#3268: Git retry is inconsistent & has failure modes

Comment (by vlovich):

 My proposal:

 For backwards compatibility, retryFetch should be forwarded to retry.
 retry value of True is translated to (0, 1) meaning 0 delay & repeat once;
 if both retryFetch & retry are provided, then retry is taken.

 Any command that potentially accesses the network (i.e. clone & fetch)
 honor the retry mechanism.
