Thanks.

"git log" and other tools have the ability to rewrap lines and will get
confused by this transcript.  Can you indent it to unconfuse them?

nit: inconsistent vertical whitespace (extra blank line?)

I think this would be easier to read with all the release commands
together:

	...

	free(remote);
	free(remoteurl);
	strbuf_release(&remotesb);
	return relurl;

I still think this would be easier to read with a style that makes
the ownership passing clearer:

			char *oldurl = url;
			url = compute_submodule_clone_url(oldurl);
			free(oldurl);

With whatever subset of the above tweaks makes sense,
