    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.
