Subject[ANNOUNCE] Git v2.38.2
The latest maintenance release Git v2.38.2 is now available at the
usual places. There is nothing exciting here, it mostly is to
backport/backmerge the accumulated fixes, including GitHub CI
integration, made during 2.39 development cycle to the 2.38
maintenance track.

The tarballs are found at:

The following public repositories all have a copy of the 'v2.38.2'
tag and the 'maint' branch that the tag points at:

Git 2.38.2 Release Notes

This is to backport various fixes accumulated during the development
towards Git 2.39, the next feature release.

Fixes since v2.38.1

* Update CodingGuidelines to clarify what features to use and avoid
in C99.

* The codepath that reads from the index v4 had unaligned memory
accesses, which has been corrected.

* "git remote rename" failed to rename a remote without fetch
refspec, which has been corrected.

* "git clone" did not like to see the "--bare" and the "--origin"
options used together without a good reason.

* Fix messages incorrectly marked for translation.

* "git fsck" failed to release contents of tree objects already used
from the memory, which has been fixed.

* "git rebase -i" can mistakenly attempt to apply a fixup to a commit
itself, which has been corrected.

* In read-only repositories, "git merge-tree" tried to come up with a
merge result tree object, which it failed (which is not wrong) and
led to a segfault (which is bad), which has been corrected.

* Force C locale while running tests around httpd to make sure we can
find expected error messages in the log.

* Fix a logic in "mailinfo -b" that miscomputed the length of a
substring, which lead to an out-of-bounds access.

* The codepath to sign learned to report errors when it fails to read
from "ssh-keygen".

* "GIT_EDITOR=: git branch --edit-description" resulted in failure,
which has been corrected.

* Documentation on various Boolean GIT_* environment variables have
been clarified.

* "git multi-pack-index repack/expire" used to repack unreachable
cruft into a new pack, which have been corrected.

* The code to clean temporary object directories (used for
quarantine) tried to remove them inside its signal handler, which
was a no-no.

* "git branch --edit-description" on an unborh branch misleadingly
said that no such branch exists, which has been corrected.

* GitHub CI settings have been adjusted to recent reality, merging
and cherry-picking necessary topics that have been prepared for Git

* `git rebase --update-refs` would delete references when all `update-ref`
commands in the sequencer were removed, which has been corrected.

Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
