That looks much simpler. Thanks!

I realised that all the token parsing I do is not really necessary.
What I really want to do is "If this line ends with '(fetch)',
print it, but without the '(fetch)'", and I think your version
captures that succinctly.

Got it.

While it is meant to be a faithful implementation, I think this
is a good opportunity to make minor style fixes.

The message in its entirety looks like this:

error: A git directory for 'test' is found locally with remote(s):
  origin	git@github.com:tfidfwastaken/abc.git
If you want to reuse this local git directory instead of cloning again from
  git@github.com:tfidfwastaken/test.git
use the '--force' option. If the local git directory is not the correct repo
or if you are unsure what this means, choose another name with the '--name' option.

Since the 'error:' is already there in the first line, having it
prepended before 'If you want to reuse...' felt redundant to me.

Besides, it's more of an informational message about what a user
can do next, rather than a message that signifies an error.

If there is a preferred convention or label for such messages,
I can use that. The shell version did not have any such thing though.

Will switch over to that.

OK. It shouldn't be an issue to shorten it, because this is not
user-facing, and is only ever used within 'cmd_add()'.

We could. The reason why I was not too rigorous about this is
because I plan to eliminate the shell interface for this helper
eventually and call add-clone from within C, in the next few
patches.

But this is a small ask, and I can just add a quick check just
to be extra safe, so I'll do it.
