+GIT v1.5.6.2 Release Notes
+ * "git-shell" accepts requests without a dash between "git" and
+   subcommand name (e.g. "git upload-pack") which the newer client will
+   start to make sometime in the future.
+Fixes since v1.5.6.1
+* Optimization for a large import via "git-svn" introduced in v1.5.6 had a
+  serious memory and temporary file leak, which made it unusable for
+  moderately large import.
+* "git-svn" mangled remote nickname used in the configuration file
+  unnecessarily.
+* "git diff --check" did not report the result via its exit status
+  reliably.
+* "git show" segfaulted when an annotated tag that points at another
+  annotated tag was given to it.
