Things are looking almost ready for a new release.  The list at
the end of this message shows what went into the release
candidate branch since 0.99.3: Dan's commit walker updates to
deal with a packed repository, Johannes fixed quite a lot of
problems in the documentation, I did reference-renaming push, a
couple of usability improvements from Linus, gitk updates from
Paul, and Ryan added an bulk e-mailer.  With help from Kalle,
Horst and Chris Wright, binary packaging looks in a better shape
now.  I'll let this simmer for a couple more days, and plan to
merge them back to the master branch on Wednesday and tag it as
v0.99.4.  Some of the patches I will receive before Wednesday
from the list, and some of what I already have in the proposed
update branch, may graduate to the master branch before that

Earlier, I posted my itchlist.  I would of course appreciate if
somebody scratches them, but at the same time would appreciate
people to voice their own itches.  My personal 0.99.5 itches are
to enhance fetch to deal with multiple references and have
local-pull to deal with a packed repository.  Dan's help would be
greatly appreciated on the latter one.

Oh, another itch I did not list in the previous message.  Is
anybody interested in doing an Emacs VC back-end for GIT?

BTW, I used "git log v0.99.3..rc | git shortlog" to prepare the
attached list, but ended up hand-removing many "Merge with blah"
entries.  It may not be a bad idea to have an option to filter
out the merge entries at "git log" time.  Adding
'--single-parent-only' flag to git-rev-list would be one way of
doing it.  Suggestions?
