This doesn't agree with the git docs. They document this format:

       ·   ssh://[user@]host.xz[:port]/path/to/repo.git/

And this one:

       ·   [user@]host.xz:path/to/repo.git/

We've been aware of the mismatch between git and hg here for eight
years. It's way too late to fix.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
