git-cvs - fast, scalable, distributed revision control system (cvs interoperability)

Git is popular version control system designed to handle very large projects with speed and efficiency; it is used for many high profile open source projects, most notably the Linux kernel.
Git falls in the category of distributed source code management tools. Every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server.
This package provides the git cvsimport, cvsexportcommit, and cvsserver tools, which allow Git to read from and write to CVS repositories and offer access over CVS protocol to Git repositories.
The git cvsimport tool can incrementally import from a repository that is being actively developed and only requires remote access over CVS protocol. Unfortunately, in many situations the import leads to incorrect results. For reliable, one-shot imports, cvs2git from the cvs2svn package or parsecvs may be a better fit.

Mar 23
  • git 2.25.0
    • The branch description ("git branch --edit-description") has been used to fill the body of the cover letters by the format-patch command; this has been enhanced so that the subject can also be filled.
    • A few commands learned to take the pathspec from the standard input or a named file, instead of taking it as the command line arguments, with the "--pathspec-from-file" option.
    • Test updates to prepare for SHA-2 transition continues.
    • Redo "git name-rev" to avoid recursive calls.
    • When all files from some subdirectory were renamed to the root directory, the directory rename heuristics would fail to detect that as a rename/merge of the subdirectory to the root directory, which has been corrected.
    • HTTP transport had possible allocator/deallocator mismatch, which has been corrected.
    • dropped patch git-skip-test-s390x-aarch64-fail.patch (bsc#1156651)
    • upstream maintainers have skipped the test themselves

  • new upstream point release (see RelNotes/2.20.2.txt).
    • Addresses the security issues CVE-2019-1348, CVE-2019-1349, CVE-2019-1350, CVE-2019-1351, CVE-2019-1352, CVE-2019-1353, CVE-2019-1354, and CVE-2019-1387.

    Credit for finding these vulnerabilities goes to Microsoft
    Security Response Center, in particular to Nicolas Joly. Fixes
    were provided by Jeff King and Johannes Schindelin with help
    from Garima Singh.

    • Addresses CVE-2019-19604, arbitrary code execution via the "update" field in .gitmodules.

Debian 9.0 stretch/main: Updated from 1:2.11.0-3+deb9u4 to 1:2.11.0-3+deb9u5

Feb 08
  • Apply patches addressing the security issues CVE-2019-1348, CVE-2019-1349, CVE-2019-1352, CVE-2019-1353, and CVE-2019-1387.

Credit for finding these vulnerabilities goes to Microsoft
Security Response Center, in particular to Nicolas Joly. Fixes
were provided by Jeff King and Johannes Schindelin with help
from Garima Singh.

  • Reject setting "update = !command" in .gitmodules. This makes the behavior better match Git 2.24.1 which made the same change to address the arbitrary code execution issue CVE-2019-19604 (which does not affect Git versions before 2.20.0).

Also reject "update = !command" in fsck. This ensures that if
Git is run as a server with "transfer.fsckObjects" enabled,
it cannot be used to attack clients vulnerable to
CVE-2019-19604.

Credit for finding this vulnerability goes to Joern
Schneeweisz from GitLab.
