The Newcomers page (https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Newcomers) recommends cloning GHC with
> git clone --recursive git://github.com/ghc/ghc
I believe my students did this with success several weeks ago. But trying it again today leads to trouble with some submodules, e.g.:
> Cloning into '/Users/rae/ltemp/ghc-test/libraries/Cabal'...
> fatal: remote error:
> ghc/packages/Cabal is not a valid repository name
> Email support at github.com for help
> fatal: clone of 'git://github.com/ghc/packages/Cabal.git' into submodule path '/Users/rae/ltemp/ghc-test/libraries/Cabal' failed
Is there something wrong in the internets? Or should we update the Newcomers page?
