Created attachment 224673 [details]
git diff file

git clone --branch main https://git.FreeBSD.org/src.git is correct
However, when a person who does not know git well can type git clone --branch main/ https://git.FreeBSD.org/src.git when they read the handbook.

I got this report from freebsd-questions mailing list, and I attach a git diff file.

I don't have a permission to commit, so how can I get access to doc.git?

Fixed, thanks for the patch!

The best way to access the repository without permission is submitting the patch using `git format-patch`, to keep the original author information.
