Hi to all,

I'm trying to clone main repo on "https://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git" but that stucks indefinitely.

Is there something wrong on your end or do I have to check things at mine ( firewall etc) ?

Git clone of other repos seem to go through just fine...

I've tried few repos on github just now. I can clone them without a hitch.

Even wine-staging.


git clone https://github.com/wine-compholio/wine-staging.git

works without a problem...

BTW, using git instead of https protocol seem to be working ( "git://xxxx" ), but that's unsafe ( MITM etc)...

I have asked a few guys on local forum to try and they get the same result.

git clone from https: url doesn't work for them either.

It doesn't seem to be a firewall issue on our side as we don't share the same network or even ISP, so...

The instructions on https://wiki.winehq.org/Git_Wine_Tutori ... repository say
Quote:
You can browse the WineHQ Git repositories on the web at https://source.winehq.org/git. To download the main Wine repository:

Code:
git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git

so it sounds like it's intentionally been set up that way.

You can file a bug if you think it should be otherwise.

Gentoo 's Portage constantly protests against using git:// through the open net as it is open to MITM ( man in the middle ) attacks.

Everything I have on the system that is compiled from git-repo is fetched through https, not pure git protocol.

Also, if you decide to stick with git:// , it would be nice to change links on webpage accordingly.

In all Gentoo's ebuilds, git-repo is addressed through https, so they have suddenly stopped working, without visible reason...

Whether to change it isn't my decision; file a bug if it's important to you. FYI, there is a GitHub mirror at https://github.com/wine-mirror/wine that presumably works with https.

What links on what web page?

AFAIK nothing's changed recently on this end.
