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 v1.7.5.3 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.5.2

* The bash completion scripts should correctly work using zsh's bash
completion emulation layer now.

* Setting $(prefix) in config.mak did not affect where etc/gitconfig
file is read from, even though passing it from the command line of
$(MAKE) did.

* The logic to handle "&" (expand to UNIX username) in GECOS field
miscounted the length of the name it formatted.

* "git cherry-pick -s resolve" failed to cherry-pick a root commit.

* "git diff --word-diff" misbehaved when diff.suppress-blank-empty was
in effect.

* "git log --stdin path" with an input that has additional pathspec
used to corrupt memory.

* "git send-pack" (hence "git push") over smalt-HTTP protocol could
deadlock when the client side pack-object died early.

* Compressed tarball gitweb generates used to be made with the timestamp
of the tarball generation; this was bad because snapshot from the same
tree should result in a same tarball.

And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
