(1) ssh:// is fine for git, and equivalent to git+ssh:// protocol.
You need to use this protocol if you don't want to have to reset the
configuration later to be able to send changes back.

(2) Yes, you need ssh://<username>@git.fedorahosted.org... if you
don't have your ~/.ssh/config setup to provide this (or don't use the
same user name locally as remotely).  I'll fix that.

(3) The second one should be git:// because there is no reason that
someone helping with the document should need write access to the
common toolset repo.  I wrote these instructions to help prevent
careless errors.  Again, the configuration in .git/config is editable
later if necessary and appropriate.
