Hi Guys,

I was the original author of the test, I am sorry about the typo.

I will submit a patch fixing the test. The fix can be checked at
https://github.com/git/git/pull/451.

'configset_get_value' will be changed to 'configset_get_value_multi'
since the test expects a list of values instead of a single value.

Thanks,
Tanay Abhra
