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.
