Comment (by eschnett):

 As hinted earlier, this will only work if CACTUS_CONFIGS_DIR is a relative
 path (i.e. does not start with a slash) that points to a subdirectory
 (i.e. does not use ".." to escape to a different location). Is that the
 case here? (Probably not.)

 These conditions should also be tested, with errors if they are violated.

 The best solution is probably to create a directory "configs" somewhere,
 copy the files there, and then run the tar/git commands there, and then
 remove this new "configs" directory again.

 On a different note: It is also debatable that this information should be
 combined with the flesh. Probably, a new tarball named "config" should be
 created for this.
