Ehm, the mails between us and osuosl.org staff about switching the
uclibc.org projects from svn to git. The first mail was afaik:

From: Bernhard Reutner-Fischer <rep.dot.nop at gmail.com>
Subject: uClibc: switching from svn to git
To: support at osuosl.org

Did you never read them?

.. And busybox maintainer.

Again, my mail to the buildroot list described the setup for BR. I
don't quite know how you will do it for busybox / uclibc, but the
basic stuff stays the same.

To quote:

The repo can be browsed through cgit at:


It can be cloned anonymously using:

git clone git://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/ or
git clone http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/ if you're behind a
firwall blocking git access.

Developers can also access the repo over ssh with:

git clone ssh://uclibc.org/var/lib/git/buildroot.git

replace buildroot with busybox or uclibc and you should be good to go.

 Denys> Such instructions can't possibly be longer than 2 to 5 lines.
 Denys> This is the minimum necessary for users and developers to migrate.
 Denys> If I missed an email which contains them, I apoligize.

More like 73 mails ;)

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
