Git v1.8.5.1 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.8.5

  • “git submodule init” copied “submodule.$name.update” settings from
    .gitmodules to .git/config without making sure if the suggested
    value was sensible.

Changes since v1.8.5 are as follows:

Junio C Hamano (3):
      submodule: do not copy unknown update mode from .gitmodules

Nick Townsend (1):
      ref-iteration doc: add_submodule_odb() returns 0 for success
