From: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
Date: 2006-08-13 13:17:40
The latest feature release GIT 1.4.2 is available at the usual
places:

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/

  git-1.4.2.tar.{gz,bz2}			(tarball)
  git-htmldocs-1.4.2.tar.{gz,bz2}		(preformatted docs)
  git-manpages-1.4.2.tar.{gz,bz2}		(preformatted docs)
  RPMS/$arch/git-*-1.4.2-1.$arch.rpm	(RPM)

I do not currently have access to i386 RH boxes, so there is
only x86_64 RPM in the RPMS directory mentioned above.
