That's true. The build system seems to not create shallow clones. Need to verify but that's what it felt like (unless GitHub was being slow while I was testing). Note that most users will not deal with git since OpenWrt mirrors are tried first. > >> >> Signed-off-by: Rosen Penev <ros...@gmail.com> >> --- >> package/boot/uboot-envtools/Makefile | 13 +++++++------ >> 1 file changed, 7 insertions(+), 6 deletions(-) >> >> diff --git a/package/boot/uboot-envtools/Makefile >> b/package/boot/uboot-envtools/Makefile >> index 57a2ec5393..4d2cd342aa 100644 >> --- a/package/boot/uboot-envtools/Makefile >> +++ b/package/boot/uboot-envtools/Makefile >> @@ -12,12 +12,13 @@ PKG_DISTNAME:=u-boot >> PKG_VERSION:=2015.10 >> PKG_RELEASE:=1 >> >> -PKG_BUILD_DIR:=$(BUILD_DIR)/u-boot-$(PKG_VERSION) >> -PKG_SOURCE:=$(PKG_DISTNAME)-$(PKG_VERSION).tar.bz2 >> -PKG_SOURCE_URL:=\ >> - http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources \ >> - ftp://ftp.denx.de/pub/u-boot > > What about switching the FTP site to http://ftp.denx.de/pub/u-boot/ ? > [At least] I prefer HTTP over git, and if FTP is problematic, HTTP > seems reliable for this. > HTTPS seems to exist: https://ftp.denx.de/pub/u-boot/ > But it seems to point to some owncloud/nextcloud instance, so that is > unusable atm. Didn't know they had an HTTP mirror. It doesn't seem linked on the website. Note that GitHub is using HTTPS and they also recently killed TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support. That Nextcloud instance is probably for internal use.
