I figured it out.

I made a temporary copy of the directory, and kept doing

$ rm -rf .git
$ rm somerandomfileordir
$ cg-init
$ cg-status

It turned out one of my files had a "'" in the name, i.e.:

$ ls
Zack's_file
$

I removed it, and all of a sudden cg-init worked perfectly.

Is that a Cogito bug? I would expect git to handle any filename the filesystem
itself can handle.

Be well,
Zack
