Looks useful. Wasn't aware that a bundle was something other than a tarball. We'll probably need to spell out the preferred process in the docs, and reference it frequently in communications. Otherwise you'll get quite a few clones instead. It appears that devs will have to add the remote for the live repository after they've cloned the bundle - otherwise they'll just keep pulling from the bundle which isn't all that convenient. Rich
