comment Why is “dir-or-file-in-usr-local” an error rather than a warning?
This partially answered my question. How do I configure rpmlint to change its /usr/local policy? I haven't been able to figure this out through man pages or through google. I've only been able to figure out that I'll probably need to set an option in /etc/rpmlint/config, but that file only contains a one-line header on my system.

comment bash scripting - read tarball from stdin
Right. I must've had some command reading from stdin by accident and not realized it. Sometimes human errors can be the most difficult errors to debug.

ah. Haha. I get more output than that. Ok. Try running unset SSH_ASKPASS before running git push in the same shell. Does this help?

Also, what happens when you try to ssh somewhere? Do you get the same behavior? git may be invoking ssh in an odd way.

Nevermind. I got it to work. I'm not really sure what I changed to fix it or why it wasn't working before, but, uh... thanks for your help? :)

comment bash scripting - read tarball from stdin
That's what I thought. But that doesn't explain why it isn't working for me. If, at the very top of my bash script, I run cat > file then run file on the result, I can clearly see the desired filetype is gzipped-encoded tar. But if I move the cat line down to where I want to run it, the result is an empty file. I don't have anything else that should be reading from (or writing to) stdin in my entire script.

Sounds like git is trying to use a GUI for some reason, or maybe ssh itself is trying to use a GUI to ask for a password. What's the output of which git, git --version, and which ssh?

comment regex matching with “locate”
@JackJones you don't even need locate to speed up results. E.g.: echo /home/jack/**/*My.*
