No, that's not what I'm doing. I haven't even seen a remote-hg branch
from either Sverre, or Johannes. IIRC the msysgit wiki mentions that
there were some patches not quite accepted in upstream that prevented
the remote-hg from getting upstream. But I don't know which patches
are those, I don't know why they are needed, and I haven't even been
able to run this stuff.

I was told this might be an issue for all remote helpers, and it seems
to be the case (albeit a small issue IMO).

That makes sense. So are there any other patches?

All right, so I run this and get this:

% git fast-export master..master
reset refs/heads/master
from 8c7a786b6c8eae8eac91083cdc9a6e337bc133b0

As an user of fast-export, what do I do with that now?
