Subject[ANNOUNCE] Git 1.7.9.1
Date
The latest maintenance release Git 1.7.9.1 is now available at the usual
places. This is primarily to fix various user experience kinks in the new
feature added in 1.7.9 release, so that there no longer is an excuse for
users to hold on to older releases.

The release tarballs are found at:

http://code.google.com/p/git-core/downloads/list

and their SHA-1 checksums are:

bd85327627f96c4e98071a4d1d32c30f210aa54a git-1.7.9.1.tar.gz
de5ad73499cfdb08e261bc481c84a75f11b7ff0f git-htmldocs-1.7.9.1.tar.gz
8c6ee031b39da5c5e53f927952838796e0959ce9 git-manpages-1.7.9.1.tar.gz

Also the following public repositories all have a copy of the v1.7.9.1
tag and the maint branch that the tag points at:

url = git://repo.or.cz/alt-git.git
url = https://code.google.com/p/git-core/
url = git://git.sourceforge.jp/gitroot/git-core/git.git
url = git://git-core.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/git-core/git-core
url = https://github.com/gitster/git

Have fun.

Git v1.7.9.1 Release Notes
==========================
Fixes since v1.7.9
------------------
* The makefile allowed environment variable X seep into it result in
command names suffixed with unnecessary strings.

* The set of included header files in compat/inet-{ntop,pton}
wrappers was updated for Windows some time ago, but in a way that
broke Solaris build.
* rpmbuild noticed an unpackaged but installed *.mo file and failed.

* Subprocesses spawned from various git programs were often left running
to completion even when the top-level process was killed.

* "git add -e" learned not to show a diff for an otherwise unmodified
submodule that only has uncommitted local changes in the patch
prepared by for the user to edit.

* Typo in "git branch --edit-description my-tpoic" was not diagnosed.

* Using "git grep -l/-L" together with options -W or --break may not
make much sense as the output is to only count the number of hits
and there is no place for file breaks, but the latter options made
"-l/-L" to miscount the hits.

* "git log --first-parent $pathspec" did not stay on the first parent
chain and veered into side branch from which the whole change to the
specified paths came.

* "git merge --no-edit $tag" failed to honor the --no-edit option.

* "git merge --ff-only $tag" failed because it cannot record the
required mergetag without creating a merge, but this is so common
operation for branch that is used _only_ to follow the upstream, so
it was changed to allow fast-forwarding without recording the mergetag.

* "git mergetool" now gives an empty file as the common base version
to the backend when dealing with the "both sides added, differently"
case.

* "git push -q" was not sufficiently quiet.

* When "git push" fails to update any refs, the client side did not
report an error correctly to the end user.

* "rebase" and "commit --amend" failed to work on commits with ancient
timestamps near year 1970.

* When asking for a tag to be pulled, "request-pull" did not show the
name of the tag prefixed with "tags/", which would have helped older
clients.

* "git submodule add $path" forgot to recompute the name to be stored
in .gitmodules when the submodule at $path was once added to the
superproject and already initialized.

* Many small corner case bugs on "git tag -n" was corrected.

Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
