Re: [jgit-dev] approaching release 3.4

Hi Matthias,
I think there is a major regression that needs to be fixed (see [1]) as it potentially breaks any operation with credentials encoded in the Git URL.

Regression was introduced with the support of the .netrc (see [2]) without honouring the credentials (user:pass@host) encoded in the URL: as a result any existing Git connections using the credentials in this way would eventually break.
The fix should be easy (just use the password in the URIish if present) and would then restore the existing behaviour.

If we are going to release 3.4 without fixing this regression, we should warn the users in the release notes that any credential in the URL is not honoured anymore.

The 3.4 release is tracked here

The release review is scheduled for Sept 24.

I generated the IP logs for 3.5.0 and sent them to the legal team for IP review
and forked the stable-3.5 branches.

From now on 
- push changes which should reach 3.5 to the stable-3.5 branch
- push changes for 3.6 to the master branch

I am on the way to flip the version to 3.6.0-SNAPSHOT on master. 

We can't accept contributor changes for 3.5 anymore since we don't want to
amend the IP logs which are in review now.
