Fixed a funny bug that dates at least back to v1.7.3 days. Trying to create a branch with "checkout -b" with a name that is the same as the output from "describe" (which by the way is not a recommended practice) did not work, even though giving the same name to "branch" allowed the named branch to be created.
Sent out the regular "What's cooking" summary. As we are post -rc0, things should calm down a bit for coming couple of weeks.
Commented on 5 topics.
Queued 18 patches from 6 people.
Merged 2 topics to 'next' branch for public testing.
