Works here! I used a new Ubuntu 10.04 install on my laptop.

$ git --version
git version

$ git clone git://github.com/graemeg/freepascal.git fpc_github

Above was the full history (including branches: trunk, cpstrnew,
fixes) resulting in a 65MB download using the git protocol to access
the repository.

If you don't need the full history, add the parameter:  --depth 5
This will result in a history of only the last 5 commits of each
branch & tag, and result in a much smaller download.
