Git v2.3.7 Release Notes

Fixes since v2.3.6

* An earlier update to the parser that disects a URL broke an
address, followed by a colon, followed by an empty string (instead
of the port number), e.g. ssh://example.com:/path/to/repo.

* The completion script (in contrib/) contaminated global namespace
and clobbered on a shell variable $x.

* The "git push --signed" protocol extension did not limit what the
"nonce" that is a server-chosen string can contain or how long it
can be, which was unnecessarily lax. Limit both the length and the
alphabet to a reasonably small space that can still have enough

Also contains typofixes, documentation updates and trivial code


Changes since v2.3.6 are as follows:

Junio C Hamano (2):
push --signed: tighten what the receiving end can ask to sign
Git 2.3.7

MÃrcio Almada (1):
completion: fix global bash variable leak on __gitcompappend

Torsten BÃgershausen (1):
connect.c: ignore extra colon after hostname
