I think after the sentence refname = ...., variable refname should be right, but it seems not. Please examine if after that sentence, refname contains some symbol like ~ or " "(space). If it does, the command after that may not deal with it correctly.

Thanks. unfortunately, after several days of work. The whole webkit is not converted into git repo, because I met another problem. It said index mismatch. And I was not able to solve it anymore. I plan to convert it later again. It's awful. If you have any question, feel free to inform me. I always eager to help in my spare time.
