release for the v2.0 series.

Git v2.0.3 Release Notes

 * An ancient rewrite passed a wrong pointer to a curl library
   function in a rarely used code path.

 * "filter-branch" left an empty single-parent commit that results when
   all parents of a merge commit gets mapped to the same commit, even
   under "--prune-empty".

 * "log --show-signature" incorrectly decided the color to paint a
   mergetag that was and was not correctly validated.

 * "log --show-signature" did not pay attention to "--graph" option.

Also a lot of fixes to the tests and some updates to the docs are
