Download source error

Thanks Matthew/Alan.
I did try v3.0.x as well and got the same problem.
However on Ubuntu, I never had a problem. It was only when we wanted the code on a Windows laptop, the problem occurs.

Using Git Bash on Windows we tried to download the software and that’s is when we got the error. After deleting all the code as was suggested by git, we got there.

 I noticed,  the code on Ubunu, rlm_pap.c contained the line:
static const CONF_PARSER module_config[] = {{ "normalise", FR_CONF_OFFSET(PW_TYPE_BOOLEAN, rlm_pap_t, normify), "yes" },

The code on Windows, rlm_pap.c contained the line:
static const CONF_PARSER module_config[] = {{ FR_CONF_OFFSET("normalise", FR_TYPE_BOOL, rlm_pap_t, normify), .dflt = "yes" },

Note the position of "normalise"

I have used git hub for years and never seen this issue. I assume the top one is now the latest.
Not important, but if you did know why I am seeing this I would like to know

v3.1.x was an unreleased development version. It was removed mainly due to security issues, see

use v3.0.x instead.
