Dear diary, on Tue, Aug 09, 2005 at 06:06:10PM CEST, I got a letter

it appears that git-http-pull is broken. It gives me a different error
now and with the latest git, though. When using just core git:

$ wget
$ mv master .git/refs/heads/
$ cat .git/refs/heads/master
$ git-http-pull -a -v $(cat .git/refs/heads/master) \

Kaboom. I think the issue might be that the reference dependency tree
building is broken and it should've pulled the other pack as well.
