Hello gnulib maintainers,

It has come to the attention of Octave users that cloning the gnulib repository fails for some users, possibly because of firewall issues. The command suggested here:


results in a connection reset on the server side of things:

[gnulib]$ git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/gnulib.git
Cloning into gnulib...
fatal: read error: Connection reset by peer

Someone figured out that the following address works without reset:


(See http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/get-involved.html) Please consider resolving firewall access to the server (if that is possible) or providing a working repository address on the gnulib webpage. If the latter, we will change the Octave sub-repository address accordingly.

Thank you,
