    The Git-Beta documentation page says MOUNTPOINT is 'code'
    (without the quotes, of course) and
    that substituting one's project name for PROJECTNAME one backs up using

    rsync -av git.code.sf.net::p/PROJECTNAME/MOUNTPOINT .

    But that does not work, it gets an error
    that the mountpoint is unknown.
    The word code is not the true mountpoint, it seems.

    rsync -av git.code.sf.net::p/PROJECTNAME .

    seems to work though. Or at least it gets one's
    project files.

      No, the documentation says that the default mountpoint is 'code'. That is not always the case. What's the exact repo you're trying to get a backup of?

        Ah, I see the problem, need to add ".git" to the end of the path, doc updated appropriately.
