GIT v1.5.6.4 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.5.6.3

long pathnames.

* There wasn't a way to make --pretty=format:%<> specifiers to honor

being rewritten.

* "git-rm" lost track of where the index file was when GIT_DIR was
specified as a relative path.

* "git-rev-list --quiet" was not quiet as advertised.

Contains other various documentation fixes.
