If the accessed document was "http://example.com" then href="//other-site.org" would refer to "http://other-site.org". If the accessed document was "https://example.com" it would refer to "https://other-site.org". So it basically means to keep just the protocol but not the host or anything else.

https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1630 has a similar example on [Page 10]

After thinking about this, the change on imgur.com seems to be intentional after all as this is an easy way to support http and https with the same html code. So other sites might adopt this in the future as well.
