GIT v1.5.4.4 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.5.4.3

* Building and installing with an overtight umask such as 077 made
installed templates unreadable by others, while the rest of the install
are done in a way that is friendly to umask 022.

* "git cvsexportcommit -w $cvsdir" misbehaved when GIT_DIR is set to a
relative directory.

* "git http-push" had an invalid memory access that could lead it to

* When "git rebase -i" gave control back to the user for a commit that is
marked to be edited, it just said "modify it with commit --amend",
without saying what to do to continue after modifying it. Give an
explicit instruction to run "rebase --continue" to be more helpful.

* "git send-email" in issued a bogus empty In-Reply-To: header.

* "git bisect" showed mysterious "won't bisect on seeked tree" error message.
This was leftover from Cogito days to prevent "bisect" starting from a
cg-seeked state. We still keep the Cogito safety, but running "git bisect
start" when another bisect was in effect will clean up and start over.

* "git push" with an explicit PATH to receive-pack did not quite work if
receive-pack was not on usual PATH. We earlier fixed the same issue
with "git fetch" and upload-pack, but somehow forgot to do so in the
other direction.

* git-gui's info dialog was not displayed correctly when the user tries
to commit nothing (i.e. without staging anything).

* "git revert" did not properly fail when attempting to run with a
dirty index.

* "git merge --no-commit --no-ff <other>" incorrectly made commits.

* "git merge --squash --no-ff <other>", which is a nonsense combination
of options, was not rejected.

* "git ls-remote" and "git remote show" against an empty repository
failed, instead of just giving an empty result (regression).

* "git fast-import" did not handle a renamed path whose name needs to be
quoted, due to a bug in unquote_c_style() function.

* "git cvsexportcommit" was confused when multiple files with the same
basename needed to be pushed out in the same commit.

* "git daemon" did not send early errors to syslog.

* "git log --merge" did not work well with --left-right option.

* "git svn" promprted for client cert password every time it accessed the

* The reset command in "git fast-import" data stream was documented to
end with an optional LF, but it actually required one.

* "git svn dcommit/rebase" did not honor --rewrite-root option.

Also included are a handful documentation updates.
