Hi everyone,

I sent this email yesterday to the git mailing list but I cannot find
it in any archive so I decide to send it again.
Does anyone know what has happened to the mailing list? I haven't
receive any email from several kernel related busy mailing lists for
several hours....

Subject: Remote hung up during `git fetch`
To: git@vger.kernel.org

Hi everyone,

I want to build packages for snap shoot of different branches from
different remote git repositories in the same local directory (so that
I don't need to recompile everything everytime.) and I am using a
combination of `git clone/checkout/reset/fetch` to do that. However,
during git-fetch, the remote sometimes stop responding or simply reset
the connection. This happens occasionally at least for both ssh and
git protocol (not sure about http/https) on github, bitbucket and also
kernel.org so I think it is probably not due to a weird behavior of a
certain host. Does anyone know the reason or is there anything I have
done wrong? And is there a better way to set the local tree to a
certain branch at a certain url? THX

My git version is ArchLinux package 1.8.0-1. (timezone
America/New_York in case the time stamp somehow matters)

Here is a script that always triggers the issue (at least now) and
it's output. (No I am not trying to merge git and the kernel... These
are just random public repos on kernel.org that can trigger the issue.
Although I am pulling from two repos from different project here, the
same thing can also happen on other hosts when the two repos are
actually the same project)
