launchpad git config instructions should include your username

Bug #1600055 reported by Thomi Richards on 2016-07-07
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

On a project's +configure-code page, in the git setup instructions, the instructions mention:

Push a new repository

You can add a remote for your Git repository with the command:

git remote add origin git+ssh://

… and push the Git branch to Launchpad with:

git push origin master

However this will fail if the user's local shell username is different from their launchpad username. Ideally the instructions should render the users launchpad username, like so:

git remote add origin git+ssh://<email address hidden>/pmr

Looks like lp:1590560 could be marked as a duplicate of this one. Not 100% sure though.
