Hi all,
First of all a big thank you to all for making git. With it being fast
and cheap (in relation to bandwidth and sizes for subsequent checkouts
as well as CPU usage) . Please CC me if somebody does answer this mail
as I'm not subscribed to the list.

The thing I have been failures number of times while trying to clone a
large repo. The only solution it seems is to ask somebody to make a
git-bundle and get that bundle via wget or rsync and then unbundle it
and then hopefully just sync it. The other way is to pray and hope
that somehow git clones ends in a success.

Somebody told me that there is/was some recent discussion on getting
something like :-

$ git clone --continue

which is/would be very similar to how wget works so you can continue
the large file download if the server supports resuming.

Is something similar being worked upon or discussed upon ? If yes,
please point me out to the discussion as it would be very beneficial
to people like me who have unstable network connection.

If not, then sorry to take your time.

in gratitude.
