I wasn't talking about full-history. I was talking about the fact that we're distributing a bundle. If you clone a bundle, you won't have a remote for the live repository. You would need to add it, unless you plan to never push a commit back to the gentoo repository, and you plan to manually download bundles anytime you want to update your local repository. I'm not sure how exactly Robin was planning on making the full history available, but it sounded like it would also be distributed as a bundle. That means that you can certainly clone it - just type git clone path-to-locally-saved-bundle-file . If it is in some other format like a pack file then you would import it into a repository via a different command. Rich
