      Currently, one can't clone a git mirror of apache/flume from GitHub (and I suspect Apache's Git as well) in one single shot:

      {code}

      Harshs-MacBook-Pro:apache harshchouraria$ git clone git@github.com:apache/flume.git
      Cloning into 'flume'...

      warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout.
      Harshs-MacBook-Pro:apache harshchouraria$ ls flume/
      Harshs-MacBook-Pro:apache harshchouraria$
      {code}

      To fix it, I needed to understand that warning and apply:
      {code}
      Harshs-MacBook-Pro:apache harshchouraria$ cd flume; git checkout trunk
      {code}

      It may be that the HEAD ref is pointing to old name {{master}} instead of what Apache uses - {{trunk}}. Should be easy to fix.
