Deployment of a new package, PkgDev.register("OdsIO") set git as https://. instead of git@



Hello, I am following the documentation to pack and register a new package.
When I did run PkgDev.register(“OdsIO”) however I noticed that the Metadata commit has been set to use the remote git source using the https:// rather than the git@. format shown in the doc:

~/.julia/v0.5/METADATA$ git show
commit 25a38d405d1d96453fb75d063a3bbb8ce88e5fb6
Author: Antonello Lobianco <>
Date:   Thu Dec 8 14:51:06 2016 +0100

    Register OdsIO []

diff --git a/OdsIO/url b/OdsIO/url
new file mode 100644
index 0000000..cacd89e
--- /dev/null
+++ b/OdsIO/url
@@ -0,0 +1 @@

I was using the https://. format before, but in the meantime I switched to the git@. format using git remote set-url origin git+ssh://, but somewhere in the Julia configuration the https:/. format must have been remained.

So, before I continue and propagate this “problem” further, I would just ask you if this is a problem or not, or if I just change the METADATA information manually is fine ???
