Fedora Update Notification
2011-02-15 17:22:38

Name        : git
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     :
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://git-scm.com/
Summary     : Fast Version Control System
Description :
Git is a fast, scalable, distributed revision control system with an
unusually rich command set that provides both high-level operations
and full access to internals.

The git rpm installs the core tools with minimal dependencies.  To
install all git packages, including tools for integrating with other
SCMs, install the git-all meta-package.

Update Information:

Fixes since v1.7.4

* On Windows platform, the codepath to spawn a new child process forgot to first flush the output buffer.

* "git bundle" did not use OFS_DELTA encoding, making its output a few per-cent larger than necessarily.

* The option to tell "git clone" to recurse into the submodules was misspelled with an underscore "--recurse_submodules".

* "git diff --cached HEAD" before the first commit does what an end user would expect (namely, show what would be committed without further "git add").

* "git fast-import" didn't accept the command to ask for "notes" feature to be present in its input stream, even though it was capable of the feature.

* "git fsck" gave up scanning loose object files in directories with garbage files.
