Weird, git simply isn't letting my clone this repo. Gives this error each time github.com/pallets/werkzeug

$ git clone github.com/pallets/werkzeug.gi

@micahflee Hmm, maybe fork, fix the email info, then clone?

@Micah Lee πŸ”‘ Cloned fine here.

FileSystemCache: use atomic rename to update cache, fixes concurrency issues

Sorry for the URL's being encoded, bug in Hubzilla I presume.

I did manage to clone the repo without problems with git 2.21.0 but the object you reference (ab3c3bc6f72987f051960393d1f6c5d7bebc84b9) really has weird author line:

$ git cat-file commit ab3c3bc6f72987f051960393d1f6c5d7bebc84b9

No space between name and e-mail and weird none@none string!

@micahflee it clones fine for me, maybe you were hitting a server with a corrupted cache?

@micahflee What OS are you using? Works fine on Linux.

@micahflee Also looks ok on my ancient Air running git 2.17.2 (Apple Git-113). I can view the commit object and the email looks ok to me. LANG is en_US.UTF-8 here.
