insteadOf and git-request-pull output




Hi, all:

Looks like setting url.insteadOf rules alters the output of
git-request-pull. I'm not sure that's the intended use of insteadOf,
which is supposed to replace URLs for local use, not to expose them
publicly (but I may be wrong). E.g.:

$ git request-pull HEAD^ git://foo.example.com/example | grep example
  git://foo.example.com/example

$ git config url.ssh://bar.insteadOf git://foo

$ git request-pull HEAD^ git://foo.example.com/example | grep example
  ssh://bar.example.com/example

I think that if we use the "principle of least surprise," insteadOf
rules shouldn't be applied for git-request-pull URLs.

Best,
-K
