Resolving deltas: 100% (8226/8226), done. I cannot believe the only issue that kept it from working the first time was the trailing '/'! Compare: Unsuccessful: git clone http://drankin@.../scm/git/tde-packaging/ Successful: git clone http://drankin@.../scm/git/tde-packaging So is there no way to clone 'arch' alone, you have to pull the whole tde-packaging tree? The size isn't that much, but the bandwidth is very slow. Being able to clone a single distro's build scripts would eliminate over 50% of the demand on tde-packaging cloning.
