Interestingly, it worked for me. Kind of. It is *extremely* slow. It took about 15 minutes to clone the repo, which isn't big at all and should take no more than a minute to transfer (likely a lot less). Interestingly, the local clone created via cgit and https is 52 MB in size while a clone via the git:// protocol is only 20 MB. Something "interesting" seems to be happening when cloning via cgit. The repo does seem to be fully functional, though. Regards, -Markus
