      Windows 7 (msysgit 1.9.4)

      The git-usercontent plugin reports an error when I try to clone the repository outside Jenkins using git command line to clone through the http URL (for example http://mark-pc1:45089/.

      The following ssh based clone works in all my tests:

      git clone ssh://mark-pc1:49438/userContent.git

      The following http based clone fails (on the specified git versions):

      git clone http://mark-pc1:8080/userContent.git

      The http based clone succeeds on Debian Wheezy (git

      The http based clone fails on Debian Jessie (git, Ubuntu 14.04 (git 1.9.1), and CentOS 7 (git

      The command line git error message in the failure is:

      mwaite@mark-pc1:~$ git clone http://mark-pc1:8080/userContent.git
      Cloning into 'userContent'...
      fatal: http://mark-pc1:8080/userContent.git/info/refs not valid: is this a git repository?

      The work around is to use ssh to clone the repository instead of http.
