recipetool: create: fix handling of github URLs
For a while now, Github hasn't been advertising a specific repository URL since cloning the web URL with git works. Armed with this knowledge and fully expecting people to just paste the github URL, we need to handle this situation specially. If it looks like a github URL to the root of a repository then treat it as a git repository instead of a normal https URL to be fetched by the wget fetcher.
