Parse & construct GitHub repository URLs & specifiers

ghrepo extracts a GitHub repository’s owner & name from various GitHub URL formats (or just from a string of the form OWNER/REPONAME or REPONAME), and the resulting object provides properties for going in reverse to determine the possible URLs. Also included is a struct for performing a couple useful inspections on local Git repositories, including determining the corresponding GitHub owner & repository name.

When the serde feature is enabled, the GHRepo type will additionally be serializable & deserializable with serde.

let repo = GHRepo::new("octocat", "repository")?;
assert_eq!(repo.owner(), "octocat");
assert_eq!(, "repository");
assert_eq!(repo.to_string(), "octocat/repository");
assert_eq!(repo.html_url(), "");

let repo2 = GHRepo::from_str("octocat/repository")?;
assert_eq!(repo, repo2);

let repo3 = GHRepo::from_str("")?;
assert_eq!(repo, repo3);
