GIT v1.5.1.1 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.5.1

* Documentation updates

- The --left-right option of rev-list and friends is documented.

- The documentation for cvsimport has been majorly improved.

- "git-show-ref --exclude-existing" was documented.

* Bugfixes

- The implementation of -p option in "git cvsexportcommit" had
the meaning of -C (context reduction) option wrong, and
loosened the context requirements when it was told to be

- "git cvsserver" did not behave like the real cvsserver when
client side removed a file from the working tree without
doing anything else on the path. In such a case, it should
restore it from the checked out revision.

- "git fsck" issued an alarming error message on detached
HEAD. It is not an error since at least 1.5.0.

- "git send-email" produced of References header of unbounded length;
fixed this with line-folding.

- "git archive" to download from remote site should not
require you to be in a git repository, but it incorrectly

- "git apply" ignored -p<n> for "diff --git" formatted

- "git rerere" recorded a conflict that had one side empty
(the other side adds) incorrectly; this made merging in the
other direction fail to use previously recorded resolution.

- t4200 test was broken where "wc -l" pads its output with

- "git branch -m old new" to rename branch did not work
without a configuration file in ".git/config".

- The sample hook for notification e-mail was misnamed.

- gitweb did not show type-changing patch correctly in the
blobdiff view.

- git-svn did not error out with incorrect command line options.

- git-svn fell into an infinite loop when insanely long commit
message was found.

- git-svn dcommit and rebase was confused by patches that were
merged from another branch that is managed by git-svn.
