    The existing "git fetch --depth=<n>" option was hard to use
    correctly when making the history of an existing shallow clone
    deeper.  A new option, "--deepen=<n>", has been added to make this
    easier to use.  "git clone" also learned "--shallow-since=<date>"
    and "--shallow-exclude=<tag>" options to make it easier to specify
    "I am interested only in the recent N months worth of history" and
    "Give me only the history since that version".
