Version 2.1.0-1 of Git has been uploaded and should be coming soon to a
mirror near you.  This includes the following packages:

-   git
-   git-completion
-   git-cvs
-   git-debuginfo
-   git-email
-   git-gui
-   gitk
-   git-svn
-   gitk

This is an update to take the latest v2.1.0 code from the upstream sources.

Backwards compatibility notes:

 * The default value we give to the environment variable LESS has been
   changed from "FRSX" to "FRX", losing "S" (chop long lines instead
   of wrapping).  Existing users who prefer not to see line-wrapped
   output may want to set

     $ git config core.pager "less -S"

   to restore the traditional behaviour.  It is expected that people
   find output from most subcommands easier to read with the new
   default, except for "blame" which tends to produce really long
   lines.  To override the new default only for "git blame", you can
   do this:

     $ git config pager.blame "less -S"

For other updates, features and fixes in this release, please refer to the
upstream changelog:


Known issues:

 * On 64-bit Cygwin, operations involving fetching/pushing from a remote
   repository have been seen to hang in the Git test suite.  Killing and
   restarting the command that fails will normally succeed.
