 scripts to use "git xyzzy" form, as we will stop installing
 "git-xyzzy" hardlinks for built-in commands in later releases.
+An earlier change to page "git status" output was overwhelmingly unpopular
+and has been reverted.
 Source changes needed for porting to MinGW environment are now all in the
 main git.git codebase.
 * "git rerere" can be told to update the index with auto-reused resolution
   with rerere.autoupdate configuration variable.
+* git-rev-parse learned $commit^! and $commit^@ notations used in "log"
+  family.  These notations are available in gitk as well, because the gitk
+  command internally uses rev-parse to interpret its arguments.
 * git-rev-list learned --children option to show child commits it
   encountered during the traversal, instead of shoing parent commits.
 * git-status gives the remote tracking statistics similar to the way
   git-checkout reports by how many commits your branch is ahead/behind.
+* "git-svn dcommit" is now aware of auto-props setting the subversion user
+  has.
 * You can tell "git status -u" to even more aggressively omit checking
   untracked files with --untracked-files=no.
 All of the fixes in v1.5.6 maintenance series are included in
 this release, unless otherwise noted.
+* git-clone ignored its -u option; the fix needs to be backported to
+  'maint';
+* git-mv used to lose the distinction between changes that are staged
+  and that are only in the working tree, by staging both in the index
+  after moving such a path.
