Makes no sense. It wasn't slow before and it is not
slow from another continent as I explained in earlier
messages. I am cloning:


which I suppose means that I am not using http. Also
when I clone things from GitHub I get very high
speeds. Just an example:

[/tmp/download]:  git clone https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/firefox-ios.git
Cloning into 'firefox-ios'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 78, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (78/78), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (64/64), done.
Receiving objects:  67% (60910/89738), 305.23 MiB | 25.33 MiB/s

So I don't see why cloning should be slow by default.

To get the latest source code when I don't have a
local copy of it. (I build CM on more than one
computer and I don't always store long term the source)

Sure but this is a workaround. It doesn't remove the
central issue.

Nobody has laughed at me when I had similar issues
with my own web hosting in the past. On the contrary -
the hosting provider contacted their upstream providers
which fixed things. It usually took them a few hours
at most.

Thanks for sharing this one.
