Subject [GitHub] couchdb-couch-log pull request: Make git clone base URL configurab...
Date Sun, 12 Oct 2014 18:10:08 GMT
Github user rnewson commented on the pull request:
        Any URL that starts with this value will be rewritten to start, instead, with <base>.
In cases where some site serves a large number of repositories, and serves them with multiple
access methods, and some users need to use different access methods, this feature allows people
to specify any of the equivalent URLs and have git automatically rewrite the URL to the best
alternative for the particular user, even for a never-before-seen repository on the site.
When more than one insteadOf strings match a given URL, the longest match is used.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at or file a JIRA ticket
with INFRA.
