Unsetting HOME is an easy way to skip what is in ~/.gitconfig when
helping other people on this list, and I wouldn't mind such a
warning while I knowingly unset it, I can imagine other helpful
people may find such a warning irritating and complain "I know I do
not have $HOME set, as I earlier explicitly did unset it myself!".
So, I am on the fence on this one, but because
(1) no warning would mean upstart scripts writers need to be aware
of lack of $HOME, but they need to be aware of it for reasons
unrelated to Git anyway; and
(2) a warning while trying vanilla Git behaviour to help others
might be irritating, it is not an every day use anyway.
I do not think it matters either way in practice.
