Right. Inside git trees, "." as an entry name does not have any special
meaning. However, because it does have meaning in filesystems, git
itself will never create such an entry, and "git fsck" will warn about

GitHub normally blocks objects that do not pass "fsck" from being
pushed, but there are some loopholes when going through the API, which
stackedit does. I'll bring this one to the attention of the GitHub API

However, the end result will probably be GitHub rejecting the API
request from stackedit to create the bogus tree. So stackedit may end up
wanting to adjust their code to handle the situation more gracefully
