I think the answer is "no", there is no way to specify anything other than a "path to the command" for gitproxy. So I think we should do this instead: -- >8 -- Subject: [PATCH] git-config doc: unconfuse an example One fictitious command "proxy-command" is enclosed inside a double quote pair, while another fictitious command "default-proxy" is not in the example, but the quoting does not change anything in the pair of examples. Remove the quotes to avoid unnecessary confusion. Noticed by Michael Haggerty.
