problem git cloning maintenance branch over http

savitra sirohi
Hello, wanted to report this problem:

I am unable to clone the maintenance branch over http:

linux-yx85:~ # git clone
http://git.koha.org/pub/scm/koha-maintenance.git
koha-maintenance-clone
Initialize koha-maintenance-clone/.git
Initialized empty Git repository in /root/koha-maintenance-clone/.git/
warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout.

Thanks,

I'm not sure that it is set up for cloning over http

I have always cloned over git://

Does your firewall block you from cloning over git:// ?

Hi Chris, two of our customers have the git port blocked on their
firewalls. And it is hard for them to get firewall configurations
changed quickly.

I am sure it will help a lot of people if cloning were possible on port 80.

Hi
I am afraid it is not possible to change that right away.
Maybe you could add a tunnel on one of your servers to proxy git
protocol over 80.

Another option is to clone from here

http://repo.or.cz/w/koha.git

It is a mirror and allows cloning over http

Or you should setup your own gitweb, git clone Koha using git protocol as normal, then clone on client's system via HTTP to your repo.

HTTP is exceedingly less efficient than the git protocol, so it is not that strange to see it disabled.
