git (1:1.8.4~rc0-1) experimental; urgency=low

  Starting with this version, gitweb and "git daemon" on Debian are
  configured to look for repositories under /var/lib/git by default
  instead of /var/cache/git.  You may want to adjust your inetd,
  rsyncd, and web server configuration to use the new base path.

  See /usr/share/doc/git/README.Debian for details.

  Symlinks are installed during the upgrade to ensure existing
  repositories remain accessible.  If no local scripts or
  configuration depend on /var/cache/git then it is safe to remove
  the old directory after replacing these symlinks with their

    mv --backup /var/cache/git/* /var/lib/git/
    rmdir /var/cache/git
    rm /var/lib/git/*~

git (1:1.8.2~rc0-1) experimental; urgency=low

  The default behavior of "git push" when run without specifying any
  ref names will change in the upcoming Git 2.0 release.

  The previous default behavior was to use "matching" semantics: push
  all branches for which there is already a branch of the same name on
  the remote end.  The new default is "simple" semantics: push the
  current branch to a branch of the same name, provided that "git
  pull" is configured to integrate with that branch.  You can get a
  glimpse of the future with

        echo '[push] default = simple' >>~/.gitconfig

  See Documentation/RelNotes/1.8.2.txt and the entry on push.default
  in git-config(1) for details.

git (1:1.8.0-1) experimental; urgency=low

  Git's bash completion script is now loaded on the fly when tab
  completion is attempted for the 'git' or 'gitk' command.  This
  change involved moving the completion script.  If your ~/.bashrc
  previously contained

    . /etc/bash_completion.d/git

  then it should be corrected to

    if [ -e /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/git ]; then
      . /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/git
    elif [ -e /etc/bash_completion.d/git ]; then
      . /etc/bash_completion.d/git

  or, better,

    . /etc/bash_completion

  See /usr/share/doc/bash-completion/README.Debian for details.
