SubjectWhat's in git.git
It's been a while since I've done v1.4.0, and I haven't fully
caught up with the list traffic yet, but here is the current

I'm planning to manage the v1.4.X series a bit differently
during this round. So far, they were supposed to be fix-only on
top of v1.4.0, but people who follow the maintenance series
(including the binary packages) missed out on too many good
stuff that happen on the "master" branch. Also presses like tended to cover the maint series which gets stale pretty

So I'll first merge only post-1.4.0 fixes and additions to the
"master" branch until we are comfortable with its shape, tag it
as 1.4.1, and continue. Essentially, "next" and "pu" will
become the playpens (the first being "not proven but fixable"
changes, the latter being "under consideration, but will not be
missed if dropped" changes) their names originally implied, and
"master" will be what "maint" was supposed to be -- fixes and
good changes. The old fixes-only maintenance on "maint" branch
will be halted for now -- except maybe when some urgent fixes
are needed, I might do 1.4.X.Y like the kernel folks do.

* The 'master' branch has these since v1.4.0

read-tree: --prefix=<path>/ option.
write-tree: --prefix=<path>
read-tree: reorganize bind_merge code.

I'll have them graduate to "master" soon, as they do not seem
to hurt anybody.

fetch-pack: give up after getting too many "ack continue"

Maybe merge to "master" and see what it breaks.

shared repository: optionally allow reading to "others".

This should be ready. I just want to do another round of

This is more for the entertainment value than for practical

Johannes Schindelin:
Read configuration also from ~/.gitconfig
repo-config: learn the flag "--no-local"

I see Pasky has proposed another config change (this time,
not "also from" but "alternatively from") -- I am not sure
which one is more appropriate. Waiting for Johannes's
response to Pasky's message and hoping the list can agree on
a single patch series to apply to "next".

Teach diff about -b and -w flags

Yakov Lerner:
auto-detect changed prefix and/or changed build flags

I think this is fine, except that test-prefix-change target
is probably unneeded as Martin noticed.
