Err, what are these lines in builtin/receive-pack.c doing, then?

        int cmd_receive_pack(int argc, const char **argv, const char *prefix)

                if (!enter_repo(dir, 0))
                        die("'%s' does not appear to be a git repository", dir);

                if (is_repository_shallow())
                        die("attempt to push into a shallow repository");
