When I run the above I get the following:

/silo/olpc/doc/examples$ git-clone https://dev.laptop.org/~marco/edit-activity
Initialized empty Git repository 
in /silo/olpc/doc/examples/edit-activity/.git/
/usr/bin/git-clone: 310: curl: not found
Cannot get remote repository information.
Perhaps git-update-server-info needs to be run there?
