I've been seeing a message about a changes in git after I upgrade recently. I've tried to figure out what it is telling me but it is way over my head. I'm not seeing a problem anywhere; I just wanted to understand what I am seeing and what if any action I should take.
git (1:1.8.4~rc0-1) experimental; urgency=low
Starting with this version, gitweb and "git daemon" on Debian are
configured to look for repositories under /var/lib/git by default
instead of /var/cache/git. You may want to adjust your inetd,
rsyncd, and web server configuration to use the new base path.
See /usr/share/doc/git/README.Debian for details.
Symlinks are installed during the upgrade to ensure existing
repositories remain accessible. If no local scripts or
configuration depend on /var/cache/git then it is safe to remove
the old directory after replacing these symlinks with their
mv --backup /var/cache/git/* /var/lib/git/

git (1:1.8.2~rc0-1) experimental; urgency=low
The default behavior of "git push" when run without specifying any
ref names will change in the upcoming Git 2.0 release.
The previous default behavior was to use "matching" semantics: push
all branches for which there is already a branch of the same name on
the remote end. The new default is "simple" semantics: push the
current branch to a branch of the same name, provided that "git
pull" is configured to integrate with that branch. You can get a
glimpse of the future with
echo '[push] default = simple' >>~/.gitconfig
See Documentation/RelNotes/1.8.2.txt and the entry on push.default
in git-config(1) for details.

git (1:1.8.0-1) experimental; urgency=low
Git's bash completion script is now loaded on the fly when tab
completion is attempted for the 'git' or 'gitk' command. This
change involved moving the completion script. If your ~/.bashrc
then it should be corrected to
if [ -e /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/git ]; then
elif [ -e /etc/bash_completion.d/git ]; then
See /usr/share/doc/bash-completion/README.Debian for details.
