   10 Fixes since v1.7.10
   11 -------------------
   12 
   13  * "git add -p" is not designed to deal with unmerged paths but did
   14    not exclude them and tried to apply funny patches only to fail.
   15 
   16  * "git blame" started missing quite a few changes from the origin
   17    since we stopped using the diff minimization by default in v1.7.2
   18    era.
   19 
   20  * When PATH contains an unreadable directory, alias expansion code
   21    did not kick in, and failed with an error that said "git-subcmd"
   22    was not found.
   23 
   24  * "git clean -d -f" (not "-d -f -f") is supposed to protect nested
   25    working trees of independent git repositories that exist in the
   26    current project working tree from getting removed, but the
   27    protection applied only to such working trees that are at the
   28    top-level of the current project by mistake.
   29 
   30  * "git commit --author=$name" did not tell the name that was being
   31    recorded in the resulting commit to hooks, even though it does do
   32    so when the end user overrode the authorship via the
   33    "GIT_AUTHOR_NAME" environment variable.
   34 
   35  * When "git commit --template F" errors out because the user did not
   36    touch the message, it claimed that it aborts due to "empty
   37    message", which was utterly wrong.
   38 
   39  * The regexp configured with diff.wordregex was incorrectly reused
   40    across files.
   41 
   42  * An age-old corner case bug in combine diff (only triggered with -U0
   43    and the hunk at the beginning of the file needs to be shown) has
   44    been fixed.
   45 
   46  * Rename detection logic used to match two empty files as renames
   47    during merge-recursive, leading to unnatural mismerges.
   48 
   49  * The parser in "fast-import" did not diagnose ":9" style references
   50    that is not followed by required SP/LF as an error.
   51 
   52  * When "git fetch" encounters repositories with too many references,
   53    the command line of "fetch-pack" that is run by a helper
   54    e.g. remote-curl, may fail to hold all of them. Now such an
   55    internal invocation can feed the references through the standard
   56    input of "fetch-pack".
   57 
   58  * "git fetch" that recurses into submodules on demand did not check
   59    if it needs to go into submodules when non branches (most notably,
   60    tags) are fetched.
   61 
   62  * "log -p --graph" used with "--stat" had a few formatting error.
   63 
   64  * Running "notes merge --commit" failed to perform correctly when run
   65    from any directory inside $GIT_DIR/.  When "notes merge" stops with
   66    conflicts, $GIT_DIR/NOTES_MERGE_WORKTREE is the place a user edits
   67    to resolve it.
   68 
   69  * The 'push to upstream' implementation was broken in some corner
   70    cases. "git push $there" without refspec, when the current branch
   71    is set to push to a remote different from $there, used to push to
   72    $there using the upstream information to a remote unrelated to
   73    $there.
   74 
   75  * Giving "--continue" to a conflicted "rebase -i" session skipped a
   76    commit that only results in changes to submodules.
   77 
   78 Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
