because I'm sitting behind a firewall I have to use cogito/git using
http. But http proxy needs special authentification with user &
password. It seems to me that this isn't supported with recent cogito/git?
In the past, for bk I used
$ export http_proxy=http://user:[EMAIL PROTECTED]:8080/
which worked. But no luck with cogito/git.
Looking into recent cogito/git, the reason for this seems to be that
cogito/git uses a combination of wget in scripts and curl in compiled
executables. Having a look to cg-pull script, this script uses wget.
Then, it calls git-http-pull if it thinks that http should be used.
Looking at http-pull.c shows that there curl is used for http access. If
I understand it correctly from man pages, wget understands user:password
syntax of http_proxy environment, but curl doesn't. As I understand it
curl understands only 'someproxy.some.where:8080' and wants the user and
password given as parameter of curl_easy_setopt. The curl_easy_setopt
man page tells something about CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD parameter.
