A release candidate Git v2.37.0-rc2 is now available for testing at
the usual places.  It is comprised of 378 non-merge commits since
v2.36.0, contributed by 64 people, 19 of which are new faces [*].

Due to summer vacation season in the northern hemisphere, this cycle
is shorter than usual.  We expect to tag the final 2.37 release
early next week.  Hopefully we fixed all the known regressions in
2.36 without adding too many new ones.

The tarballs are found at:

The following public repositories all have a copy of the
'v2.37.0-rc2' tag and the 'master' branch that the tag points at:

Git v2.37 Release Notes (draft)

UI, Workflows & Features

 * "vimdiff[123]" mergetool drivers have been reimplemented with a
   more generic layout mechanism.

 * "git -v" and "git -h" are now understood as "git --version" and
   "git --help".

 * The temporary files fed to external diff command are now generated
   inside a new temporary directory under the same basename.

 * "git log --since=X" will stop traversal upon seeing a commit that
   is older than X, but there may be commits behind it that is younger
   than X when the commit was created with a faulty clock.  A new
   option is added to keep digging without stopping, and instead
   filter out commits with timestamp older than X.

 * "git -c branch.autosetupmerge=simple branch $A $B" will set the $B
   as $A's upstream only when $A and $B shares the same name, and "git
   -c push.default=simple" on branch $A would push to update the
   branch $A at the remote $B came from.  Also more places use the
   sole remote, if exists, before defaulting to 'origin'.

 * A new doc has been added that lists tips for tools to work with
   Git's codebase.

 * "git remote -v" now shows the list-objects-filter used during
   fetching from the remote, if available.

 * With the new http.curloptResolve configuration, the CURLOPT_RESOLVE
   mechanism that allows cURL based applications to use pre-resolved
   IP addresses for the requests is exposed to the scripts.

 * "git add -i" was rewritten in C some time ago and has been in
   testing; the reimplementation is now exposed to general public by

 * Deprecate non-cone mode of the sparse-checkout feature.

 * Introduce a filesystem-dependent mechanism to optimize the way the
   bits for many loose object files are ensured to hit the disk

 * The "do not remove the directory the user started Git in" logic,
   when Git cannot tell where that directory is, is disabled.  Earlier
   we refused to run in such a case.

 * A mechanism to pack unreachable objects into a "cruft pack",
   instead of ejecting them into loose form to be reclaimed later, has
   been introduced.

 * Update the doctype written in gitweb output to xhtml5.

 * The "transfer.credentialsInURL" configuration variable controls what
   happens when a URL with embedded login credential is used on either
   "fetch" or "push". Credentials are currently only detected in
   `remote.<name>.url` config, not `remote.<name>.pushurl`.

 * "git revert" learns "--reference" option to use more human-readable
   reference to the commit it reverts in the message template it
   prepares for the user.

 * Various error messages that talk about the removal of
   "--preserve-merges" in "rebase" have been strengthened, and "rebase
   --abort" learned to get out of a state that was left by an earlier
   use of the option.

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

 * The performance of the "untracked cache" feature has been improved
   when "--untracked-files=<mode>" and "status.showUntrackedFiles"
   are combined.

 * "git stash" works better with sparse index entries.

 * "git show :<path>" learned to work better with the sparse-index

 * Introduce and apply coccinelle rule to discourage an explicit
   comparison between a pointer and NULL, and applies the clean-up to
   the maintenance track.

 * Preliminary code refactoring around transport and bundle code.

 * "sparse-checkout" learns to work better with the sparse-index

 * A workflow change for translators are being proposed.  git.pot is
   no longer version controlled and it is local responsibility of
   translators to generate it.

 * Plug the memory leaks from the trickiest API of all, the revision

 * Rename .env_array member to .env in the child_process structure.

  * The fsmonitor--daemon handles even more corner cases when
    watching filesystem events.

 * A new bug() and BUG_if_bug() API is introduced to make it easier to
   uniformly log "detect multiple bugs and abort in the end" pattern.

Fixes since v2.36

 * "git submodule update" without pathspec should silently skip an
   uninitialized submodule, but it started to become noisy by mistake.
   (merge 4f1ccef87c gc/submodule-update-part2 later to maint).

 * "diff-tree --stdin" has been broken for about a year, but 2.36
   release broke it even worse by breaking running the command with
   <pathspec>, which in turn broke "gitk" and got noticed.  This has
   been corrected by aligning its behaviour to that of "log".
   (merge f8781bfda3 jc/diff-tree-stdin-fix later to maint).

 * Regression fix for 2.36 where "git name-rev" started to sometimes
   reference strings after they are freed.
   (merge 45a14f578e rs/name-rev-fix-free-after-use later to maint).

 * "git show <commit1> <commit2>... -- <pathspec>" lost the pathspec
   when showing the second and subsequent commits, which has been
   (merge 5cdb38458e jc/show-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * "git fast-export -- <pathspec>" lost the pathspec when showing the
   second and subsequent commits, which has been corrected.
   (merge d1c25272f5 rs/fast-export-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * "git format-patch <args> -- <pathspec>" lost the pathspec when
   showing the second and subsequent commits, which has been
   (merge 91f8f7e46f rs/format-patch-pathspec-fix later to maint).

 * "git clone --origin X" leaked piece of memory that held value read
   from the clone.defaultRemoteName configuration variable, which has
   been plugged.
   (merge 6dfadc8981 jc/clone-remote-name-leak-fix later to maint).

 * Get rid of a bogus and over-eager coccinelle rule.
   (merge 08bdd3a185 jc/cocci-xstrdup-or-null-fix later to maint).

 * The path taken by "git multi-pack-index" command from the end user
   was compared with path internally prepared by the tool without first
   normalizing, which lead to duplicated paths not being noticed,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge 11f9e8de3d ds/midx-normalize-pathname-before-comparison later to maint).

 * Correct choices of C compilers used in various CI jobs.
   (merge 3506cae04f ab/cc-package-fixes later to maint).

 * Various cleanups to "git p4".
   (merge 4ff0108d9e jh/p4-various-fixups later to maint).

 * The progress meter of "git blame" was showing incorrect numbers
   when processing only parts of the file.
   (merge e5f5d7d42e ea/progress-partial-blame later to maint).

 * "git rebase --keep-base <upstream> <branch-to-rebase>" computed the
   commit to rebase onto incorrectly, which has been corrected.
   (merge 9e5ebe9668 ah/rebase-keep-base-fix later to maint).

 * Fix a leak of FILE * in an error codepath.
   (merge c0befa0c03 kt/commit-graph-plug-fp-leak-on-error later to maint).

 * Avoid problems from interaction between malloc_check and address
   (merge 067109a5e7 pw/test-malloc-with-sanitize-address later to maint).

 * The commit summary shown after making a commit is matched to what
   is given in "git status" not to use the break-rewrite heuristics.
   (merge 84792322ed rs/commit-summary-wo-break-rewrite later to maint).

 * Update a few end-user facing messages around EOL conversion.
   (merge c970d30c2c ah/convert-warning-message later to maint).

 * Trace2 documentation updates.
   (merge a6c80c313c js/trace2-doc-fixes later to maint).

 * Build procedure fixup.
   (merge 1fbfd96f50 mg/detect-compiler-in-c-locale later to maint).

 * "git pull" without "--recurse-submodules=<arg>" made
   submodule.recurse take precedence over fetch.recurseSubmodules by
   mistake, which has been corrected.
   (merge 5819417365 gc/pull-recurse-submodules later to maint).

 * "git bisect" was too silent before it is ready to start computing
   the actual bisection, which has been corrected.
   (merge f11046e6de cd/bisect-messages-from-pre-flight-states later to maint).

 * macOS CI jobs have been occasionally flaky due to tentative version
   skew between perforce and the homebrew packager.  Instead of
   failing the whole CI job, just let it skip the p4 tests when this
   (merge f15e00b463 cb/ci-make-p4-optional later to maint).

 * A bit of test framework fixes with a few fixes to issues found by
   (merge 7c898554d7 ab/valgrind-fixes later to maint).

 * "git archive --add-file=<path>" picked up the raw permission bits
   from the path and propagated to zip output in some cases, without
   normalization, which has been corrected (tar output did not have
   this issue).
   (merge 6a61661967 jc/archive-add-file-normalize-mode later to maint).

 * "make coverage-report" without first running "make coverage" did
   not produce any meaningful result, which has been corrected.
   (merge 96ddfecc5b ep/coverage-report-wants-test-to-have-run later to maint).

 * The "--current" option of "git show-branch" should have been made
   incompatible with the "--reflog" mode, but this was not enforced,
   which has been corrected.
   (merge 41c64ae0e7 jc/show-branch-g-current later to maint).

 * "git fetch" unnecessarily failed when an unexpected optional
   section appeared in the output, which has been corrected.
   (merge 7709acf7be jt/fetch-peek-optional-section later to maint).

 * The way "git fetch" without "--update-head-ok" ensures that HEAD in
   no worktree points at any ref being updated was too wasteful, which
   has been optimized a bit.
   (merge f7400da800 os/fetch-check-not-current-branch later to maint).

 * "git fetch --recurse-submodules" from multiple remotes (either from
   a remote group, or "--all") used to make one extra "git fetch" in
   the submodules, which has been corrected.
   (merge 0353c68818 jc/avoid-redundant-submodule-fetch later to maint).

 * With a recent update to refuse access to repositories of other
   people by default, "sudo make install" and "sudo git describe"
   stopped working, which has been corrected.
   (merge 6b11e3d52e cb/path-owner-check-with-sudo-plus later to maint).

 * The tests that ensured merges stop when interfering local changes
   are present did not make sure that local changes are preserved; now
   they do.
   (merge 4b317450ce jc/t6424-failing-merge-preserve-local-changes later to maint).

 * Some real problems noticed by gcc 12 have been fixed, while false
   positives have been worked around.

 * Update the version of FreeBSD image used in Cirrus CI.
   (merge c58bebd4c6 pb/use-freebsd-12.3-in-cirrus-ci later to maint).

 * The multi-pack-index code did not protect the packfile it is going
   to depend on from getting removed while in use, which has been
   (merge 4090511e40 tb/midx-race-in-pack-objects later to maint).

 * Teach "git repack --geometric" work better with "--keep-pack" and
   avoid corrupting the repository when packsize limit is used.
   (merge 66731ff921 tb/geom-repack-with-keep-and-max later to maint).

 * The documentation on the interaction between "--add-file" and
   "--prefix" options of "git archive" has been improved.
   (merge a75910602a rs/document-archive-prefix later to maint).

 * A git subcommand like "git add -p" spawns a separate git process
   while relaying its command line arguments.  A pathspec with only
   negative elements was mistakenly passed with an empty string, which
   has been corrected.
   (merge b02fdbc80a jc/all-negative-pathspec later to maint).

 * With a more targeted workaround in http.c in another topic, we may
   be able to lift this blanket "GCC12 dangling-pointer warning is
   broken and unsalvageable" workaround.
   (merge 419141e495 cb/buggy-gcc-12-workaround later to maint).

 * A misconfigured 'branch..remote' led to a bug in configuration
   (merge f1dfbd9ee0 gc/zero-length-branch-config-fix later to maint).

 * "git -c diff.submodule=log range-diff" did not show anything for
   submodules that changed in the ranges being compared, and
   "git -c diff.submodule=diff range-diff" did not work correctly.
   Fix this by including the "--submodule=short" output
   unconditionally to be compared.

 * In Git 2.36 we revamped the way how hooks are invoked.  One change
   that is end-user visible is that the output of a hook is no longer
   directly connected to the standard output of "git" that spawns the
   hook, which was noticed post release.  This is getting corrected.
   (merge a082345372 ab/hooks-regression-fix later to maint).

 * Updating the graft information invalidates the list of parents of
   in-core commit objects that used to be in the graft file.

 * "git show-ref --heads" (and "--tags") still iterated over all the
   refs only to discard refs outside the specified area, which has
   been corrected.
   (merge c0c9d35e27 tb/show-ref-optim later to maint).

 * Remove redundant copying (with index v3 and older) or possible
   over-reading beyond end of mmapped memory (with index v4) has been
   (merge 6d858341d2 zh/read-cache-copy-name-entry-fix later to maint).

 * Sample watchman interface hook sometimes failed to produce
   correctly formatted JSON message, which has been corrected.
   (merge 134047b500 sn/fsmonitor-missing-clock later to maint).

 * Use-after-free (with another forget-to-free) fix.
   (merge 323822c72b ab/remote-free-fix later to maint).

 * Remove a coccinelle rule that is no longer relevant.
   (merge b1299de4a1 jc/cocci-cleanup later to maint).

 * Other code cleanup, docfix, build fix, etc.
