    git-manpages-{gz,bz2} (preformatted docs)
    RPMS/$arch/git-*-$arch.rpm (RPM)

    There are many fixes including a handful bugs that led to

    GIT v1.5.3.5 Release Notes

    Fixes since v1.5.3.4

    * Comes with git-gui 0.8.4.

    * "git-config" silently ignored options after --list; now it will
    error out with a usage message.

    * "git-config --file" failed if the argument used a relative path
    as it changed directories before opening the file.

    * "git-config --file" now displays a proper error message if it
    cannot read the file specified on the command line.

    * "git-config", "git-diff", "git-apply" failed if run from a
    subdirectory with relative GIT_DIR and GIT_WORK_TREE set.

    * "git-blame" crashed if run during a merge conflict.

    * "git-add -i" did not handle single line hunks correctly.

    * "git-rebase -i" and "git-stash apply" failed if external diff
    drivers were used for one or more files in a commit. They now
    avoid calling the external diff drivers.

    * "git-log --follow" did not work unless diff generation (e.g. -p)
    was also requested.

    * "git-log --follow -B" did not work at all. Fixed.

    * "git-log -M -B" did not correctly handle cases of very large files
    being renamed and replaced by very small files in the same commit.

    * "git-log" printed extra newlines between commits when a diff
    was generated internally (e.g. -S or --follow) but not displayed.

    * "git-push" error message is more helpful when pushing to a
    repository with no matching refs and none specified.

    * "git-push" now respects + (force push) on wildcard refspecs,
    matching the behavior of git-fetch.

    * "git-filter-branch" now updates the working directory when it
    has finished filtering the current branch.

    * "git-instaweb" no longer fails on Mac OS X.

    * "git-cvsexportcommit" didn't always create new parent directories
    before trying to create new child directories. Fixed.

    * "git-fetch" printed a scary (but bogus) error message while
    fetching a tag that pointed to a tree or blob. The error did
    not impact correctness, only user perception. The bogus error
    is no longer printed.

    * "git-ls-files --ignored" did not properly descend into non-ignored
    directories that themselves contained ignored files if d_type
    was not supported by the filesystem. This bug impacted systems
    such as AFS. Fixed.

    * Git segfaulted when reading an invalid .gitattributes file. Fixed.

    * post-receive-email example hook fixed was fixed for
    non-fast-forward updates.

    * Documentation updates for supported (but previously undocumented)
    options of "git-archive" and "git-reflog".

    * "make clean" no longer deletes the configure script that ships
    with the git tarball, making multiple architecture builds easier.

    * "git-remote show origin" spewed a warning message from Perl
    when no remote is defined for the current branch via
    branch.<name>.remote configuration settings.

    * Building with NO_PERL_MAKEMAKER excessively rebuilt contents
    of perl/ subdirectory by rewriting perl.mak.

    * http.sslVerify configuration settings were not used in scripted

    * "git-add" leaked a bit of memory while scanning for files to add.

    * A few workarounds to squelch false warnings from recent gcc have
    been added.

    * "git-send-pack $remote frotz" segfaulted when there is nothing
    named 'frotz' on the local end.

    * "git-rebase -interactive" did not handle its "--strategy" option
