Description D'juan McDonald (domhnall) 2018-11-26 17:23:02 UTC
Git before 2.19.2 on Linux and UNIX executes commands from the current working directory (as if '.' were at the end of $PATH) in certain cases involving the run_command() API and run-command.c, because there was a dangerous change from execvp to execv during 2017.

@maintainer(s): in case of bump, call for stabilization when ready, thank you.
