Git v1.7.9.6 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.9.5

 * "git merge $tag" to merge an annotated tag always opens the editor
   during an interactive edit session. v1.7.10 series introduced an
   environment variable GIT_MERGE_AUTOEDIT to help older scripts decline
   this behaviour, but the maintenance track should also support it.

Also contains minor fixes and documentation updates.


Changes since v1.7.9.5 are as follows:

Heiko Voigt (1):
      string-list: document that string_list_insert() inserts unique strings

Junio C Hamano (2):
      merge: backport GIT_MERGE_AUTOEDIT support
