Just a bit of random comments, leaving the full review to mentors.

Make it a habit to have a blank line between the initial block
of declarations and the first statement.

Write an empty loop on two lines, like this:

	while (... condition ...)
		; /* keep scanning */

If there is a NUL byte between begin and end, this keeps going and
the resulting string will contain one.  Is that a problem?

In general, this project is mature enough that we should question
ourselves if there is already a suitable line parser we can reuse
when tempted to write another one.

OK, so this tries to parse output from "git remote -v", so NUL will
not be an issue at all.  We will get a string that is NUL terminated
and has zero or more lines, terminated with LFs.

If that is the case, I think it is far easier to read without
a custom get-next-line wrapper, e.g.

	for (this_line = begin;
	     *this_line;
	     this_line = next_line) {
		next_line = strchrnul(this_line, '\n');
		... process bytes between this_line..next_line ...
	}

Similarly, consider if strcspn() is useful in implementing
parse_token().  See how existing code uses the standard system
function with

	$ git grep strcspn \*.c

> +			char *url = parse_token(&begin, line, &urllen);
> +			char *tail = parse_token(&begin, line, &taillen);
> +			if (!memcmp(tail, "(fetch)", 7))

At this point do we know there are enough number of bytes after
tail[0] to allow us to do this comparison safely?  Otherwise,

			if (starts_with(tail, "(fetch)")

may be preferrable.
