Subject[ANNOUNCE] Git
The latest maintenance release Git is available at the
usual places:

git-{gz,bz2} (source tarball)
git-htmldocs-{gz,bz2} (preformatted docs)
git-manpages-{gz,bz2} (preformatted docs)
The RPM binary packages for a few architectures are found in:

RPMS/$arch/git-*-$arch.rpm (RPM)

Git v1.7.4.3 Release Notes
Fixes since v1.7.4.2
* "git apply" used to confuse lines updated by previous hunks as lines
that existed before when applying a hunk, contributing misapplication
of patches with offsets.

* "git branch --track" (and "git checkout --track --branch") used to
allow setting up a random non-branch that does not make sense to follow
as the "upstream". The command correctly diagnoses it as an error.

* "git checkout $other_branch" silently removed untracked symbolic links
in the working tree that are in the way in order to check out paths
under it from the named branch.

* "git cvsimport" did not bail out immediately when the cvs server cannot
be reached, spewing unnecessary error messages that complain about the
server response that it never got.

* "git diff --quiet" did not work very well with the "--diff-filter"

* "git grep -n" lacked a long-hand synonym --line-number.

* "git stash apply" reported the result of its operation by running
"git status" from the top-level of the working tree; it should (and
now does) run it from the user's working directory.

And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
