Error: A Git
clone operation failed¶
This error indicates that
dds failed to clone a Git repository.
dds will invoke
git clone as a subprocess to retrieve a copy of a
remote repository. There are several reasons this might fail, but it is best
to refer to the output of the
git subprocess to diagnose the issue.
A non-exhaustive list of things to check:
gitexecutable available and on the
Is the URL to the repository correct?
Is the remote server accessible?
Do you have read-access to the repository in question?
Does the named tag/branch exist in the remote?
If cloning a specific Git revision, does the remote server support cloning a repository by a specific commit? (Very often Git servers are not configured to support this capability).
Be aware if you are using SSH-style
git-clone that it will require the
correct SSH keys to be available on the system where
dds is running.
