Hi All,

Im not sure if this is a bug, or just "as implemented". But when cloning from a repo sitting on a web site that uses basic auth, the git client appears to forget its authentication info and ignores the 401's the server is sending back. It appears to initially login and get refs and HEAD ok, but after that it never authenticates again. Using a .netrc file this will work (or a url of the form http://user:pass@host though http://user@host wont), but i'm curious if theres a way of doing this without having to expose the password in some way?


Im using git 1.7.9.5 and when i clone i get the following:

$ git clone http://host/gitrepo/repo.git/
Cloning into 'repo'...
Username for 'http://host': user
Password for 'http://user@host':
error: The requested URL returned error: 401 (curl_result = 22, http_code = 401, sha1 = f7748ec924c30b4472132dabcf318d3c420a1a15) error: Unable to find f7748ec924c30b4472132dabcf318d3c420a1a15 under http://host/gitrepo/repo.git

while processing commit 1283f0d8043b7aafc4edd1c4627d465a92355a49.

And on the server side, the logs show:
