That test does actually test something important: it tests that the result of applying pushInsteadOf to url does *not* override pushurl. Not the same thing as testing that pushInsteadOf does or does not apply to pushurl. The relevant sentence of the git-config manpage (in the documentation for pushInsteadOf) says: > If a remote has an explicit pushurl, git will ignore this setting for > that remote. That really meant what I just said above: git will prefer an explicit pushurl over the pushInsteadOf rewrite of url. It says nothing about applying pushInsteadOf to rewrite pushurl. > Perhaps we should do something like this?

Sensible test, assuming you want to enforce that behavior. I don't strongly care either way about that one, since it only applies if your pushInsteadOf rewrites could apply to your pushurl, and I only ever use pushInsteadOf to rewrite unpushable repos to pushable ones.
