Isn't the current message meant to be that?  Just removing the "hint:"
line would be enough to leave me happy with it.

Isn't that a criticism of the git-shell-commands facility in general?
If it is common to have a lot of users with distinct home directories
but all with git-shell as their login shell, then the
git-shell-commands should not go in their home directory to begin
with, no?

I think sharing a home directory is fine and the normal thing to do
with such a restricted account, fwiw, so I am not the one to guess
what people who do something different would find most useful.  Maybe
I am not the right person to have proposed this patch in the first
place --- I saw something that looked wrong and proposed what I
thought was a reasonable fix, but I am not actively depending on
git-shell myself, so...


Hope that helps,
