Running tests with Git 2.13.0 gives a warning:
fatal: BUG: setup_git_env called without repository
fatal: --local can only be used inside a git repository
I don't know if it has other implications.

I think this is a "spurious" error, and that it will not cause any issues in terms of tests. Seems to be an issue with
pytest-benchmark plugin (see https://github.com/ionelmc/pytest-benchmark/issues/98) and how it determines project name. It will invoke command
git config --local remote.origin.url, and does not really care about empty results (I think) - it is just one of possible commands that will return project name for the plugin.

Thanks for digging up that information!
