      perl: bump the required Perl version to 5.8 from 5.6.[21] · d48b2841
      Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason authored
      Formalize our dependency on perl 5.8, bumped from 5.6.[12]. We already
      used the three-arg form of open() which was introduced in 5.6.1, but
      t/t9700/ explicitly depended on 5.6.2.
      However has been failing on the 5.6 line since
      it was introduced in v1.5.0-rc0~12^2~2 back in 2006 due to this open
          sub run_cmd_pipe {
                 my $fh = undef;
                 open($fh, '-|', @_) or die;
                 return <$fh>;
      Which when executed dies on "Can't use an undefined value as
      filehandle reference". Several of our tests also fail on 5.6 (even
      more when compiled with NO_PERL_MAKEMAKER=1):

      Our code is bitrotting on 5.6 with no-one interested in fixing it, and
      pinning us to such an ancient release of Perl is keeping us from using
      useful features introduced in the 5.8 release.
      The 5.6 series is now over 10 years old, and the 5.6.2 maintenance
      release almost 7. 5.8 on the other hand is more than 8 years old.
      All the modern Unix-like operating systems have now upgraded to it or
      a later version, and 5.8 packages are available for old IRIX, AIX
      Solaris and Tru64 systems.

      Make usage strings dash-less · 1b1dd23f
      Stephan Beyer authored
      When you misuse a git command, you are shown the usage string.
      But this is currently shown in the dashed form.  So if you just
      copy what you see, it will not work, when the dashed form
      is no longer supported.
      This patch makes git commands show the dash-less version.
      For shell scripts that do not specify OPTIONS_SPEC,
      generates a dash-less usage string now.

      Big tool rename. · 215a7ad1
      Junio C Hamano authored
      As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch.  The primary differences
      since 0.99.6 are:
        (1) git-*-script are no more.  The commands installed do not
            have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if
            something is implemented as a shell script or not.
        (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with
            'index' if that is what they mean.
      There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and
      Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward
      compatibility support  is expected to be removed in the near
