Here are the topics that have been cooking.  Commits prefixed with
'-' are only in 'pu' (proposed updates) while commits prefixed with
'+' are in 'next'.  The ones marked with '.' do not appear in any of
the integration branches, but I am still holding onto them.

You can find the changes described here in the integration branches
of the repositories listed at

* am/checkout-file-and-ref-ref-ambiguity (2020-01-07) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-01-27 at daf1dadc78)
 + checkout: don't revert file on ambiguous tracking branches
 + parse_branchname_arg(): extract part as new function

 "git checkout X" did not correctly fail when X is not a local
 branch but could name more than one remote-tracking branches
 (i.e. to be dwimmed as the starting point to create a corresponding
 local branch), which has been corrected.

  (merged to 'next' on 2020-01-27 at 7b41163881)
 + fetch: emphasize failure during submodule fetch

 A fetch that is told to recursively fetch updates in submodules
 inevitably produces reams of output, and it becomes hard to spot
 error messages.  The command has been taught to enumerate
 submodules that had errors at the end of the operation.

 The mechanism to prevent "git commit" from making an empty commit

 "git config" can be told to affect the existing entries that
 "match" the given value via its value_regex argument.  It learned
 to normalize the value set in the configuration and the value given
 from the command line before computing they "match", e.g. "true" in
 the configuration file can now match with "yes" given from the
 command line.

 + t7400: testcase for submodule status on unregistered inner git repos
 + submodule: fix status of initialized but not cloned submodules
 + t7400: add a testcase for submodule status on empty dirs

 One effect of specifying where the GIT_DIR is (either with the

 + index-pack: downgrade twice-resolved REF_DELTA to die()

 The index-pack code now diagnoses a bad input packstream that
 records the same object twice when it is used as delta base; the
 code used to declare a software bug when encountering such an
 input, but it is an input error.

 + grep: ignore --recurse-submodules if --no-index is given

 "git grep --no-index" should not get affected by the contents of
 the .gitmodules file but when "--recurse-submodules" is given or
 the "submodule.recurse" variable is set, it did.  Now these
 settings are ignored in the "--no-index" mode.

 - builtin/commit-graph.c: introduce '--input=<source>'
 - builtin/commit-graph.c: support '--split[=<strategy>]'
 (this branch uses tb/commit-graph-object-dir.)

 The code to write out the commit-graph has been taught a few
 options to control if the resulting graph chains should be merged
 or a single new incremental graph is created.

 Waiting for the discussion to settle.

 (this branch is used by ag/edit-todo-drop-check.)

 "git rebase -i" identifies existing commits in its todo file with
 their abbreviated object name, which could become ambigous as it
 goes to create new commits, and has a mechanism to avoid ambiguity
 in the main part of its execution.  A few other cases however were
 not covered by the protection against ambiguity, which has been

 + grep: fix race conditions on userdiff calls

 Traditionally, we avoided threaded grep while searching in objects
 (as opposed to files in the working tree) as accesses to the object
 layer is not thread-safe.  This limitation is getting lifted.
