My first guess would have been to use relative URLs. But after I've seen
that this feature is there only since 2012 (1.7.12) (see second mail)
I'm not so sure anymore.

It seems that there are not too much active distributions left that have
a git < 1.7.12 in the latest release:

But on the other hand for example CentOS 6 (which is one of the longest
supported distributions I know of) still has a git 1.7.1. And I would
expect that this is a distribution that has the potential to be used as
a build machine quite often.

So also relative modules would be a good idea, maybe we should wait for
something around two or three more years (CentOS 6 runs out of support
in 11/2020).

But most likely someone belonging to the github RTEMS group has to
create it there first, right?
