+Git v1.7.10.2 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.7.10.1
+ * The test scaffolding for git-daemon was flaky.
+ * The test scaffolding for fast-import was flaky.
+ * The filesystem boundary was not correctly reported when .git directory
+ discovery stopped at a mount point.
+ * HTTP transport that requires authentication did not work correctly when
+ multiple connections are used simultaneously.
+ * In the older days, the header "Conflicts:" in "cherry-pick" and "merge"
+ was separated by a blank line from the list of paths that follow for
+ readability, but when "merge" was rewritten in C, we lost it by
+ mistake. Remove the newline from "cherry-pick" to make them match
+ again.
+ * The command line parser choked "git cherry-pick $name" when $name can
+ be both revision name and a pathname, even though $name can never be a
+ path in the context of the command.
+ * "git config --rename-section" to rename an existing section into a
+ bogus one did not check the new name.
+ * The "diff --no-index" codepath used limited-length buffers, risking
+ pathnames getting truncated. Update it to use the strbuf API.
+ * The report from "git fetch" said "new branch" even for a non branch
+ ref.
+ * Octopus merge strategy did not reduce heads that are recorded in the
+ final commit correctly.
+ * The i18n of error message "git stash save" was not properly done.
+ * When using a Perl script on a system where "perl" found on user's
+ $PATH could be ancient or otherwise broken, we allow builders to
+ specify the path to a good copy of Perl with $PERL_PATH. The
+ gitweb test forgot to use that Perl when running its test.
+Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.
