Subject[ANNOUNCE] GIT 1.5.0-rc3
It's been a week and a half, and here comes the -rc3

git-1.5.0-rc3.tar.{gz,bz2} (tarball)
git-htmldocs-1.5.0-rc3.tar.{gz,bz2} (preformatted docs)
git-manpages-1.5.0-rc3.tar.{gz,bz2} (preformatted docs)
testing/git-*-1.5.0-rc3-1.$arch.rpm (RPM)

Hopefully this will be the last -rc before the final 1.5.0.

This contains the "git user's manual" by J. Bruce Fields. While
it still has its own "To Do" section, it has already been in a
very good shape for some time, giving information with coherence
and guiding a new user in a carefully chosen order of topics
into much more pleasant git experience than before.


Changes since v1.5.0-rc2 are as follows:
