I am a pass noob; apologies if this has been asked and answered already,
but I didn't see a way to easily search the list archives.

Looks like the git "-C" option is not in the latest version of git.
Initializing the password store as a git repository fails:

$ pass git init
Unknown option: -C
usage: git [--version] [--help] [-c name=value]
           [--exec-path[=<path>]] [--html-path] [--man-path] [--info-path]
           [-p|--paginate|--no-pager] [--no-replace-objects] [--bare]
           [--git-dir=<path>] [--work-tree=<path>] [--namespace=<name>]
           <command> [<args>]
$ git --version
git version
$ pass version
