+ * The test scripts for "git p4" (but not "git p4" implementation
+ itself) has been updated so that they would work even on a system

+ * The "user.useConfigOnly" configuration variable makes it an error

+ its check was not done early enough and allowed another error to

+ relying on the auto-detection at all.
+ * "git mv old new" did not adjust the path for a submodule that lives
+ as a subdirectory inside old/ directory correctly.
+ * "git push" from a corrupt repository that attempts to push a large
