The latter half that you remove cannot be reached, because the first
half would have already died after checking the same condition, so
we were doing the same repo-index-has-changes check twice when there
is no change; in other words, we were lucky that this accidental dup
did not cause any real damange.

Thanks for spotting.  Will apply.
