Re: how to download sourceforge branch read-only

Thanks for your help.
Aha, I I see what the problem is.

I had tried using http and not https.

I had used https for one of the earlier attempts from root and was
prompted for my sourceforge password (which didn't work apparently).
So I made the assumption that https access was only for project
members with write access.

Thanks for your help.
