Git v1.7.0.3 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.0.2

  • Object files are created in a more ACL friendly way in repositories
    where group permission is ACL controlled.

  • “git add -i” didn’t handle a deleted path very well.

  • “git blame” padded line numbers with one extra SP when the total number
    of lines was one less than multiple of ten due to an off-by-one error.

  • “git fetch –all/–multi” used to discard information for remotes that
    are fetched earlier.

  • “git log –author=me –grep=it” tried to find commits that have “it”
    or are written by “me”, instead of the ones that have “it” and are
    written by “me”.

  • “git log -g branch” misbehaved when there was no entries in the reflog
    for the named branch.

  • “git mailinfo” (hence “git am”) incorrectly removed initial indent from

  • “git prune” and “git reflog” (hence “git gc” as well) didn’t honor
    an instruction never to expire by setting gc.reflogexpire to never.

  • “git push” misbehaved when branch.<name>.merge was configured without
    matching branch.<name>.remote.

And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
