I wanted to try 1.3.1

Line 242. in reset_options. Here's some context

        'rsh'           => 'ssh'     ,
        'summary'       => 'short'   ,
        'config'        => \&config  ,
        'client'        => \&client  ,
        'branch'        => \&branch  ,

Setting config manually to /etc/dirvish/master.conf seems to make it work
for me.
