Could not parse manifest


Somehow, I got into a weird state that Pkg complains about not being able to parse the manifest file:

(MyPackage) pkg> st
Project MyPackage v0.1.0
ERROR: Could not parse manifest : CompositeException(Any[ParserError(4125, 4125, "expected a key but found an empty string")])

The funny thing is that the error persisted even after I removed the Manifest.toml file… Then, I re-generated the manifest by running instantiate from the package mode and the error still didn’t go away…

Finally, I narrowed it down to something in the .git directory. If I remove the whole .git directory, then the problem goes away.

So my question is – does Pkg use git in anyway? How do I fix it properly?
