Maybe I'm misunderstanding what this does, but changing the push
default was *the* backwards compatibility breakage we advertised for

A lot of users (including myself) upgraded to v2.0.0 very carefully
making sure that the common pattern of "git push" our users were using
wasn't broken.

But apparently that change isn't taking effect until now. If so I
think this needs to be advertised a lot more prominently than buried
down along with other miscellaneous fixes in the changelog.
