Description

This update fixes a local privilege escalation bug in gitweb. For details: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/103624 There are also a number of bugs fixed upstream. For details, see the upstream release notes: http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/RelNotes-1.6.0.6.txt Gitk has been added as a requirement of git-gui (bug 476308) Update to 1.6.0.5 to pick up a number of smaller bugfixes from upstream

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
