* "git diff --indent-heuristic" had a bad corner case performance.
(merge 301ef85401 sb/indent-heuristic-optim later to maint).
+ * The "--exec" option to "git rebase --rebase-merges" placed the exec
+ commands at wrong places, which has been corrected.
+ * "git verify-tag" and "git verify-commit" have been taught to use
+ the exit status of underlying "gpg --verify" to signal bad or
+ untrusted signature they found.

+ * "git mergetool" stopped and gave an extra prompt to continue after
+ the last path has been handled, which did not make much sense.
+ (merge d651a54b8a ng/mergetool-lose-final-prompt later to maint).
+ * Among the three codepaths we use O_APPEND to open a file for
+ appending, one used for writing GIT_TRACE output requires O_APPEND
+ implementation that behaves sensibly when multiple processes are
+ writing to the same file. POSIX emulation used in the Windows port
+ has been updated to improve in this area.
+ (merge d641097589 js/mingw-o-append later to maint).

+ an intermediate process did not understand what "-v(erbose)" flag
+ meant, which has been fixed.

+ * When "git rebase -i" is told to squash two or more commits into
+ one, it labeled the log message for each commit with its number.
+ It correctly called the first one "1st commit", but the next one
+ was "commit #1", which was off-by-one. This has been corrected.
