This is a recurring issue because most people cannot set this up 
properly. You can tell from the commit message whether it was done by 
hand or by addport (presence of indentation). I've tried before to make 
this work, but was unable to. I've requested a couple times for 
somebody to just show step-by-step what needs to be done, but haven't 
yet seen such.
