Wed Sep  8 13:40:27 UTC 2021 - Danilo Spinella <>

- Fix CVE-2021-40330 git_connect_git in connect.c allows a repository
  path to contain a newline character, which may result in unexpected
  cross-protocol requests (CVE-2021-40330, bsc#1189992)

- Remove deprecated "syslog" option from git-daemon.service (bsc#1185147)

Thu Mar  4 15:32:35 UTC 2021 - Markéta Machová <>

- On case-insensitive filesystems, with support for symbolic links,
  if Git is configured globally to apply delay-capable clean/smudge
  filters (such as Git LFS), Git could be fooled into running
  remote code during a clone. (bsc#1183026, CVE-2021-21300)

- Protocol v2 in_vain fixes (bsc#1170741, bsc#1170939).
  Dropped: Revert-fetch-default-to-protocol-version-2.patch
  Added:   0001-fetch-pack-return-enum-from-process_acks.patch

Mon Apr 27 13:36:27 UTC 2020 - Michal Suchanek <>

- Add back SuSEfirewall2 support needed for SLE12 (bsc#1170302).

Tue Apr 21 19:41:46 UTC 2020 - Michal Suchanek <>

- With recent switch to protocol v2 people are reporting fetches transferring
  unreasonable amount of data. Upstream proposes switching the protocol back
  until the issue is properly diagnosed. The regression is problematic for
  people with lower network connection speed (bsc#1170741).
  Added: Revert-fetch-default-to-protocol-version-2.patch

Mon Apr 20 18:35:15 UTC 2020 - Andreas Stieger <>

- git 2.26.2:
  * CVE-2020-11008: Specially crafted URLs may have tricked the

Tue Apr 14 18:32:57 UTC 2020 - Andreas Stieger <>

- git 2.26.1:
  * CVE-2020-5260: Specially crafted URLs with newline characters
    could have been used to make the Git client to send credential
    information for a wrong host to the attacker's site boo#1168930

Mon Mar 23 16:45:06 UTC 2020 - Andreas Stieger <>

- git 2.26.0 (bsc#1167890, jsc#SLE-11608):
  * "git rebase" now uses a different backend that is based on the
    'merge' machinery by default. The 'rebase.backend' configuration
     variable reverts to old behaviour when set to  'apply'
  * Improved handling of sparse checkouts
  * Improvements to many commands and internal features

Thu Mar 19 12:22:22 UTC 2020 - Andreas Stieger <>

- git 2.25.2:
  * bug fixes to various subcommands in specific operations

Mon Feb 17 09:53:55 UTC 2020 - Andreas Stieger <>

- git 2.25.1:
  * "git commit" now honors advise.statusHints
  * various updates, bug fixes and documentation updates

Tue Jan 14 14:22:10 UTC 2020 - Marketa Calabkova <>

- git 2.25.0
  * 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
  * 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.
  * Test updates to prepare for SHA-2 transition continues.
  * Redo "git name-rev" to avoid recursive calls.
  * 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.
  * HTTP transport had possible allocator/deallocator mismatch, which
    has been corrected.
 - dropped patch git-skip-test-s390x-aarch64-fail.patch (bsc#1156651)
   * upstream maintainers have skipped the test themselves

Wed Dec 11 06:37:34 UTC 2019 - Andreas Stieger <>

- git 2.24.1:
  * CVE-2019-1348: The --export-marks option of fast-import is
    exposed also via the in-stream command feature export-marks=...
    and it allows overwriting arbitrary paths (boo#1158785)
  * CVE-2019-1349: on Windows, when submodules are cloned
    recursively, under certain circumstances Git could be fooled
    into using the same Git directory twice (boo#1158787)
  * CVE-2019-1350: Incorrect quoting of command-line arguments
    allowed remote code execution during a recursive clone in
    conjunction with SSH URLs (boo#1158788)
  * CVE-2019-1351: on Windows mistakes drive letters outside of
    the US-English alphabet as relative paths (boo#1158789)
  * CVE-2019-1352: on Windows was unaware of NTFS Alternate Data
    Streams (boo#1158790)
  * CVE-2019-1353: when run in the Windows Subsystem for Linux
    while accessing a working directory on a regular Windows
    drive, none of the NTFS protections were active (boo#1158791)
  * CVE-2019-1354: on Windows refuses to write tracked files with
    filenames that contain backslashes (boo#1158792)
  * CVE-2019-1387: Recursive clones vulnerability that is caused
    by too-lax validation of submodule names, allowing very
    targeted attacks via remote code execution in recursive
    clones (boo#1158793)
  * CVE-2019-19604: a recursive clone followed by a submodule
    update could execute code contained within the repository
    without the user explicitly having asked for that (boo#1158795)

Mon Nov  4 09:28:56 UTC 2019 - Marketa Calabkova <>

- git 2.24.0
  * The command line parser learned "--end-of-options" notation.
  * 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.
  * fixes and improvements to UI, workflow and features, bash completion fixes
- modified patch 0001-DOC-Move-to-DocBook-5-when-using-asciidoctor.patch
  * part of it merged upstream
  * the Makefile attempted to download some documentation, banned

- Complete (but maybe a bit too generous) fix of bsc#1112230

Thu Oct  3 08:51:28 UTC 2019 - Marketa Calabkova <>

- These patches have been merged upstream a long time ago, no longer needed:
  * 0001-submodule-helper-use-to-signal-end-of-clone-options.patch

  * 0003-submodule-config-ban-submodule-paths-that-start-with.patch
  * git-mark-path-lookup-errors.patch

Sun Aug 18 15:24:45 UTC 2019 - Andreas Stieger <>

- git 2.23.0:
  * 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
  * The "git log" command by default behaves as if the --mailmap
    option was given.
  * fixes and improvements to UI, workflow and features

Wed Aug 14 11:21:43 UTC 2019 - Marketa Calabkova <>

- git 2.22.1
  * 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
  * "git worktree add" used to fail when another worktree connected to
  the same repository was corrupt, 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 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.
  * Update to Unicode 12.1 width table.
  * "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
  * "git fetch" into a lazy clone forgot to fetch base objects that are
  necessary to complete delta in a thin packfile, which has been
  * The URL decoding code has been updated to avoid going past the end
  of the string while parsing %-<hex>-<hex> sequence.
  * "git clean" silently skipped a path when it cannot lstat() it; now
  it gives a warning.
  * "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.
  * Many more bugfixes and code cleanups.

Wed Jul 24 09:17:31 UTC 2019 -

- removal of SuSEfirewall2 service, since SuSEfirewall2 has been replaced by
  firewalld, see [1].


Mon Jul 15 12:02:09 UTC 2019 - Marketa Calabkova <>

- partial fix for bsc#1112230 (git instaweb gives 500 error)

Mon Jun 10 14:04:52 UTC 2019 - Marketa Calabkova <>

- git 2.22.0 
  * The filter specification "--filter=sparse:path=<path>" used to
  create a lazy/partial clone has been removed. Using a blob that is
  part of the project as sparse specification is still supported with
  the "--filter=sparse:oid=<blob>" option
  * "git checkout --no-overlay" can be used to trigger a new mode of
  checking out paths out of the tree-ish, that allows paths that
  match the pathspec that are in the current index and working tree
  and are not in the tree-ish.
  * Four new configuration variables {author,committer}.{name,email}
  have been introduced to override user.{name,email} in more specific
  * "git branch" learned a new subcommand "--show-current".
  * The command line completion (in contrib/) has been taught to
  complete more subcommand parameters.
  * The completion helper code now pays attention to repository-local
  configuration (when available), which allows --list-cmds to honour
  a repository specific setting of completion.commands, for example.
  * The list of conflicted paths shown in the editor while concluding a
  conflicted merge was shown above the scissors line when the
  clean-up mode is set to "scissors", even though it was commented
  out just like the list of updated paths and other information to
  help the user explain the merge better.
  * "git rebase" that was reimplemented in C did not set ORIG_HEAD
  correctly, which has been corrected.
  * "git worktree add" used to do a "find an available name with stat
  and then mkdir", which is race-prone. This has been fixed by using
  mkdir and reacting to EEXIST in a loop. 
- Removed upstreamed patch worktree-fix-worktree-add-race.patch

- Add 0001-DOC-Move-to-DocBook-5-when-using-asciidoctor.patch: Move

- update git-web AppArmor profile for bash and tar usrMerge (boo#1132350)

Mon Feb 25 09:56:24 UTC 2019 - Marketa Calabkova <>

- git 2.21.0
  * Historically, the "-m" (mainline) option can only be used for "git
    cherry-pick" and "git revert" when working with a merge commit.
    This version of Git no longer warns or errors out when working with
    a single-parent commit, as long as the argument to the "-m" option
    is 1 (i.e. it has only one parent, and the request is to pick or
    revert relative to that first parent). Scripts that relied on the
    behaviour may get broken with this change.
  * Small fixes and features for fast-export and fast-import.
  * The "http.version" configuration variable can be used with recent
    enough versions of cURL library to force the version of HTTP used
    to talk when fetching and pushing.
  * "git push $there $src:$dst" rejects when $dst is not a fully
    qualified refname and it is not clear what the end user meant.
  * Update "git multimail" from the upstream.
  * A new date format "--date=human" that morphs its output depending
    on how far the time is from the current time has been introduced.
    "--date=auto:human" can be used to use this new format (or any
    existing format) when the output is going to the pager or to the
    terminal, and otherwise the default format.

- Do not BuildRequire apache2:
  + it is only in the build chain for the directory ownership.
    Let's just own the directories ourselves.
  + This actually also fixes the issue that installing, then
    uninstalling git-web, without apache2 being present on the
    machine, leaves those directories stale on the disk.

- git 2.20.1:
  * portability fixes
  * "git help -a" did not work well when an overly long alias was
  * no longer squelched an error message when the run_command API
    failed to run a missing command

Mon Dec 10 11:31:04 UTC 2018 - Marketa Calabkova <>

- git 2.20.0
 * "git help -a" now gives verbose output (same as "git help -av").
   Those who want the old output may say "git help --no-verbose -a"..
 * "git send-email" learned to grab address-looking string on any
   trailer whose name ends with "-by".
 * "git format-patch" learned new "--interdiff" and "--range-diff"
   options to explain the difference between this version and the
   previous attempt in the cover letter (or after the three-dashes as
   a comment).
 * Developer builds now use -Wunused-function compilation option.
 * Fix a bug in which the same path could be registered under multiple
   worktree entries if the path was missing (for instance, was removed
   manually).  Also, as a convenience, expand the number of cases in
   which --force is applicable.
 * The overly large Documentation/config.txt file have been split into
   million little pieces.  This potentially allows each individual piece
   to be included into the manual page of the command it affects more easily.
 * Malformed or crafted data in packstream can make our code attempt
   to read or write past the allocated buffer and abort, instead of
   reporting an error, which has been fixed.
 * Fix for a long-standing bug that leaves the index file corrupt when
   it shrinks during a partial commit.
 * "git merge" and "git pull" that merges into an unborn branch used
   to completely ignore "--verify-signatures", which has been
 * ...and much more features and fixes

  * various bug fixes for multiple subcommands and operations

Mon Oct  8 16:38:04 CEST 2018 -

- Fix VUL-0: arbitrary code execution via .gitmodules
  (CVE-2018-17456, bsc#1110949):

Fri Oct  5 17:31:07 UTC 2018 -

- git 2.19.1:
  * CVE-2018-17456: Specially crafted .gitmodules files may have
    allowed arbitrary code execution when the repository is cloned
    with --recurse-submodules (bsc#1110949)

Tue Sep 11 14:40:01 UTC 2018 - Petr Vorel <>

- git 2.19.0:
 * "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
 * 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
 * "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

- Update to git 2.16.4: security fix release
  * path sanity-checks on NTFS can read arbitrary memory
    (CVE-2018-11233, bsc#1095218)

    repository (CVE-2018-11235, bsc#1095219)

Tue May 29 23:11:45 UTC 2018 -

- git 2.17.1
 * Submodule "names" come from the untrusted .gitmodules file, but
   we blindly append them to $GIT_DIR/modules to create our on-disk
   repo paths. This means you can do bad things by putting "../"
   into the name. We now enforce some rules for submodule names
   which will cause Git to ignore these malicious names
   (CVE-2018-11235, bsc#1095219)
 * It was possible to trick the code that sanity-checks paths on
   NTFS into reading random piece of memory
   (CVE-2018-11233, bsc#1095218)
 * Support on the server side to reject pushes to repositories
   that attempt to create such problematic .gitmodules file etc.
   as tracked contents, to help hosting sites protect their
   customers by preventing malicious contents from spreading.

Sat May 19 20:37:48 UTC 2018 -

- git 2.17.0:
  * "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
  * 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").

- Use %license instead of %doc [bsc#1082318]

Fri Mar 23 03:12:14 UTC 2018 -

- git 2.16.3:
  * "git status" after moving a path in the working tree (hence
    making it appear "removed") and then adding with the -N option
    (hence making that appear "added") detected it as a rename, but
    did not report the  old and new pathnames correctly.
  * "git commit --fixup" did not allow "-m<message>" option to be
    used at the same time; allow it to annotate resulting commit
    with more text.
  * When resetting the working tree files recursively, the working
    tree of submodules are now also reset to match.
  * Fix for a commented-out code to adjust it to a rather old API
    change around object ID.
  * When there are too many changed paths, "git diff" showed a
    warning message but in the middle of a line.
  * The http tracing code, often used to debug connection issues,
    learned to redact potentially sensitive information from its
    output so that it can be more safely sharable.
  * Crash fix for a corner case where an error codepath tried to
    unlock what it did not acquire lock on.
  * The split-index mode had a few corner case bugs fixed.
  * Assorted fixes to "git daemon".
  * Completion of "git merge -s<strategy>" (in contrib/) did not
    work well in non-C locale.
  * Workaround for segfault with more recent versions of SVN.
  * Recently introduced leaks in fsck have been plugged.
  * Travis CI integration now builds the executable in 'script'
    phase 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).

- git 2.16.2:
 * 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
 * "git add -p" was taught to ignore local changes to submodules
   as they do not interfere with the partial addition of regular
   changes anyway.

Thu Aug 10 19:19:07 UTC 2017 -

- git 2.14.1 (bsc#1052481):
  * Security fix for CVE-2017-1000117: A malicious third-party can
    give a crafted "ssh://..." URL to an unsuspecting victim, and
    an attempt to visit the URL can result in any program that
    exists on the victim's machine being executed. Such a URL could
    be placed in the .gitmodules file of a malicious project, and
    an unsuspecting victim could be tricked into running
    "git clone --recurse-submodules" to trigger the vulnerability.
  * A "ssh://..." URL can result in a "ssh" command line with a
    hostname that begins with a dash "-", which would cause the
    "ssh" command to instead (mis)treat it as an option. This is
    now prevented by forbidding such a hostname (which should not
    impact any real-world usage).
  * Similarly, when GIT_PROXY_COMMAND is configured, the command
    is run with host and port that are parsed out from "ssh://..."
    URL; a poorly written GIT_PROXY_COMMAND could be tricked into
    treating a string that begins with a dash "-" as an option.
    This is now prevented by forbidding such a hostname and port
    number (again, which should not impact any real-world usage).
  * In the same spirit, a repository name that begins with a dash
    "-" is also forbidden now.

Fri Feb 24 22:07:09 UTC 2017 -

- git 2.12.0:
  * Use of an empty string 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 will be removed in a
    future release.

- git 2.9.0:
  * commands in the "git diff" and "git log" family by default
    enable the rename detection; use "diff.renames" configuration
    variable to disable this.
  * merging two branches that have no common ancestor with "git
    merge" is by default forbidden now to prevent creating such an
    unusual merge by mistake.
  * output formats of "git log" that indents the commit log message
    by 4 spaces now expands HT in the log message by default. 
    The "--no-expand-tabs" option disables this.
  * "git commit-tree" plumbing command required the user to always
    sign its result when the user sets the commit.gpgsign
    configuration variable, this is no longer the case. Scrips
    using commit-tree which may rely on this mistake no needs to
    read commit.gpgsign and pass the -S option as necessary.
  * Many more bug fixes and minor updates.

Tue Jun  7 07:21:35 UTC 2016 -

- git 2.8.4:

  * Treat "http.cookieFile" config as a path
  * Suggest "submodule deinit --all" for deinitializing all submodules
  * A couple of bugs around core.autocrlf have been fixed.
  * "git difftool" learned to handle unmerged paths correctly in
    dir-diff mode.

Thu May 19 19:40:48 UTC 2016 -

- git 2.8.3:
 * "git send-email" now uses a more readable timestamps when
   formulating a message ID.
 * When "git worktree" feature is in use, "git branch -d" allowed
   deletion of a branch that is checked out in another worktree
 * When "git worktree" feature is in use, "git branch -m" renamed a
   branch that is checked out in another worktree without adjusting
   the HEAD symbolic ref for the worktree.
 * "git format-patch --help" showed `-s` and `--no-patch` as if these
   are valid options to the command.  We already hide `--patch` option
   from the documentation, because format-patch is about showing the
   diff, and the documentation now hides these options as well.
 * A change back in version 2.7 to "git branch" broke display of a
   symbolic ref in a non-standard place in the refs/ hierarchy (we
   expect symbolic refs to appear in refs/remotes/*/HEAD to point at
   the primary branch the remote has, and as .git/HEAD to point at the
   branch we locally checked out).
 * A partial rewrite of "git submodule" in the 2.7 timeframe changed
   the way the gitdir: pointer in the submodules point at the real
   repository location to use absolute paths by accident.  This has
   been corrected.
 * "git commit" misbehaved in a few minor ways when an empty message
   is given via -m '', all of which has been corrected.
 * Support for CRAM-MD5 authentication method in "git imap-send" did
   not work well.
 * The socks5:// proxy support added back in 2.6.4 days was not aware
   that socks5h:// proxies behave differently.
 * "git config" had a codepath that tried to pass a NULL to
   printf("%s"), which nobody seems to have noticed.
 * "git replace -e" did not honour "core.editor" configuration.
 * "git submodule" reports the paths of submodules the command
   recurses into, but this was incorrect when the command was not run
   from the root level of the superproject.
 * The "user.useConfigOnly" configuration variable makes it an error
   if users do not explicitly set and  However,
   its check was not done early enough and allowed another error to
   trigger, reporting that the default value we guessed from the
   system setting was unusable.  This was a suboptimal end-user
   experience as we want the users to set without
   relying on the auto-detection at all.
 * "git mv old new" did not adjust the path for a submodule that lives
   as a subdirectory inside old/ directory correctly.
 * "git push" from a corrupt repository that attempts to push a large
   number of refs deadlocked; the thread to relay rejection notices
   for these ref updates blocked on writing them to the main thread,
   after the main thread at the receiving end notices that the push
   failed and decides not to read these notices and return a failure.
 * A question by "git send-email" to ask the identity of the sender
   has been updated.
 * Recent update to Git LFS broke "git p4" by changing the output from
   its "lfs pointer" subcommand.
 * Some multi-byte encoding can have a backslash byte as a later part
   of one letter, which would confuse "highlight" filter used in

Sat Apr 30 12:15:11 UTC 2016 -

- git 2.8.2:
 * "index-pack --keep=<msg>" was broken since v2.1.0 timeframe.
 * "git config --get-urlmatch", unlike other variants of the "git
   config --get" family, did not signal error with its exit status
   when there was no matching configuration.
 * The "--local-env-vars" and "--resolve-git-dir" options of "git
   rev-parse" failed to work outside a repository when the command's
   option parsing was rewritten in 1.8.5 era.
 * Fetching of history by naming a commit object name directly didn't
   work across remote-curl transport.
 * A small memory leak in an error codepath has been plugged in xdiff
 * "git mergetool" did not work well with conflicts that both sides
 * "git send-email" had trouble parsing alias file in mailrc format
   when lines in it had trailing whitespaces on them.
 * When "git merge --squash" stopped due to conflict, the concluding
   "git commit" failed to read in the SQUASH_MSG that shows the log
   messages from all the squashed commits.
 * "git merge FETCH_HEAD" dereferenced NULL pointer when merging
   nothing into an unborn history (which is arguably unusual usage,
   which perhaps was the reason why nobody noticed it).
 * "git diff -M" used to work better when two originally identical
   files A and B got renamed to X/A and X/B by pairing A to X/A and B
   to X/B, but this was broken in the 2.0 timeframe.
 * "git send-pack --all <there>" was broken when its command line
   option parsing was written in the 2.6 timeframe.
 * When running "git blame $path" with unnormalized data in the index
   for the path, the data in the working tree was blamed, even though
   "git add" would not have changed what is already in the index, due
   to "safe crlf" that disables the line-end conversion.  It has been

Fri Mar 11 08:38:09 UTC 2016 -

- git 2.7.3:
 * "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

   now the default for "git push" when push.default configuration is
   not set.
 * Test adjustments for GNU grep, obsoleting
 * "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.

  * new subcommands, parameters and configuration options
  * performance improvements and code clean-ups
  * remove upstreamed patches:

Tue Jan  5 06:58:11 UTC 2016 -

- git 2.6.5:
  * Update "git subtree" (in contrib/) so that it can take 
    whitespaces in the pathnames, not only in the in-tree pathname
    but the name of the directory that the repository is in.
  * "git p4" used to import Perforce CLs that touch only paths
    outside the client spec as empty commits. It has been
    corrected to ignorethem instead, with a new configuration
    git-p4.keepEmptyCommits as a backward compatibility knob.
  * Improve error reporting when SMTP TLS fails.
  * "git symbolic-ref" forgot to report a failure with its exit
  * History traversal with "git log --source" that starts with an
    annotated tag failed to report the tag as "source", due to an
    old regression in the command line parser back in v2.2 days.

Wed Dec  9 07:21:40 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.6.4:
  * Add support for talking http/https over socks proxy.
  * Allow all hooks to ignore their standard input,
    rather than having git complain of SIGPIPE.
  * Allow tilde-expansion in some http config variables.
  * Make git-p4 work on a detached head.
  * Add "git rebase --no-autostash"
  * Allow "git interpret-trailers" to run outside of a Git

- drop pager-don-t-use-unsafe-functions-in-signal-handle.patch

Tue Oct  6 08:53:30 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.6.1, with a security fix:
 * Make xdiff code handle extremely large files, cap around 1GB.
 * Some protocols (like git-remote-ext) can execute arbitrary code
   found in the URL.  The URLs that submodules use may come from
   arbitrary sources (e.g., .gitmodules files in a remote
   repository), and can hurt those who blindly enable recursive
   fetch.  Restrict the allowed protocols to well known and safe
   ones. [boo#948969]

Tue Sep 29 18:57:13 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.6.0:

   with a few levels of subdirectories are involved.
 * Fix performance regression in "git am --skip"
Sat Sep 19 10:13:32 UTC 2015 -

- Suggest instead of recommend git-web: git-web is the web-server
  browsing part. Users that install git-core and appache will still

  * Improvements working with perforce (git p4)
  * A new short-hand <branch>@{push}
  * Introduce http.<url>.SSLCipherList configuration variable to
    tweak the list of cipher suite to be used with libcURL when
    talking with https:// sites.
  * "git cat-file --batch(-check)" new option "--follow-symlinks"
  * "git send-email" learned the alias file format used by the
    sendmail program
  * For 3-way merge drivers, add %P (final path)
  * "git blame" learned blame.showEmail configuration variable.
  * Add the "--allow-unknown-type" option to "cat-file" 
  * Many long-running operations now show progress eye-candy

Tue Jul 28 13:05:08 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.4.7:
 * Fix "git fsck" regression related to body-less tag object
 * Ask libCURL to use the most secure proxy authentication method
 * Fix shell handling issues in git log
 * Fix git config on read-only fs
 * Make "git rebase" exit with failure when format-patch fails

Wed Jul 22 09:39:51 UTC 2015 -

- put git-credential-cache--daemon into git-core -- it is needed
  for git-credential-cache (bnc#939065)

Fri Jul 17 10:41:11 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.4.6:
 * "git fetch --depth=<depth>" and "git clone --depth=<depth>"
   issued a shallow transfer request even to an upload-pack that
   does not support the capability.
 * "git fsck" used to ignore missing or invalid objects recorded in
 * The tcsh completion writes a bash scriptlet but that would have
   failed for users with noclobber set.
 * "git format-patch --ignore-if-upstream A..B" did not like to be
   fed tags as boundary commits.
- git-tcsh-completion-fixes.diff adjusted for context changes

Fri Jun 26 12:13:19 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.4.5:
  * internal code and stability improvements
  * ""git rebase -i" fired post-rewrite hook when it shouldn't
    (namely, when it was told to stop sequencing with 'exec' insn).

Wed Jun 17 19:16:05 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.4.4:
 * 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
 * Catch a programmer mistake to feed a pointer not an array to
   ARRAY_SIZE() macro, by using a couple of GCC extensions.

Sun Jun  7 12:34:01 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.4.3:
  * Ui message corrections and improvements
  * "git pull --log" and "git pull --no-log" worked as expected,
    but "git pull --log=20" did not.
  * Fix pull.ff configuration overriding merge.ff
  * fix memory leaks and resource exhaustion errors
  * documentation fixes
  * Fix core.excludesfile priorities

Wed May 27 18:21:16 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.4.2:
 * "git rev-list --objects $old --not --all" to see if everything that
   is reachable from $old is already connected to the existing refs
   was very inefficient.
 * "hash-object --literally" introduced in v2.2 was not prepared to
   take a really long object type name.
 * "git rebase --quiet" was not quite quiet when there is nothing to
 * The completion for "log --decorate=" parameter value was incorrect.
 * "filter-branch" corrupted commit log message that ends with an
   incomplete line on platforms with some "sed" implementations that
   munge such a line.  Work it around by avoiding to use "sed".
 * "git daemon" fails to build from the source under NO_IPV6
   configuration (regression in 2.4).
 * "git stash pop/apply" forgot to make sure that not just the working
   tree is clean but also the index is clean. The latter is important
   as a stash application can conflict and the index will be used for
   conflict resolution.
 * No longer prepend $GIT_EXEC_PATH and install path to path of
   executed subprograms and hooks.

Thu May 14 21:02:35 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.4.1:
 * git diff bugfixes and improvements
 * Fix spelling in .gitconfig created upon "git config --global"
 * "git commit --date=now" or anything that relies on approxidate
   lost the daylight-saving-time offset.
 * "git cat-file bl $blob" failed to barf even though there is no
   object type that is "bl".
 * Improvements for repositories on NFS

Mon May  4 10:24:41 UTC 2015 -

- Update to new upstream release 2.4.0
* "git push" has been taught an "--atomic" option that makes a push
  that updates more than one ref an "all-or-none" affair.
* Output from "git log --decorate" now distinguishes between a
  detached HEAD vs. a HEAD that points at a branch.
* The phrasing `git branch` uses to describe a detached HEAD has
  been updated to agree with the phrasing used by `git status`.
* A new "push.followTags" configuration turns the "--follow-tags"
  option on by default for the `git push` command.
- Retrieve tarball signature

Tue Apr 28 15:56:38 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.3.7:
 * An earlier update to the parser that disects a URL broke an
   address, followed by a colon, followed by an empty string (instead
   of the port number), e.g. ssh://
 * The completion script (in contrib/) contaminated global namespace
   and clobbered on a shell variable $x.
 * The "git push --signed" protocol extension did not limit what the
   "nonce" that is a server-chosen string can contain or how long it
   can be, which was unnecessarily lax.  Limit both the length and the
   alphabet to a reasonably small space that can still have enough

Sun Apr 26 18:09:29 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.3.6:
 * "diff-highlight" (in contrib/) multibyte character support

Thu Apr  2 22:12:30 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.3.5:
 * The prompt script (in contrib/) did not show the untracked sign
   when working in a subdirectory without any untracked files.
 * Even though "git grep --quiet" is run merely to ask for the exit
   status, we spawned the pager regardless.  Stop doing that.
 * Recommend format-patch and send-email for those who want to
   submit patches to this project.
 * An failure early in the "git clone" that started creating the
   working tree and repository could have resulted in some
   directories and files left without getting cleaned up.
 * "git fetch" that fetches a commit using the allow-tip-sha1-in-want
   extension could have failed to fetch all the requested refs.
 * The split-index mode introduced at v2.3.0-rc0~41 was broken in
   the codepath to protect us against a broken reimplementation of
   Git  that writes an invalid index with duplicated index entries,
 * "git prune" used to largely ignore broken refs when deciding
   which objects are still being used, which could spread an
   existing small damage and make it a larger one.
 * "git tag -h" used to show the "--column" and "--sort" options
   that are about listing in a wrong section.
 * The transfer.hiderefs support did not quite work for smart-http
 * The code that reads from the ctags file in the completion script
   (in contrib/) did not spell ${param/pattern/string} substitution
   correctly, which happened to work with bash but not with zsh.
 * The explanation on "rebase --preserve-merges", "pull
   --rebase=preserve", and "push --force-with-lease" in the
   documentation was unclear.

Tue Mar 24 06:52:33 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.3.4:
 * The 'color.status.unmerged' configuration was not described.
 * "git log --decorate" did not reset colors correctly around the
   branch names.
 * "git -C '' subcmd" refused to work in the current directory, unlike
   "cd ''" which silently behaves as a no-op.
 * "git imap-send" learned to optionally talk with an IMAP server via
   libcURL; because there is no other option when Git is built with
   NO_OPENSSL option, use that codepath by default under such
 * A workaround for certain build of GPG that triggered false breakage
   in a test has been added.
 * "git rebase -i" recently started to include the number of
   commits in the insn sheet to be processed, but on a platform
   that prepends leading whitespaces to "wc -l" output, the numbers
   are shown with extra whitespaces that aren't necessary.
 * We did not parse username followed by literal IPv6 address in SSH
   transport URLs, e.g. ssh://user@[2001:db8::1]:22/repo.git

Sat Mar 14 19:05:25 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.3.3:
 * A corrupt input to "git diff -M" used cause us to segfault.
 * The borrowed code in kwset API did not follow our usual convention
   to use "unsigned char" to store values that range from 0-255.
 * Description given by "grep -h" for its --exclude-standard option
   was phrased poorly.
 * Documentaton for "git remote add" mentioned "--tags" and
   "--no-tags" and it was not clear that fetch from the remote in
   the future will use the default behaviour when neither is given
   to override it.
 * "git diff --shortstat --dirstat=changes" showed a dirstat based on
   lines that was never asked by the end user in addition to the
   dirstat that the user asked for.
 * The interaction between "git submodule update" and the
   submodule.*.update configuration was not clearly documented.
 * "git apply" was not very careful about reading from, removing,
   updating and creating paths outside the working tree (under
   --index/--cached) or the current directory (when used as a
   replacement for GNU patch).
 * "git daemon" looked up the hostname even when "%CH" and "%IP"
   interpolations are not requested, which was unnecessary.
 * The "interpolated-path" option of "git daemon" inserted any string
   client declared on the "host=" capability request without checking.
   Sanitize and limit %H and %CH to a saner and a valid DNS name.

Thu Mar 12 16:19:14 CET 2015 -

- Fix missing /usr/share/tcsh/git.complete (bnc#919105):
  git-tcsh-completion-fixes.diff was refreshed for generating the
  script correctly

Sat Mar  7 06:20:42 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.3.2:
 * "update-index --refresh" used to leak when an entry cannot be
   refreshed for whatever reason.
 * "git fast-import" used to crash when it could not close and
   conclude the resulting packfile cleanly.
 * "git blame" died, trying to free an uninitialized piece of memory.
 * "git merge-file" did not work correctly in a subdirectory.
 * "git submodule add" failed to squash "path/to/././submodule" to
 * In v2.2.0, we broke "git prune" that runs in a repository that
   borrows from an alternate object store.
 * Certain older vintages of cURL give irregular output from
   "curl-config --vernum", which confused our build system.
 * Longstanding configuration variable naming rules has been added to
   the documentation.
 * Older GnuPG implementations may not correctly import the keyring
   material we prepare for the tests to use.
 * Clarify in the documentation that "remote.<nick>.pushURL" and
   "remote.<nick>.URL" are there to name the same repository accessed
   via different transports, not two separate repositories.
 * The pack bitmap support did not build with older versions of GCC.
 * Reading configuration from a blob object, when it ends with a lone
   CR, use to confuse the configuration parser.
 * We didn't format an integer that wouldn't fit in "int" but in
   "uintmax_t" correctly.
 * "git push --signed" gave an incorrectly worded error message when
   the other side did not support the capability.
 * "git fetch" over a remote-helper that cannot respond to "list"
   command could not fetch from a symbolic reference e.g. HEAD.
 * The insn sheet "git rebase -i" creates did not fully honor
   core.abbrev settings.
 * The tests that wanted to see that file becomes unreadable after
   running "chmod a-r file", and the tests that wanted to make sure it
   is not run as root, we used "can we write into the / directory?" as
   a cheap substitute, but on some platforms that is not a good
   heuristics.  The tests and their prerequisites have been updated to
   check what they really require.
 * The configuration variable 'mailinfo.scissors' was hard to
   discover in the documentation.
 * Correct a breakage to git-svn around v2.2 era that triggers
   premature closing of FileHandle.
 * Even though we officially haven't dropped Perl 5.8 support, the
   Getopt::Long package that came with it does not support "--no-"
   prefix to negate a boolean option; manually add support to help
   people with older Getopt::Long package.

Wed Mar  4 17:11:05 UTC 2015 -

- Don't install dummy hg and bzr remote helpers

Thu Feb 26 17:14:53 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.3.1:
 * The interactive "show a list and let the user choose from it"
   interface "add -i" used showed and prompted to the user even when
   the candidate list was empty, against which the only "choice" the
   user could have made was to choose nothing.
 * "git apply --whitespace=fix" used to under-allocate the memory
   when the fix resulted in a longer text than the original patch.
 * "git log --help" used to show rev-list options that are irrelevant
   to the "log" command.
 * The error message from "git commit", when a non-existing author
   name was given as value to the "--author=" parameter, has been
   reworded to avoid misunderstanding.
 * A broken pack .idx file in the receiving repository prevented the
   dumb http transport from fetching a good copy of it from the other
 * The documentation incorrectly said that C(opy) and R(ename) are the
   only ones that can be followed by the score number in the output in
   the --raw format.
 * Fix a misspelled conditional that is always true.
 * Code to read branch name from various files in .git/ directory
   would have misbehaved if the code to write them left an empty file.
 * The "git push" documentation made the "--repo=<there>" option
   easily misunderstood.
 * After attempting and failing a password-less authentication
   (e.g. kerberos), libcURL refuses to fall back to password based
   Basic authentication without a bit of help/encouragement.
 * Setting diff.submodule to 'log' made "git format-patch" produce
   broken patches.
 * "git rerere" (invoked internally from many mergy operations) did
   not correctly signal errors when told to update the working tree
   files and failed to do so for whatever reason.
 * "git blame HEAD -- missing" failed to correctly say "HEAD" when it
   tried to say "No such path 'missing' in HEAD".

Fri Feb  6 15:59:55 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.3.0:
  Many small corrections and improvements.
- UI, Workflows and Features:
  * New GIT_SSH_COMMAND environment variable
  * Can now store empty notes
  * "git interpret-trailers" learned to properly handle the
    "Conflicts:" block at the end.
  * "git am" learned "--message-id" option
  * "git clone --reference=<over there>" learned the "--dissociate"
  * "git send-email" learned the "--transfer-encoding" option
  * "git send-email" learned the "--no-xmailer" option
  * "git branch -d" (delete) and "git branch -m" (move) learned to
    honor "-f" (force) flag
  * "git imap-send" learned to take "-v" (verbose) and "-q" (quiet)
    command line options.

Tue Jan 13 08:16:19 UTC 2015 -

- git 2.2.2:
  + "git checkout $treeish $path", when $path in the index and the
    working tree already matched what is in $treeish at the $path,
    still overwrote the $path unnecessarily.
  + "git config --get-color" did not parse its command line arguments
  + A few code paths used abs() when they should have used labs() on
    long integers.
  + "gitweb" used to depend on a behaviour recent deprecated.
  + "git init" (hence "git clone") initialized the per-repository
    configuration file .git/config with x-bit by mistake.
  + Git 2.0 was supposed to make the "simple" mode for the default of
    "git push", but it didn't.
  + "Everyday" document had a broken link.
  + The build procedure did not bother fixing perl and python scripts
    when NO_PERL and NO_PYTHON build-time configuration changed.
  + The code that reads the reflog from the newer to the older entries
    did not handle an entry that crosses a boundary of block it uses to
    read them correctly.
  + "git apply" was described in the documentation to take --ignore-date
    option, which it does not.
  + Traditionally we tried to avoid interpreting date strings given by
    the user as future dates, e.g. GIT_COMMITTER_DATE=2014-12-10 when
    used early November 2014 was taken as "October 12, 2014" because it
    is likely that a date in the future, December 10, is a mistake.
    This heuristics has been loosened to allow people to express future
    dates (most notably, --until=<date> may want to be far in the
    future) and we no longer tiebreak by future-ness of the date when
    (1) ISO-like format is used, and
    (2) the string can make sense interpreted as both y-m-d and y-d-m.
    Git may still have to use the heuristics to tiebreak between dd/mm/yy
    and mm/dd/yy, though.
  + The code to abbreviate an object name to its short unique prefix
    has been optimized when no abbreviation was requested.
  + "git add --ignore-errors ..." did not ignore an error to
    give a file that did not exist.
  + Git did not correctly read an overlong refname from a packed refs

Fri Dec 19 14:01:18 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.2.1
  Fixes arbitrary command execution vulnerability on case-
  insensitive file systems. [boo#910756] [CVE-2014-9390]
  This is not a usual case on GNU/Linux, but this update prevents
  such commits to propagate to third parties (Windows, OS X) that
  may be vulnerable.

Thu Nov 27 08:49:01 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.2.0:
  + improvements and updates to UI, Workflows, Features and options

- Allow snapshot generation in apparmor profile (bnc#905707)

Wed Oct 29 20:28:18 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.1.3:
  * Some MUAs mangled a line in a message that begins with "From "
    to ">From " when writing to a mailbox file and feeding such an
    input to "git am" used to lose such a line.
  * "git daemon" (with NO_IPV6 build configuration) used to
     incorrectly use the hostname even when gethostbyname()
     reported that the given hostname is not found.
  * Newer versions of 'meld' breaks the auto-detection we use to
    see if they are new enough to support the `--output` option.
  * "git pack-objects" forgot to disable the codepath to generate
    object recheability bitmap when it needs to split the resulting
  * "gitweb" used deprecated CGI::startfrom, which was removed from as of 4.04; use CGI::start_from instead.
  * "git log" documentation had an example section marked up not
    quite correctly, which passed AsciiDoc but failed with
  * Also contains some documentation updates.

Wed Oct  1 06:49:03 UTC 2014 -

- Adapt git-web to newer apache2 (bnc#898318, bnc#897005)

Tue Sep 30 20:32:08 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.1.2:
  * "git push" over HTTP transport had an artificial limit on
    number of refs that can be pushed imposed by the command line
  * When receiving an invalid pack stream that records the same
    object twice, multiple threads got confused due to a race.
  * An attempt to remove the entire tree in the "git fast-import"
    input stream caused it to misbehave.
  * Reachability check (used in "git prune" and friends) did not
    add a detached HEAD as a starting point to traverse
    objects still in use.
  * "git config --add section.var val" used to lose existing
    section.var whose value was an empty string.
  * "git fsck" failed to report that it found corrupt objects via
    its exit status in some cases.

Sat Sep 20 07:45:00 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.1.1:
 * Git 2.0 had a regression where "git fetch" into a shallowly
   cloned repository from a repository with bitmap object index
   enabled did not work correctly.  This has been corrected.
 * Git 2.0 had a regression which broke (rarely used) "git diff-tree
   -t".  This has been corrected.
 * "git log --pretty/format=" with an empty format string did not
   mean the more obvious "No output whatsoever" but "Use default
   format", which was counterintuitive.  Now it means "nothing shown
   for the log message part".
 * "git -c section.var command" and "git -c section.var= command"
   should pass the configuration differently (the former should be a
   boolean true, the latter should be an empty string), but they
   didn't work that way.  Now it does.
 * Applying a patch not generated by Git in a subdirectory used to
   check the whitespace breakage using the attributes for incorrect
   paths. Also whitespace checks were performed even for paths
   excluded via "git apply --exclude=<path>" mechanism.
 * "git bundle create" with date-range specification were meant to
   exclude tags outside the range, but it did not work correctly.
 * "git add x" where x that used to be a directory has become a
   symbolic link to a directory misbehaved.
 * The prompt script checked $GIT_DIR/ref/stash file to see if there
   is a stash, which was a no-no.
 * "git checkout -m" did not switch to another branch while carrying
   the local changes forward when a path was deleted from the index.
 * With sufficiently long refnames, fast-import could have overflown
   an on-stack buffer.
 * After "pack-refs --prune" packed refs at the top-level, it failed
   to prune them.
 * "git gc --auto" triggered from "git fetch --quiet" was not quiet.

Thu Jul 31 16:01:38 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.0.4:
  * fix output of "git diff-tree" broken since 2.0.2

Sat Jul 26 21:24:51 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.0.3:
 * An ancient rewrite passed a wrong pointer to a curl library
   function in a rarely used code path.
 * "filter-branch" left an empty single-parent commit that results
   when all parents of a merge commit gets mapped to the same
   commit, even under "--prune-empty".
 * "log --show-signature" incorrectly decided the color to paint a
   mergetag that was and was not correctly validated.
 * "log --show-signature" did not pay attention to "--graph" option.

Thu Jul 24 05:05:47 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.0.2:
 * Documentation for "git submodule sync" forgot to say that the subcommand
   can take the "--recursive" option.
 * Mishandling of patterns in .gitignore that has trailing SPs quoted
   with backslashes (e.g. ones that end with "\ ") have been
 * Recent updates to "git repack" started to duplicate objects that
   are in packfiles marked with .keep flag into the new packfile by
 * "git clone -b brefs/tags/bar" would have mistakenly thought we were
   following a single tag, even though it was a name of the branch,
   because it incorrectly used strstr().
 * "%G" (nothing after G) is an invalid pretty format specifier, but
   the parser did not notice it as garbage.
 * Code to avoid adding the same alternate object store twice was
   subtly broken for a long time, but nobody seems to have noticed.
 * A handful of code paths had to read the commit object more than
   once when showing header fields that are usually not parsed.  The
   internal data structure to keep track of the contents of the commit
   object has been updated to reduce the need for this double-reading,
   and to allow the caller find the length of the object.
 * During "git rebase --merge", a conflicted patch could not be
   skipped with "--skip" if the next one also conflicted.

Mon Jun 30 20:26:47 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.0.1:

  performance and misleading behaviour. Full list:

Mon Jun 16 23:18:17 UTC 2014 -

- git 2.0.0
- Backward compatibility notes:
  * git push now uses "simple" semantics by default instead of
    old "matching", use variable "push.default" to revert
  * "git add -u" and "git add -A" operate on entire tree, use 
    "git add -u ." or "git add -A ." for current directory only.
  * "git add <path>" is the same as "git add -A <path>" now, use
    "git add --ignore-removal <path>" for previous behaviour
  * "-q" option of "git diff-files" has been removed. To ignore
     deletion, use "git diff-files --diff-filter=d"
  * "git request-pull" lost a few "heuristics"
  * default prefix for "git svn" remote-tracking branches changed
    from refs/remotes to refs/remotes/origin/ unless with "--prefix"
- Updates, fixes and features as listed in:

Wed Jun 11 20:36:00 UTC 2014 -

- git 1.9.4:
   * Commands that take pathspecs on the command line misbehaved
     when the pathspec is given as an absolute pathname (which is a
     practice not particularly encouraged) that points at a
     symbolic link in the working tree.
   * An earlier fix to the shell prompt script (in contrib/) for
     using the PROMPT_COMMAND interface did not correctly check if
     the extra code path needs to trigger, causing the branch name
     not to appear when 'promptvars' option is disabled in bash or
     PROMPT_SUBST is unset in zsh.
- switch to xz tarball form

Sun May 11 15:51:39 UTC 2014 -

- git 1.9.3:
 * "git p4" dealing with changes in binary files were broken by a
   change in 1.9 release.
 * The shell prompt script (in contrib/), when using the
   PROMPT_COMMAND interface, used an unsafe construct when showing
   the branch name in $PS1.
 * Some more Unicode codepoints defined in Unicode 6.3 as having
   zero width have been taught to our display column counting

Sun Apr 13 20:19:26 UTC 2014 -

- git 1.9.2:
  * Fix an issue with "git fetch --prune" removing paths on
    multiple fetch
  * "git update-ref --stdin" did not fail a request to create a
    ref when the ref already existed.
  * "git diff --no-index -Mq a b" fell into an infinite loop.
  * Do not override GIT_EDITOR when no commit message is required
    to not affect other uses
  * "git status --porcelain --branch" showed its output with labels
    "ahead/behind/gone" translated to the user's locale.
  * "git mv" that moves a submodule forgot to adjust the array that
     uses to keep track of which submodules were to be moved to
     update its configuration
  * Length limit for the pathname used when removing a path in a
    deep subdirectory has been removed to avoid buffer overflows.
  * "git index-pack" used a wrong variable to name the keep-file in
    an error message when the file cannot be written or closed.
  * "rebase -i" produced a broken insn sheet when the title of a
    commit happened to contain '\n' (or ended with '\c') due to a
    careless use of 'echo'.
  * Serving objects from a shallow repository needs to write a
    new file to hold the temporary shallow boundaries but it was not
    cleaned when we exit due to die() or a signal.
  * When "git stash pop" stops after failing to apply the stash
    (e.g. due to conflicting changes), the stash is not dropped.
    State that explicitly in the output to let the users know.
  * The labels in "git status" output that describe the nature of
    conflicts (e.g. "both deleted") were limited to 20 bytes, which
    was too short for some l10n (e.g. fr).
  * minor documentation updates

  * The test suite for HTTP transport did not run with Apache 2.4.

  * "git diff" used to fail when core.safecrlf is set and the working
    tree contents had mixed CRLF/LF line endings. Committing such a
    content must be prohibited, but "git diff" should help the user to

   certificate matched the host it thought it was talking to.

    * minor fixes and documentation updates.

Wed Jan 30 01:57:15 UTC 2013 -

- updated to version

     * An element on GIT_CEILING_DIRECTORIES list that does not name the
       real path to a directory (i.e. a symbolic link) could have caused
       the GIT_DIR discovery logic to escape the ceiling.

     * Command line completion for "tcsh" emitted an unwanted space
       after completing a single directory name.

     * Command line completion leaked an unnecessary error message while
       looking for possible matches with paths in <tree-ish>.

     * "git archive" did not record uncompressed size in the header when
       streaming a zip archive, which confused some implementations of unzip.

     * When users spelled "cc:" in lowercase in the fake "header" in the
       trailer part, "git send-email" failed to pick up the addresses from
       there. As e-mail headers field names are case insensitive, this
       script should follow suit and treat "cc:" and "Cc:" the same way.

    Also contains various documentation fixes.

    more details, please see here:

Fri Dec 14 00:46:08 UTC 2012 -

- updated to version

     * Various codepaths have workaround for a common misconfiguration to
       spell "UTF-8" as "utf8", but it was not used uniformly.  Most
       notably, mailinfo (which is used by "git am") lacked this support.

     * We failed to mention a file without any content change but whose
       permission bit was modified, or (worse yet) a new file without any
       content in the "git diff --stat" output.

     * When "--stat-count" hides a diffstat for binary contents, the total
       number of added and removed lines at the bottom was computed

     * When "--stat-count" hides a diffstat for unmerged paths, the total
       number of affected files at the bottom of the "diff --stat" output
       was computed incorrectly.

     * "diff --shortstat" miscounted the total number of affected files
       when there were unmerged paths.

     * "git p4" used to try expanding malformed "$keyword$" that spans
       across multiple lines.

     * "git update-ref -d --deref SYM" to delete a ref through a symbolic
       ref that points to it did not remove it correctly.

     * Syntax highlighting in "gitweb" was not quite working.

    Also contains other minor fixes and documentation updates.

Tue Nov 27 02:54:50 UTC 2012 -

    * a bit of features.

     * all the fixes since v1.7.12.

     more details, please see here:

Thu Oct 18 14:50:30 UTC 2012 -

- updated to version

     * "git fetch" over the dumb-http revision walker could segfault when
       curl's multi interface was used.

     * It was possible to give specific paths for "asciidoc" and other
       tools in the documentation toolchain, but not for "xmlto".

     * "gitweb" did not give the correct committer timezone in its feed
       output due to a typo.

     * The "-Xours" (and similarly -Xtheirs) backend option to "git
       merge -s recursive" was ignored for binary files.  Now it is

     * The "binary" synthetic attribute made "diff" to treat the path as
       binary, but not "merge".

    Also contains many documentation updates.

Thu Oct 11 00:19:07 CST 2012 -

- updated to version

     * "git am" mishandled a patch attached as application/octet-stream
       (e.g. not text/*); Content-Transfer-Encoding (e.g. base64) was not
       honored correctly.

     * It was unclear in the documentation for "git blame" that it is
       unnecessary for users to use the "--follow" option.

     * A repository created with "git clone --single" had its fetch
       refspecs set up just like a clone without "--single", leading the
       subsequent "git fetch" to slurp all the other branches, defeating
       the whole point of specifying "only this branch".

     * "git fetch" over http had an old workaround for an unlikely server
       misconfiguration; it turns out that this hurts debuggability of the
       configuration in general, and has been reverted.

     * "git fetch" over http advertised that it supports "deflate", which
       is much less common, and did not advertise the more common "gzip" on
       its Accept-Encoding header.

     * "git receive-pack" (the counterpart to "git push") did not give
       progress output while processing objects it received to the puser
       when run over the smart-http protocol.

     * "git status" honored the ignore=dirty settings in .gitmodules but
       "git commit" didn't.

    Also contains a handful of documentation updates.

Mon Oct  8 20:50:47 UTC 2012 -

- Use ./.make also in %check to test exactly what was built
- Avoid duplicate file warnings

Thu Oct  4 22:29:10 CST 2012 -

- updated to version

     * When "git am" is fed an input that has multiple "Content-type: ..."
       header, it did not grok charset= attribute correctly.

     * Even during a conflicted merge, "git blame $path" always meant to
       blame uncommitted changes to the "working tree" version; make it
       more useful by showing cleanly merged parts as coming from the other
       branch that is being merged.

     * "git blame MAKEFILE" run in a history that has "Makefile" but not
       "MAKEFILE" should say "No such file MAKEFILE in HEAD", but got
       confused on a case insensitive filesystem and failed to do so.

     * "git fetch --all", when passed "--no-tags", did not honor the
       "--no-tags" option while fetching from individual remotes (the same
       issue existed with "--tags", but combination "--all --tags" makes
       much less sense than "--all --no-tags").

     * "git log/diff/format-patch --stat" showed the "N line(s) added"
       comment in user's locale and caused careless submitters to send
       patches with such a line in them to projects whose project language
       is not their language, mildly irritating others. Localization to
       the line has been disabled for now.

     * "git log --all-match --grep=A --grep=B" ought to show commits that
       mention both A and B, but when these three options are used with
       --author or --committer, it showed commits that mention either A or
       B (or both) instead.

     * The subcommand to remove the definition of a remote in "git remote"
       was named "rm" even though all other subcommands were spelled out.
       Introduce "git remote remove" to remove confusion, and keep "rm" as
       a backward compatible synonym.

    Also contains a handful of documentation updates.

Tue Sep 25 00:01:38 CST 2012 -

- updated to version

    * "git apply -p0" did not parse pathnames on "diff --git" line
       correctly.  This caused patches that had pathnames in no other
       places to be mistakenly rejected (most notably, binary patch that
       does not rename nor change mode).  Textual patches, renames or mode
       changes have preimage and postimage pathnames in different places
       in a form that can be parsed unambiguously and did not suffer from
       this problem.

     * "git cherry-pick A C B" used to replay changes in A and then B and
       then C if these three commits had committer timestamps in that
       order, which is not what the user who said "A C B" naturally

     * "git commit --amend" let the user edit the log message and then
       died when the human-readable committer name was given
       insufficiently by getpwent(3).

     * Some capabilities were asked by fetch-pack even when upload-pack
       did not advertise that they are available.  fetch-pack has been
       fixed not to do so.

     * "git diff" had a confusion between taking data from a path in the
       working tree and taking data from an object that happens to have
       name 0{40} recorded in a tree.

     * "git for-each-ref" did not correctly support more than one --sort

     * "git log .." errored out saying it is both rev range and a path
       when there is no disambiguating "--" is on the command line.
       Update the command line parser to interpret ".." as a path in such
       a case.

     * The "--topo-order", "--date-order" (and the lack of either means
       the default order) options to "rev-list" and "log" family of
       commands were poorly described in the documentation.

     * "git prune" without "-v" used to warn about leftover temporary
       files (which is an indication of an earlier aborted operation).

     * Pushing to smart HTTP server with recent Git fails without having
       the username in the URL to force authentication, if the server is
       configured to allow GET anonymously, while requiring authentication
       for POST.

     * The reflog entries left by "git rebase" and "git rebase -i" were
       inconsistent (the interactive one gave an abbreviated object name).

     * When "git push" triggered the automatic gc on the receiving end, a
       message from "git prune" that said it was removing cruft leaked to
       the standard output, breaking the communication protocol.

     * "git show --quiet" ought to be a synonym for "git show -s", but

     * "git show --format='%ci'" did not give timestamp correctly for
       commits created without human readable name on "committer" line.

     * "git send-email" did not unquote encoded words that appear on the
       header correctly, and lost "_" from strings.

     * The interactive prompt "git send-email" gives was error prone. It
       asked "What e-mail address do you want to use?" with the address it
       guessed (correctly) the user would want to use in its prompt,
       tempting the user to say "y". But the response was taken as "No,
       please use 'y' as the e-mail address instead", which is most
       certainly not what the user meant.

     * "gitweb" when used with PATH_INFO failed to notice directories with
       SP (and other characters that need URL-style quoting) in them.

     * When the user gives an argument that can be taken as both a
       revision name and a pathname without disambiguating with "--", we
       used to give a help message "Use '--' to separate".  The message
       has been clarified to show where that '--' goes on the command

     * When the user exports a non-default IFS without HT, scripts that
       rely on being able to parse "ls-files -s | while read a b c..."
       started to fail.  Protect them from such a misconfiguration.

     * The attribute system may be asked for a path that itself or its
       leading directories no longer exists in the working tree, and it is
       fine if we cannot open .gitattribute file in such a case.  Failure
       to open per-directory .gitattributes with error status other than
       ENOENT and ENOTDIR should be diagnosed, but it wasn't.

     * After "gitk" showed the contents of a tag, neither "Reread
       references" nor "Reload" did not update what is shown as the
       contents of it, when the user overwrote the tag with "git tag -f".

     * "ciabot" script (in contrib/) has been updated with extensive

     * "git-jump" script (in contrib/) did not work well when
       diff.noprefix or diff.mnemonicprefix is in effect.

     * Older parts of the documentation described as if having a regular
       file in .git/refs/ hierarchy were the only way to have branches and
       tags, which is not true for quite some time.

     * A utility shell function test_seq has been added as a replacement
       for the 'seq' utility found on some platforms.

     * Compatibility wrapper to learn the maximum number of file
       descriptors we can open around sysconf(_SC_OPEN_MAX) and
       getrlimit(RLIMIT_NO_FILE) has been introduced for portability.

     * We used curl_easy_strerror() without checking version of cURL,
       breaking the build for versions before curl 7.12.0.

     * Code to work around MacOS X UTF-8 gotcha has been cleaned up.

     * Fallback 'getpass' implementation made unportable use of stdio API.

     * The "--rebase" option to "git pull" can be abbreviated to "-r",
       but we didn't document it.

     * It was generally understood that "--long-option"s to many of our
       subcommands can be abbreviated to the unique prefix, but it was not
       easy to find it described for new readers of the documentation set.

     * The synopsis said "checkout [-B branch]" to make it clear the
       branch name is a parameter to the option, but the heading for the
       option description was "-B::", not "-B branch::", making the
       documentation misleading.

    Also contains numerous documentation updates.

  option (bnc#779536)

Thu Aug 16 11:57:53 CEST 2012 -

- updated to version
  * The Makefile rule to create assembly output (primarily for
   debugging purposes) did not create it next to the source.
 * The code to avoid mistaken attempt to add the object directory
   itself as its own alternate could read beyond end of a string while
 * On some architectures, "block-sha1" did not compile correctly
   when compilers inferred alignment guarantees from our source we
   did not intend to make.
 * When talking to a remote running ssh on IPv6 enabled host, whose
   address is spelled as "[HOST]:PORT", we did not parse the address
   correctly and failed to connect.
 * git-blame.el (in compat/) have been updated to use Elisp more
 * "git checkout <branchname>" to come back from a detached HEAD state
   incorrectly computed reachability of the detached HEAD, resulting
   in unnecessary warnings.
 * "git mergetool" did not support --tool-help option to give the list
   of supported backends, like "git difftool" does.
 * "git grep" stopped spawning an external "grep" long time ago, but a
   duplicated test to check internal and external "grep" was left

Tue Aug  7 14:48:24 CEST 2012 -

- updated to version 1.7.11:

  git-grep, git-rebase, updated translations and documents.
  See Documentation/RelNotes/ for details.

Tue May 29 11:13:32 CEST 2012 -

- updated to version
 * From this release on, the "git merge" command in an interactive
   session will start an editor when it automatically resolves the
   merge for the user to explain the resulting commit, just like the
   "git commit" command does when it wasn't given a commit message.

 * The "--binary/-b" options to "git am" have been a no-op for quite a
   while and were deprecated in mid 2008 (v1.6.0).  When you give these
   options to "git am", it will now warn and ask you not to use them.

 * When you do not tell which branches and tags to push to the "git
   push" command in any way, the command used "matching refs" rule to
   update remote branches and tags with branches and tags with the
   same name you locally have.

  See details and more changes in Documentation/RelNotes/1.7.10.txt,, and

Tue May  1 16:40:22 UTC 2012 -

- Fix build on SLE_11, seems %files there doesn't support more
  than one -f option

Mon Feb 27 11:43:15 UTC 2012 -

- Update to version
  * Bash completion script (in contrib/) did not like a pattern that
    begins with a dash to be passed to __git_ps1 helper function.
  * Adaptation of the bash completion script (in contrib/) for zsh
    incorrectly listed all subcommands when "git <TAB><TAB>" was given
    to ask for list of porcelain subcommands.
  * The build procedure for profile-directed optimized binary was not
    working very well.
  * Some systems need to explicitly link -lcharset to get locale_charset().
  * t5541 ignored user-supplied port number used for HTTP server testing.
  * The error message emitted when we see an empty loose object was
    not phrased correctly.
  * The code to ask for password did not fall back to the terminal
    input when GIT_ASKPASS is set but does not work (e.g. lack of X
    with GUI askpass helper).
  * We failed to give the true terminal width to any subcommand when
    they are invoked with the pager, i.e. "git -p cmd".
  * map_user() was not rewriting its output correctly, which resulted
    in the user visible symptom that "git blame -e" sometimes showed
    excess '>' at the end of email addresses.
  * "git checkout -b" did not allow switching out of an unborn branch.
  * When you have both .../foo and .../foo.git, "git clone .../foo" did not
    favor the former but the latter.
  * "git commit" refused to create a commit when entries added with
    "add -N" remained in the index, without telling Git what their content
    in the next commit should be. We should have created the commit without
    these paths.
  * "git diff --stat" said "files", "insertions", and "deletions" even
    when it is showing one "file", one "insertion" or one "deletion".
  * The output from "git diff --stat" for two paths that have the same
    amount of changes showed graph bars of different length due to the
    way we handled rounding errors.
  * "git grep" did not pay attention to -diff (hence -binary) attribute.
  * The transport programs (fetch, push, clone)ignored --no-progress
    and showed progress when sending their output to a terminal.
  * Sometimes error status detected by a check in an earlier phase of
    "git receive-pack" (the other end of "git push") was lost by later
    checks, resulting in false indication of success.
  * "git rev-list --verify" sometimes skipped verification depending on
    the phase of the moon, which dates back to 1.7.8.x series.
  * Search box in "gitweb" did not accept non-ASCII characters correctly.
  * Search interface of "gitweb" did not show multiple matches in the same file

Thu Feb  9 10:04:38 CET 2012 -

- updated to v1.7.9:
 * gitk updates accumulated since early 2011.

 * git-gui updated to 0.16.0.

 * git-p4 (in contrib/) updates.

 * Git uses gettext to translate its most common interface messages
   into the user's language if translations are available and the
   locale is appropriately set. Distributors can drop new PO files
   in po/ to add new translations.

 * The code to handle username/password for HTTP transactions used in
   "git push" & "git fetch" learned to talk "credential API" to
   external programs to cache or store them, to allow integration with
   platform native keychain mechanisms.

 * The input prompts in the terminal use our own getpass() replacement
   when possible. HTTP transactions used to ask for the username without
   echoing back what was typed, but with this change you will see it as
   you type.

 * The internals of "revert/cherry-pick" have been tweaked to prepare
   building more generic "sequencer" on top of the implementation that
   drives them.

 * "git rev-parse FETCH_HEAD" after "git fetch" without specifying
   what to fetch from the command line will now show the commit that
   would be merged if the command were "git pull".

 * "git add" learned to stream large files directly into a packfile
   instead of writing them into individual loose object files.

 * "git checkout -B <current branch> <elsewhere>" is a more intuitive
   way to spell "git reset --keep <elsewhere>".

 * "git checkout" and "git merge" learned "--no-overwrite-ignore" option
   to tell Git that untracked and ignored files are not expendable.

 * "git commit --amend" learned "--no-edit" option to say that the
   user is amending the tree being recorded, without updating the
   commit log message.

 * "git commit" and "git reset" re-learned the optimization to prime
   the cache-tree information in the index, which makes it faster to
   write a tree object out after the index entries are updated.

 * "git commit" detects and rejects an attempt to stuff NUL byte in
   the commit log message.

 * "git commit" learned "-S" to GPG-sign the commit; this can be shown
   with the "--show-signature" option to "git log".

 * fsck and prune are relatively lengthy operations that still go
   silent while making the end-user wait. They learned to give progress
   output like other slow operations.

 * The set of built-in function-header patterns for various languages
   knows MATLAB.

 * "git log --format='<format>'" learned new %g[nNeE] specifiers to
   show information from the reflog entries when walking the reflog
   (i.e. with "-g").

 * "git pull" can be used to fetch and merge an annotated/signed tag,
   instead of the tip of a topic branch. The GPG signature from the
   signed tag is recorded in the resulting merge commit for later

 * "git log" learned "--show-signature" option to show the signed tag
   that was merged that is embedded in the merge commit. It also can
   show the signature made on the commit with "git commit -S".

 * "git branch --edit-description" can be used to add descriptive text
   to explain what a topic branch is about.

 * "git fmt-merge-msg" learned to take the branch description into
   account when preparing a merge summary that "git merge" records
   when merging a local branch.

 * "git request-pull" has been updated to convey more information
   useful for integrators to decide if a topic is worth merging and
   what is pulled is indeed what the requestor asked to pull,

   - the tip of the branch being requested to be merged;
   - the branch description describing what the topic is about;
   - the contents of the annotated tag, when requesting to pull a tag.

 * "git pull" learned to notice 'pull.rebase' configuration variable,
   which serves as a global fallback for setting 'branch.<name>.rebase'
   configuration variable per branch.

 * "git tag" learned "--cleanup" option to control how the whitespaces
   and empty lines in tag message are cleaned up.

 * "gitweb" learned to show side-by-side diff.

Fri Jan 27 15:58:06 UTC 2012 -

- Added the ability to specify the user and group that git-daemon run
  as (bnc#742661).

Wed Jan 11 12:41:46 UTC 2012 -

- Update to v1.7.8.3

  * Attempt to fetch from an empty file pretending it to be a bundle did
   not error out correctly.

  * gitweb did not correctly fall back to configured $fallback_encoding
   that is not 'latin1'.

  * "git clone --depth $n" did not catch a non-number given as $n as an

  * Porcelain commands like "git reset" did not distinguish deletions
    and type-changes from ordinary modification, and reported them with
    the same 'M' moniker. They now use 'D' (for deletion) and 'T' (for
    type-change) to match "git status -s" and "git diff --name-status".
  * You could make "git commit" segfault by giving the "--no-message"

  * "git checkout -m" did not recreate the conflicted state in a "both
   sides added, without any common ancestor version" conflict

  * git native connection going over TCP (not over SSH) did not set
   SO_KEEPALIVE option which failed to receive link layer errors.

  * "fast-import" did not correctly update an existing notes tree,
   possibly corrupting the fan-out.

  * "git log --follow" did not honor the rename threshold score given
   with the -M option (e.g. "-M50%").

  * Authenticated "git push" over dumb HTTP were broken with a recent
   change and failed without asking for password when username is

  * "git push" to an empty repository over HTTP were broken with a
   recent change to the ref handling.

  * "git push -v" forgot how to be verbose by mistake. It now properly
   becomes verbose when asked to.

  * When a "reword" action in "git rebase -i" failed to run "commit --amend",
   we did not give the control back to the user to resolve the situation, and
   instead kept the original commit log message.

  * "git apply --check" did not error out when given an empty input
   without any patch.

  * "git archive" mistakenly allowed remote clients to ask for commits
   that are not at the tip of any ref.

  * "git checkout" and "git merge" treated in-tree .gitignore and exclude
   file in $GIT_DIR/info/ directory inconsistently when deciding which
   untracked files are ignored and expendable.

  * The function header pattern for files with "diff=cpp" attribute did
   not consider "type *funcname(type param1,..." as the beginning of a

  * The error message from "git diff" and "git status" when they fail
   to inspect changes in submodules did not report which submodule they
   had trouble with.

  * "git pack-objects" avoids creating cyclic dependencies among deltas
   when seeing a broken packfile that records the same object in both
   the deflated form and as a delta.

Tue Dec 13 18:11:00 UTC 2011 -

- Implement %check via make test

- Update to v1.7.8

 New features:

 * The date parser now accepts timezone designators that lack minutes
   part and also has a colon between "hh:mm".
 * The contents of the /etc/mailname file, if exists, is used as the
   default value of the hostname part of the committer/author e-mail.

 * "git am" learned how to read from patches generated by Hg.

 * "git archive" talking with a remote repository can report errors
   from the remote side in a more informative way.

 * "git branch" learned an explicit --list option to ask for branches
   listed, optionally with a glob matching pattern to limit its output.

 * "git check-attr" learned "--cached" option to look at .gitattributes
   files from the index, not from the working tree.

 * Variants of "git cherry-pick" and "git revert" that take multiple
   commits learned to "--continue" and "--abort".

 * "git daemon" gives more human readble error messages to clients
   using ERR packets when appropriate.

 * Errors at the network layer is logged by "git daemon".

 * "git diff" learned "--minimal" option to spend extra cycles to come
   up with a minimal patch output.

 * "git diff" learned "--function-context" option to show the whole
   function as context that was affected by a change.

 * "git difftool" can be told to skip launching the tool for a path by
   answering 'n' to its prompt.

 * "git fetch" learned to honor transfer.fsckobjects configuration to
   validate the objects that were received from the other end, just like
   "git receive-pack" (the receiving end of "git push") does.

 * "git fetch" makes sure that the set of objects it received from the
   other end actually completes the history before updating the refs.
   "git receive-pack" (the receiving end of "git push") learned to do the

 * "git fetch" learned that fetching/cloning from a regular file on the
   filesystem is not necessarily a request to unpack a bundle file; the
   file could be ".git" with "gitdir: <path>" in it.

 * "git for-each-ref" learned "%(contents:subject)", "%(contents:body)"
   and "%(contents:signature)". The last one is useful for signed tags.

 * "git grep" used to incorrectly pay attention to .gitignore files
   scattered in the directory it was working in even when "--no-index"
   option was used. It no longer does this. The "--exclude-standard"
   option needs to be given to explicitly activate the ignore

 * "git grep" learned "--untracked" option, where given patterns are
    searched in untracked (but not ignored) files as well as tracked
    files in the working tree, so that matches in new but not yet
    added files do not get missed.

 * The recursive merge backend no longer looks for meaningless
   existing merges in submodules unless in the outermost merge.

 * "git log" and friends learned "--children" option.

 * "git ls-remote" learned to respond to "-h"(elp) requests.

 * "mediawiki" remote helper can interact with (surprise!) MediaWiki
   with "git fetch" & "git push".

 * "git merge" learned the "--edit" option to allow users to edit the
   merge commit log message.

 * "git rebase -i" can be told to use special purpose editor suitable
   only for its insn sheet via sequence.editor configuration variable.

 * "git send-email" learned to respond to "-h"(elp) requests.

 * "git send-email" allows the value given to sendemail.aliasfile to begin
   with "~/" to refer to the $HOME directory.

 * "git send-email" forces use of Authen::SASL::Perl to work around
   issues between Authen::SASL::Cyrus and AUTH PLAIN/LOGIN.

 * "git stash" learned "--include-untracked" option to stash away
   untracked/ignored cruft from the working tree.

 * "git submodule clone" does not leak an error message to the UI
   level unnecessarily anymore.

 * "git submodule update" learned to honor "none" as the value for
   submodule.<name>.update to specify that the named submodule should
   not be checked out by default.

 * When populating a new submodule directory with "git submodule init",
   the $GIT_DIR metainformation directory for submodules is created inside
   $GIT_DIR/modules/<name>/ directory of the superproject and referenced
   via the gitfile mechanism. This is to make it possible to switch
   between commits in the superproject that has and does not have the
   submodule in the tree without re-cloning.

 * "gitweb" leaked unescaped control characters from syntax hiliter

 * "gitweb" can be told to give custom string at the end of the HTML
   HEAD element.

 * "gitweb" now has its own manual pages.

 Bugfixes since v1.7.7 

 * HTTP transport did not use pushurl correctly, and also did not tell
   what host it is trying to authenticate with when asking for
   (merge deba493 jk/http-auth later to maint).

 * "git blame" was aborted if started from an uncommitted content and
   the path had the textconv filter in effect.
   (merge 8518088 ss/blame-textconv-fake-working-tree later to maint).

 * Adding many refs to the local repository in one go (e.g. "git fetch"
   that fetches many tags) and looking up a ref by name in a repository
   with too many refs were unnecessarily slow.
   (merge 17d68a54d jp/get-ref-dir-unsorted later to maint).

 * Report from "git commit" on untracked files was confused under
   core.ignorecase option.
   (merge 395c7356 jk/name-hash-dirent later to maint).

 * "git merge" did not understand ":/<pattern>" as a way to name a commit.

 " "git push" on the receiving end used to call post-receive and post-update
   hooks for attempted removal of non-existing refs.
   (merge 160b81ed ph/push-to-delete-nothing later to maint).

 * Help text for "git remote set-url" and "git remote set-branches"
   were misspelled.
   (merge c49904e fc/remote-seturl-usage-fix later to maint).
   (merge 656cdf0 jc/remote-setbranches-usage-fix later to maint).

  Notes on behaviour change:
  * "git push" into a branch that is currently checked out (i.e. pointed at by
   HEAD in a repository that is not bare) is refused by default.
 * "git send-email" does not make deep threads by default when sending a
   patch series with more than two messages.  All messages will be sent
   as a reply to the first message, i.e. cover letter.
 * "git status" is not "git commit --dry-run" anymore.  This change does
   not affect you if you run the command without argument.
 * "git diff" traditionally treated various "ignore whitespace" options
   only as a way to filter the patch output.  "git diff --exit-code -b"
   exited with non-zero status even if all changes were about changing the
   amount of whitespace and nothing else;  and "git diff -b" showed the
   "diff --git" header line for such a change without patch text.
 * External diff and textconv helpers are now executed using the shell.
   This makes them consistent with other programs executed by git, and
   allows you to pass command-line parameters to the helpers. Any helper
   paths containing spaces or other metacharacters now need to be
   shell-quoted.  The affected helpers are GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF in the
   environment, and diff.*.command and diff.*.textconv in the config
 * The --max-pack-size argument to 'git repack', 'git pack-objects', and
   'git fast-import' was assuming the provided size to be expressed in MiB,
   unlike the corresponding config variable and other similar options accepting
   a size value.  It is now expecting a size expressed in bytes, with a possible
   unit suffix of 'k', 'm', or 'g'.

- added git-remote-helpers sub-package for python helpers

  * Detailed changelog found at

Mon Apr 20 12:44:42 CEST 2009 -

- updated to
  * The configuration parser had a buffer overflow while parsing
    an overlong value.
  * pruning reflog entries that are unreachable from the tip of
    the ref during "git reflog prune" (hence "git gc") was very
  * "git-add -p" lacked a way to say "q"uit to refuse staging any
    hunks for the remaining paths.  You had to say "d" and then ^C.
  * "git-checkout <tree-ish> <submodule>" did not update the index
    entry at the named path; it now does.
  * "git-fast-export" choked when seeing a tag that does not point
    at commit.  
  * "git init" segfaulted when given an overlong template location
    via the --template= option.
  * "git-ls-tree" and "git-diff-tree" used a pathspec correctly
    when deciding to descend into a subdirectory but they did not
    match the individual paths correctly.  This caused pathspecs
    "abc/d ab" to match "abc/0" ("abc/d" made them decide to
    descend into the directory "abc/", and then "ab" incorrectly
    matched "abc/0" when it shouldn't).
  * "git-merge-recursive" was broken when a submodule entry was
    involved in a criss-cross merge situation.

Thu Apr 16 11:02:04 CEST 2009 -

- updated to
  * A longstanding confusing description of what --pickaxe option
    of git-diff does has been clarified in the documentation.
  * "git-blame -S" did not quite work near the commits that were
    given on the command line correctly.
  * "git diff --pickaxe-regexp" did not count overlapping matches
  * "git diff" did not feed files in work-tree representation to
    external diff and textconv.
  * "git-fetch" in a repository that was not cloned from anywhere
    said it cannot find 'origin', which was hard to understand for
    new people.
  * "git-format-patch --numbered-files --stdout" did not have to
    die of incompatible options; it now simply ignores
    --numbered-files as no files are produced anyway.
  * "git-ls-files --deleted" did not work well with GIT_DIR&GIT_WORK_TREE.
  * "git-read-tree A B C..." without -m option has been broken for
    a long time.
  * git-send-email ignored --in-reply-to when --no-thread was given.
  * 'git-submodule add' did not tolerate extra slashes and ./ in
    the path it accepted from the command line; it now is more lenient.
  * git-svn misbehaved when the project contained a path that began
    with two dashes.
  * import-zips script (in contrib) did not compute the common
    directory prefix correctly.
  * miscompilation of negated enum constants by old gcc (2.9)
    affected the codepaths to spawn subprocesses.
- updated to
  * Setting an octal mode value to core.sharedrepository
    configuration to restrict access to the repository to group
    members did not work as advertised.
  * A fairly large and trivial memory leak while rev-list shows
    list of reachable objects has been identified and plugged.
  * "git-commit --interactive" did not abort when underlying
    "git-add -i" signaled a failure.
  * git-repack (invoked from git-gc) did not work as nicely as it
    should in a repository that borrows objects from neighbours
    via alternates mechanism especially when some packs are marked
    with the ".keep" flag to prevent them from being repacked.
- fix the start-check in git-daemon script (bnc#494824)

Mon Mar 16 09:50:24 CET 2009 -

- updated to
  * .gitignore learned to handle backslash as a quoting mechanism
    for comment introduction character "#".
  * timestamp output in --date=relative mode used to display
    timestamps that are long time ago in the default mode
  * git-add -i/-p now works with non-ASCII pathnames.
  * "git hash-object -w" did not read from the configuration file
    from the correct .git directory.
  * git-send-email learned to correctly handle multiple Cc:

Thu Mar  5 12:24:45 CET 2009 -

- updated to 1.6.2:
  * @{-1} is a way to refer to the last branch you were on.
  * The location of .mailmap file can be configured
  * Improvements on "git add -p"

  * "git blame" aligns author names better
  * "git clone" now makes its best effort when cloning from an
    empty repository
  * "git checkout -" is a shorthand for "git checkout @{-1}".
  * "git cherry" defaults to whatever the current branch is
    tracking (if exists) when the <upstream> argument is not given.
  * "git cvsserver" fixes / improvements
  * New options for "git diff"
  * New options for "git filter-branch"
  * "git fsck" now checks loose objects in alternate object
  * "git gc --prune" was resurrected to allow "git gc --no-prune"
  * New option for "git mergetool"
  * "git rebase -i" can transplant a history down to root
  * "git reset --merge" option
  * "git submodule update" learned --no-fetch option.
  * "git tag" learned --contains
 For more details, see

Mon Feb  9 08:27:53 CET 2009 -

- updated to
  * "git diff --binary | git apply" pipeline did not work well
   when a binary blob is changed to a symbolic link.
  * some combinations of -b/-w/--ignore-space-at-eol to "git diff"
   did not work as expected.
  * "git grep" did not pass the -I (ignore binary) option when
   calling out an external grep program.
  * "git log" and friends include HEAD to the set of starting
   points when --all is given.  This makes a difference when you
   are not on any branch.
  * "git mv" to move an untracked file to overwrite a tracked
   contents misbehaved.
  * "git merge -s octopus" with many potential merge bases did not
   work correctly.
  * RPM binary package installed the html manpages in a wrong
  Also includes minor documentation fixes and updates.

Thu Jan 29 13:24:33 CET 2009 -

- Formatting fix for manual pages.

Thu Jan 29 11:53:19 CET 2009 -

- updated to
  * The logic for rename detectin in internal diff used by commands
    like "git diff" and "git blame" have been optimized to avoid
    loading the same blob repeatedly.
  * We did not allow writing out a blob that is larger than 2GB
    for no good reason.
  * "git format-patch -o $dir", when $dir is a relative directory,
    used it as relative to the root of the work tree, not relative
    to the current directory.
  * v1.6.1 introduced an optimization for "git push" into a
    repository (A) that borrows its objects from another
    repository (B) to avoid sending objects that are available in
    repository B, when they are not yet used by repository A.
    However the code on the "git push" sender side was buggy and
    did not work when repository B had new objects that are not
    known by the sender.  This caused pushing into a "forked"
    repository served by v1.6.1 software using "git push" from
    v1.6.1 sometimes did not work.  The bug was purely on the
    "git push" sender side, and has been corrected.
  * "git status -v" did not paint its diff output in colour even
    when color.ui configuration was set.
  * "git ls-tree" learned --full-tree option to help Porcelain
    scripts that want to always see the full path regardless of the
    current working directory.
  * "git grep" incorrectly searched in work tree paths even when
    they are marked as assume-unchanged.  It now searches in the
    index entries.
  * "git gc" with no grace period needlessly ejected packed but
    unreachable objects in their loose form, only to delete them
    right away.

Mon Jan 26 12:21:15 CET 2009 -

- updated to
  * "git add frotz/nitfol" when "frotz" is a submodule should have
    errored out, but it didn't.
  * "git apply" took file modes from the patch text and updated
    the mode bits of the target tree even when the patch was not
    about mode changes.
  * "git bisect view" on Cygwin did not launch gitk
  * "git checkout $tree" did not trigger an error.
  * "git commit" tried to remove COMMIT_EDITMSG from the work tree
    by mistake.
  * "git describe --all" complained when a commit is described
    with a tag, which was nonsense.
  * "git diff --no-index --" did not trigger no-index (aka "use
    git-diff as a replacement of diff on untracked files") behaviour.
  * "git format-patch -1 HEAD" on a root commit failed to produce
    patch text.
  * "git fsck branch" did not work as advertised; instead it
    behaved the same way as "git fsck".
  * "git log --pretty=format:%s" did not handle a multi-line
    subject the same way as built-in log listers (i.e. shortlog,
    --pretty=oneline, etc.)
  * "git daemon", and "git merge-file" are more careful when freopen
    fails and barf, instead of going on and writing to unopened
  * "git http-push" did not like some RFC 4918 compliant DAV server
  * "git merge -s recursive" mistakenly overwritten an untracked
    file in the work tree upon delete/modify conflict.
  * "git merge -s recursive" didn't leave the index unmerged for
    entries with rename/delete conflictd.
  * "git merge -s recursive" clobbered untracked files in the work
  * "git mv -k" with more than one errorneous paths misbehaved.
  * "git read-tree -m -u" hence branch switching incorrectly lost
    a subdirectory in rare cases.
  * "git rebase -i" issued an unnecessary error message upon a user
    error of marking the first commit to be "squash"ed.
  * "git shortlog" did not format a commit message with multi-line
    subject correctly.

Thu Jan  8 15:55:42 CET 2009 -

  * handle properly the exit code when pager is used

  * After amending the patch title in "git-am -i", the command did not

Tue Jan  8 10:12:16 CET 2008 -

- git-cvsserver was unusable, it produced a perl failed-compilation error
   due to missing dependency on perl-DBD-Sqlite.
- update to version
 * git-send-email added 8-bit contents to the payload without
   marking it as 8-bit in a CTE header.
 * "git-bundle create a.bndl HEAD" dereferenced the symref and
   did not record the ref as 'HEAD'; this prevented a bundle
   from being used as a normal source of git-clone.
 * The code to reject nonsense command line of the form
   "git-commit -a paths..." and "git-commit --interactive
   paths..." were broken.
 * Adding a signature that is not ASCII-only to an original
   commit that is ASCII-only would make the result non-ASCII.
   "git-format-patch -s" did not mark such a message correctly
   with MIME encoding header.
 * git-add sometimes did not mark the resulting index entry
   stat-clean.  This affected only cases when adding the
   contents with the same length as the previously staged
   contents, and the previous staging made the index entry
   "racily clean".
 * git-commit did not honor GIT_INDEX_FILE the user had in the
 * When checking out a revision, git-checkout did not report where the
   updated HEAD is if you happened to have a file called HEAD in the
   work tree.
 * "git-rev-list --objects" mishandled a tree that points at a
 * "git cvsimport" was not ready for packed refs that "git gc" can
   produce and gave incorrect results.
 * Many scripted Porcelains were confused when you happened to have a
   file called "HEAD" in your work tree.

     referred to by a tree object (aka "subproject").
