Git Release Notes

Fixes since v1.8.1.1

 * An element on GIT_CEILING_DIRECTORIES list that does not name the
   real path to a directory (i.e. a symbolic link) could have caused
   the GIT_DIR discovery logic to escape the ceiling.

 * Command line completion for "tcsh" emitted an unwanted space
   after completing a single directory name.

 * Command line completion leaked an unnecessary error message while
   looking for possible matches with paths in <tree-ish>.

 * "git archive" did not record uncompressed size in the header when
   streaming a zip archive, which confused some implementations of unzip.

 * When users spelled "cc:" in lowercase in the fake "header" in the
   trailer part, "git send-email" failed to pick up the addresses from
   there. As e-mail headers field names are case insensitive, this
   script should follow suit and treat "cc:" and "Cc:" the same way.

Also contains various documentation fixes.
