      Description

      GitHub's help page says:

      You need git 1.7.10 or newer to use the credential helper

      It would be nice if git-client could detect an unsupported version of Git and throw an error instead of making it look like something else is broken. (the call to git config succeeded, but the git fetch after it failed)
