+One of the following notations can be used
+to name the remote repository:
+- rsync://host.xz/path/to/repo.git/
+- http://host.xz/path/to/repo.git/
+- https://host.xz/path/to/repo.git/
+- git://host.xz/path/to/repo.git/
+- git://host.xz/~user/path/to/repo.git/
+- ssh://host.xz/path/to/repo.git/
+- ssh://host.xz/~user/path/to/repo.git/
+- ssh://host.xz/~/path/to/repo.git
+SSH Is the default transport protocol and also supports an
+scp-like syntax. Both syntaxes support username expansion,
+as does the native git protocol. The following three are
+identical to the last three above, respectively:
+- host.xz:/path/to/repo.git/
+- host.xz:~user/path/to/repo.git/
+- host.xz:path/to/repo.git
+To sync with a local directory, use:
+- /path/to/repo.git/
+In addition to the above, as a short-hand, the name of a
+file in `$GIT_DIR/remotes` directory can be given; the
+named file should be in the following format:
+ URL: one of the above URL format
+ Push: <refspec>
+ Pull: <refspec>
+When such a short-hand is specified in place of
+<repository> without <refspec> parameters on the command
+line, <refspec> specified on `Push:` lines or `Pull:`
+lines are used for `git-push` and `git-fetch`/`git-pull`,
+respectively. Multiple `Push:` and and `Pull:` lines may
+be specified for additional branch mappings.
+The name of a file in `$GIT_DIR/branches` directory can be
+specified as an older notation short-hand; the named
+file should contain a single line, a URL in one of the
+above formats, optionally followed by a hash `#` and the
+name of remote head (URL fragment notation).
+`$GIT_DIR/branches/<remote>` file that stores a <url>
+without the fragment is equivalent to have this in the
+corresponding file in the `$GIT_DIR/remotes/` directory.
+ URL: <url>
+ Pull: refs/heads/master:<remote>
+while having `<url>#<head>` is equivalent to
+ URL: <url>
+ Pull: refs/heads/<head>:<remote>
