the command.
-* 'git fast-export' did not export all tags.
+* Giving 3 or more tree-ish to "git diff" is supposed to show the combined
+ diff from second and subsequent trees to the first one, but the order was
+ screwed up.

+* "git fast-export" did not export all tags.

+* "git ls-files --with-tree=<tree>" did not work with options other
than -c, most notably with -m.
-* 'git pack-objects' did not make its best effort to honor --max-pack-size
+* "git pack-objects" did not make its best effort to honor --max-pack-size

-* Many unsafe call to sprintf() style varargs functions are corrected.
+* The message constructed in the internal editor was discarded when "git

+ not configuring GPG correctly.
-* Also contains quite a few documentation updates.
