Issue #4093 resolved

"Clone your new repo" instructions are incorrect for a public repo (BB-4311)

Marcus Bertrand
staff created an issue

On line 4 of the clone your new repo instructions. The command is listed as follows:

git remote add origin https://staging.bitbucket.org/USER_NAME/bacon.git

This should read:

git remote add origin https://USER_NAME@staging.bitbucket.org/USER_NAME/bacon.git

If you add a remote origin and push without the username, you are prompted for a username anyway. There is not a clear reason to exclude it.
