* "git p4 submit" learns to ask its own pre-submit hook if it should
continue with submitting.
* The test performed at the receiving end of "git push" to prevent
bad objects from entering repository can be customized via
receive.fsck.* configuration variables; we now have gained a
counterpart to do the same on the "git fetch" side, with
fetch.fsck.* configuration variables.

* The parse-options machinery learned to refrain from enclosing
placeholder string inside a "<bra" and "ket>" pair automatically
without PARSE_OPT_LITERAL_ARGHELP. Existing help text for option
arguments that are not formatted correctly have been identified and

* Noiseword "extern" has been removed from function decls in the
header files.
* A few atoms like %(objecttype) and %(objectsize) in the format
specifier of "for-each-ref --format=<format>" can be filled without
getting the full contents of the object, but just with the object
header. These cases have been optimized by calling
oid_object_info() API (instead of reading and inspecting the data).
* The end result of documentation update has been made to be
inspected more easily to help developers.

* The "author-script" file "git rebase -i" creates got broken when
we started to move the command away from shell script, which is
getting fixed now.

* The automatic tree-matching in "git merge -s subtree" was broken 5
years ago and nobody has noticed since then, which is now fixed.

* "git fetch $there refs/heads/s" ought to fetch the tip of the
branch 's', but when "refs/heads/refs/heads/s", i.e. a branch whose
name is "refs/heads/s" exists at the same time, fetched that one
instead by mistake. This has been corrected to honor the usual
disambiguation rules for abbreviated refnames.

* The http-backend (used for smart-http transport) used to slurp the
whole input until EOF, without paying attention to CONTENT_LENGTH
that is supplied in the environment and instead expecting the Web
server to close the input stream. This has been fixed.

there were conflicted entries in the index in certain order that
