Name        : git
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     :
Release     : 1.fc18
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:

Update to the latest maintenance release. Check /usr/share/doc/git/RelNotes for detailed list of changes.

This update also fixes following bug:

*  cvsimport should skip more characters (BZ#850640)
This is an upstream feature release. Refer to the release notes for details:


There is now a git-p4 package which provides tools for working with Perforce depots.

Also note that the '__git_ps1()' function, used for adding git information to the shell prompt, has been split into a separate file to allow it to work when using bash completion's on-demand loading.  This change should be transparent to users as git-prompt.sh is placed in /etc/profile.d and should thus be sourced for normal login shells.

  [ 1 ] Bug #850640 - cvsimport should skip more characters
  [ 2 ] Bug #844008 - git p4 support is disabled when NO_PYTHON is enabled

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update git' at the command line.
For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum",
available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.

All packages are signed with the Fedora Project GPG key.  More details on the
GPG keys used by the Fedora Project can be found at
