The latest maintenance release Git v2.37.2 is now available at
the usual places.  

This is to merge down the bugfixes accumulated on the 'master' front
since Git v2.37.1 was tagged.  There was no particular reason why it
had to be released today, as none of the bugs fixed are security
bugs.  But there are a few correctness related bugfixes, and users
are encouraged to update, unless they are already running 'master'
or above, in which case they already have all the fixes that appear

The tarballs are found at:

The following public repositories all have a copy of the 'v2.37.2'
tag and the 'maint' branch that the tag points at:

Git 2.37.2 Release Notes

This primarily is to backport various fixes accumulated on the 'master'
front since 2.37.1.

Fixes since v2.37.1

 * "git shortlog -n" relied on the underlying qsort() to be stable,
   which shouldn't have.  Fixed.

 * Variable quoting fix in the vimdiff driver of "git mergetool".

 * An earlier attempt to plug leaks placed a clean-up label to jump to
   at a bogus place, which as been corrected.

 * Fixes a long-standing corner case bug around directory renames in
   the merge-ort strategy.

 * Recent update to vimdiff layout code has been made more robust
   against different end-user vim settings.

 * In a non-bare repository, the behavior of Git when the
   core.worktree configuration variable points at a directory that has
   a repository as its subdirectory, regressed in Git 2.27 days.

 * References to commands-to-be-typed-literally in "git rebase"
   documentation mark-up have been corrected.

 * Give _() markings to fatal/warning/usage: labels that are shown in
   front of these messages.

 * "git mktree --missing" lazily fetched objects that are missing from
   the local object store, which was totally unnecessary for the purpose
   of creating the tree object(s) from its input.

 * Fixes for tests when the source directory has unusual characters in
   its path, e.g. whitespaces, double-quotes, etc.

 * Adjust technical/bitmap-format to be formatted by AsciiDoc, and
   add some missing information to the documentation.

 * Certain diff options are currently ignored when combined-diff is
   shown; mark them as incompatible with the feature.

 * "git clone" from a repository with some ref whose HEAD is unborn
   did not set the HEAD in the resulting repository correctly, which
   has been corrected.

 * mkstemp() emulation on Windows has been improved.

 * Add missing documentation for "include" and "includeIf" features in
   "git config" file format, which incidentally teaches the command
   line completion to include them in its offerings.

 * Avoid "white/black-list" in documentation and code comments.

 * Workaround for a compiler warning against use of die() in
   osx-keychain (in contrib/).

 * Workaround for a false positive compiler warning.

 * The resolve-undo information in the index was not protected against
   GC, which has been corrected.

 * A corner case bug where lazily fetching objects from a promisor
   remote resulted in infinite recursion has been corrected.

 * "git p4" working on UTF-16 files on Windows did not implement
   CRLF-to-LF conversion correctly, which has been corrected.

 * "git p4" did not handle non-ASCII client name well, which has been

 * "rerere-train" script (in contrib/) used to honor commit.gpgSign
   while recreating the throw-away merges.

 * "git checkout" miscounted the paths it updated, which has been

 * Fix for a bug that makes write-tree to fail to write out a
   non-existent index as a tree, introduced in 2.37.

 * There was a bug in the codepath to upgrade generation information
   in commit-graph from v1 to v2 format, which has been corrected.

Also contains minor documentation updates and code clean-ups.
