Description Todd Zullinger 2009-01-07 21:49:35 EST
As announced at http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2009-January/msg00071.html, most of the git-* commannds have been moved from the standard $PATH.  Use of the git-* form has been deprecated since around 2006 and upstream moved these commands by default with git-1.6.0.  Users are encouraged to update their scripts.  If changing scripts is not feasible, a workaround is possible:

PATH=$(git --exec-path):$PATH

Added to F11 Bugs/Known Issues page.
Comment 2 Todd Zullinger 2009-01-23 22:21:49 EST
Since it doesn't look like Docs/Beats has been scrubbed up for F11 yet, I added a note to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_11_Alpha_release_notes.  I think we should avoid calling this a bug, as it is quite intentional and in line with upstream's defaults. :)

Thanks Todd, that's the best place to put it right now.  We'll migrate content from there to the main release notes later anyway; it will also appear in the Beta release notes page, etc.
