Hmmm. That does not (or at least no more) exist for me. Maybe the
failure below cleaned it up. Or Salvatore cleaned it up as well:

You're understanding it correctly. The purpose of that script is to
configure _and_ first-time push a so far only local git repo so that
it works as expected together with Alioth.

Your git repository likely already has a remote named "origin".

Try "git remote rename origin old-origin" and then try "dpt
alioth-repo" again.

P.S.: Are you already on the debian-perl@ list? If so we can drop
writing to you _and_ the list. :-)
