+Git v1.7.11.3 Release Notes
+Fixes since v1.7.11.3
+ * The error message from "git push $there :bogo" (and its equivalent
+ "git push $there --delete bogo") mentioned that we tried and failed
+ to guess what ref is being deleted based on the LHS of the refspec,
+ which we don't.
+ * A handful of files and directories we create had tighter than
+ necessary permission bits when the user wanted to have group
+ writability (e.g. by setting "umask 002").
+ * "commit --amend" used to refuse amending a commit with an empty log
+ message, with or without "--allow-empty-message".
+ * "git commit --amend --only --" was meant to allow "Clever" people to
+ rewrite the commit message without making any change even when they
+ have already changes for the next commit added to their index, but
+ it never worked as advertised since it was introduced in 1.3.0 era.
+ * Even though the index can record pathnames longer than 1<<12 bytes,
+ in some places we were not comparing them in full, potentially
+ replacing index entries instead of adding.
+ * "git show"'s auto-walking behaviour was an unreliable and
+ unpredictable hack; it now behaves just like "git log" does when it
+ walks.
+ * "git diff", "git status" and anything that internally uses the
+ comparison machinery was utterly broken when the difference
+ involved a file with "-" as its name. This was due to the way "git
+ diff --no-index" was incorrectly bolted on to the system, making
+ any comparison that involves a file "-" at the root level
+ incorrectly read from the standard input.
+ * We did not have test to make sure "git rebase" without extra options
+ filters out an empty commit in the original history.
+ * "git fast-export" produced an input stream for fast-import without
+ properly quoting pathnames when they contain SPs in them.
+ * "git checkout --detach", when you are still on an unborn branch,
+ should be forbidden, but it wasn't.
+ * Some implementations of Perl terminates "lines" with CRLF even when
+ the script is operating on just a sequence of bytes. Make sure to
+ use "$PERL_PATH", the version of Perl the user told Git to use, in
+ our tests to avoid unnecessary breakages in tests.
+Also contains minor typofixes and documentation updates.
