GIT v1.5.0.1 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.5.0

* Documentation updates

- Clarifications and corrections to 1.5.0 release notes.

- The main documentation did not link to git-remote documentation.

- Clarified introductory text of git-rebase documentation.

- Converted remaining mentions of update-index on Porcelain
documents to git-add/git-rm.

- Some i18n.* configuration variables were incorrectly
described as core.*; fixed.

* Bugfixes

- git-add and git-update-index on a filesystem on which
executable bits are unreliable incorrectly reused st_mode
bits even when the path changed between symlink and regular

- git-daemon marks the listening sockets with FD_CLOEXEC so
that it won't be leaked into the children.

- segfault from git-blame when the mandatory pathname
parameter was missing was fixed; usage() message is given

- git-rev-list did not read $GIT_DIR/config file, which means
that did not honor i18n.logoutputencoding correctly.

* Tweaks

- sliding mmap() inefficiently mmaped the same region of a
packfile with an access pattern that used objects in the
reverse order. This has been made more efficient.
