I am having some issues getting the slashcode via git.  I see on the slashcode site the git address and I tried 'git clone git://slashcode.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/slashcode/slashcode' but that dies with an error of 'warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout.'

I admit my git skills are weak.  I assume I am going about this wrong?  Any help would be appreciated.
