* When the interactive access to git-shell is not enabled, it issues
a message meant to help the system admininstrator to enable it.
An explicit way to help the end users who connect to the service by
issuing custom messages to refuse such an access has been added.
* "git status" suggests users to look into using--untracked=no option
when it takes too long.
* "git fetch" learned to fetch a commit at the tip of an unadvertised
ref by specifying a raw object name from the command line when the
server side supports this feature.
* "git count-objects -v" learned to report leftover temporary
packfiles and other garbage in the object store.
* A new read-only credential helper (in contrib/) to interact with
the .netrc/.authinfo files has been added.
* "git send-email" can be used with the credential helper system.
