Description

It looks like they are starting to make too many releases again. Marking hold for a while to see if they stabilize.

Change History (5)

comment:1 by ken@…, 6 years ago

From the release announcement - https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/4/3/199 Git v2.8 removed README file and added a corresponding README.md file. The change however did not adjust git.spec.in that still referred to README, causing "make rpmbuild" to fail. The breakage was not noticed by anybody who tested v2.8.0-rc0 and later release candidates, and ended up in the final v2.8 release, and we saw a handful of bug reports on the list after the release happened.

This maintenance release is to correct this bug for those who run "make rpmbuild". It has no other changes.

So we can happily ignore 2.8.1.
