Git 1.7.2.2

The latest maintenance release Git 1.7.2.2 is available at the
usual places:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/
git-1.7.2.2.tar.{gz,bz2}                      (source tarball)
git-htmldocs-1.7.2.2.tar.{gz,bz2}             (preformatted docs)
git-manpages-1.7.2.2.tar.{gz,bz2}             (preformatted docs)

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

RPMS/$arch/git-*-1.7.2.2-1.fc11.$arch.rpm     (RPM)

This is primarily for fixing a hanging bug in the smart http transport,
but also comes with a lot of documentation udpates.

Git v1.7.2.2 Release Notes
==========================

Fixes since v1.7.2.1
  • Object transfer over smart http transport deadlocked the client when
    the remote HTTP server returned a failure, instead of erroring it out.

  • git-gui honors custom textconv filters when showing diff and blame;

  • git diff –relative=subdir (without the necessary trailing /) did not
    work well;

  • “git diff-files -p –submodule” was recently broken;

  • “git checkout -b n :/token” did not work;

  • “git index-pack” (hence “git fetch/clone/pull/push”) enabled the object
    replacement machinery by mistake (it never should have);

And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
