+The credential is split into a set of named attributes, with one
+attribute per line. Each attribute is
 specified by a key-value pair, separated by an `=` (equals) sign,
 followed by a newline. The key may contain any bytes except `=`,
 newline, or NUL. The value may contain any bytes except newline or NUL.
 In both cases, all bytes are treated as-is (i.e., there is no quoting,
 and one cannot transmit a value with newline or NUL in it). The list of
 attributes is terminated by a blank line or end-of-file.
-Git will send the following attributes (but may not send all of
-them for a given credential; for example, a `host` attribute makes no
-sense when dealing with a non-network protocol):
+Git understands the following attributes:
 	The credential's password, if we are asking it to be stored.
+	When this special attribute is read by `git credential`, the
+	value is parsed as a URL and treated as if its constituent parts
+	were read (e.g., `url=https://example.com` would behave as if
+	`protocol=https` and `host=example.com` had been provided). This
+	can help callers avoid parsing URLs themselves.  Note that any
+	components which are missing from the URL (e.g., there is no
+	username in the example above) will be set to empty; if you want
+	to provide a URL and override some attributes, provide the URL
+	attribute first, followed by any overrides.
