Did work on Windows porting today. First, fixed a reversion in the last release, that broke the git-annex branch pretty badly on Windows, causing \r to be written to files on that branch that should never have DOS line endings. Second, fixed a long-standing bug that prevented getting a file from a local bare repository on Windows.
Also refreshed all autobuilders to deal with the gnutls and openssl security holes-of-the-week. (git-annex uses gnutls only for XMPP, and does not use openssl itself, but a few programs bundled with it, like curl, do use openssl.)
A nice piece of news: OSX Homebrew now contains git-annex, so it can be
easily installed with
brew install git-annex
