I publish my topic branches via git, too, so it may be easier to replace
these steps with:
git clone -b jk/ident-canonname https://github.com/peff/git
> make install
After installing, you probably want to do:
to run the new git (and make sure that any git sub-commands that are run
come from the built version, not the rest of the system).
I have access to an OS X system, but if I understand the bug correctly,
reproducing it may involve re-setting the system hostname, which is not
something I'll be able to do. But I'll give it a shot.
