I saw it when looking up the exact details to write my former reply. But
since at that point all the changes are already applied (and the editor
only allows you to change the automatic header in something more sensible),
I'm not sure what a proper failure would bring.
If we want to abort the whole commit operation, like git would do, it
will need a lot more work for very little gain IMO.

Oh, this is pretty confusing... because we do have dgit/<suite> branches
in refs/heads/ after a "dgit clone".
What you mean is that on the server side the dgit-branches containing the
uploads are in refs/dgit/ and not in refs/heads/. But there will also
be refs/heads/dgit/<suite> branches on the server side since that's where
people will naturally push stuff:
$ dgit clone dgit
$ cat .git/HEAD
$ cat .git/config
fetch = +refs/dgit/*:refs/remotes/dgit/dgit/*
url = git+ssh://git.debian.org/git/dgit-repos/dgit.git
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
$ git push --dry-run
* [new branch] dgit/sid -> dgit/sid
So there's a refs/head/dgit/<suite> and it can be pushed to the server.
But it will be different to the refs/dgit/<suite> that gets merged by
Speaking of braindamage... :-)
