How to download whole repository into one folder in the local machine ?


I need to download the whole repository from http://git.moblin.org/ into my local machine. Is there any standard procedure to do that instead of downloading each and every file.

I am working in Debian OS.

Can any body please help me in this topic.

Are you looking for something like this?

Like making a local repository so that other machines can install the software from the repository? I am trying this for Ubuntu machine lab and this seems a viable for me.

Firefox has add-on dTa (DownloadThemAll). You can try it.

There is a difference between downloading a file and a repository. Dta is a download manager built in firefox. It will allow to pause and restart the download of files and by chance if FF crashes, it will continue the download where it left the last time it crashed. I seriously this is what OP is looking for.
