[darcs-users] _darcs/format and .git/darcs-format

I have a repository that my machine only accesses by HTTP, i.e., I intend to
put patches in by running darcs myself on the remote machine.  I have not
installed the CGI on the server.

On the remote machine, I do:

I do darcs initialize
darcs add -r .
darcs record --all

On the local machine, I do:

darcs get http://path/to/repo
darcs whatsnew
"No changes!"
darcs send

darcs then connects to the repo and tries to download repo/_darcs/format,
which doesn't exist.

I found some docs that siuggest that format should be blank, so I do, on the
remote machine:
touch repo/_darcs/format

Then try darcs send again from the local machine:
Can't understand repository format: The requested URL repo/.git/darcs-format
was not found on this server.

I decided to create that too, and got:

You need to be in a repository directory to run this command.

I was.

The darcs version on the remote machine is the statically linked Linux
binary, 1.0.7pre1 (unknown).

On the local machine it is the Cygwin version, 1.0.7 (release)

Perhaps this minor version number is the reason, but I'm not easily able to
compile darcs from source right now.

Any suggestions?
