Cloning Public Read-Only Project Repos

To clone a public repo all we need is the http (no s) version of the URL. You can get this from GitLab (or GitHub) but normally you can just work it out from the following pattern:

git clone http://gitlab.com/skilstak/config/vim.git

You may note that it redirects to https, which is fine. [GitHub has trouble with https for this sort of stuff.]
