GIT v1.6.5.2 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.6.5.1

  • Installation of templates triggered a bug in busybox when using tar
    implementation from it.

  • “git add -i” incorrectly ignored paths that are already in the index
    if they matched .gitignore patterns.

  • “git describe —always” should have produced some output even there
    were no tags in the repository, but it didn’t.

  • “git ls-files” when showing tracked files incorrectly paid attention
    to the exclude patterns.

Other minor documentation updates are included.
