Why do you create a non-bare repository and then make it bare? Before I
discovered this patch, I created the nmbug repository by hand and it was
possible to do it with bare repo from beginning. The following code
seems to work and is a bit simpler:

def init(remote=None):
    """
    Create an empty nmbug repository.

    This wraps 'git init' with a few extra steps to support subsequent
    status and commit commands.
    """
    _spawn(
        args=['git', '--git-dir', NMBGIT, 'init', '--bare'],
        wait=True)
    # create an empty blob (e69de29bb2d1d6434b8b29ae775ad8c2e48c5391)
    _git(args=['hash-object', '-w', '--stdin'], input='', wait=True)
    _git(
        args=[
            'commit', '--allow-empty', '-m', 'Start a new nmbug repository'
            ],
        additional_env={'GIT_WORK_TREE': NMBGIT},
        wait=True)

Note that in the initial commit I set the work tree to NMBGIT. This is
because 'git commit' needs some work tree, but in our case it doesn't
matter which one because the commit is empty.
