GIT v1.6.4.3 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.6.4.2

  • “git clone” from an empty repository gave unnecessary error message,
    even though it did everything else correctly.

  • “git cvsserver” invoked git commands via “git-foo” style, which has long
    been deprecated.

  • “git fetch” and “git clone” had an extra sanity check to verify the
    presense of the corresponding .pack file before downloading .idx
    file by issuing a HEAD request. Github server however sometimes
    gave 500 (Internal server error) response to HEAD even if a GET
    request for *.pack file to the same URL would have succeeded, and broke
    clone over HTTP from some of their repositories. As a workaround, this
    verification has been removed (as it is not absolutely necessary).

  • “git grep” did not like relative pathname to refer outside the current
    directory when run from a subdirectory.

  • an error message from “git push” was formatted in a very ugly way.

  • “git svn” did not quote the subversion user name correctly when
    running its author-prog helper program.

Other minor documentation updates are included.
