That took exactly two minutes to grep, diff, and blame.

See  1.11 has new behaviour whereby it
deliberately errors out if the HTTP response does not include a "DAV:"
header, apparently in to improve the failure mode on URLs that are not
Subversion repository URLs.

Well, we can't fix this issue on our end.  Our client code works with
our server code, but there is no way for us to ensure that our client
code (continues to) work with third-party server reimplementations.
That said, if any GitHub staff are reading this, you're welcome to
contact us on the dev@ list and we'll see what we can do.


(We can't just "remove the new check" because that would regress the
failure mode that check was added to improve.)
