Ah cool, permissions box checked! I find it strange that it should
want this, to be honest. But you'll need to run those commands as
whatever jenkins uses to run the git commands. Otherwise you're
setting your _own_ credentials. Another thing you could do is run
those and copy your ~/.gitconfig to the home directory of that user
(and chown it appropriately).
