Hi there! I'm trying to add git://, but I'm getting an "invalid git repo" message for some reason. Can you guys help? Also can you share some background as to why it's failing? I get the sense that this happens often...

    It should be fixed now

    The error messages aren't very transparent right now, and could be a bit more informative. Basically that's the error you encounter whenever there was trouble cloning the git repo that an admin needs to look into (or if the repo source is invalid).

    At one point this was happening frequently because we had maxed out the inodes on the host filesystem (causing disk full errors) and had rake cleaning tasks running intermittently. We just migrated to a new filesystem last week though, so problems should be less frequent.
