My bad.  I upgraded the gitlab-runner on our Centos6 VM and did not test it afterwards.

The new gitlab-runner uses "git --config local", which is only supported in 1.7.7+ (CentOS 6 ships with 1.7.1)

As suggested in, I've installed git 1.9 from CentOS Software Collections.  I've re-run the failed pipelines and all builds are now succeeding.

Sorry for the trouble!
