      Description

      Not sure if this affects production systems, or indeed why it is not reported by everyone, but anyway I was unable to make AbstractGitSCMSource.retrieve(SCMHeadObserver, TaskListener) work in a test without this fix. (And there was no test for it.) Doing so failed with:

      Perhaps some, but not all, versions of git-client barf if you try to run git init in a nonexistent directory?
