GIT Problems - Cloning TDE Source

From: Michael Howard <mike@...>

Hi Guys,

Firstly, my apologies to Tim, Slavek, Michele and Francois as I sent 
them a direct email regarding this problem because I thought the mailing 
list was down but in fact, it was my mail server blocking list messages 
because the Reverse DNS check failed for ''.

So, to my problem (Apologies again, if this gets duplicated);

I've been trying to clone the source repo for the last few days, using 
'git clone' as per the wiki, but it keeps failing with various 
disconnection errors. The repo is painfully slow (worse than watching 
paint dry) which probably isn't helping. My connection here seems fine. 
I got 1.5G of data at one point before it failed but as far as I know, 
there is no way to restart from a 'git pull' failure. My latest attempt 
has been running for 9 hours and I've got 107M of data at less than 
10KiB/s. Is the source available from anywhere else other than 
'' or has anybody any ideas on how 
best to proceed?

Is this due to the size of the repo and http(s)? It used to work fine.
