Thanks Calvin!

  I cannot believe the only issue that kept it from working the first time was
the trailing '/'! Compare:


git clone http://drankin@.../scm/git/tde-packaging/


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. Eg:

09:03 nirvana:~/tdenew/git/tde-packaging> for i in */; do echo "  $i"; du -hcs
$i; done
