Unless I hear otherwise in the next 24 hours, I am planning to
merge the following topics to 'master' before cutting -rc2. Please
stop me on any of these topics.
This may be the most controversial. It demotes the C
reimplementation of "git rebase" to an experimental opt-in
feature that can only be enabled by setting rebase.useBuiltIn
configuration that defaults to false.
The "--rangediff" option recently added to "format-patch"
interspersed a bogus and useless "--stat" information by mistake,
which is being corrected.
The following three topics I do not need help in deciding; they are
all good and will be merged before -rc2.
This is to invoke a perl scriptlet with "$PERL_PATH" in one of
the new tests, instead of relying on (an incorrect) she-bang line
in the script file.
This enables the test to see the behaviour of "git clone" after
cloning a project that has paths that are different only in case
on MINGW (earlier it wanted CASE_INSENSITIVE_FS prerequisite and
in addition not on MINGW).
This fixes a "return function_that_returns_void(...)" in a
function that returns void.
