Relocated git repository for man-pages

[Note (Mar 2014): the info in the post below is historical. The man-pages git repo long ago returned to kernel.org, see https://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/download.html.]

Since kernel.org remains down, I've set up a man-pages git repo on github, at https://github.com/mkerrisk/man-pages. To clone the repo:

  git clone git@github.com:mkerrisk/man-pages.git

I'm undecided yet, but this may become the permanent location of the upstream repository.

Update 2011-10-04: as a couple of people pointed out (and as I noted in some later posts), the better commands for cloning the repo would be:

  git clone git://github.com/mkerrisk/man-pages.git


  git clone https://github.com/mkerrisk/man-pages.git

Since the repository is public, it would be better to use git://github.com/mkerrisk/man-pages.git instead (or https:// if you prefer).

@Anonymous: yep you're right. I noted this already in later posts, but perhaps this post should be updated.

How did you manage to update the post in November? ;)

And LWN reports that kernel.org is (partially) back, yet your posts still says "remains down".
