archive: read local configuration
Since b9605bc4f2 ("config: only read .git/config from configured repos", 2016-09-12), we do not read from ".git/config" unless we know we are in a repository. "git archive" however didn't do the repository discovery and instead relied on the old behaviour. Teach the command to run a "gentle" version of repository discovery so that local configuration variables are honoured. [jc: stole tests from peff] Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
