FEDORA-2015-2762 created by limb 7 years ago for Fedora 22

Git v2.3.1 Release Notes

Fixes since v2.3

  • The interactive "show a list and let the user choose from it" interface "add -i" used showed and prompted to the user even when the candidate list was empty, against which the only "choice" the user could have made was to choose nothing.

  • "git apply --whitespace=fix" used to under-allocate the memory when the fix resulted in a longer text than the original patch.

  • "git log --help" used to show rev-list options that are irrelevant to the "log" command.

  • The error message from "git commit", when a non-existing author name was given as value to the "--author=" parameter, has been reworded to avoid misunderstanding.

  • A broken pack .idx file in the receiving repository prevented the dumb http transport from fetching a good copy of it from the other side.

  • The documentation incorrectly said that C(opy) and R(ename) are the only ones that can be followed by the score number in the output in the --raw format.

  • Fix a misspelled conditional that is always true.

  • Code to read branch name from various files in .git/ directory would have misbehaved if the code to write them left an empty file.

  • The "git push" documentation made the "--repo=<there>" option easily misunderstood.

  • After attempting and failing a password-less authentication (e.g. kerberos), libcURL refuses to fall back to password based Basic authentication without a bit of help/encouragement.

  • Setting diff.submodule to 'log' made "git format-patch" produce broken patches.

  • "git rerere" (invoked internally from many mergy operations) did not correctly signal errors when told to update the working tree files and failed to do so for whatever reason.

  • "git blame HEAD -- missing" failed to correctly say "HEAD" when it tried to say "No such path 'missing' in HEAD".

Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.
