I just tried to clone a copy of the base repo to see if I could be of
any help, but it doesn't work for me:

[ben at euler ~/haskell/upstreams/emptydir]$ git clone
Cloning into 'base'...

[ben at euler ~/haskell/upstreams/emptydir]$ ls -l
total 0

I had a chat with the guys in #git , excerpts from :

21:40:43 < cmn> it looks like it only supports the dumb protocol
21:41:01 < cmn> so that should get fixed, it could be that it's broken in
                newer git versions, because nobody sensible sets that up
21:44:11 < benmachine> cmn: ah. so there's a bug but no-one notices because
                       no-one uses it these days?
21:44:56 < cmn> benmachine: that's what I'm thinking, yeah
21:45:19 < benmachine> cmn: ok. out of interest, how did you check which
                       protocol it was using?
21:45:29 < cmn> benmachine: wireshark
21:49:39 < benmachine> cmn: one more thing, is "the dumb protocol" literally
                       its name, or is it just a protocol that's dumb?
21:50:04 < cmn> its full name is dumb http transport

Looks like someone at needs to change how things are set up?
