GIT v1.6.2.1 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.6.2

* .gitignore learned to handle backslash as a quoting mechanism for
  comment introduction character "#".

* timestamp output in --date=relative mode used to display timestamps that
  are long time ago in the default mode; it now uses "N years M months
  ago", and "N years ago".

* git-add -i/-p now works with non-ASCII pathnames.

* "git hash-object -w" did not read from the configuration file from the
  correct .git directory.

* git-send-email learned to correctly handle multiple Cc: addresses.
