Fixes since v2.16
* An old regression in "git describe --all $annotated_tag^0" has been
(merge 1bba00130a dk/describe-all-output-fix later to maint).
* "git status" after moving a path in the working tree (hence making
it appear "removed") and then adding with the -N option (hence
making that appear "added") detected it as a rename, but did not
report the old and new pathnames correctly.
(merge 176ea74793 nd/ita-wt-renames-in-status later to maint).
* "git svn dcommit" did not take into account the fact that a
svn+ssh:// URL with a username@ (typically used for pushing) refers
to the same SVN repository without the username@ and failed when
svn.pushmergeinfo option is set.
(merge 8aaed892fd jm/svn-pushmergeinfo-fix later to maint).
* API clean-up around revision traversal.
(merge 6fcec2f9ae rs/lose-leak-pending later to maint).
* "git merge -Xours/-Xtheirs" learned to use our/their version when
resolving a conflicting updates to a symbolic link.
(merge fd48b46474 jc/merge-symlink-ours-theirs later to maint).
* "git clone $there $here" is allowed even when here directory exists
as long as it is an empty directory, but the command incorrectly
removed it upon a failure of the operation.
(merge d45420c1c8 jk/abort-clone-with-existing-dest later to maint).
* "git commit --fixup" did not allow "-m<message>" option to be used
at the same time; allow it to annotate resulting commit with more
(merge 30884c9afc ab/commit-m-with-fixup later to maint).
* When resetting the working tree files recursively, the working tree
of submodules are now also reset to match.
(merge 7dcc1f4df8 sb/submodule-update-reset-fix later to maint).
* "git stash -- <pathspec>" incorrectly blew away untracked files in
the directory that matched the pathspec, which has been corrected.
(merge bba067d2fa tg/stash-with-pathspec-fix later to maint).
* Instead of maintaining home-grown email address parsing code, ship
a copy of reasonably recent Mail::Address to be used as a fallback
in 'git send-email' when the platform lacks it.
(merge d60be8acab mm/send-email-fallback-to-local-mail-address later to maint).
* "git add -p" was taught to ignore local changes to submodules as
they do not interfere with the partial addition of regular changes
(merge 12434efc1d nd/add-i-ignore-submodules later to maint).
* Other minor doc, test and build updates and code cleanups.
