+Git v184.108.40.206 Release Notes
+Fixes since v220.127.116.11
+ * We used to allow committing a path ".Git/config" with Git that is
+ running on a case sensitive filesystem, but an attempt to check out
+ such a path with Git that runs on a case insensitive filesystem
+ would have clobbered ".git/config", which is definitely not what
+ the user would have expected. Git now prevents you from tracking
+ a path with ".Git" (in any case combination) as a path component.
+ * On Windows, certain path components that are different from ".git"
+ are mapped to ".git", e.g. "git~1/config" is treated as if it were
+ ".git/config". HFS+ has a similar issue, where certain unicode
+ codepoints are ignored, e.g. ".g\u200cit/config" is treated as if
+ it were ".git/config". Pathnames with these potential issues are
+ rejected on the affected systems. Git on systems that are not
+ affected by this issue (e.g. Linux) can also be configured to
+ reject them to ensure cross platform interoperability of the hosted
+ * "git fsck" notices a tree object that records such a path that can
+ be confused with ".git", and with receive.fsckObjects configuration
+ set to true, an attempt to "git push" such a tree object will be
+ rejected. Such a path may not be a problem on a well behaving
+ filesystem but in order to protect those on HFS+ and on case
+ insensitive filesystems, this check is enabled on all platforms.
+A big "thanks!" for bringing this issue to us goes to our friends in
+the Mercurial land, namely, Matt Mackall and Augie Fackler.
+Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code clean-ups.
