git fails to create its settings file without help

Description

This used to work, I am relatively sure:

/Code SSD/haiku/src/apps/haiku-depot> git config --global user.email "superstippi@gmx.de"
error: could not lock config file /boot/home/config/settings/git/config: No such file or directory

And it works as soon as one creates that "git" folder in settings. (I.e. git then creates the file "config" in that folder.) I am unable to say whether this is an issue with a newer port of git, or something got broken with PM.

Summary: PM: For some reasons, git failes to create its settings file without helpgit fails to create its settings file without help

It's an issue with git port. The config file was formerly "$HOME/.gitconfig", so its parent directory always existed. Now it potentially has to create the parent directory, which isn't considered yet.

Is this still an issue?

Nope. It's been long since fixed.
