Well, I certainly know the problem. I brought up the issue a few
month ago, when it was not as bad yet.
It would be very unusual to not have everything you need to build a
core activity on laptop.org, right? The easiest thing would be to
make git actually do something sensible like check out only the last
version. I tried git-tar-tree which supposedly does just that, but
couldn't make it work with the --remote option. Maybe some git expert
can advise what to do?
Alternatively, we might switch to a more general SCM, like
subversion. The problem would just not exist there. Would you be
willing to host a subversion repository on dev.laptop.org? I'd rather
not make the build depend on even more servers.
