Yeah, this is definitely dumb http (since http-push is involved at all,
which the original error message showed).  Code 22 is curl's "there was
an HTTP error" code, but http-push annoyingly does not output the actual
HTTP error[1]. You can see more by setting GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1 in the

Though if you know you did not set up WebDAV on the server, then we can
know that is the problem even without seeing the HTTP code. :)


[1] The dumb-http push code is largely unloved and unmaintained at this
    point. Yet another reason to move to smart http.
