It looks like the jejb scsi-misc archive might not have been
configured properly for http transfers. There's a script below
which just uses git commands (not cogito) and the native git
protocol which tests out okay here.

A few comments though:

- Apparently the scsi misc tree you want is actually under "jejb"
rather than "marcelo" which you had in your script.

- It's better to use the native git protocol when possible
(well, the benefits are less on initial clone, but it's still
a good practice)

- You're causing a lot of unnecessary traffic for by
cloning a fresh copy of all these trees, it would be much better
to clone just _once_ and then simply "git pull" in any updates.

- Two of the trees you're cloning are very close in content to
each other (linux-2.6 & scsi-misc-2.6) so you can use the git
"--reference" option to share local objects saving disk space
(and reducing bandwidth needs even further)


cd /home/git/kernels/2.4 || exit
rm -rf linux-2.4 linux-2.6 scsi-misc-2.6
git clone $BASE/marcelo/linux-2.4
git clone $BASE/torvalds/linux-2.6
git clone --reference linux-2.6 $BASE/jejb/scsi-misc-2.6
