+Git Release Notes
+ * The xfuncname pattern used by "git diff" and "git grep" to show the
+   last notable line in context were broken for python and ruby for a long
+   time.
+ * "git merge" into an unborn branch removed an untracked file "foo" from
+   the working tree when merged branch had "foo" (this fix was already in
+ but was omitted from the release notes by mistake).
+ * "git status -s" did not quote unprintable characters in paths as
+   documented.
+ * "git am --abort" used to always reset to the commit at the beginning of
+   the last "am" invocation that has stopped, losing any unrelated commits
+   that may have been made since then.  Now it refrains from doing so and
+   instead issues a warning.
+ * "git blame" incorrectly reused bogusly cached result of textconv
+   filter for files from the working tree.
+ * "git commit" used to abort after the user edited the log message
+   when the committer information was not correctly set up.  It now
+   aborts before starting the editor.
+ * "git commit --date=invalid" used to silently ignore the incorrectly
+   specified date; it is now diagnosed as an error.
+ * "git rebase --skip" to skip the last commit in a series used to fail
+   to run post-rewrite hook and to copy notes from old commits that have
+   successfully been rebased so far.  Now it do (backmerge ef88ad2).
