No idea. Can you clone any other GIT repo? Did you Google for it?

Btw, I found that the GIT tutorial at http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/gittutorial.html is very helpful for ramping up on GIT concepts.

   I tried to check out iron ruby sources following the instructions in  
http://www.ironruby.net/Download but bumped into problems:

$ git --version
git version

   I'm a complete git newbie so I have no idea what's wrong. Any ideas?
