I got mail from gitlab complaining about my recent fix to

Commit Message: Fix to not use --disable-debug

Job #41726247 ( )

Stage: build
Name: centos-6-refclocks
Trace:     --bool                value is "true" or "false"
    --int                 value is decimal number
    --bool-or-int         value is --bool or --int

The web page at the URL says:

Running with gitlab-runner 10.2.0 (0a75cdd1)
  on CentOS 6 (a6d404ee)
Using Shell executor...
Running on centos-6-1...

error: unknown option `local'
usage: git config [options]

Config file location
    --global              use global config file
    --system              use system config file
    -f, --file <FILE>     use given config file


I can't figure out what it is trying to tell me.  There is no "local" in my 
script.  It works on my CentOS 6 system.  Note that it is git complaining.  
My script does waf builds, no git.

Did this work before my change?  Is somebody working on the gitlab stuff and 
my push just happened at the right time to uncover a bug?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
