Okay, I checked this one.

>From pass version 1.6.0 on, pass depended on tree 1.7. The features it depends on came... from the pass community ;)
Also see http://git.zx2c4.com/password-store/tag/?h=1.6 on this.

So far, so good:
Ubuntu `trusty` ships with pass  1.4.2-3 and tree 1.6 - which should be compatible
Newer versions of Ubuntu shipping with pass >=1.6 also include tree 1.7

So this is a classic case of "if you are installing software that is newer than your distribution, you may run into some minor problems".
Unfortunately, this cannot be avoided as it would result in absolute statgnation :/

What could be nice though would be a check in the Makefile if tree>=1.7 is present and a (non-blocking) warning, if that is not the case.
In that context: patches are always welcome (though it may take a while until they are added) ;)
