Magit is trying to figure out whether
"tidy_html5_DEV-Linux-64bit.tar.xz" refers to a git repo (in which
case it would add it as a git submodule, instead of plain 'git add').
It does this by checking whether there's ".git" file beneath it.
This seems to conflict with the new archive handling feature of tramp.
Not sure if there is a way to resolve it. If not, then I guess magit
must explicitly check whether "tidy_html5_DEV-Linux-64bit.tar.xz" is a
directory first.
