Doc Text:
.`git` rebased to version 2.27 The `git` packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.27. Notable changes over the previously available version 2.18 include: * The `git checkout` command has been split into two separate commands: + ** `git switch` for managing branches ** `git restore` for managing changes within the directory tree + * The behavior of the `git rebase` command is now based on the `merge` workflow by default rather than the previous `patch+apply` workflow. To preserve the previous behavior, set the `rebase.backend` configuration variable to `apply`. * The `git difftool` command can now be used also outside a repository. * Four new configuration variables, `{author,committer}.{name,email}`, have been introduced to override `user.{name,email}` in more specific cases. * Several new options have been added that enable users to configure SSL for communication with proxies. * Handling of commits with log messages in non-UTF-8 character encoding has been improved in the `git fast-export` and `git fast-import` utilities. * The `lfs` extension has been added as a new `git-lfs` package. Git Large File Storage (LFS) replaces large files with text pointers inside `Git` and stores the file contents on a remote server.

Description Honza Horak 2020-04-17 06:22:20 UTC
Description of problem:
Since git maintains pretty good level of compatibility, the idea is to keep only a single stream of git and rebase regularly during RHEL-8 release. This bug tracks rebasing git to 2.26.
