I don't have any explanation other than Git bootcamp was initially written
based on my personal setup.
I cloned CPython using SSH, and that's what I wrote in the devguide :)
You can use HTTPS if that works for you.
Perhaps someone else can explain better the difference between cloning via

I generally use "Compare and create pull request"
> from my clone's github page, as that seems simpler.

Note that the link is only visible within 30 minutes (or so) after you
pushed your branch to remote.
If you did not create the PR immediately after pushing, the link
disappears. In this case, the instructions in 32.10 will help (maybe?).
Can we assume that people will create their PR immediately?
Maybe an improvement is to mention the "Compare and create pull request",
and to do this immediately after pushing the branch.

side-topic: Does anyone have some sort of script/git
alias/program/whatchamacallit that will open the PR page once we push to
remote? (similar to what cherry_picker does)  That could be a time saver :)

pip install blurb
