Git 1.6.6.rc2

A release candidate Git 1.6.6.rc2 is available at the usual places
for testing:
git-1.6.6.rc2.tar.{gz,bz2}                    (source tarball)
git-htmldocs-1.6.6.rc2.tar.{gz,bz2}           (preformatted docs)
git-manpages-1.6.6.rc2.tar.{gz,bz2}           (preformatted docs)

The RPM binary packages for a few architectures are found in:

testing/git-*-1.6.6.rc2-1.fc11.$arch.rpm      (RPM)
