I think there is a confusion. I use pushurl in my config and encourage
its use, I actually patched ./g to support @REPO@ for that very
purpose: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2010-October/001348.html

I'm just saying that there is no need to add username@ at all in the
git config, _even_ for the pushurl entry.
and --set-push-user is misleading, what it really does is 'set the
pushurl of the 'origin' source to a ssh access to the 'canonical' git
repos, adding a probably not needed(1) user in front of it'

But, since it does not otherwise hinder any other functions of ./g, I
really don't mind that much :-)


(1) If you did not setup your .ssh/config properly, the only way it
would work is if you used as your default ssh key the one used for
freedesktop.org, which is really not a good idea.
