Thanks for the information. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work for
me although the network policy isn't anywhere as draconian as yours
was/is. I tried cloning using different approaches but none seems to
work, maybe I'm doing something wrong:
1. I setup my .ssh/config suitably based on the above (and
experimented with various options)
HostName github.com # also tried ssh.github.com
ProxyCommand /usr/bin/corkscrew my_proxy.iitb.ac.in 80 %h %p
2. $ git clone --origin svn git://github.com/pv/scipy-svn.git scipy.git
And it does not work at all. I get this:
Initialized empty Git repository in /.../scipy.git/.git/
and nothing for a long while and eventually something like this:
github.com[0: 126.96.36.199]: errno=Connection timed out
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Connection timed out)
fetch-pack from 'git://github.com/pv/scipy-svn.git' failed.
svn has worked well for me in this regard. I have always been able to
checkin and checkout stuff with svn.
Finally, this worked:
proxycmd git clone --origin svn http://github.com/pv/scipy-svn.git scipy.git
proxycmd is just a simple shell script that prompts for my password and
sets up the http_proxy for the subsequent command.
