gnulib via http:// instead of git://

Thorsten Meyer
a request from a poor user locked behind a firewall:
would anybody mind, if the source of gnulib was changed from
        git://git.sv.gnu.org/gnulib
to
        http://git.savannah.gnu.org/r/gnulib
?

I could do this myself. Only, I'm no expert in subrepos. Is the only thing to be
changed the entry in the .hgsub file?

thanks

Thorsten

Thorsten,

this has been discussed before when I ran into the same problem! For a local solution see:

https://mailman.cae.wisc.edu/pipermail/octave-maintainers/2011-September/025098.html
https://mailman.cae.wisc.edu/pipermail/octave-maintainers/2011-September/025099.html

JWE thought that instead of fixing it locally in Octave it should rather be fixed in the gnulib/build-aux/bootstrap script issued along with gnulib itself:

In the end I didn't get around to reporting the problem to the gnulib people, but maybe this should be done now since I'm not the only one?

Later,

        Alex

you need to modify
   build-aux/bootstrap

as it is called by autogen.sh

This seems to be a clean local solution to me:
