+GIT v1.5.1.4 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.5.1.3
+* Bugfixes
+  - "git-http-fetch" did not work around a bug in libcurl
+    earlier than 7.16 (curl_multi_remove_handle() was broken).
+  - "git cvsserver" handles a file that was once removed and
+    then added again correctly.
+  - import-tars script (in contrib/) handles GNU tar archives
+    that contain pathnames longer than 100 bytes (long-link
+    extension) correctly.
+  - xdelta test program did not build correctly.
+  - gitweb sometimes tried incorrectly to apply function to
+    decode utf8 twice, resulting in corrupt output.
+  - "git blame -C" mishandled text at the end of a group of
+    lines.
+  - "git log/rev-list --boundary" did not produce output
+    correctly without --left-right option.
+  - Many documentation updates.


 first create a new clone of the repository:
-$ git clone --bare proj.git
+$ git clone --bare ~/proj proj.git
-The resulting directory proj.git will contains a "bare" git
-repository--it is just the contents of the ".git" directory, without
-a checked-out copy of a working directory.

 Next, copy proj.git to the server where you plan to host the
 public repository.  You can use scp, rsync, or whatever is most
 then the following commands will all do the same thing:
-$ git fetch git:// master:ref/remotes/example/master
-$ git fetch example master:ref/remotes/example/master
-$ git fetch example example/master
+$ git fetch git:// master:refs/remotes/example/master
+$ git fetch example master:refs/remotes/example/master
 $ git fetch example
