A git clone http://www.github.com/kete/kete.git fails

Trying to grab a copy of the 1.2 stable head using the web interface gives me the same archive (I think its master) not the branch I'd like. Is there something up with github ?

    Could be a github issue, yep. They have had some growing pains that result in availability issues at times.

    However I just tried this and it worked:

    git clone git://github.com/kete/kete.git kete_test # a bit slow, but works

    Could you try again and if it has resolved itself, resolve this ticket please?

    Hi Andy,

    Could you let us know if this issue persists or has been resolved, please?

    Using git:// works fine.

    The old facility where I could get the web interface on github to package up a branch for me doesn't seem to work anymore and only gives me master. This is useful for someone who doesn't want to set up their own git repo but wants a specific copy of the kete code base.

    It'd be good if http://www.github.com/kete/kete.git worked however as not everyone has the git port allowed through their firewalls.

    Hi Andy,

    Ah, perhaps this is better reported to Github as an issue than. Do you mind following up with them? Please resolve this ticket if you raise it with Github.com.

    I'll report it to github. Can you can change the ticket to resolved I don't see where I can close or resolve it ? I'm happy for you to elevate my priv's to allow me to resolve things but right now I think I'm just an enduser personage.
