I am wondering what algorithm is used by git clone command ?
When cloning from remote repositories, if there is a link failure and
the same command is issued again, the process should be smart enough
to figure out what objects have been already transferred locally and
restart the cloning process from the point it has been interrupted.
As far as I can tell this is not the case, each time I have restarted
the cloning process everything started from the beginning. This is
extremely annoying with slow, unreliable connections. Are there any
ways to cope with this situation or any future plans ?

Try asking this on the main Git list (git at, more
info at [1]) which is about developing Git itself.
