    docs/config: mention protocol implications of url.insteadOf · 2c9a2ae2
    Jeff King authored
    If a URL rewrite switches the protocol to something
    nonstandard (like "persistent-https" for "https"), the user
    may be bitten by the fact that the default protocol
    restrictions are different between the two. Let's drop a
    note in insteadOf that points the user in the right
    direction.
    
    It would be nice if we could make this work out of the box,
    but we can't without knowing the security implications of
    the user's rewrite. Only the documentation for a particular
    remote helper can advise one way or the other. Since we do
    include the persistent-https helper in contrib/ (and since
    it was the helper in the real-world case that inspired that
    patch), let's also drop a note there.
