It seems that the script does not work at all with the git
available in the CentOS 6.5 distribution (1.7.1).
This is unfortunate since 6.5 is quite new from an HPC perspective.

What is the minimal git version required ?

It’s kinda easy to break things and, given the scarcity of MPI and Graph Parallel testers, I prefer to test the PR’s, develop and master branches on internal resources to ensure I don’t hit any problems before I push them to github.
