Git v2.0.2 Release Notes
* Documentation for "git submodule sync" forgot to say that the subcommand
can take the "--recursive" option.
* Mishandling of patterns in .gitignore that has trailing SPs quoted
with backslashes (e.g. ones that end with "\ ") have been
* Recent updates to "git repack" started to duplicate objects that
are in packfiles marked with .keep flag into the new packfile by
* "git clone -b brefs/tags/bar" would have mistakenly thought we were
following a single tag, even though it was a name of the branch,
because it incorrectly used strstr().
* "%G" (nothing after G) is an invalid pretty format specifier, but
the parser did not notice it as garbage.
* Code to avoid adding the same alternate object store twice was
subtly broken for a long time, but nobody seems to have noticed.
* A handful of code paths had to read the commit object more than
once when showing header fields that are usually not parsed. The
internal data structure to keep track of the contents of the commit
object has been updated to reduce the need for this double-reading,
and to allow the caller find the length of the object.
* During "git rebase --merge", a conflicted patch could not be
skipped with "--skip" if the next one also conflicted.
