It was originally prompted by a discussion that someone started on the
Git LFS issue tracker, yes.  I pointed out that it's actually Git that
controls credential helper matching and so I sent a patch.

I've also worked somewhere with multiple internal Git servers, so I can

I think there was some discussion on the list about whether allowing
multiple wildcards and wildcards in any part of the domain name was
