Don't worry, we do not use any JIRA instance ;-)

I do not think it claims any such thing.

    $ git check-ref-format --branch @foo@{u}; echo $?
    fatal: '@foo@{u}' is not a valid branch name
    $ git check-ref-format --branch @foo; echo $?

The former asks "Is the string '@foo@{u}' a suitable name to give a
branch?" and the answer is no.  The latter asks the same question
about the string '@foo', and the answer is yes.

So I do not see any bug here.
