git clone fix

by Mathieu Poliquin

How to speed up “git clone” command and also fix frequent disconnects

You can skip syncing the history if you don’t need it by using the depth param

git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/openai/retro.git

If you need to the history afterwards you can always sync it later

TODO

You can also set these global git params as follows

git config --global http.maxRequestBuffer 100M
git config --global core.compression 0
git config --global http.postBuffer 1000M

To debug problems you can set these variables

export GIT_TRACE_PACKET=1
export GIT_TRACE=1
export GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1
