Dear diary, on Mon, Apr 18, 2005 at 06:42:26AM CEST, I got a letter
where Steven Cole <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> told me that...

read-tree $(tree-id) && update-cache --refresh

The directory cache format changed, so it causes this. I'm hoping to
release 0.5 with good cache prepackaged Real Soon Now (tm). :-)

Note that then you will have to recover from the failed apply. If you
had no local commits, it is easy - put that two IDs git pull told
you to git diff and pipe it to git apply. If you had local commits, and
have already GIT version with merge-base, do just git merge pasky and
proceed with the merge. If you don't have merge-base, pass the first
ID from git track to git merge with the -b argument.

Hey, those BUGS are the only slightly non-trivial thing on the whole
thing! I could do this patch myself... ;-) Also, you don't want to print
the first newline and the Copyright notices.
