Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 220202
git-clone output is too verbose
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
Since my last update "git clone" command it's just too verbose, it prints
houndreds of lines like:
I got the same result cloning http://www.gnome.org/~alexl/git/gvfs.git/ and
Notice that the cloning works ok, just the output is weird
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
git-184.108.40.206-2.fc6.src.rpm. It didn't happen with previous versions.
just type: git-clone http://ktown.kde.org/~zrusin/dev/kimagefx.git
This is a result of a change in how upstream git works over http. You should
file a bug report with the upstream git maintainers to correct this. Note,
however, they discourage use of git over http in general as it is not an
efficient protocol for git.
Reported (and patch proposed) to upstream
I just pinged Junio to see if he's interested in taking such a patch. If
he's not, I'll close this as NOTABUG.
Created attachment 150508 [details]
enable git clone --quiet http://
This patch was sent upstream to give a quiet option for http clones
Junio took this patch, so it's now fixed upstream. Should make the next release.
