+ Specifying passwords directly in ``git://`` urls is not supported.
+ There are several reasons: ``SRC_URI`` is often written out to logs and
+ other places, and that could easily leak passwords; it is also all too
+ easy to share metadata without removing passwords. SSH keys, ``~/.netrc``
+ and ``~/.ssh/config`` files can be used as alternatives.
