OK! Thanks, git is selfcontained, yum conflicts so git could renew
itself after little adjustments
Usage: /usr/bin/git-clone [--template=<template_directory>]
[--reference <reference-repo>] [--bare] [-l [-s]] [-q] [-u
<upload-pack>] [--origin <name>] [--depth <n>] [-n] <repo> [<dir>]
Got local git 1.6.4 and remote (above) to yum upgrade, just
small trick (remote) looking old Fedora:
yum update git
Repository base is listed more than once in the configuration
Setting up Update Process
Could not find update match for git

seems certain git requires 1.6 for mirror or that mirror option is an
alias backcompatible to 2 prior gears. Can mirror via 2 vzfs
virtualized a.s.a.p. after little script. Proceeding anyway
compatibilizing with pleasure affirming success getting sources last
24 h both from Mr. Bond and default.
