#3623 project git repository is failing readonly clone


Apologies for writing this as a bug. The readonly clone operation for the jedit project is failing for me.

> git clone git://jedit.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/jedit/jedit jedit
Cloning into jedit...
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
Exit 128

For comparison, I tried this, which succeeds:
> git clone git://ipscan.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ipscan/ipscan ipscan
Cloning into ipscan...
remote: Counting objects: 8684, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (1952/1952), done.
remote: Total 8684 (delta 5499), reused 8181 (delta 5189)
Receiving objects: 100% (8684/8684), 28.09 MiB | 1.29 MiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (5499/5499), done.

    As you can see here: http://jedit.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb-index.cgi
    There is no repo called "jedit", which is why you are getting that error.
    The information on the SF page is fixed and non customizable unfortunately.
    The correct repo WOULD be "jEdit", but this is not up-to-date and maintained currently, it is just some bad git-svn import from some time ago that shouldn't be cloned.
    For now please use SVN or "git svn" as source of jEdit core code.
    The plugin repos that are present are actively used though.
