You might have a look at the options --local and --shallow to git
clone. The idea would be to have one full clone that pulls from
savannah, then any number of local clones pulling from from that one.

After running  git clone --local emacs emacs2
I get this:

; du -sh emacs/.git emacs2/.git
199M    emacs/.git
392K    emacs2/.git

The clone operation was pretty fast, too. 7 seconds on an SSD.
