rebase" did not work well when format.useAutoBase
   configuration variable is set, which has been corrected.

 * The "diff" machinery learned not to lose added/removed blank lines
   in the context when --ignore-blank-lines and --function-context are
   used at the same time.

 * The test on "fast-import" used to get stuck when "fast-import" died
   in the middle.

 * "git format-patch" can take a set of configured format.notes values
   to specify which notes refs to use in the log message part of the
   output.  The behaviour of this was not consistent with multiple
   --notes command line options, which has been corrected.

 * "git p4" used to ignore lfs.storage configuration variable, which
   has been corrected.

 * Assorted fixes to the directory traversal API.

 * Forbid pathnames that the platform's filesystem cannot represent on
   MinGW.

 * "git rebase --signoff" stopped working when the command was written
   in C, which has been corrected.

 * An earlier update to Git for Windows declared that a tree object is
   invalid if it has a path component with backslash in it, which was
   overly strict, which has been corrected.  The only protection the
   Windows users need is to prevent such path (or any path that their
   filesystem cannot check out) from entering the index.

 * The code to write split commit-graph file(s) upon fetching computed
   bogus value for the parameter used in splitting the resulting
   files, which has been corrected.

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.

devel/git: security fix (update to 2.23.1)

Via patch.

---
   Changes:
   2.23.1
   ======
   This release merges up the fixes that appear in v2.14.6, v2.15.4,
   v2.17.3, v2.20.2 and in v2.21.1, addressing the security issues
   CVE-2019-1348, CVE-2019-1349, CVE-2019-1350, CVE-2019-1351,
   CVE-2019-1352, CVE-2019-1353, CVE-2019-1354, CVE-2019-1387, and
   CVE-2019-19604.

    * CVE-2019-1348:
      The --export-marks option of git fast-import is exposed also via
      the in-stream command feature export-marks=... and it allows
      overwriting arbitrary paths.

    * CVE-2019-1349:
      When submodules are cloned recursively, under certain circumstances
      Git could be fooled into using the same Git directory twice. We now
      require the directory to be empty.

    * CVE-2019-1350:
      Incorrect quoting of command-line arguments allowed remote code
      execution during a recursive clone in conjunction with SSH URLs.

    * CVE-2019-1351:
      While the only permitted drive letters for physical drives on
      Windows are letters of the US-English alphabet, this restriction
      does not apply to virtual drives assigned via subst <letter>:
      <path>. Git mistook such paths for relative paths, allowing writing
      outside of the worktree while cloning.

    * CVE-2019-1352:
      Git was unaware of NTFS Alternate Data Streams, allowing files
      inside the .git/ directory to be overwritten during a clone.

    * CVE-2019-1353:
      When running Git in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (also known as
      "WSL") while accessing a working directory on a regular Windows
      drive, none of the NTFS protections were active.

    * CVE-2019-1354:
      Filenames on Linux/Unix can contain backslashes. On Windows,
      backslashes are directory separators. Git did not use to refuse to
      write out tracked files with such filenames.

    * CVE-2019-1387:
      Recursive clones are currently affected by a vulnerability that is
      caused by too-lax validation of submodule names, allowing very
      targeted attacks via remote code execution in recursive clones.

   Credit for finding these vulnerabilities goes to Microsoft Security
   Response Center, in particular to Nicolas Joly. The `fast-import`
   fixes were provided by Jeff King, the other fixes by Johannes
   Schindelin with help from Garima Singh.

    * CVE-2019-19604:
      The change to disallow `submodule.<name>.update=!command` entries in
      `.gitmodules` which was introduced v2.15.4 (and for which v2.17.3
      added explicit fsck checks) fixes the vulnerability in v2.20.x where
      a recursive clone followed by a submodule update could execute code
      contained within the repository without the user explicitly having
      asked for that.

   Credit for finding this vulnerability goes to Joern Schneeweisz,
   credit for the fixes goes to Jonathan Nieder.

git: updated to 2.24.0

Git 2.24 Release Notes
======================

Updates since v2.23
-------------------

Backward compatibility note

 * "filter-branch" is showing its age and alternatives are available.
   From this release, we started to discourage its use and hint
   people about filter-repo.

UI, Workflows & Features

 * We now have an active interim maintainer for the Git-Gui part of
   the system.  Praise and thank Pratyush Yadav for volunteering.

 * The command line parser learned "--end-of-options" notation; the
   standard convention for scripters to have hardcoded set of options
   first on the command line, and force the command to treat end-user
   input as non-options, has been to use "--" as the delimiter, but
   that would not work for commands that use "--" as a delimiter
   between revs and pathspec.

 * A mechanism to affect the default setting for a (related) group of
   configuration variables is introduced.

 * "git fetch" learned "--set-upstream" option to help those who first
   clone from their private fork they intend to push to, add the true
   upstream via "git remote add" and then "git fetch" from it.

 * Device-tree files learned their own userdiff patterns.
   (merge 3c81760bc6 sb/userdiff-dts later to maint).

 * "git rebase --rebase-merges" learned to drive different merge
   strategies and pass strategy specific options to them.

 * A new "pre-merge-commit" hook has been introduced.

 * Command line completion updates for "git -c var.name=val" have been
   added.

 * The lazy clone machinery has been taught that there can be more
   than one promisor remote and consult them in order when downloading
   missing objects on demand.

 * The list-objects-filter API (used to create a sparse/lazy clone)
   learned to take a combined filter specification.

 * The documentation and tests for "git format-patch" have been
   cleaned up.

 * On Windows, the root level of UNC share is now allowed to be used
   just like any other directory.

 * The command line completion support (in contrib/) learned about the
   "--skip" option of "git revert" and "git cherry-pick".

 * "git rebase --keep-base <upstream>" tries to find the original base
   of the topic being rebased and rebase on top of that same base,
   which is useful when running the "git rebase -i" (and its limited
   variant "git rebase -x").

   The command also has learned to fast-forward in more cases where it
   can instead of replaying to recreate identical commits.

 * A configuration variable tells "git fetch" to write the commit
   graph after finishing.

 * "git add -i" has been taught to show the total number of hunks and
   the hunks that has been processed so far when showing prompts.

 * "git fetch --jobs=<n>" allowed <n> parallel jobs when fetching
   submodules, but this did not apply to "git fetch --multiple" that
   fetches from multiple remote repositories.  It now does.

 * The installation instruction for zsh completion script (in
   contrib/) has been a bit improved.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The code to write commit-graph over given commit object names has
   been made a bit more robust.

 * The first line of verbose output from each test piece now carries
   the test name and number to help scanning with eyeballs.

 * Further clean-up of the initialization code.

 * xmalloc() used to have a mechanism to ditch memory and address
   space resources as the last resort upon seeing an allocation
   failure from the underlying malloc(), which made the code complex
   and thread-unsafe with dubious benefit, as major memory resource
   users already do limit their uses with various other mechanisms.
   It has been simplified away.

 * Unnecessary full-tree diff in "git log -L" machinery has been
   optimized away.

 * The http transport lacked some optimization the native transports
   learned to avoid unnecessary ref advertisement, which has been
   corrected.

 * Preparation for SHA-256 upgrade continues in the test department.
   (merge 0c37c41d13 bc/hash-independent-tests-part-5 later to maint).

 * The memory ownership model of the "git fast-import" got
   straightened out.

 * Output from trace2 subsystem is formatted more prettily now.

 * The internal code originally invented for ".gitignore" processing
   got reshuffled and renamed to make it less tied to "excluding" and
   stress more that it is about "matching", as it has been reused for
   things like sparse checkout specification that want to check if a
   path is "included".

 * "git stash" learned to write refreshed index back to disk.

 * Coccinelle checks are done on more source files than before now.

 * The cache-tree code has been taught to be less aggressive in
   attempting to see if a tree object it computed already exists in
   the repository.

 * The code to parse and use the commit-graph file has been made more
   robust against corrupted input.

 * The hg-to-git script (in contrib/) has been updated to work with
   Python 3.

 * Update the way build artifacts in t/helper/ directory are ignored.

 * Preparation for SHA-256 upgrade continues.

 * "git log --graph" for an octopus merge is sometimes colored
   incorrectly, which is demonstrated and documented but not yet
   fixed.

 * The trace2 output, when sending them to files in a designated
   directory, can populate the directory with too many files; a
   mechanism is introduced to set the maximum number of files and
   discard further logs when the maximum is reached.

 * We have adopted a Code-of-conduct document.
   (merge 3f9ef874a7 jk/coc later to maint).


Fixes since v2.23
-----------------

 * "git grep --recurse-submodules" that looks at the working tree
   files looked at the contents in the index in submodules, instead of
   files in the working tree.
   (merge 6a289d45c0 mt/grep-submodules-working-tree later to maint).

 * Codepaths to walk tree objects have been audited for integer
   overflows and hardened.
   (merge 5aa02f9868 jk/tree-walk-overflow later to maint).

 * "git pack-refs" can lose refs that are created while running, which
   is getting corrected.
   (merge a613d4f817 sc/pack-refs-deletion-racefix later to maint).

 * "git checkout" and "git restore" to re-populate the index from a
   tree-ish (typically HEAD) did not work correctly for a path that
   was removed and then added again with the intent-to-add bit, when
   the corresponding working tree file was empty.  This has been
   corrected.

 * Compilation fix.
   (merge 70597e8386 rs/nedalloc-fixlets later to maint).

 * "git gui" learned to call the clean-up procedure before exiting.
   (merge 0d88f3d2c5 py/git-gui-do-quit later to maint).

 * We promoted the "indent heuristics" that decides where to split
   diff hunks from experimental to the default a few years ago, but
   some stale documentation still marked it as experimental, which has
   been corrected.
   (merge 64e5e1fba1 sg/diff-indent-heuristic-non-experimental later to maint).

 * Fix a mismerge that happened in 2.22 timeframe.
   (merge acb7da05ac en/checkout-mismerge-fix later to maint).

 * "git archive" recorded incorrect length in extended pax header in
   some corner cases, which has been corrected.
   (merge 71d41ff651 rs/pax-extended-header-length-fix later to maint).

 * On-demand object fetching in lazy clone incorrectly tried to fetch
   commits from submodule projects, while still working in the
   superproject, which has been corrected.
   (merge a63694f523 jt/diff-lazy-fetch-submodule-fix later to maint).

 * Prepare get_short_oid() codepath to be thread-safe.
   (merge 7cfcb16b0e rs/sort-oid-array-thread-safe later to maint).

 * "for-each-ref" and friends that show refs did not protect themselves
   against ancient tags that did not record tagger names when asked to
   show "%(taggername)", which have been corrected.
   (merge 8b3f33ef11 mp/for-each-ref-missing-name-or-email later to maint).

 * The "git am" based backend of "git rebase" ignored the result of
   updating ".gitattributes" done in one step when replaying
   subsequent steps.
   (merge 2c65d90f75 bc/reread-attributes-during-rebase later to maint).

 * Tell cURL library to use the same malloc() implementation, with the
   xmalloc() wrapper, as the rest of the system, for consistency.
   (merge 93b980e58f cb/curl-use-xmalloc later to maint).

 * Build fix to adjust .gitignore to unignore a path that we started to track.
   (merge aac6ff7b5b js/visual-studio later to maint).

 * A few implementation fixes in the notes API.
   (merge 60fe477a0b mh/notes-duplicate-entries later to maint).

 * Fix an earlier regression to "git push --all" which should have
   been forbidden when the target remote repository is set to be a
   mirror.
   (merge 8e4c8af058 tg/push-all-in-mirror-forbidden later to maint).

 * Fix an earlier regression in the test suite, which mistakenly
   stopped running HTTPD tests.
   (merge 3960290675 sg/git-test-boolean later to maint).

 * "git rebase --autostash <upstream> <branch>", when <branch> is
   different from the current branch, incorrectly moved the tip of the
   current branch, which has been corrected.
   (merge bf1e28e0ad bw/rebase-autostash-keep-current-branch later to maint).

 * Update support for Asciidoctor documentation toolchain.
   (merge 83b0b8953e ma/asciidoctor-refmiscinfo later to maint).

 * Start using DocBook 5 (instead of DocBook 4.5) as Asciidoctor 2.0
   no longer works with the older one.
   (merge f6461b82b9 bc/doc-use-docbook-5 later to maint).

 * The markup used in user-manual has been updated to work better with
   asciidoctor.
   (merge c4d2f6143a ma/user-manual-markup-update later to maint).

 * Make sure the grep machinery does not abort when seeing a payload
   that is not UTF-8 even when JIT is not in use with PCRE1.
   (merge ad7c543e3b cb/skip-utf8-check-with-pcre1 later to maint).

 * The name of the blob object that stores the filter specification
   for sparse cloning/fetching was interpreted in a wrong place in the
   code, causing Git to abort.

 * "git log --decorate-refs-exclude=<pattern>" was incorrectly
   overruled when the "--simplify-by-decoration" option is used, which
   has been corrected.
   (merge 0cc7380d88 rs/simplify-by-deco-with-deco-refs-exclude later to maint).

 * The "upload-pack" (the counterpart of "git fetch") needs to disable
   commit-graph when responding to a shallow clone/fetch request, but
   the way this was done made Git panic, which has been corrected.

 * The object traversal machinery has been optimized not to load tree
   objects when we are only interested in commit history.
   (merge 72ed80c784 jk/list-objects-optim-wo-trees later to maint).

 * The object name parser for "Nth parent" syntax has been made more
   robust against integer overflows.
   (merge 59fa5f5a25 rs/nth-parent-parse later to maint).

 * The code used in following tags in "git fetch" has been optimized.
   (merge b7e2d8bca5 ms/fetch-follow-tag-optim later to maint).

 * Regression fix for progress output.
   (merge 2bb74b53a4 sg/progress-fix later to maint).

 * A bug in merge-recursive code that triggers when a branch with a
   symbolic link is merged with a branch that replaces it with a
   directory has been fixed.
   (merge 83e3ad3b12 jt/merge-recursive-symlink-is-not-a-dir-in-way later to maint).

 * The rename detection logic sorts a list of rename source candidates
   by similarity to pick the best candidate, which means that a tie
   between sources with the same similarity is broken by the original
   location in the original candidate list (which is sorted by path).
   Force the sorting by similarity done with a stable sort, which is
   not promised by system supplied qsort(3), to ensure consistent
   results across platforms.
   (merge 2049b8dc65 js/diff-rename-force-stable-sort later to maint).

 * The code to skip "UTF" and "UTF-" prefix, when computing an advice
   message, did not work correctly when the prefix was "UTF", which
   has been fixed.
   (merge b181676ce9 rs/convert-fix-utf-without-dash later to maint).

 * The author names taken from SVN repositories may have extra leading
   or trailing whitespaces, which are now munged away.
   (merge 4ddd4bddb1 tk/git-svn-trim-author-name later to maint).

 * "git rebase -i" showed a wrong HEAD while "reword" open the editor.
   (merge b0a3186140 pw/rebase-i-show-HEAD-to-reword later to maint).

 * A few simplification and bugfixes to PCRE interface.
   (merge c581e4a749 ab/pcre-jit-fixes later to maint).

 * PCRE fixes.
   (merge ff61681b46 cb/pcre1-cleanup later to maint).

 * "git range-diff" segfaulted when diff.noprefix configuration was
   used, as it blindly expected the patch it internally generates to
   have the standard a/ and b/ prefixes.  The command now forces the
   internal patch to be built without any prefix, not to be affected
   by any end-user configuration.
   (merge 937b76ed49 js/range-diff-noprefix later to maint).

 * "git stash apply" in a subdirectory of a secondary worktree failed
   to access the worktree correctly, which has been corrected.
   (merge dfd557c978 js/stash-apply-in-secondary-worktree later to maint).

 * The merge-recursive machinery is one of the most complex parts of
   the system that accumulated cruft over time.  This large series
   cleans up the implementation quite a bit.
   (merge b657047719 en/merge-recursive-cleanup later to maint).

 * Pretty-printed command line formatter (used in e.g. reporting the
   command being run by the tracing API) had a bug that lost an
   argument that is an empty string, which has been corrected.
   (merge ce2d7ed2fd gs/sq-quote-buf-pretty later to maint).

 * "git range-diff" failed to handle mode-only change, which has been
   corrected.

 * Dev support update.
   (merge 4f3c1dc5d6 dl/allow-running-cocci-verbosely later to maint).

 * "git format-patch -o <outdir>" did an equivalent of "mkdir <outdir>"
   not "mkdir -p <outdir>", which was corrected.

 * "git stash save" lost local changes to submodules, which has been
   corrected.
   (merge 556895d0c8 jj/stash-reset-only-toplevel later to maint).

 * The atomic push over smart HTTP transport did not work, which has
   been corrected.

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.

git: updated to 2.23.0

Git 2.23 Release Notes
======================

Updates since v2.22
-------------------

Backward compatibility note

 * The "--base" option of "format-patch" computed the patch-ids for
   prerequisite patches in an unstable way, which has been updated to
   compute in a way that is compatible with "git patch-id --stable".

 * The "git log" command by default behaves as if the --mailmap option
   was given.


UI, Workflows & Features

 * The "git fast-export/import" pair has been taught to handle commits
   with log messages in encoding other than UTF-8 better.

 * In recent versions of Git, per-worktree refs are exposed in
   refs/worktrees/<wtname>/ hierarchy, which means that worktree names
   must be a valid refname component.  The code now sanitizes the names
   given to worktrees, to make sure these refs are well-formed.

 * "git merge" learned "--quit" option that cleans up the in-progress
   merge while leaving the working tree and the index still in a mess.

 * "git format-patch" learns a configuration to set the default for
   its --notes=<ref> option.

 * The code to show args with potential typo that cannot be
   interpreted as a commit-ish has been improved.

 * "git clone --recurse-submodules" learned to set up the submodules
   to ignore commit object names recorded in the superproject gitlink
   and instead use the commits that happen to be at the tip of the
   remote-tracking branches from the get-go, by passing the new
   "--remote-submodules" option.

 * The pattern "git diff/grep" use to extract funcname and words
   boundary for Matlab has been extend to cover Octave, which is more
   or less equivalent.

 * "git help git" was hard to discover (well, at least for some
   people).

 * The pattern "git diff/grep" use to extract funcname and words
   boundary for Rust has been added.

 * "git status" can be told a non-standard default value for the
   "--[no-]ahead-behind" option with a new configuration variable
   status.aheadBehind.

 * "git fetch" and "git pull" reports when a fetch results in
   non-fast-forward updates to let the user notice unusual situation.
   The commands learned "--no-show-forced-updates" option to disable
   this safety feature.

 * Two new commands "git switch" and "git restore" are introduced to
   split "checking out a branch to work on advancing its history" and
   "checking out paths out of the index and/or a tree-ish to work on
   advancing the current history" out of the single "git checkout"
   command.

 * "git branch --list" learned to always output the detached HEAD as
   the first item (when the HEAD is detached, of course), regardless
   of the locale.

 * The conditional inclusion mechanism learned to base the choice on
   the branch the HEAD currently is on.

 * "git rev-list --objects" learned the "--no-object-names" option to
   squelch the path to the object that is used as a grouping hint for
   pack-objects.

 * A new tag.gpgSign configuration variable turns "git tag -a" into
   "git tag -s".

 * "git multi-pack-index" learned expire and repack subcommands.

 * "git blame" learned to "ignore" commits in the history, whose
   effects (as well as their presence) get ignored.

 * "git cherry-pick/revert" learned a new "--skip" action.

 * The tips of refs from the alternate object store can be used as
   starting point for reachability computation now.

 * Extra blank lines in "git status" output have been reduced.

 * The commits in a repository can be described by multiple
   commit-graph files now, which allows the commit-graph files to be
   updated incrementally.

 * "git range-diff" output has been tweaked for easier identification
   of which part of what file the patch shown is about.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * Update supporting parts of "git rebase" to remove code that should
   no longer be used.

 * Developer support to emulate unsatisfied prerequisites in tests to
   ensure that the remainder of the tests still succeeds when tests
   with prerequisites are skipped.

 * "git update-server-info" learned not to rewrite the file with the
   same contents.

 * The way of specifying the path to find dynamic libraries at runtime
   has been simplified.  The old default to pass -R/path/to/dir has been
   replaced with the new default to pass -Wl,-rpath,/path/to/dir,
   which is the more recent GCC uses.  Those who need to build with an
   old GCC can still use "CC_LD_DYNPATH=-R"

 * Prepare use of reachability index in topological walker that works
   on a range (A..B).

 * A new tutorial targeting specifically aspiring git-core
   developers has been added.

 * Auto-detect how to tell HP-UX aCC where to use dynamically linked
   libraries from at runtime.

 * "git mergetool" and its tests now spawn fewer subprocesses.

 * Dev support update to help tracing out tests.

 * Support to build with MSVC has been updated.

 * "git fetch" that grabs from a group of remotes learned to run the
   auto-gc only once at the very end.

 * A handful of Windows build patches have been upstreamed.

 * The code to read state files used by the sequencer machinery for
   "git status" has been made more robust against a corrupt or stale
   state files.

 * "git for-each-ref" with multiple patterns have been optimized.

 * The tree-walk API learned to pass an in-core repository
   instance throughout more codepaths.

 * When one step in multi step cherry-pick or revert is reset or
   committed, the command line prompt script failed to notice the
   current status, which has been improved.

 * Many GIT_TEST_* environment variables control various aspects of
   how our tests are run, but a few followed "non-empty is true, empty
   or unset is false" while others followed the usual "there are a few
   ways to spell true, like yes, on, etc., and also ways to spell
   false, like no, off, etc." convention.

 * Adjust the dir-iterator API and apply it to the local clone
   optimization codepath.

 * We have been trying out a few language features outside c89; the
   coding guidelines document did not talk about them and instead had
   a blanket ban against them.

 * A test helper has been introduced to optimize preparation of test
   repositories with many simple commits, and a handful of test
   scripts have been updated to use it.


Fixes since v2.22
-----------------

 * A relative pathname given to "git init --template=<path> <repo>"
   ought to be relative to the directory "git init" gets invoked in,
   but it instead was made relative to the repository, which has been
   corrected.

 * "git worktree add" used to fail when another worktree connected to
   the same repository was corrupt, which has been corrected.

 * The ownership rule for the file descriptor to fast-import remote
   backend was mixed up, leading to an unrelated file descriptor getting
   closed, which has been fixed.

 * A "merge -c" instruction during "git rebase --rebase-merges" should
   give the user a chance to edit the log message, even when there is
   otherwise no need to create a new merge and replace the existing
   one (i.e. fast-forward instead), but did not.  Which has been
   corrected.

 * Code cleanup and futureproof.

 * More parameter validation.

 * "git update-server-info" used to leave stale packfiles in its
   output, which has been corrected.

 * The server side support for "git fetch" used to show incorrect
   value for the HEAD symbolic ref when the namespace feature is in
   use, which has been corrected.

 * "git am -i --resolved" segfaulted after trying to see a commit as
   if it were a tree, which has been corrected.

 * "git bundle verify" needs to see if prerequisite objects exist in
   the receiving repository, but the command did not check if we are
   in a repository upfront, which has been corrected.

 * "git merge --squash" is designed to update the working tree and the
   index without creating the commit, and this cannot be countermanded
   by adding the "--commit" option; the command now refuses to work
   when both options are given.

 * The data collected by fsmonitor was not properly written back to
   the on-disk index file, breaking t7519 tests occasionally, which
   has been corrected.

 * Update to Unicode 12.1 width table.

 * The command line to invoke a "git cat-file" command from inside
   "git p4" was not properly quoted to protect a caret and running a
   broken command on Windows, which has been corrected.

 * "git request-pull" learned to warn when the ref we ask them to pull
   from in the local repository and in the published repository are
   different.

 * When creating a partial clone, the object filtering criteria is
   recorded for the origin of the clone, but this incorrectly used a
   hardcoded name "origin" to name that remote; it has been corrected
   to honor the "--origin <name>" option.

 * "git fetch" into a lazy clone forgot to fetch base objects that are
   necessary to complete delta in a thin packfile, which has been
   corrected.

 * The filter_data used in the list-objects-filter (which manages a
   lazily sparse clone repository) did not use the dynamic array API
   correctly---'nr' is supposed to point at one past the last element
   of the array in use.  This has been corrected.

 * The description about slashes in gitignore patterns (used to
   indicate things like "anchored to this level only" and "only
   matches directories") has been revamped.

 * The URL decoding code has been updated to avoid going past the end
   of the string while parsing %-<hex>-<hex> sequence.

 * The list of for-each like macros used by clang-format has been
   updated.

 * "git branch --list" learned to show branches that are checked out
   in other worktrees connected to the same repository prefixed with
   '+', similar to the way the currently checked out branch is shown
   with '*' in front.
   (merge 6e9381469e nb/branch-show-other-worktrees-head later to maint).

 * Code restructuring during 2.20 period broke fetching tags via
   "import" based transports.

 * The commit-graph file is now part of the "files that the runtime
   may keep open file descriptors on, all of which would need to be
   closed when done with the object store", and the file descriptor to
   an existing commit-graph file now is closed before "gc" finalizes a
   new instance to replace it.

 * "git checkout -p" needs to selectively apply a patch in reverse,
   which did not work well.

 * Code clean-up to avoid signed integer wraparounds during binary search.

 * "git interpret-trailers" always treated '#' as the comment
   character, regardless of core.commentChar setting, which has been
   corrected.

 * "git stash show 23" used to work, but no more after getting
   rewritten in C; this regression has been corrected.

 * "git rebase --abort" used to leave refs/rewritten/ when concluding
   "git rebase -r", which has been corrected.

 * An incorrect list of options was cached after command line
   completion failed (e.g. trying to complete a command that requires
   a repository outside one), which has been corrected.

 * The code to parse scaled numbers out of configuration files has
   been made more robust and also easier to follow.

 * The codepath to compute delta islands used to spew progress output
   without giving the callers any way to squelch it, which has been
   fixed.

 * Protocol capabilities that go over wire should never be translated,
   but it was incorrectly marked for translation, which has been
   corrected.  The output of protocol capabilities for debugging has
   been tweaked a bit.

 * Use "Erase in Line" CSI sequence that is already used in the editor
   support to clear cruft in the progress output.

 * "git submodule foreach" did not protect command line options passed
   to the command to be run in each submodule correctly, when the
   "--recursive" option was in use.

 * The configuration variable rebase.rescheduleFailedExec should be
   effective only while running an interactive rebase and should not
   affect anything when running a non-interactive one, which was not
   the case.  This has been corrected.

 * The "git clone" documentation refers to command line options in its
   description in the short form; they have been replaced with long
   forms to make them more recognisable.

 * Generation of pack bitmaps are now disabled when .keep files exist,
   as these are mutually exclusive features.
   (merge 7328482253 ew/repack-with-bitmaps-by-default later to maint).

 * "git rm" to resolve a conflicted path leaked an internal message
   "needs merge" before actually removing the path, which was
   confusing.  This has been corrected.

 * "git stash --keep-index" did not work correctly on paths that have
   been removed, which has been fixed.
   (merge b932f6a5e8 tg/stash-keep-index-with-removed-paths later to maint).

 * Window 7 update ;-)

 * A codepath that reads from GPG for signed object verification read
   past the end of allocated buffer, which has been fixed.

 * "git clean" silently skipped a path when it cannot lstat() it; now
   it gives a warning.

 * "git push --atomic" that goes over the transport-helper (namely,
   the smart http transport) failed to prevent refs to be pushed when
   it can locally tell that one of the ref update will fail without
   having to consult the other end, which has been corrected.

 * The internal diff machinery can be made to read out of bounds while
   looking for --function-context line in a corner case, which has been
   corrected.
   (merge b777f3fd61 jk/xdiff-clamp-funcname-context-index later to maint).

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
   (merge fbec05c210 cc/test-oidmap later to maint).
   (merge 7a06fb038c jk/no-system-includes-in-dot-c later to maint).
   (merge 81ed2b405c cb/xdiff-no-system-includes-in-dot-c later to maint).

git: updated to 2.19.0

Git 2.19 Release Notes

Updates since v2.18
-------------------

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "git diff" compares the index and the working tree.  For paths
   added with intent-to-add bit, the command shows the full contents
   of them as added, but the paths themselves were not marked as new
   files.  They are now shown as new by default.

   "git apply" learned the "--intent-to-add" option so that an
   otherwise working-tree-only application of a patch will add new
   paths to the index marked with the "intent-to-add" bit.

 * "git grep" learned the "--column" option that gives not just the
   line number but the column number of the hit.

 * The "-l" option in "git branch -l" is an unfortunate short-hand for
   "--create-reflog", but many users, both old and new, somehow expect
   it to be something else, perhaps "--list".  This step warns when "-l"
   is used as a short-hand for "--create-reflog" and warns about the
   future repurposing of the it when it is used.

 * The userdiff pattern for .php has been updated.

 * The content-transfer-encoding of the message "git send-email" sends
   out by default was 8bit, which can cause trouble when there is an
   overlong line to bust RFC 5322/2822 limit.  A new option 'auto' to
   automatically switch to quoted-printable when there is such a line
   in the payload has been introduced and is made the default.

 * "git checkout" and "git worktree add" learned to honor
   checkout.defaultRemote when auto-vivifying a local branch out of a
   remote tracking branch in a repository with multiple remotes that
   have tracking branches that share the same names.
   (merge 8d7b558bae ab/checkout-default-remote later to maint).

 * "git grep" learned the "--only-matching" option.

 * "git rebase --rebase-merges" mode now handles octopus merges as
   well.

 * Add a server-side knob to skip commits in exponential/fibbonacci
   stride in an attempt to cover wider swath of history with a smaller
   number of iterations, potentially accepting a larger packfile
   transfer, instead of going back one commit a time during common
   ancestor discovery during the "git fetch" transaction.
   (merge 42cc7485a2 jt/fetch-negotiator-skipping later to maint).

 * A new configuration variable core.usereplacerefs has been added,
   primarily to help server installations that want to ignore the
   replace mechanism altogether.

 * Teach "git tag -s" etc. a few configuration variables (gpg.format
   that can be set to "openpgp" or "x509", and gpg.<format>.program
   that is used to specify what program to use to deal with the format)
   to allow x.509 certs with CMS via "gpgsm" to be used instead of
   openpgp via "gnupg".

 * Many more strings are prepared for l10n.

 * "git p4 submit" learns to ask its own pre-submit hook if it should
   continue with submitting.

 * The test performed at the receiving end of "git push" to prevent
   bad objects from entering repository can be customized via
   receive.fsck.* configuration variables; we now have gained a
   counterpart to do the same on the "git fetch" side, with
   fetch.fsck.* configuration variables.

 * "git pull --rebase=interactive" learned "i" as a short-hand for
   "interactive".

 * "git instaweb" has been adjusted to run better with newer Apache on
   RedHat based distros.

 * "git range-diff" is a reimplementation of "git tbdiff" that lets us
   compare individual patches in two iterations of a topic.

 * The sideband code learned to optionally paint selected keywords at
   the beginning of incoming lines on the receiving end.

 * "git branch --list" learned to take the default sort order from the
   'branch.sort' configuration variable, just like "git tag --list"
   pays attention to 'tag.sort'.

 * "git worktree" command learned "--quiet" option to make it less
   verbose.


Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The bulk of "git submodule foreach" has been rewritten in C.

 * The in-core "commit" object had an all-purpose "void *util" field,
   which was tricky to use especially in library-ish part of the
   code.  All of the existing uses of the field has been migrated to a
   more dedicated "commit-slab" mechanism and the field is eliminated.

 * A less often used command "git show-index" has been modernized.
   (merge fb3010c31f jk/show-index later to maint).

 * The conversion to pass "the_repository" and then "a_repository"
   throughout the object access API continues.

 * Continuing with the idea to programatically enumerate various
   pieces of data required for command line completion, teach the
   codebase to report the list of configuration variables
   subcommands care about to help complete them.

 * Separate "rebase -p" codepath out of "rebase -i" implementation to
   slim down the latter and make it easier to manage.

 * Make refspec parsing codepath more robust.

 * Some flaky tests have been fixed.

 * Continuing with the idea to programmatically enumerate various
   pieces of data required for command line completion, the codebase
   has been taught to enumerate options prefixed with "--no-" to
   negate them.

 * Build and test procedure for netrc credential helper (in contrib/)
   has been updated.

 * Remove unused function definitions and declarations from ewah
   bitmap subsystem.

 * Code preparation to make "git p4" closer to be usable with Python 3.

 * Tighten the API to make it harder to misuse in-tree .gitmodules
   file, even though it shares the same syntax with configuration
   files, to read random configuration items from it.

 * "git fast-import" has been updated to avoid attempting to create
   delta against a zero-byte-long string, which is pointless.

 * The codebase has been updated to compile cleanly with -pedantic
   option.
   (merge 2b647a05d7 bb/pedantic later to maint).

 * The character display width table has been updated to match the
   latest Unicode standard.
   (merge 570951eea2 bb/unicode-11-width later to maint).

 * test-lint now looks for broken use of "VAR=VAL shell_func" in test
   scripts.

 * Conversion from uchar[40] to struct object_id continues.

 * Recent "security fix" to pay attention to contents of ".gitmodules"
   while accepting "git push" was a bit overly strict than necessary,
   which has been adjusted.

 * "git fsck" learns to make sure the optional commit-graph file is in
   a sane state.

 * "git diff --color-moved" feature has further been tweaked.

 * Code restructuring and a small fix to transport protocol v2 during
   fetching.

 * Parsing of -L[<N>][,[<M>]] parameters "git blame" and "git log"
   take has been tweaked.

 * lookup_commit_reference() and friends have been updated to find
   in-core object for a specific in-core repository instance.

 * Various glitches in the heuristics of merge-recursive strategy have
   been documented in new tests.

 * "git fetch" learned a new option "--negotiation-tip" to limit the
   set of commits it tells the other end as "have", to reduce wasted
   bandwidth and cycles, which would be helpful when the receiving
   repository has a lot of refs that have little to do with the
   history at the remote it is fetching from.

 * For a large tree, the index needs to hold many cache entries
   allocated on heap.  These cache entries are now allocated out of a
   dedicated memory pool to amortize malloc(3) overhead.

 * Tests to cover various conflicting cases have been added for
   merge-recursive.

 * Tests to cover conflict cases that involve submodules have been
   added for merge-recursive.

 * Look for broken "&&" chains that are hidden in subshell, many of
   which have been found and corrected.

 * The singleton commit-graph in-core instance is made per in-core
   repository instance.

 * "make DEVELOPER=1 DEVOPTS=pedantic" allows developers to compile
   with -pedantic option, which may catch more problematic program
   constructs and potential bugs.

 * Preparatory code to later add json output for telemetry data has
   been added.

 * Update the way we use Coccinelle to find out-of-style code that
   need to be modernised.

 * It is too easy to misuse system API functions such as strcat();
   these selected functions are now forbidden in this codebase and
   will cause a compilation failure.

 * Add a script (in contrib/) to help users of VSCode work better with
   our codebase.

 * The Travis CI scripts were taught to ship back the test data from
   failed tests.
   (merge aea8879a6a sg/travis-retrieve-trash-upon-failure later to maint).

 * The parse-options machinery learned to refrain from enclosing
   placeholder string inside a "<bra" and "ket>" pair automatically
   without PARSE_OPT_LITERAL_ARGHELP.  Existing help text for option
   arguments that are not formatted correctly have been identified and
   fixed.
   (merge 5f0df44cd7 rs/parse-opt-lithelp later to maint).

 * Noiseword "extern" has been removed from function decls in the
   header files.

 * A few atoms like %(objecttype) and %(objectsize) in the format
   specifier of "for-each-ref --format=<format>" can be filled without
   getting the full contents of the object, but just with the object
   header.  These cases have been optimized by calling
   oid_object_info() API (instead of reading and inspecting the data).

 * The end result of documentation update has been made to be
   inspected more easily to help developers.

 * The API to iterate over all objects learned to optionally list
   objects in the order they appear in packfiles, which helps locality
   of access if the caller accesses these objects while as objects are
   enumerated.

 * Improve built-in facility to catch broken &&-chain in the tests.

 * The more library-ish parts of the codebase learned to work on the
   in-core index-state instance that is passed in by their callers,
   instead of always working on the singleton "the_index" instance.

 * A test prerequisite defined by various test scripts with slightly
   different semantics has been consolidated into a single copy and
   made into a lazily defined one.
   (merge 6ec633059a wc/make-funnynames-shared-lazy-prereq later to maint).

 * After a partial clone, repeated fetches from promisor remote would
   have accumulated many packfiles marked with .promisor bit without
   getting them coalesced into fewer packfiles, hurting performance.
   "git repack" now learned to repack them.

 * Partially revert the support for multiple hash functions to regain
   hash comparison performance; we'd think of a way to do this better
   in the next cycle.

 * "git help --config" (which is used in command line completion)
   missed the configuration variables not described in the main
   config.txt file but are described in another file that is included
   by it, which has been corrected.

 * The test linter code has learned that the end of here-doc mark
   "EOF" can be quoted in a double-quote pair, not just in a
   single-quote pair.

git: updated to 2.17.0

Git 2.17:

UI, Workflows & Features
* "diff" family of commands learned "--find-object=<object-id>" option
  to limit the findings to changes that involve the named object.
* "git format-patch" learned to give 72-cols to diffstat, which is
  consistent with other line length limits the subcommand uses for
  its output meant for e-mails.
* The log from "git daemon" can be redirected with a new option; one
  relevant use case is to send the log to standard error (instead of
  syslog) when running it from inetd.
* "git rebase" learned to take "--allow-empty-message" option.
* "git am" has learned the "--quit" option, in addition to the
  existing "--abort" option; having the pair mirrors a few other
  commands like "rebase" and "cherry-pick".
* "git worktree add" learned to run the post-checkout hook, just like
  "git clone" runs it upon the initial checkout.
* "git tag" learned an explicit "--edit" option that allows the
  message given via "-m" and "-F" to be further edited.
* "git fetch --prune-tags" may be used as a handy short-hand for
  getting rid of stale tags that are locally held.
* The new "--show-current-patch" option gives an end-user facing way
  to get the diff being applied when "git rebase" (and "git am")
  stops with a conflict.
* "git add -p" used to offer "/" (look for a matching hunk) as a
  choice, even there was only one hunk, which has been corrected.
  Also the single-key help is now given only for keys that are
  enabled (e.g. help for '/' won't be shown when there is only one
  hunk).
* Since Git 1.7.9, "git merge" defaulted to --no-ff (i.e. even when
  the side branch being merged is a descendant of the current commit,
  create a merge commit instead of fast-forwarding) when merging a
  tag object.  This was appropriate default for integrators who pull
  signed tags from their downstream contributors, but caused an
  unnecessary merges when used by downstream contributors who
  habitually "catch up" their topic branches with tagged releases
  from the upstream.  Update "git merge" to default to --no-ff only
  when merging a tag object that does *not* sit at its usual place in
  refs/tags/ hierarchy, and allow fast-forwarding otherwise, to
  mitigate the problem.
* "git status" can spend a lot of cycles to compute the relation
  between the current branch and its upstream, which can now be
  disabled with "--no-ahead-behind" option.
* "git diff" and friends learned funcname patterns for Go language
  source files.
* "git send-email" learned "--reply-to=<address>" option.
* Funcname pattern used for C# now recognizes "async" keyword.
* In a way similar to how "git tag" learned to honor the pager
  setting only in the list mode, "git config" learned to ignore the
  pager setting when it is used for setting values (i.e. when the
  purpose of the operation is not to "show").

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
* More perf tests for threaded grep
* "perf" test output can be sent to codespeed server.
* The build procedure for perl/ part has been greatly simplified by
  weaning ourselves off of MakeMaker.
* Perl 5.8 or greater has been required since Git 1.7.4 released in
  2010, but we continued to assume some core modules may not exist and
  used a conditional "eval { require <<module>> }"; we no longer do
  this.  Some platforms (Fedora/RedHat/CentOS, for example) ship Perl
  without all core modules by default (e.g. Digest::MD5, File::Temp,
  File::Spec, Net::Domain, Net::SMTP).  Users on such platforms may
  need to install these additional modules.
* As a convenience, we install copies of Perl modules we require which
  are not part of the core Perl distribution (e.g. Error and
  Mail::Address).  Users and packagers whose operating system provides
  these modules can set NO_PERL_CPAN_FALLBACKS to avoid installing the
  bundled modules.
* In preparation for implementing narrow/partial clone, the machinery
  for checking object connectivity used by gc and fsck has been
  taught that a missing object is OK when it is referenced by a
  packfile specially marked as coming from trusted repository that
  promises to make them available on-demand and lazily.
* The machinery to clone & fetch, which in turn involves packing and
  unpacking objects, has been told how to omit certain objects using
  the filtering mechanism introduced by another topic.  It now knows
  to mark the resulting pack as a promisor pack to tolerate missing
  objects, laying foundation for "narrow" clones.
* The first step to getting rid of mru API and using the
  doubly-linked list API directly instead.
* Retire mru API as it does not give enough abstraction over
  underlying list API to be worth it.
* Rewrite two more "git submodule" subcommands in C.
* The tracing machinery learned to report tweaking of environment
  variables as well.
* Update Coccinelle rules to catch and optimize strbuf_addf(&buf, "%s", str)
* Prevent "clang-format" from breaking line after function return type.
* The sequencer infrastructure is shared across "git cherry-pick",
  "git rebase -i", etc., and has always spawned "git commit" when it
  needs to create a commit.  It has been taught to do so internally,
  when able, by reusing the codepath "git commit" itself uses, which
  gives performance boost for a few tens of percents in some sample
  scenarios.
* Push the submodule version of collision-detecting SHA-1 hash
  implementation a bit harder on builders.
* Avoid mmapping small files while using packed refs (especially ones
  with zero size, which would cause later munmap() to fail).
* Conversion from uchar[20] to struct object_id continues.
* More tests for wildmatch functions.
* The code to binary search starting from a fan-out table (which is
  how the packfile is indexed with object names) has been refactored
  into a reusable helper.
* We now avoid using identifiers that clash with C++ keywords.  Even
  though it is not a goal to compile Git with C++ compilers, changes
  like this help use of code analysis tools that targets C++ on our
  codebase.
* The executable is now built in 'script' phase in Travis CI integration,
  to follow the established practice, rather than during 'before_script'
  phase.  This allows the CI categorize the failures better ('failed'
  is project's fault, 'errored' is build environment's).
* Writing out the index file when the only thing that changed in it
  is the untracked cache information is often wasteful, and this has
  been optimized out.
* Various pieces of Perl code we have have been cleaned up.
* Internal API clean-up to allow write_locked_index() optionally skip
  writing the in-core index when it is not modified.

Git v2.16.2 Release Notes

Fixes since v2.16.1

 * An old regression in "git describe --all $annotated_tag^0" has been
   fixed.

 * "git svn dcommit" did not take into account the fact that a
   svn+ssh:// URL with a username@ (typically used for pushing) refers
   to the same SVN repository without the username@ and failed when
   svn.pushmergeinfo option is set.

 * "git merge -Xours/-Xtheirs" learned to use our/their version when
   resolving a conflicting updates to a symbolic link.

 * "git clone $there $here" is allowed even when here directory exists
   as long as it is an empty directory, but the command incorrectly
   removed it upon a failure of the operation.

 * "git stash -- <pathspec>" incorrectly blew away untracked files in
   the directory that matched the pathspec, which has been corrected.

 * "git add -p" was taught to ignore local changes to submodules as
   they do not interfere with the partial addition of regular changes
   anyway.

git: updated to 2.16.0

Git 2.16 Release Notes
Backward compatibility notes and other notable changes.
 * Use of an empty string as a pathspec element that is used for
   'everything matches' is now an error.

Updates since v2.15
UI, Workflows & Features

 * An empty string as a pathspec element that means "everything"
   i.e. 'git add ""', is now illegal.  We started this by first
   deprecating and warning a pathspec that has such an element in
   2.11 (Nov 2016).

 * A hook script that is set unexecutable is simply ignored.  Git
   notifies when such a file is ignored, unless the message is
   squelched via advice.ignoredHook configuration.

 * "git pull" has been taught to accept "--[no-]signoff" option and
   pass it down to "git merge".

 * The "--push-option=<string>" option to "git push" now defaults to a
   list of strings configured via push.pushOption variable.

 * "gitweb" checks if a directory is searchable with Perl's "-x"
   operator, which can be enhanced by using "filetest 'access'"
   pragma, which now we do.

 * "git stash save" has been deprecated in favour of "git stash push".

 * The set of paths output from "git status --ignored" was tied
   closely with its "--untracked=<mode>" option, but now it can be
   controlled more flexibly.  Most notably, a directory that is
   ignored because it is listed to be ignored in the ignore/exclude
   mechanism can be handled differently from a directory that ends up
   to be ignored only because all files in it are ignored.

 * The remote-helper for talking to MediaWiki has been updated to
   truncate an overlong pagename so that ".mw" suffix can still be
   added.

 * The remote-helper for talking to MediaWiki has been updated to
   work with mediawiki namespaces.

 * The "--format=..." option "git for-each-ref" takes learned to show
   the name of the 'remote' repository and the ref at the remote side
   that is affected for 'upstream' and 'push' via "%(push:remotename)"
   and friends.

 * Doc and message updates to teach users "bisect view" is a synonym
   for "bisect visualize".

 * "git bisect run" that did not specify any command to run used to go
   ahead and treated all commits to be tested as 'good'.  This has
   been corrected by making the command error out.

 * The SubmittingPatches document has been converted to produce an
   HTML version via AsciiDoc/Asciidoctor.

 * We learned to optionally talk to a file system monitor via new
   fsmonitor extension to speed up "git status" and other operations
   that need to see which paths have been modified.  Currently we only
   support "watchman".  See File System Monitor section of
   git-update-index(1) for more detail.

 * The "diff" family of commands learned to ignore differences in
   carriage return at the end of line.

 * Places that know about "sendemail.to", like documentation and shell
   completion (in contrib/) have been taught about "sendemail.tocmd",
   too.

 * "git add --renormalize ." is a new and safer way to record the fact
   that you are correcting the end-of-line convention and other
   "convert_to_git()" glitches in the in-repository data.

 * "git branch" and "git checkout -b" are now forbidden from creating
   a branch whose name is "HEAD".

 * "git branch --list" learned to show its output through the pager by
   default when the output is going to a terminal, which is controlled
   by the pager.branch configuration variable.  This is similar to a
   recent change to "git tag --list".

 * "git grep -W", "git diff -W" and their friends learned a heuristic
   to extend a pre-context beyond the line that matches the "function
   pattern" (aka "diff.*.xfuncname") to include a comment block, if
   exists, that immediately precedes it.

 * "git config --expiry-date gc.reflogexpire" can read "2.weeks" from
   the configuration and report it as a timestamp, just like "--int"
   would read "1k" and report 1024, to help consumption by scripts.

 * The shell completion (in contrib/) learned that "git pull" can take
   the "--autostash" option.

 * The tagnames "git log --decorate" uses to annotate the commits can
   now be limited to subset of available refs with the two additional
   options, --decorate-refs[-exclude]=<pattern>.

 * "git grep" compiled with libpcre2 sometimes triggered a segfault,
   which is being fixed.

 * "git send-email" tries to see if the sendmail program is available
   in /usr/lib and /usr/sbin; extend the list of locations to be
   checked to also include directories on $PATH.

 * "git diff" learned, "--anchored", a variant of the "--patience"
   algorithm, to which the user can specify which 'unique' line to be
   used as anchoring points.

 * The way "git worktree add" determines what branch to create from
   where and checkout in the new worktree has been updated a bit.

 * Ancient part of codebase still shows dots after an abbreviated
   object name just to show that it is not a full object name, but
   these ellipses are confusing to people who newly discovered Git
   who are used to seeing abbreviated object names and find them
   confusing with the range syntax.

 * With a configuration variable rebase.abbreviateCommands set,
   "git rebase -i" produces the todo list with a single-letter
   command names.

 * "git worktree add" learned to run the post-checkout hook, just like
   "git checkout" does, after the initial checkout.

 * "git svn" has been updated to strip CRs in the commit messages, as
   recent versions of Subversion rejects them.

 * "git imap-send" did not correctly quote the folder name when
   making a request to the server, which has been corrected.

 * Error messages from "git rebase" have been somewhat cleaned up.

 * Git has been taught to support an https:// URL used for http.proxy
   when using recent versions of libcurl.

 * "git merge" learned to pay attention to merge.verifySignatures
   configuration variable and pretend as if '--verify-signatures'
   option was given from the command line.

 * "git describe" was taught to dig trees deeper to find a
   <commit-ish>:<path> that refers to a given blob object.

   Log Message:
   git: update to 2.14.2

   Fixes since v2.14.1

    * Because recent Git for Windows do come with a real msgfmt, the
      build procedure for git-gui has been updated to use it instead of a
      hand-rolled substitute.

    * "%C(color name)" in the pretty print format always produced ANSI
      color escape codes, which was an early design mistake.  They now
      honor the configuration (e.g. "color.ui = never") and also tty-ness
      of the output medium.

    * The http.{sslkey,sslCert} configuration variables are to be
      interpreted as a pathname that honors "~[username]/" prefix, but
      weren't, which has been fixed.

    * Numerous bugs in walking of reflogs via "log -g" and friends have
      been fixed.

    * "git commit" when seeing an totally empty message said "you did not
      edit the message", which is clearly wrong.  The message has been
      corrected.

    * When a directory is not readable, "gitweb" fails to build the
      project list.  Work this around by skipping such a directory.

    * A recently added test for the "credential-cache" helper revealed
      that EOF detection done around the time the connection to the cache
      daemon is torn down were flaky.  This was fixed by reacting to
      ECONNRESET and behaving as if we got an EOF.

    * Some versions of GnuPG fail to kill gpg-agent it auto-spawned
      and such a left-over agent can interfere with a test.  Work it
      around by attempting to kill one before starting a new test.

    * "git log --tag=no-such-tag" showed log starting from HEAD, which
      has been fixed---it now shows nothing.

    * The "tag.pager" configuration variable was useless for those who
      actually create tag objects, as it interfered with the use of an
      editor.  A new mechanism has been introduced for commands to enable
      pager depending on what operation is being carried out to fix this,
      and then "git tag -l" is made to run pager by default.

    * "git push --recurse-submodules $there HEAD:$target" was not
      propagated down to the submodules, but now it is.

    * Commands like "git rebase" accepted the --rerere-autoupdate option
      from the command line, but did not always use it.  This has been
      fixed.

    * "git clone --recurse-submodules --quiet" did not pass the quiet
      option down to submodules.

    * "git am -s" has been taught that some input may end with a trailer
      block that is not Signed-off-by: and it should refrain from adding
      an extra blank line before adding a new sign-off in such a case.

    * "git svn" used with "--localtime" option did not compute the tz
      offset for the timestamp in question and instead always used the
      current time, which has been corrected.

    * Memory leaks in a few error codepaths have been plugged.

    * bash 4.4 or newer gave a warning on NUL byte in command
      substitution done in "git stash"; this has been squelched.

    * "git grep -L" and "git grep --quiet -L" reported different exit
      codes; this has been corrected.

    * When handshake with a subprocess filter notices that the process
      asked for an unknown capability, Git did not report what program
      the offending subprocess was running.  This has been corrected.

    * "git apply" that is used as a better "patch -p1" failed to apply a
      taken from a file with CRLF line endings to a file with CRLF line
      endings.  The root cause was because it misused convert_to_git()
      that tried to do "safe-crlf" processing by looking at the index
      entry at the same path, which is a nonsense---in that mode, "apply"
      is not working on the data in (or derived from) the index at all.
      This has been fixed.

    * Killing "git merge --edit" before the editor returns control left
      the repository in a state with MERGE_MSG but without MERGE_HEAD,
      which incorrectly tells the subsequent "git commit" that there was
      a squash merge in progress.  This has been fixed.

    * "git archive" did not work well with pathspecs and the
      export-ignore attribute.

    * "git cvsserver" no longer is invoked by "git daemon" by default,
      as it is old and largely unmaintained.

    * Various Perl scripts did not use safe_pipe_capture() instead of
      backticks, leaving them susceptible to end-user input.  They have
      been corrected.

   git: updated to 2.14.3

   Git v2.14.3 Release Notes

   Fixes since v2.14.2

    * A helper function to read a single whole line into strbuf
      mistakenly triggered OOM error at EOF under certain conditions,
      which has been fixed.

    * In addition to "cc: <a@dd.re.ss> # cruft", "cc: a@dd.re.ss # cruft"
      was taught to "git send-email" as a valid way to tell it that it
      needs to also send a carbon copy to <a@dd.re.ss> in the trailer
      section.

    * Fix regression to "gitk --bisect" by a recent update.

    * Unlike "git commit-tree < file", "git commit-tree -F file" did not
      pass the contents of the file verbatim and instead completed an
      incomplete line at the end, if exists.  The latter has been updated
      to match the behaviour of the former.

    * "git archive", especially when used with pathspec, stored an empty
      directory in its output, even though Git itself never does so.
      This has been fixed.

    * API error-proofing which happens to also squelch warnings from GCC.

    * "git gc" tries to avoid running two instances at the same time by
      reading and writing pid/host from and to a lock file; it used to
      use an incorrect fscanf() format when reading, which has been
      corrected.

    * The test linter has been taught that we do not like "echo -e".

    * Code cmp.std.c nitpick.

    * "git describe --match" learned to take multiple patterns in v2.13
      series, but the feature ignored the patterns after the first one
      and did not work at all.  This has been fixed.

    * "git cat-file --textconv" started segfaulting recently, which
      has been corrected.

    * The built-in pattern to detect the "function header" for HTML did
      not match <H1>..<H6> elements without any attributes, which has
      been fixed.

    * "git mailinfo" was loose in decoding quoted printable and produced
      garbage when the two letters after the equal sign are not
      hexadecimal.  This has been fixed.

    * The documentation for '-X<option>' for merges was misleadingly
      written to suggest that "-s theirs" exists, which is not the case.

    * Spell the name of our system as "Git" in the output from
      request-pull script.

    * Fixes for a handful memory access issues identified by valgrind.

    * Backports a moral equivalent of 2015 fix to the poll emulation from
      the upstream gnulib to fix occasional breakages on HPE NonStop.

    * In the "--format=..." option of the "git for-each-ref" command (and
      its friends, i.e. the listing mode of "git branch/tag"), "%(atom:)"
      (e.g. "%(refname:)", "%(body:)" used to error out.  Instead, treat
      them as if the colon and an empty string that follows it were not
      there.

    * Users with "color.ui = always" in their configuration were broken
      by a recent change that made plumbing commands to pay attention to
      them as the patch created internally by "git add -p" were colored
      (heh) and made unusable.  This has been fixed.

    * "git branch -M a b" while on a branch that is completely unrelated
      to either branch a or branch b misbehaved when multiple worktree
      was in use.  This has been fixed.

    * "git fast-export" with -M/-C option issued "copy" instruction on a
      path that is simultaneously modified, which was incorrect.

    * The checkpoint command "git fast-import" did not flush updates to
      refs and marks unless at least one object was created since the
      last checkpoint, which has been corrected, as these things can
      happen without any new object getting created.

    * The scripts to drive TravisCI has been reorganized and then an
      optimization to avoid spending cycles on a branch whose tip is
      tagged has been implemented.

    * "git fetch <there> <src>:<dst>" allows an object name on the <src>
      side when the other side accepts such a request since Git v2.5, but
      the documentation was left stale.

    * A regression in 2.11 that made the code to read the list of
      alternate object stores overrun the end of the string has been
      fixed.

   Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.

git: update to 2.14.2

Fixes since v2.14.1

 * Because recent Git for Windows do come with a real msgfmt, the
   build procedure for git-gui has been updated to use it instead of a
   hand-rolled substitute.

 * "%C(color name)" in the pretty print format always produced ANSI
   color escape codes, which was an early design mistake.  They now
   honor the configuration (e.g. "color.ui = never") and also tty-ness
   of the output medium.

 * The http.{sslkey,sslCert} configuration variables are to be
   interpreted as a pathname that honors "~[username]/" prefix, but
   weren't, which has been fixed.

 * Numerous bugs in walking of reflogs via "log -g" and friends have
   been fixed.

 * "git commit" when seeing an totally empty message said "you did not
   edit the message", which is clearly wrong.  The message has been
   corrected.

 * When a directory is not readable, "gitweb" fails to build the
   project list.  Work this around by skipping such a directory.

 * A recently added test for the "credential-cache" helper revealed
   that EOF detection done around the time the connection to the cache
   daemon is torn down were flaky.  This was fixed by reacting to
   ECONNRESET and behaving as if we got an EOF.

 * Some versions of GnuPG fail to kill gpg-agent it auto-spawned
   and such a left-over agent can interfere with a test.  Work it
   around by attempting to kill one before starting a new test.

 * "git log --tag=no-such-tag" showed log starting from HEAD, which
   has been fixed---it now shows nothing.

 * The "tag.pager" configuration variable was useless for those who
   actually create tag objects, as it interfered with the use of an
   editor.  A new mechanism has been introduced for commands to enable
   pager depending on what operation is being carried out to fix this,
   and then "git tag -l" is made to run pager by default.

 * "git push --recurse-submodules $there HEAD:$target" was not
   propagated down to the submodules, but now it is.

 * Commands like "git rebase" accepted the --rerere-autoupdate option
   from the command line, but did not always use it.  This has been
   fixed.

 * "git clone --recurse-submodules --quiet" did not pass the quiet
   option down to submodules.

 * "git am -s" has been taught that some input may end with a trailer
   block that is not Signed-off-by: and it should refrain from adding
   an extra blank line before adding a new sign-off in such a case.

 * "git svn" used with "--localtime" option did not compute the tz
   offset for the timestamp in question and instead always used the
   current time, which has been corrected.

 * Memory leaks in a few error codepaths have been plugged.

 * bash 4.4 or newer gave a warning on NUL byte in command
   substitution done in "git stash"; this has been squelched.

 * "git grep -L" and "git grep --quiet -L" reported different exit
   codes; this has been corrected.

 * When handshake with a subprocess filter notices that the process
   asked for an unknown capability, Git did not report what program
   the offending subprocess was running.  This has been corrected.

 * "git apply" that is used as a better "patch -p1" failed to apply a
   taken from a file with CRLF line endings to a file with CRLF line
   endings.  The root cause was because it misused convert_to_git()
   that tried to do "safe-crlf" processing by looking at the index
   entry at the same path, which is a nonsense---in that mode, "apply"
   is not working on the data in (or derived from) the index at all.
   This has been fixed.

 * Killing "git merge --edit" before the editor returns control left
   the repository in a state with MERGE_MSG but without MERGE_HEAD,
   which incorrectly tells the subsequent "git commit" that there was
   a squash merge in progress.  This has been fixed.

 * "git archive" did not work well with pathspecs and the
   export-ignore attribute.

 * "git cvsserver" no longer is invoked by "git daemon" by default,
   as it is old and largely unmaintained.

 * Various Perl scripts did not use safe_pipe_capture() instead of
   backticks, leaving them susceptible to end-user input.  They have
   been corrected.

   Log Message:
   Git v2.13.3:

    * The "collision detecting" SHA-1 implementation shipped with 2.13.2
      was still broken on some platforms.  Update to the upstream code
      again to take their fix.

    * The 'diff-highlight' program (in contrib/) has been restructured
      for easier reuse by an external project 'diff-so-fancy'.

    * "git mergetool" learned to work around a wrapper MacOS X adds
      around underlying meld.

    * An example in documentation that does not work in multi worktree
      configuration has been corrected.

    * The pretty-format specifiers like '%h', '%t', etc. had an
      optimization that no longer works correctly.  In preparation/hope
      of getting it correctly implemented, first discard the optimization
      that is broken.

    * The code to pick up and execute command alias definition from the
      configuration used to switch to the top of the working tree and
      then come back when the expanded alias was executed, which was
      unnecessarilyl complex.  Attempt to simplify the logic by using the
      early-config mechanism that does not chdir around.

    * "git add -p" were updated in 2.12 timeframe to cope with custom
      core.commentchar but the implementation was buggy and a
      metacharacter like $ and * did not work.

    * Fix a recent regression to "git rebase -i" and add tests that would
      have caught it and others.

    * An unaligned 32-bit access in pack-bitmap code ahs been corrected.

    * Tighten error checks for invalid "git apply" input.

    * The split index code did not honor core.sharedrepository setting
      correctly.

    * The Makefile rule in contrib/subtree for building documentation
      learned to honour USE_ASCIIDOCTOR just like the main documentation
      set does.

    * A few tests that tried to verify the contents of push certificates
      did not use 'git rev-parse' to formulate the line to look for in
      the certificate correctly.

    * After "git branch --move" of the currently checked out branch, the
      code to walk the reflog of HEAD via "log -g" and friends
      incorrectly stopped at the reflog entry that records the renaming
      of the branch.

    * The rewrite of "git branch --list" using for-each-ref's internals
      that happened in v2.13 regressed its handling of color.branch.local;
      this has been fixed.

   Log Message:
   Git v2.13.4:

   * Update the character width tables.

   * A recent update broke an alias that contained an uppercase letter,
     which has been fixed.

   * On Cygwin, similar to Windows, "git push //server/share/repository"
     ought to mean a repository on a network share that can be accessed
     locally, but this did not work correctly due to stripping the double
     slashes at the beginning.

   * The progress meter did not give a useful output when we haven't had
     0.5 seconds to measure the throughput during the interval.  Instead
     show the overall throughput rate at the end, which is a much more
     useful number.

   * We run an early part of "git gc" that deals with refs before
     daemonising (and not under lock) even when running a background
     auto-gc, which caused multiple gc processes attempting to run the
     early part at the same time.  This is now prevented by running the
     early part also under the GC lock.

   Git 2.14 Release Notes
   ===========

   Backward compatibility notes and other notable changes.

    * Use of an empty string as a pathspec element that is used for
      'everything matches' is still warned and Git asks users to use a
      more explicit '.' for that instead.  The hope is that existing
      users will not mind this change, and eventually the warning can be
      turned into a hard error, upgrading the deprecation into removal of
      this (mis)feature.  That is not scheduled to happen in the upcoming
      release (yet).

    * Git now avoids blindly falling back to ".git" when the setup
      sequence said we are _not_ in Git repository.  A corner case that
      happens to work right now may be broken by a call to die("BUG").
      We've tried hard to locate such cases and fixed them, but there
      might still be cases that need to be addressed--bug reports are
      greatly appreciated.

    * The experiment to improve the hunk-boundary selection of textual
      diff output has finished, and the "indent heuristics" has now
      become the default.

    * Git can now be built with PCRE v2 instead of v1 of the PCRE
      library. Replace USE_LIBPCRE=YesPlease with USE_LIBPCRE2=YesPlease
      in existing build scripts to build against the new version.  As the
      upstream PCRE maintainer has abandoned v1 maintenance for all but
      the most critical bug fixes, use of v2 is recommended.

   Updates since v2.13
   -------------------

   UI, Workflows & Features

    * The colors in which "git status --short --branch" showed the names
      of the current branch and its remote-tracking branch are now
      configurable.

    * "git clone" learned the "--no-tags" option not to fetch all tags
      initially, and also set up the tagopt not to follow any tags in
      subsequent fetches.

    * "git archive --format=zip" learned to use zip64 extension when
      necessary to go beyond the 4GB limit.

    * "git reset" learned "--recurse-submodules" option.

    * "git diff --submodule=diff" now recurses into nested submodules.

    * "git repack" learned to accept the --threads=<n> option and pass it
      to pack-objects.

    * "git send-email" learned to run sendemail-validate hook to inspect
      and reject a message before sending it out.

    * There is no good reason why "git fetch $there $sha1" should fail
      when the $sha1 names an object at the tip of an advertised ref,
      even when the other side hasn't enabled allowTipSHA1InWant.

    * The "[includeIf "gitdir:$dir"] path=..." mechanism introduced in
      2.13.0 would canonicalize the path of the gitdir being matched,
      and did not match e.g. "gitdir:~/work/*" against a repo in
      "~/work/main" if "~/work" was a symlink to "/mnt/storage/work".
      Now we match both the resolved canonical path and what "pwd" would
      show. The include will happen if either one matches.

    * The "indent" heuristics is now the default in "diff". The
      diff.indentHeuristic configuration variable can be set to "false"
      for those who do not want it.

    * Many commands learned to pay attention to submodule.recurse
      configuration.

    * The convention for a command line is to follow "git cmdname
      --options" with revisions followed by an optional "--"
      disambiguator and then finally pathspecs.  When "--" is not there,
      we make sure early ones are all interpretable as revs (and do not
      look like paths) and later ones are the other way around.  A
      pathspec with "magic" (e.g. ":/p/a/t/h" that matches p/a/t/h from
      the top-level of the working tree, no matter what subdirectory you
      are working from) are conservatively judged as "not a path", which
      required disambiguation more often.  The command line parser
      learned to say "it's a pathspec" a bit more often when the syntax
      looks like so.

    * Update "perl-compatible regular expression" support to enable JIT
      and also allow linking with the newer PCRE v2 library.

    * "filter-branch" learned a pseudo filter "--setup" that can be used
      to define common functions/variables that can be used by other
      filters.

    * Using "git add d/i/r" when d/i/r is the top of the working tree of
      a separate repository would create a gitlink in the index, which
      would appear as a not-quite-initialized submodule to others.  We
      learned to give warnings when this happens.

    * "git status" learned to optionally give how many stash entries there
      are in its output.

    * "git status" has long shown essentially the same message as "git
      commit"; the message it gives while preparing for the root commit,
      i.e. "Initial commit", was hard to understand for some new users.
      Now it says "No commits yet" to stress more on the current status
      (rather than the commit the user is preparing for, which is more in
      line with the focus of "git commit").

    * "git send-email" now has --batch-size and --relogin-delay options
       which can be used to overcome limitations on SMTP servers that
       restrict on how many of e-mails can be sent in a single session.

    * An old message shown in the commit log template was removed, as it
      has outlived its usefulness.

    * "git pull --rebase --recurse-submodules" learns to rebase the
      branch in the submodules to an updated base.

    * "git log" learned -P as a synonym for --perl-regexp, "git grep"
      already had such a synonym.

    * "git log" didn't understand --regexp-ignore-case when combined with
      --perl-regexp. This has been fixed.

   Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

    * The default packed-git limit value has been raised on larger
      platforms to save "git fetch" from a (recoverable) failure while
      "gc" is running in parallel.

    * Code to update the cache-tree has been tightened so that we won't
      accidentally write out any 0{40} entry in the tree object.

    * Attempt to allow us notice "fishy" situation where we fail to
      remove the temporary directory used during the test.

    * Travis CI gained a task to format the documentation with both
      AsciiDoc and AsciiDoctor.

    * Some platforms have ulong that is smaller than time_t, and our
      historical use of ulong for timestamp would mean they cannot
      represent some timestamp that the platform allows.  Invent a
      separate and dedicated timestamp_t (so that we can distingiuish
      timestamps and a vanilla ulongs, which along is already a good
      move), and then declare uintmax_t is the type to be used as the
      timestamp_t.

    * We can trigger Windows auto-build tester (credits: Dscho &
      Microsoft) from our existing Travis CI tester now.

    * Conversion from uchar[20] to struct object_id continues.

    * Simplify parse_pathspec() codepath and stop it from looking at the
      default in-core index.

    * Add perf-test for wildmatch.

    * Code from "conversion using external process" codepath has been
      extracted to a separate sub-process.[ch] module.

    * When "git checkout", "git merge", etc. manipulates the in-core
      index, various pieces of information in the index extensions are
      discarded from the original state, as it is usually not the case
      that they are kept up-to-date and in-sync with the operation on the
      main index.  The untracked cache extension is copied across these
      operations now, which would speed up "git status" (as long as the
      cache is properly invalidated).

    * The internal implementation of "git grep" has seen some clean-up.

    * Update the C style recommendation for notes for translators, as
      recent versions of gettext tools can work with our style of
      multi-line comments.

    * The implementation of "ref" API around the "packed refs" have been
      cleaned up, in preparation for further changes.

    * The internal logic used in "git blame" has been libified to make it
      easier to use by cgit.

    * Our code often opens a path to an optional file, to work on its
      contents when we can successfully open it.  We can ignore a failure
      to open if such an optional file does not exist, but we do want to
      report a failure in opening for other reasons (e.g. we got an I/O
      error, or the file is there, but we lack the permission to open).

      The exact errors we need to ignore are ENOENT (obviously) and
      ENOTDIR (less obvious).  Instead of repeating comparison of errno
      with these two constants, introduce a helper function to do so.

    * We often try to open a file for reading whose existence is
      optional, and silently ignore errors from open/fopen; report such
      errors if they are not due to missing files.

    * When an existing repository is used for t/perf testing, we first
      create bit-for-bit copy of it, which may grab a transient state of
      the repository and freeze it into the repository used for testing,
      which then may cause Git operations to fail.  Single out "the index
      being locked" case and forcibly drop the lock from the copy.

    * Three instances of the same helper function have been consolidated
      to one.

    * "fast-import" uses a default pack chain depth that is consistent
      with other parts of the system.

    * A new test to show the interaction between the pattern [^a-z]
      (which matches '/') and a slash in a path has been added.  The
      pattern should not match the slash with "pathmatch", but should
      with "wildmatch".

    * The 'diff-highlight' program (in contrib/) has been restructured
      for easier reuse by an external project 'diff-so-fancy'.

    * A common pattern to free a piece of memory and assign NULL to the
      pointer that used to point at it has been replaced with a new
      FREE_AND_NULL() macro.

    * Traditionally, the default die() routine had a code to prevent it
      from getting called multiple times, which interacted badly when a
      threaded program used it (one downside is that the real error may
      be hidden and instead the only error message given to the user may
      end up being "die recursion detected", which is not very useful).

    * Introduce a "repository" object to eventually make it easier to
      work in multiple repositories (the primary focus is to work with
      the superproject and its submodules) in a single process.

    * Optimize "what are the object names already taken in an alternate
      object database?" query that is used to derive the length of prefix
      an object name is uniquely abbreviated to.

    * The hashmap API has been updated so that data to customize the
      behaviour of the comparison function can be specified at the time a
      hashmap is initialized.

    * The "collision detecting" SHA-1 implementation shipped with 2.13 is
      now integrated into git.git as a submodule (the first submodule to
      ship with git.git). Clone git.git with --recurse-submodules to get
      it. For now a non-submodule copy of the same code is also shipped
      as part of the tree.

    * A recent update made it easier to use "-fsanitize=" option while
      compiling but supported only one sanitize option.  Allow more than
      one to be combined, joined with a comma, like "make SANITIZE=foo,bar".

    * Use "p4 -G" to make "p4 changes" output more Python-friendly
      to parse.

    * We started using "%" PRItime, imitating "%" PRIuMAX and friends, as
      a way to format the internal timestamp value, but this does not
      play well with gettext(1) i18n framework, and causes "make pot"
      that is run by the l10n coordinator to create a broken po/git.pot
      file.  This is a possible workaround for that problem.

    * It turns out that Cygwin also needs the fopen() wrapper that
      returns failure when a directory is opened for reading.

Git 2.14 Release Notes
======================

Backward compatibility notes and other notable changes.

 * Use of an empty string as a pathspec element that is used for
   'everything matches' is still warned and Git asks users to use a
   more explicit '.' for that instead.  The hope is that existing
   users will not mind this change, and eventually the warning can be
   turned into a hard error, upgrading the deprecation into removal of
   this (mis)feature.  That is not scheduled to happen in the upcoming
   release (yet).

 * Git now avoids blindly falling back to ".git" when the setup
   sequence said we are _not_ in Git repository.  A corner case that
   happens to work right now may be broken by a call to die("BUG").
   We've tried hard to locate such cases and fixed them, but there
   might still be cases that need to be addressed--bug reports are
   greatly appreciated.

 * The experiment to improve the hunk-boundary selection of textual
   diff output has finished, and the "indent heuristics" has now
   become the default.

 * Git can now be built with PCRE v2 instead of v1 of the PCRE
   library. Replace USE_LIBPCRE=YesPlease with USE_LIBPCRE2=YesPlease
   in existing build scripts to build against the new version.  As the
   upstream PCRE maintainer has abandoned v1 maintenance for all but
   the most critical bug fixes, use of v2 is recommended.


Updates since v2.13
-------------------

UI, Workflows & Features

 * The colors in which "git status --short --branch" showed the names
   of the current branch and its remote-tracking branch are now
   configurable.

 * "git clone" learned the "--no-tags" option not to fetch all tags
   initially, and also set up the tagopt not to follow any tags in
   subsequent fetches.

 * "git archive --format=zip" learned to use zip64 extension when
   necessary to go beyond the 4GB limit.

 * "git reset" learned "--recurse-submodules" option.

 * "git diff --submodule=diff" now recurses into nested submodules.

 * "git repack" learned to accept the --threads=<n> option and pass it
   to pack-objects.

 * "git send-email" learned to run sendemail-validate hook to inspect
   and reject a message before sending it out.

 * There is no good reason why "git fetch $there $sha1" should fail
   when the $sha1 names an object at the tip of an advertised ref,
   even when the other side hasn't enabled allowTipSHA1InWant.

 * The "[includeIf "gitdir:$dir"] path=..." mechanism introduced in
   2.13.0 would canonicalize the path of the gitdir being matched,
   and did not match e.g. "gitdir:~/work/*" against a repo in
   "~/work/main" if "~/work" was a symlink to "/mnt/storage/work".
   Now we match both the resolved canonical path and what "pwd" would
   show. The include will happen if either one matches.

 * The "indent" heuristics is now the default in "diff". The
   diff.indentHeuristic configuration variable can be set to "false"
   for those who do not want it.

 * Many commands learned to pay attention to submodule.recurse
   configuration.

 * The convention for a command line is to follow "git cmdname
   --options" with revisions followed by an optional "--"
   disambiguator and then finally pathspecs.  When "--" is not there,
   we make sure early ones are all interpretable as revs (and do not
   look like paths) and later ones are the other way around.  A
   pathspec with "magic" (e.g. ":/p/a/t/h" that matches p/a/t/h from
   the top-level of the working tree, no matter what subdirectory you
   are working from) are conservatively judged as "not a path", which
   required disambiguation more often.  The command line parser
   learned to say "it's a pathspec" a bit more often when the syntax
   looks like so.

 * Update "perl-compatible regular expression" support to enable JIT
   and also allow linking with the newer PCRE v2 library.

 * "filter-branch" learned a pseudo filter "--setup" that can be used
   to define common functions/variables that can be used by other
   filters.

 * Using "git add d/i/r" when d/i/r is the top of the working tree of
   a separate repository would create a gitlink in the index, which
   would appear as a not-quite-initialized submodule to others.  We
   learned to give warnings when this happens.

 * "git status" learned to optionally give how many stash entries there
   are in its output.

 * "git status" has long shown essentially the same message as "git
   commit"; the message it gives while preparing for the root commit,
   i.e. "Initial commit", was hard to understand for some new users.
   Now it says "No commits yet" to stress more on the current status
   (rather than the commit the user is preparing for, which is more in
   line with the focus of "git commit").

 * "git send-email" now has --batch-size and --relogin-delay options
    which can be used to overcome limitations on SMTP servers that
    restrict on how many of e-mails can be sent in a single session.

 * An old message shown in the commit log template was removed, as it
   has outlived its usefulness.

 * "git pull --rebase --recurse-submodules" learns to rebase the
   branch in the submodules to an updated base.

 * "git log" learned -P as a synonym for --perl-regexp, "git grep"
   already had such a synonym.

 * "git log" didn't understand --regexp-ignore-case when combined with
   --perl-regexp. This has been fixed.

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The default packed-git limit value has been raised on larger
   platforms to save "git fetch" from a (recoverable) failure while
   "gc" is running in parallel.

 * Code to update the cache-tree has been tightened so that we won't
   accidentally write out any 0{40} entry in the tree object.

 * Attempt to allow us notice "fishy" situation where we fail to
   remove the temporary directory used during the test.

 * Travis CI gained a task to format the documentation with both
   AsciiDoc and AsciiDoctor.

 * Some platforms have ulong that is smaller than time_t, and our
   historical use of ulong for timestamp would mean they cannot
   represent some timestamp that the platform allows.  Invent a
   separate and dedicated timestamp_t (so that we can distingiuish
   timestamps and a vanilla ulongs, which along is already a good
   move), and then declare uintmax_t is the type to be used as the
   timestamp_t.

 * We can trigger Windows auto-build tester (credits: Dscho &
   Microsoft) from our existing Travis CI tester now.

 * Conversion from uchar[20] to struct object_id continues.

 * Simplify parse_pathspec() codepath and stop it from looking at the
   default in-core index.

 * Add perf-test for wildmatch.

 * Code from "conversion using external process" codepath has been
   extracted to a separate sub-process.[ch] module.

 * When "git checkout", "git merge", etc. manipulates the in-core
   index, various pieces of information in the index extensions are
   discarded from the original state, as it is usually not the case
   that they are kept up-to-date and in-sync with the operation on the
   main index.  The untracked cache extension is copied across these
   operations now, which would speed up "git status" (as long as the
   cache is properly invalidated).

 * The internal implementation of "git grep" has seen some clean-up.

 * Update the C style recommendation for notes for translators, as
   recent versions of gettext tools can work with our style of
   multi-line comments.

 * The implementation of "ref" API around the "packed refs" have been
   cleaned up, in preparation for further changes.

 * The internal logic used in "git blame" has been libified to make it
   easier to use by cgit.

 * Our code often opens a path to an optional file, to work on its
   contents when we can successfully open it.  We can ignore a failure
   to open if such an optional file does not exist, but we do want to
   report a failure in opening for other reasons (e.g. we got an I/O
   error, or the file is there, but we lack the permission to open).

   The exact errors we need to ignore are ENOENT (obviously) and
   ENOTDIR (less obvious).  Instead of repeating comparison of errno
   with these two constants, introduce a helper function to do so.

 * We often try to open a file for reading whose existence is
   optional, and silently ignore errors from open/fopen; report such
   errors if they are not due to missing files.

 * When an existing repository is used for t/perf testing, we first
   create bit-for-bit copy of it, which may grab a transient state of
   the repository and freeze it into the repository used for testing,
   which then may cause Git operations to fail.  Single out "the index
   being locked" case and forcibly drop the lock from the copy.

 * Three instances of the same helper function have been consolidated
   to one.

 * "fast-import" uses a default pack chain depth that is consistent
   with other parts of the system.

 * A new test to show the interaction between the pattern [^a-z]
   (which matches '/') and a slash in a path has been added.  The
   pattern should not match the slash with "pathmatch", but should
   with "wildmatch".

 * The 'diff-highlight' program (in contrib/) has been restructured
   for easier reuse by an external project 'diff-so-fancy'.

 * A common pattern to free a piece of memory and assign NULL to the
   pointer that used to point at it has been replaced with a new
   FREE_AND_NULL() macro.

 * Traditionally, the default die() routine had a code to prevent it
   from getting called multiple times, which interacted badly when a
   threaded program used it (one downside is that the real error may
   be hidden and instead the only error message given to the user may
   end up being "die recursion detected", which is not very useful).

 * Introduce a "repository" object to eventually make it easier to
   work in multiple repositories (the primary focus is to work with
   the superproject and its submodules) in a single process.

 * Optimize "what are the object names already taken in an alternate
   object database?" query that is used to derive the length of prefix
   an object name is uniquely abbreviated to.

 * The hashmap API has been updated so that data to customize the
   behaviour of the comparison function can be specified at the time a
   hashmap is initialized.

 * The "collision detecting" SHA-1 implementation shipped with 2.13 is
   now integrated into git.git as a submodule (the first submodule to
   ship with git.git). Clone git.git with --recurse-submodules to get
   it. For now a non-submodule copy of the same code is also shipped
   as part of the tree.

 * A recent update made it easier to use "-fsanitize=" option while
   compiling but supported only one sanitize option.  Allow more than
   one to be combined, joined with a comma, like "make SANITIZE=foo,bar".

 * Use "p4 -G" to make "p4 changes" output more Python-friendly
   to parse.

 * We started using "%" PRItime, imitating "%" PRIuMAX and friends, as
   a way to format the internal timestamp value, but this does not
   play well with gettext(1) i18n framework, and causes "make pot"
   that is run by the l10n coordinator to create a broken po/git.pot
   file.  This is a possible workaround for that problem.

 * It turns out that Cygwin also needs the fopen() wrapper that
   returns failure when a directory is opened for reading.

Git v2.13.1 Release Notes
=========================

Fixes since v2.13
-----------------

 * The Web interface to gmane news archive is long gone, even though
   the articles are still accessible via NTTP.  Replace the links with
   ones to public-inbox.org.  Because their message identification is
   based on the actual message-id, it is likely that it will be easier
   to migrate away from it if/when necessary.

 * Update tests to pass under GETTEXT_POISON (a mechanism to ensure
   that output strings that should not be translated are not
   translated by mistake), and tell TravisCI to run them.

 * Setting "log.decorate=false" in the configuration file did not take
   effect in v2.13, which has been corrected.

 * An earlier update to test 7400 needed to be skipped on CYGWIN.

 * Git sometimes gives an advice in a rhetorical question that does
   not require an answer, which can confuse new users and non native
   speakers.  Attempt to rephrase them.

 * "git read-tree -m" (no tree-ish) gave a nonsense suggestion "use
   --empty if you want to clear the index".  With "-m", such a request
   will still fail anyway, as you'd need to name at least one tree-ish
   to be merged.

 * The codepath in "git am" that is used when running "git rebase"
   leaked memory held for the log message of the commits being rebased.

 * "pack-objects" can stream a slice of an existing packfile out when
   the pack bitmap can tell that the reachable objects are all needed
   in the output, without inspecting individual objects.  This
   strategy however would not work well when "--local" and other
   options are in use, and need to be disabled.

 * Clarify documentation for include.path and includeIf.<condition>.path
   configuration variables.

 * Tag objects, which are not reachable from any ref, that point at
   missing objects were mishandled by "git gc" and friends (they
   should silently be ignored instead)

 * A few http:// links that are redirected to https:// in the
   documentation have been updated to https:// links.

 * Make sure our tests would pass when the sources are checked out
   with "platform native" line ending convention by default on
   Windows.  Some "text" files out tests use and the test scripts
   themselves that are meant to be run with /bin/sh, ought to be
   checked out with eol=LF even on Windows.

 * Fix memory leaks pointed out by Coverity (and people).

 * The receive-pack program now makes sure that the push certificate
   records the same set of push options used for pushing.

 * "git cherry-pick" and other uses of the sequencer machinery
   mishandled a trailer block whose last line is an incomplete line.
   This has been fixed so that an additional sign-off etc. are added
   after completing the existing incomplete line.

 * The shell completion script (in contrib/) learned "git stash" has
   a new "push" subcommand.

 * Travis CI gained a task to format the documentation with both
   AsciiDoc and AsciiDoctor.

 * Update the C style recommendation for notes for translators, as
   recent versions of gettext tools can work with our style of
   multi-line comments.

 * "git clone --config var=val" is a way to populate the
   per-repository configuration file of the new repository, but it did
   not work well when val is an empty string.  This has been fixed.

 * A few codepaths in "checkout" and "am" working on an unborn branch
   tried to access an uninitialized piece of memory.

 * "git for-each-ref --format=..." with %(HEAD) in the format used to
   resolve the HEAD symref as many times as it had processed refs,
   which was wasteful, and "git branch" shared the same problem.

 * "git interpret-trailers", when used as GIT_EDITOR for "git commit
   -v", looked for and appended to a trailer block at the very end,
   i.e. at the end of the "diff" output.  The command has been
   corrected to pay attention to the cut-mark line "commit -v" adds to
   the buffer---the real trailer block should appear just before it.

 * A test allowed both "git push" and "git receive-pack" on the other
   end write their traces into the same file.  This is OK on platforms
   that allows atomically appending to a file opened with O_APPEND,
   but on other platforms led to a mangled output, causing
   intermittent test failures.  This has been fixed by disabling
   traces from "receive-pack" in the test.

 * "foo\bar\baz" in "git fetch foo\bar\baz", even though there is no
   slashes in it, cannot be a nickname for a remote on Windows, as
   that is likely to be a pathname on a local filesystem.

 * The "collision detecting" SHA-1 implementation shipped with 2.13
   was quite broken on some big-endian platforms and/or platforms that
   do not like unaligned fetches.  Update to the upstream code which
   has already fixed these issues.

 * "git am -h" triggered a BUG().

 * The interaction of "url.*.insteadOf" and custom URL scheme's
   whitelisting is now documented better.

Git 2.13 Release Notes
======================
Backward compatibility notes.

 * Use of an empty string as a pathspec element that is used for
   'everything matches' is still warned and Git asks users to use a
   more explicit '.' for that instead.  The hope is that existing
   users will not mind this change, and eventually the warning can be
   turned into a hard error, upgrading the deprecation into removal of
   this (mis)feature.  That is not scheduled to happen in the upcoming
   release (yet).

 * The historical argument order "git merge <msg> HEAD <commit>..."
   has been deprecated for quite some time, and is now removed.

 * The default location "~/.git-credential-cache/socket" for the
   socket used to communicate with the credential-cache daemon has
   been moved to "~/.cache/git/credential/socket".

 * Git now avoids blindly falling back to ".git" when the setup
   sequence said we are _not_ in Git repository.  A corner case that
   happens to work right now may be broken by a call to die("BUG").
   We've tried hard to locate such cases and fixed them, but there
   might still be cases that need to be addressed--bug reports are
   greatly appreciated.

Updates since v2.12
-------------------
UI, Workflows & Features

 * "git describe" and "git name-rev" have been taught to take more
   than one refname patterns to restrict the set of refs to base their
   naming output on, and also learned to take negative patterns to
   name refs not to be used for naming via their "--exclude" option.

 * Deletion of a branch "foo/bar" could remove .git/refs/heads/foo
   once there no longer is any other branch whose name begins with
   "foo/", but we didn't do so so far.  Now we do.

 * When "git merge" detects a path that is renamed in one history
   while the other history deleted (or modified) it, it now reports
   both paths to help the user understand what is going on in the two
   histories being merged.

 * The <url> part in "http.<url>.<variable>" configuration variable
   can now be spelled with '*' that serves as wildcard.
   E.g. "http.https://*.example.com.proxy" can be used to specify the
   proxy used for https://a.example.com, https://b.example.com, etc.,
   i.e. any host in the example.com domain.

 * "git tag" did not leave useful message when adding a new entry to
   reflog; this was left unnoticed for a long time because refs/tags/*
   doesn't keep reflog by default.

 * The "negative" pathspec feature was somewhat more cumbersome to use
   than necessary in that its short-hand used "!" which needed to be
   escaped from shells, and it required "exclude from what?" specified.

 * The command line options for ssh invocation needs to be tweaked for
   some implementations of SSH (e.g. PuTTY plink wants "-P <port>"
   while OpenSSH wants "-p <port>" to specify port to connect to), and
   the variant was guessed when GIT_SSH environment variable is used
   to specify it.  The logic to guess now applies to the command
   specified by the newer GIT_SSH_COMMAND and also core.sshcommand
   configuration variable, and comes with an escape hatch for users to
   deal with misdetected cases.

Git v2.11.1 Release Notes
=========================

Fixes since v2.11
-----------------

 * The default Travis-CI configuration specifies newer P4 and GitLFS.

 * The character width table has been updated to match Unicode 9.0

 * Update the isatty() emulation for Windows by updating the previous
   hack that depended on internals of (older) MSVC runtime.

 * "git rev-parse --symbolic" failed with a more recent notation like
   "HEAD^-1" and "HEAD^!".

 * An empty directory in a working tree that can simply be nuked used
   to interfere while merging or cherry-picking a change to create a
   submodule directory there, which has been fixed..

 * The code in "git push" to compute if any commit being pushed in the
   superproject binds a commit in a submodule that hasn't been pushed
   out was overly inefficient, making it unusable even for a small
   project that does not have any submodule but have a reasonable
   number of refs.

 * "git push --dry-run --recurse-submodule=on-demand" wasn't
   "--dry-run" in the submodules.

 * The output from "git worktree list" was made in readdir() order,
   and was unstable.

 * mergetool.<tool>.trustExitCode configuration variable did not apply
   to built-in tools, but now it does.

 * "git p4" LFS support was broken when LFS stores an empty blob.

 * Fix a corner case in merge-recursive regression that crept in
   during 2.10 development cycle.

 * Update the error messages from the dumb-http client when it fails
   to obtain loose objects; we used to give sensible error message
   only upon 404 but we now forbid unexpected redirects that needs to
   be reported with something sensible.

 * When diff.renames configuration is on (and with Git 2.9 and later,
   it is enabled by default, which made it worse), "git stash"
   misbehaved if a file is removed and another file with a very
   similar content is added.

 * "git diff --no-index" did not take "--no-abbrev" option.

 * "git difftool --dir-diff" had a minor regression when started from
   a subdirectory, which has been fixed.

 * "git commit --allow-empty --only" (no pathspec) with dirty index
   ought to be an acceptable way to create a new commit that does not
   change any paths, but it was forbidden, perhaps because nobody
   needed it so far.

 * A pathname that begins with "//" or "\\" on Windows is special but
   path normalization logic was unaware of it.

 * "git pull --rebase", when there is no new commits on our side since
   we forked from the upstream, should be able to fast-forward without
   invoking "git rebase", but it didn't.

 * The way to specify hotkeys to "xxdiff" that is used by "git
   mergetool" has been modernized to match recent versions of xxdiff.

 * Unlike "git am --abort", "git cherry-pick --abort" moved HEAD back
   to where cherry-pick started while picking multiple changes, when
   the cherry-pick stopped to ask for help from the user, and the user
   did "git reset --hard" to a different commit in order to re-attempt
   the operation.

 * Code cleanup in shallow boundary computation.

 * A recent update to receive-pack to make it easier to drop garbage
   objects made it clear that GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES cannot
   have a pathname with a colon in it (no surprise!), and this in turn
   made it impossible to push into a repository at such a path.  This
   has been fixed by introducing a quoting mechanism used when
   appending such a path to the colon-separated list.

 * The function usage_msg_opt() has been updated to say "fatal:"
   before the custom message programs give, when they want to die
   with a message about wrong command line options followed by the
   standard usage string.

 * "git index-pack --stdin" needs an access to an existing repository,
   but "git index-pack file.pack" to generate an .idx file that
   corresponds to a packfile does not.

 * Fix for NDEBUG builds.

 * A lazy "git push" without refspec did not internally use a fully
   specified refspec to perform 'current', 'simple', or 'upstream'
   push, causing unnecessary "ambiguous ref" errors.

 * "git p4" misbehaved when swapping a directory and a symbolic link.

 * Even though an fix was attempted in Git 2.9.3 days, but running
   "git difftool --dir-diff" from a subdirectory never worked. This
   has been fixed.

 * "git p4" that tracks multile p4 paths imported a single changelist
   that touches files in these multiple paths as one commit, followed
   by many empty commits.  This has been fixed.

 * A potential but unlikely buffer overflow in Windows port has been
   fixed.

 * When the http server gives an incomplete response to a smart-http
   rpc call, it could lead to client waiting for a full response that
   will never come.  Teach the client side to notice this condition
   and abort the transfer.

 * Some platforms no longer understand "latin-1" that is still seen in
   the wild in e-mail headers; replace them with "iso-8859-1" that is
   more widely known when conversion fails from/to it.

 * Update the procedure to generate "tags" for developer support.

 * Update the definition of the MacOSX test environment used by
   TravisCI.

 * A few git-svn updates.

 * Compression setting for producing packfiles were spread across
   three codepaths, one of which did not honor any configuration.
   Unify these so that all of them honor core.compression and
   pack.compression variables the same way.

 * "git fast-import" sometimes mishandled while rebalancing notes
   tree, which has been fixed.

 * Recent update to the default abbreviation length that auto-scales
   lacked documentation update, which has been corrected.

 * Leakage of lockfiles in the config subsystem has been fixed.

 * It is natural that "git gc --auto" may not attempt to pack
   everything into a single pack, and there is no point in warning
   when the user has configured the system to use the pack bitmap,
   leading to disabling further "gc".

 * "git archive" did not read the standard configuration files, and
   failed to notice a file that is marked as binary via the userdiff
   driver configuration.

 * "git blame --porcelain" misidentified the "previous" <commit, path>
   pair (aka "source") when contents came from two or more files.

 * "git rebase -i" with a recent update started showing an incorrect
   count when squashing more than 10 commits.

 * "git <cmd> @{push}" on a detached HEAD used to segfault; it has
   been corrected to error out with a message.

 * Tighten a test to avoid mistaking an extended ERE regexp engine as
   a PRE regexp engine.

 * Typing ^C to pager, which usually does not kill it, killed Git and
   took the pager down as a collateral damage in certain process-tree
   structure.  This has been fixed.

Git v2.10.2 Release Notes
=========================

Fixes since v2.10.1
-------------------

 * The code that parses the format parameter of for-each-ref command
   has seen a micro-optimization.

 * The "graph" API used in "git log --graph" miscounted the number of
   output columns consumed so far when drawing a padding line, which
   has been fixed; this did not affect any existing code as nobody
   tried to write anything after the padding on such a line, though.

 * Almost everybody uses DEFAULT_ABBREV to refer to the default
   setting for the abbreviation, but "git blame" peeked into
   underlying variable bypassing the macro for no good reason.

 * Doc update to clarify what "log -3 --reverse" does.

 * An author name, that spelled a backslash-quoted double quote in the
   human readable part "My \"double quoted\" name", was not unquoted
   correctly while applying a patch from a piece of e-mail.

 * The original command line syntax for "git merge", which was "git
   merge <msg> HEAD <parent>...", has been deprecated for quite some
   time, and "git gui" was the last in-tree user of the syntax.  This
   is finally fixed, so that we can move forward with the deprecation.

 * Codepaths that read from an on-disk loose object were too loose in
   validating what they are reading is a proper object file and
   sometimes read past the data they read from the disk, which has
   been corrected.  H/t to Gustavo Grieco for reporting.

 * "git worktree", even though it used the default_abbrev setting that
   ought to be affected by core.abbrev configuration variable, ignored
   the variable setting.  The command has been taught to read the
   default set of configuration variables to correct this.

 * A low-level function verify_packfile() was meant to show errors
   that were detected without dying itself, but under some conditions
   it didn't and died instead, which has been fixed.

 * When "git fetch" tries to find where the history of the repository
   it runs in has diverged from what the other side has, it has a
   mechanism to avoid digging too deep into irrelevant side branches.
   This however did not work well over the "smart-http" transport due
   to a design bug, which has been fixed.

 * When we started cURL to talk to imap server when a new enough
   version of cURL library is available, we forgot to explicitly add
   imap(s):// before the destination.  To some folks, that didn't work
   and the library tried to make HTTP(s) requests instead.

 * The ./configure script generated from configure.ac was taught how
   to detect support of SSL by libcurl better.

 * http.emptyauth configuration is a way to allow an empty username to
   pass when attempting to authenticate using mechanisms like
   Kerberos.  We took an unspecified (NULL) username and sent ":"
   (i.e. no username, no password) to CURLOPT_USERPWD, but did not do
   the same when the username is explicitly set to an empty string.

 * "git clone" of a local repository can be done at the filesystem
   level, but the codepath did not check errors while copying and
   adjusting the file that lists alternate object stores.

 * Documentation for "git commit" was updated to clarify that "commit
   -p <paths>" adds to the current contents of the index to come up
   with what to commit.

 * A stray symbolic link in $GIT_DIR/refs/ directory could make name
   resolution loop forever, which has been corrected.

 * The "submodule.<name>.path" stored in .gitmodules is never copied
   to .git/config and such a key in .git/config has no meaning, but
   the documentation described it and submodule.<name>.url next to
   each other as if both belong to .git/config.  This has been fixed.

 * Recent git allows submodule.<name>.branch to use a special token
   "." instead of the branch name; the documentation has been updated
   to describe it.

 * In a worktree connected to a repository elsewhere, created via "git
   worktree", "git checkout" attempts to protect users from confusion
   by refusing to check out a branch that is already checked out in
   another worktree.  However, this also prevented checking out a
   branch, which is designated as the primary branch of a bare
   reopsitory, in a worktree that is connected to the bare
   repository.  The check has been corrected to allow it.

 * "git rebase" immediately after "git clone" failed to find the fork
   point from the upstream.

 * When fetching from a remote that has many tags that are irrelevant
   to branches we are following, we used to waste way too many cycles
   when checking if the object pointed at by a tag (that we are not
   going to fetch!) exists in our repository too carefully.

 * The Travis CI configuration we ship ran the tests with --verbose
   option but this risks non-TAP output that happens to be "ok" to be
   misinterpreted as TAP signalling a test that passed.  This resulted
   in unnecessary failure.  This has been corrected by introducing a
   new mode to run our tests in the test harness to send the verbose
   output separately to the log file.

 * Some AsciiDoc formatter mishandles a displayed illustration with
   tabs in it.  Adjust a few of them in merge-base documentation to
   work around them.

Also contains minor documentation updates and code clean-ups.

Update git to 2.9.2.

Fixes since v2.9.1
------------------

 * A fix merged to v2.9.1 had a few tests that are not meant to be
   run on platforms without 64-bit long, which caused unnecessary
   test failures on them because we didn't detect the platform and
   skip them.  These tests are now skipped on platforms that they
   are not applicable to.

Fixes since v2.9
----------------

 * When "git daemon" is run without --[init-]timeout specified, a
   connection from a client that silently goes offline can hang around
   for a long time, wasting resources.  The socket-level KEEPALIVE has
   been enabled to allow the OS to notice such failed connections.

 * The commands in `git log` family take %C(auto) in a custom format
   string.  This unconditionally turned the color on, ignoring
   --no-color or with --color=auto when the output is not connected to
   a tty; this was corrected to make the format truly behave as
   "auto".

 * "git rev-list --count" whose walk-length is limited with "-n"
   option did not work well with the counting optimized to look at the
   bitmap index.

 * "git show -W" (extend hunks to cover the entire function, delimited
   by lines that match the "funcname" pattern) used to show the entire
   file when a change added an entire function at the end of the file,
   which has been fixed.

 * The documentation set has been updated so that literal commands,
   configuration variables and environment variables are consistently
   typeset in fixed-width font and bold in manpages.

 * "git svn propset" subcommand that was added in 2.3 days is
   documented now.

 * The documentation tries to consistently spell "GPG"; when
   referring to the specific program name, "gpg" is used.

 * "git reflog" stopped upon seeing an entry that denotes a branch
   creation event (aka "unborn"), which made it appear as if the
   reflog was truncated.

 * The git-prompt scriptlet (in contrib/) was not friendly with those
   who uses "set -u", which has been fixed.

 * A codepath that used alloca(3) to place an unbounded amount of data
   on the stack has been updated to avoid doing so.

 * "git update-index --add --chmod=+x file" may be usable as an escape
   hatch, but not a friendly thing to force for people who do need to
   use it regularly.  "git add --chmod=+x file" can be used instead.

 * Build improvements for gnome-keyring (in contrib/)

 * "git status" used to say "working directory" when it meant "working
   tree".

 * Comments about misbehaving FreeBSD shells have been clarified with
   the version number (9.x and before are broken, newer ones are OK).

 * "git cherry-pick A" worked on an unborn branch, but "git
   cherry-pick A..B" didn't.

 * "git add -i/-p" learned to honor diff.compactionHeuristic
   experimental knob, so that the user can work on the same hunk split
   as "git diff" output.

 * "log --graph --format=" learned that "%>|(N)" specifies the width
   relative to the terminal's left edge, not relative to the area to
   draw text that is to the right of the ancestry-graph section.  It
   also now accepts negative N that means the column limit is relative
   to the right border.

 * The ownership rule for the piece of memory that hold references to
   be fetched in "git fetch" was screwy, which has been cleaned up.

 * "git bisect" makes an internal call to "git diff-tree" when
   bisection finds the culprit, but this call did not initialize the
   data structure to pass to the diff-tree API correctly.

 * Formats of the various data (and how to validate them) where we use
   GPG signature have been documented.

 * Fix an unintended regression in v2.9 that breaks "clone --depth"
   that recurses down to submodules by forcing the submodules to also
   be cloned shallowly, which many server instances that host upstream
   of the submodules are not prepared for.

 * Fix unnecessarily waste in the idiomatic use of ': ${VAR=default}'
   to set the default value, without enclosing it in double quotes.

 * Some platform-specific code had non-ANSI strict declarations of C
   functions that do not take any parameters, which has been
   corrected.

 * The internal code used to show local timezone offset is not
   prepared to handle timestamps beyond year 2100, and gave a
   bogus offset value to the caller.  Use a more benign looking
   +0000 instead and let "git log" going in such a case, instead
   of aborting.

 * One among four invocations of readlink(1) in our test suite has
   been rewritten so that the test can run on systems without the
   command (others are in valgrind test framework and t9802).

 * t/perf needs /usr/bin/time with GNU extension; the invocation of it
   is updated to "gtime" on Darwin.

 * A bug, which caused "git p4" while running under verbose mode to
   report paths that are omitted due to branch prefix incorrectly, has
   been fixed; the command said "Ignoring file outside of prefix" for
   paths that are _inside_.

 * The top level documentation "git help git" still pointed at the
   documentation set hosted at now-defunct google-code repository.
   Update it to point to https://git.github.io/htmldocs/git.html
   instead.

Also contains minor documentation updates and code clean-ups.

Changes 2.7.3:

* Traditionally, the tests that try commands that work on the
  contents in the working tree were named with "worktree" in their
  filenames, but with the recent addition of "git worktree"
  subcommand, whose tests are also named similarly, it has become
  harder to tell them apart.  The traditional tests have been renamed
  to use "work-tree" instead in an attempt to differentiate them.

* Many codepaths forget to check return value from git_config_set();
  the function is made to die() to make sure we do not proceed when
  setting a configuration variable failed.

* Handling of errors while writing into our internal asynchronous
  process has been made more robust, which reduces flakiness in our
  tests.

* "git show 'HEAD:Foo[BAR]Baz'" did not interpret the argument as a
  rev, i.e. the object named by the the pathname with wildcard
  characters in a tree object.

* "git rev-parse --git-common-dir" used in the worktree feature
  misbehaved when run from a subdirectory.

* The "v(iew)" subcommand of the interactive "git am -i" command was
  broken in 2.6.0 timeframe when the command was rewritten in C.

* "git merge-tree" used to mishandle "both sides added" conflict with
  its own "create a fake ancestor file that has the common parts of
  what both sides have added and do a 3-way merge" logic; this has
  been updated to use the usual "3-way merge with an empty blob as
  the fake common ancestor file" approach used in the rest of the
  system.

* The memory ownership rule of fill_textconv() API, which was a bit
  tricky, has been documented a bit better.

* The documentation did not clearly state that the 'simple' mode is
  now the default for "git push" when push.default configuration is
  not set.

* Recent versions of GNU grep are pickier when their input contains
  arbitrary binary data, which some of our tests uses.  Rewrite the
  tests to sidestep the problem.

* A helper function "git submodule" uses since v2.7.0 to list the
  modules that match the pathspec argument given to its subcommands
  (e.g. "submodule add <repo> <path>") has been fixed.

* "git config section.var value" to set a value in per-repository
  configuration file failed when it was run outside any repository,
  but didn't say the reason correctly.

* The code to read the pack data using the offsets stored in the pack
  idx file has been made more carefully check the validity of the
  data in the idx.

Update to 2.4.5

Changelog:
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
clean-ups.


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
   concepts.

 * 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
clean-ups.

   when 'promptvars' option is disabled in bash or PROMPT_SUBST is

Changes 1.8.5:

Foreign interfaces, subsystems and ports.

 * The HTTP transport, when talking GSS-Negotiate, uses "100
   Continue" response to avoid having to rewind and resend a large
   payload, which may not be always doable.

 * Various bugfixes to remote-bzr and remote-hg (in contrib/).

 * The build procedure is aware of MirBSD now.

 * Various "git p4", "git svn" and "gitk" updates.


UI, Workflows & Features

 * Fetching from a shallowly-cloned repository used to be forbidden,
   primarily because the codepaths involved were not carefully vetted
   and we did not bother supporting such usage. This release attempts
   to allow object transfer out of a shallowly-cloned repository in a
   more controlled way (i.e. the receiver becomes a shallow repository
   with a truncated history).

 * Just like we give a reasonable default for "less" via the LESS
   environment variable, we now specify a reasonable default for "lv"
   via the "LV" environment variable when spawning the pager.

 * Two-level configuration variable names in "branch.*" and "remote.*"
   hierarchies, whose variables are predominantly three-level, were
   not completed by hitting a <TAB> in bash and zsh completions.

 * Fetching a 'frotz' branch with "git fetch", while a 'frotz/nitfol'
   remote-tracking branch from an earlier fetch was still there, would
   error out, primarily because the command was not told that it is
   allowed to lose any information on our side.  "git fetch --prune"
   now can be used to remove 'frotz/nitfol' to make room for fetching and
   storing the 'frotz' remote-tracking branch.

 * "diff.orderfile=<file>" configuration variable can be used to
   pretend as if the "-O<file>" option were given from the command
   line of "git diff", etc.

 * The negative pathspec syntax allows "git log -- . ':!dir'" to tell
   us "I am interested in everything but 'dir' directory".

 * "git difftool" shows how many different paths there are in total,
   and how many of them have been shown so far, to indicate progress.

 * "git push origin master" used to push our 'master' branch to update
   the 'master' branch at the 'origin' repository.  This has been
   enhanced to use the same ref mapping "git push origin" would use to
   determine what ref at the 'origin' to be updated with our 'master'.
   For example, with this configuration

   [remote "origin"]
      push = refs/heads/*:refs/review/*

   that would cause "git push origin" to push out our local branches
   to corresponding refs under refs/review/ hierarchy at 'origin',
   "git push origin master" would update 'refs/review/master' over
   there.  Alternatively, if push.default is set to 'upstream' and our
   'master' is set to integrate with 'topic' from the 'origin' branch,
   running "git push origin" while on our 'master' would update their
   'topic' branch, and running "git push origin master" while on any
   of our branches does the same.

 * "gitweb" learned to treat ref hierarchies other than refs/heads as
   if they are additional branch namespaces (e.g. refs/changes/ in
   Gerrit).

 * "git for-each-ref --format=..." learned a few formatting directives;
   e.g. "%(color:red)%(HEAD)%(color:reset) %(refname:short) %(subject)".

 * The command string given to "git submodule foreach" is passed
   directly to the shell, without being eval'ed.  This is a backward
   incompatible change that may break existing users.

 * "git log" and friends learned the "--exclude=<glob>" option, to
   allow people to say "list history of all branches except those that
   match this pattern" with "git log --exclude='*/*' --branches".

 * "git rev-parse --parseopt" learned a new "--stuck-long" option to
   help scripts parse options with an optional parameter.

 * The "--tags" option to "git fetch" no longer tells the command to
   fetch _only_ the tags. It instead fetches tags _in addition to_
   what are fetched by the same command line without the option.

Add a patch from the git mailing list fixing a problem with 'git svn':

git-svn: workaround for a bug in svn serf backend

Subversion serf backend in versions 1.8.5 and below has a bug that the
function creating the descriptor of a file change -- add_file() --
doesn't make a copy of its 3d argument when storing it on the returned
descriptor.  As a result, by the time this field is used (in
transactions of file copying or renaming) it may well be released.

This patch works around this bug, by storing the value to be passed as
the 3d argument to add_file() in a local variable with the same scope as
the file change descriptor, making sure their lifetime is the same.

Changes 1.8.4.1:

 * Some old versions of bash do not grok some constructs like
   'printf -v varname' which the prompt and completion code started
   to use recently.  The completion and prompt scripts have been
   adjusted to work better with these old versions of bash.

 * In FreeBSD's and NetBSD's "sh", a return in a dot script in a
   function returns from the function, not only in the dot script,
   breaking "git rebase" on these platforms (regression introduced
   in 1.8.4-rc1).

 * "git rebase -i" and other scripted commands were feeding a
   random, data dependant error message to 'echo' and expecting it
   to come out literally.

 * Setting the "submodule.<name>.path" variable to the empty
   "true" caused the configuration parser to segfault.

 * Output from "git log --full-diff -- <pathspec>" looked strange
   because comparison was done with the previous ancestor that
   touched the specified <pathspec>, causing the patches for paths
   outside the pathspec to show more than the single commit has
   changed.

 * The auto-tag-following code in "git fetch" tries to reuse the
   same transport twice when the serving end does not cooperate and
   does not give tags that point to commits that are asked for as
   part of the primary transfer.  Unfortunately, Git-aware transport
   helper interface is not designed to be used more than once, hence
   this did not work over smart-http transfer.  Fixed.

 * Send a large request to read(2)/write(2) as a smaller but still
   reasonably large chunks, which would improve the latency when the
   operation needs to be killed and incidentally works around broken
   64-bit systems that cannot take a 2GB write or read in one go.

 * A ".mailmap" file that ends with an incomplete line, when read
   from a blob, was not handled properly.

 * The recent "short-cut clone connectivity check" topic broke a
   shallow repository when a fetch operation tries to auto-follow
   tags.

 * When send-email comes up with an error message to die with upon
   failure to start an SSL session, it tried to read the error
   string from a wrong place.

 * A call to xread() was used without a loop to cope with short
   read in the codepath to stream large blobs to a pack.

 * On platforms with fgetc() and friends defined as macros, the
   configuration parser did not compile.

 * New versions of MediaWiki introduced a new API for returning
   more than 500 results in response to a query, which would cause
   the MediaWiki remote helper to go into an infinite loop.

 * Subversion's serf access method (the only one available in
   Subversion 1.8) for http and https URLs in skelta mode tells its
   caller to open multiple files at a time, which made "git svn
   fetch" complain that "Temp file with moniker 'svn_delta' already
   in use" instead of fetching.

Also contains a handful of trivial code clean-ups, documentation
updates, updates to the test suite, etc.

Reimport scmgit-base as git-base-1.8.4 in devel/git-base.

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system
designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with
speed and efficiency.

Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast
performance. It outclasses SCM tools like Subversion, CVS, Perforce,
and ClearCase with features like cheap local branching, convenient
staging areas, and multiple workflows.

This package contains only the git program (and subcommands).  It does
not contain man pages or the tk-based repository browser.

This form allows you to request diff's between any two revisions of a file. You may select a symbolic revision name using the selection box or you may type in a numeric name using the type-in text box.
