git clone git://
git clone git://
git clone git://

There’s also a Web interface that shows all changes and patches:

sounds pretty good but i don't understand why they switched to git, since they have migrated to svn from cvs not long ago... nevertheless - git is gnomes versioning system - so its legitime in my opinion
