 {{{
 Git v1.8.5.3 Release Notes
 ==========================

 Fixes since v1.8.5.2
 --------------------

  * The "--[no-]informative-errors" options to "git daemon" were parsed
    a bit too loosely, allowing any other string after these option
    names.

  * A "gc" process running as a different user should be able to stop a
    new "gc" process from starting.

  * An earlier "clean-up" introduced an unnecessary memory leak to the
    credential subsystem.

  * "git mv A B/", when B does not exist as a directory, should error
    out, but it didn't.

  * "git rev-parse <revs> -- <paths>" did not implement the usual
    disambiguation rules the commands in the "git log" family used in
    the same way.

  * "git cat-file --batch=", an admittedly useless command, did not
    behave very well.

 Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.
