500 HTTP error when issuing ReadIdentities SOAP API call

I'm encountering an error when issuing a git-tf checkin --deep --keep-author command. It complains that the Git users cannot be mapped to TFS users. When checking the git-tf-soap.log file, I see SOAP method='ReadIdentities', status=500 entries - suggesting that git-tf cannot get the TFS users from TFS.

I'm running git-tf against a TFS 2010 on-premises installation. I did not install TFS 2010 in the organization.

What needs to be done to get this working?

OK...my bad. A previous discussion thread indicated TFS 2010 doesn't support the requests required for --keep-author processing. I won't use --keep-author for our deep checkins. Or, if I'm ambitious, add support for it locally.
