It's an easy mistake for mercurial users to make, because under mercurial the 
human-friendly web viewer URL and the checkout URL are the same thing.

Git has to set up two different servers at two different locations, and 
doesn't always make the relationship between them easy to work out.  (I've 
never understood why they did that.)

He might mean he has to spend ten minutes fiddling with the gitweb to figure 
out what the checkout URL _is_.  (In extreme cases they're not even on the 
same server...)
