So this problem also existed with the Cabal repo on github. I don't
think the cause of the error is anything to do with a users git config
though, I think its a problem that arises from darcs patches that have
been converted to git. It might be worth checking the various darcs
converters and fixing them not to produce git patches that fail this
Anyway. I emailed the github people and got them to disable the error
checking step on the cabal repo on github just a few days back, and so
now the cabal repo is up to date and working fine. I'll email them now
about the haddock repo and ask them to do the same. Is anyone aware of
any other repos on github that we are having issues with?
