Git 22.214.171.124 Release Notes
Fixes since v126.96.36.199
The attribute mechanism didn’t allow limiting attributes to be
applied to only a single directory itself with “path/” like the
exclude mechanism does. The fix for this in 188.8.131.52 had
Command line completion code was inadvertently made incompatible with
older versions of bash by using a newer array notation.
Scripts to test bash completion was inherently flaky as it was
affected by whatever random things the user may have on $PATH.
A fix was added to the build procedure to work around buggy
versions of ccache broke the auto-generation of dependencies, which
unfortunately is still relevant because some people use ancient
We used to stuff “user@” and then append what we read from
/etc/mailname to come up with a default e-mail ident, but a bug
lost the “user@” part.
“git am” did not parse datestamp correctly from Hg generated patch,
when it is run in a locale outside C (or en).
Attempt to “branch –edit-description” an existing branch, while
being on a detached HEAD, errored out.
“git cherry-pick” did not replay a root commit to an unborn branch.
We forgot to close the file descriptor reading from “gpg” output,
killing “git log –show-signature” on a long history.
“git rebase –preserve-merges” lost empty merges in recent versions
Rebasing the history of superproject with change in the submodule
has been broken since v1.7.12.
A failure to push due to non-ff while on an unborn branch
dereferenced a NULL pointer when showing an error message.
Also contains various documentation fixes.
