Very strange!  Which system are you using?  I'm using git from
Debian Squeeze and I check out regulary from git.sv.gnu.org and only
noticed problems some rare times.  I was able to complete a checkout
just now:

address@hidden:~$ time git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/gnulib.git

Hm.  Maybe you end up using git over http for some reason?  That will be
very inefficient for a large repository like gnulib.

Maybe you can download a snapshot by clicking 'snapshot' on this page:


Anyway, if you managed to get a checkout, then all is fine...
