GIT v1.6.3.4 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.6.3.3

 * "git add --no-ignore-errors" did not override configured
   add.ignore-errors configuration.

 * "git apply --whitespace=fix" did not fix trailing whitespace on an
   incomplete line.

 * "git branch" opened too many commit objects unnecessarily.

 * "git checkout -f $commit" with a path that is a file (or a symlink) in
   the work tree to a commit that has a directory at the path issued an
   unnecessary error message.

 * "git diff -c/--cc" was very inefficient in coalescing the removed lines
   shared between parents.

 * "git diff -c/--cc" showed removed lines at the beginning of a file

 * "git remote show nickname" did not honor configured
   remote.nickname.uploadpack when inspecting the branches at the remote.

 * "git request-pull" when talking to the terminal for a preview
   showed some of the output in the pager.

 * "git request-pull start nickname [end]" did not honor configured
   remote.nickname.uploadpack when it ran git-ls-remote against the remote
   repository to learn the current tip of branches.

Includes other documentation updates and minor fixes.
