I'm sorry to be always moaning about it, but git really does seem to
involve jumping through a lot of mystifying extra hoops.

Well, Bash remembers it! It was:
git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/publicity/dpn.git
I see now that the HowToContribute page suggests that people without
Alioth accounts should run
git clone https://anonscm.debian.org/git/publicity/dpn.git dpn
to access the repository anonymously. If "anonymously" means "in a
manner that will make it impossible to follow the rest of these
instructions", that should probably be mentioned.

Aha! Mine has:
url = git://anonscm.debian.org/publicity/dpn.git
So maybe I should start again with:
git clone ssh://git.debian.org/publicity/dpn.git
And in fact I see that's mentioned on the HowToContribute page. But
when I scrub my existing dpn directory and try the above, I get:
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
