Bug Description

when using a private git repository from Launchpad, snapcraft fails to fetch the repo content as it tries to convert url to the local path

name: test-snap
base: core22
    plugin: dump
    source: git+ssh://git.launchpad.net/~my-team/me/+git/my-project
    source-type: git
    source-branch: main
    source-depth: 1
      - -*

This example will result in the following error:
Failed to pull source: command ['git', 'clone', '--recursive', '--branch', 'upstream', '--depth', '1', 'file:///home/ubuntu/test-snap/git+ssh://git.launchpad.net/~my-team/me/+git/my-project', PosixPath('/home/ubuntu/host/test-snap/parts/private-repo/src')] exited with code 128.

Mind that "git+ssh://git.launchpad.net.." is what launchpad provides as url to be used for the private repositories.

So it is a bit unfortunate that Launchpad and snapcraft do not agree on a valid git URL format.

It is also a regression in behaviour from base: core20

if this was the kernel branch, it has been rebased to 7.3 too (7.3.post1+git5d158298)

See https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/core22-fails-for-git-urls/34565/8?u=mr_cal, where @cjwatson mentions that `git://` protocol is not supported by launchpad-buildd.

Perhaps snapcraft should provide a validation warning or linter warning that the `git://` protocol may not work when building on Launchpad?

I'm marking this as confirmed but clarifying the scope of the bug.

The bug is that the `git://` protocol is supported by snapcraft and may work locally but will fail on Launchpad with an unhelpful error.
